    The Sony KP-46WT500 w/DVI can be had for under $2000. Maybe someone familiar with this set will chime in.
    Good luck,
    Vin

    The Hitachi 51UWX20B has a DVI input and is a great set. Circuit City and Sears both currently list this model for $2199. You can probably get them to come down 10% with a little negotiating.

    I haven’t checked the price of the Sony 34XBR800 for a while. It was ~$2,200, so you might be able to fit this into your budget. If a direct view display meets your needs, this is a fine set.
