My 19" Sony SDMHS95PS (I THINK thats what it is) has a 12 ms refresh rate........

I play WoW, CS:S, BF2, RCT3, and others.... haven't had any issues yet (other than when the first one died on me within the first 30 days, but this new one has been holding strong for months now).

An eight or twelve on the response time is acceptable for gaming provided that it is the Black-to-White measurement and not the Gray-to-Gray. I've seen monitors with 8ms g-t-g, but they get 20ms on the b-t-w scale which is a little too high for gaming. The difference between 8 and 12 shouldn't be overly noticeable, but keep in mind that the lower it is the less likely you will be to see any ghosting.
