Default LCD Contrast

Hey guys i'm looking to buy a 19" LCD monitor sometime in the near future, any suggestions? BTW, i was wondering, is it better to have a high contrast ratio such as 1000:1, or a low one, such as 500:1. Thanks for the help!

generally go for higher conrast, lower ms rating, higher brightness
