Default LCD question

Im looking to buy an LCD monitor for a limited budget and stumbled with this one:



Its Viewsonic VA712 17" LCD monitor with 8ms response time. Is 8ms a tolerable amount in eliminating or somehow, reducing ghosting effects? And also I have a video card which is Inno3d GeForce FX5200, will it be compatible?

What do you call on the port for the LCD monitor that should I look in my video card?

Your card can handle DVI, so go with that.

8ms is not that big of a deal. You won't see a lot of ghosting, if any.

If this deal is super great, go for it. If it's not, look for a 19".
