Default Which Monitor? Need Advice

My HP TFT monitor just burn't out! I need a new monitor. Have narrowed it down to the following two. Look under the specification link.

http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...5&GroupID=1172

Or

http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...roductID=16158

The Samsung has 500:1 contrast ratio, 4ms response time and DVI interface.

The Asus is an LCD monitor has no DVI interface but has a 800:1 contrast ratio, 5ms respnose and is slightly cheaper.

Which one should i get? Does the Samsung having DVI interface compensate for lower contrast ratio?

Thankyou for your time and advice

The ASUS is still a very nice monitor, and for the much lower price, it's worth it
