Default this LCD monitor pretty good buy?

im planning on getting this later this year, n hopefully a second next year:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824254005

one thing im dissappointed about this monitor is the contrast ratio:

700:1 contrast ratio

should i go for a higher one in the 1000s? or just stick to 700? I just want a good monitor that will give me a good picture at a good price.

Not a bad price either, after rebates.

The one u put is a good buy, except the brand isnt well known here, this is the one i have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009100
and its good as ****, only 700:1 contrast as well but 5ms response time and looks very bright and clear, great price as well.

After the rebate of the one I suggested, it's worth more than the one you picked. It's got 1000:1 contrast, 20.1", and a bigger resolution.

no point in posting a monitor that you will be buying later in the year. itll be outdated or a better one will come along by then.
