Default LCD Monitor

I'm just looking for a really nice 19" LCD monitor, no built in speakers, pretty much just a monitor.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116375

Was looking at that one, anyone have experience with it? I own a ViewSonic CRT right now, pretty nice.

But if anyone has some suggestions, please tell, and thanks in advance.

What would that do for gaming, and web browsing? I'm trying to learn as much before purchasing something.

Alright, what's the contrast ratio and DVI mean/do? Sorry, quite a noob when it comes to LCD monitors.

alright. so a big ratio means that the black is blacker and the white is whiter... 900:1 ratio is greater than a 400:1 ratio... DVI and VGA are video ports. DVI can output a much better picture than a VGA port can.


the blue one is VGA, the white one is DVI..... the circle black one is S-Video, that's used for stuff like camcorders/cameras and some other stuff:
