5ms is fine. 2ms is for giggles.

Budget?

The average human eye cant recognise the differences between a 2ms and a 15ms black to black time. A 8ms or lower will be fine but there is no point paying a premium for lower.

I don't know about that, Famous Maker? I have never heard of that brand. It's not an HP monitor, it just says it's "comparable" to one.

This is a good one:
Newegg.com - Acer X193W+BD Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 (ACM) - LCD Monitors

$10 off with a promo code and free shipping.

Famous Maker just means its a "name brand" monitor. They usually arent allowed to say what the actual brand is on sales because its probably cheaper than they are allowed to advertise by the manufacturer. Everyone has seen those commercials on tv that advertise like that.

Yea the Samsung 933BW is nice too. The Acer I suggested has a better contrast ratio and comes with a DVI cable. Not sure if that matters to you or not, but I'm not sure if the 933BW does.
