8ms even experiences ghosting.

If you don't have a big budget, get a nice CRT instead of a mediocre LCD.

Are you joking!

I have never seen ghosting ever.

12 ms is perfectly fine, and guess what if you buy whatever moniter your looking at, and you experience ghosting then you can call me a lier, But I will bet my life that you won't.

Save up a little more for the 8ms LCD. I have play CS 1.6 on both an 8ms lcd and a 12ms lcd and I do notice a difference. I don't think the price difference is that much anyways.

I can see ghosting on a 12ms LCD. Very off putting when trying to shoot someone who is going across your screen.

In the end, it depends on the model you are going for.
