Default A good display?

Alright, I may be buying a new monitor soon and here's my criteria- 19 inch, LCD, black, under $400. My current LCD is a generic brand and has 2 broken pixels right smack dab in the middle of the screen. So, any suggestions?

Whatever you get, use it as your primary and the one you have now as a second display.

Nah, can't. Giving my parents the current one 'cause there's just broke. Anyway, what does the "ms" thing mean? Whats better: 2ms or 12ms?

Generally, lower the better. So, 8ms is great and 25ms isnt. But, these numbers are kind of made up anyways, so it depends on the panel.
