If your using it for gaming, then i recommend getting a 19" There's not that much of a price difference and they look alot better
If you still think your gonna stick with the 17" i suggest going with this:
If you don't like that, i suggest looking for reviews of monitors from Samsung. They have made a couple of good monitors, and i think they're worth a look at

Yea DVI will give you a better, clearer picture, but analog is still good too. If the prices are the same, go with DVI. For gaming, try to stay under 8ms for the response time, and a 600:1 or higher contrast ratio.
