Default Monitor, dunno which one to get

After some recent posts about LCDs being bad in comparison to CRTs and how manufacturers say they are 8bit when in reality they are 6+2bit, im so confused. I need to know which monitor to get.
these are the requirements.
-lower than 8ms response time
-19"
-below $450 Canadian.

Or just list which monitors you guys use and what performance you get from them.

You might want to look at this:

The LG L2000C is very good (true 8-bit, very good specs), but out of your pricerange. No matter, if you can get it, I say save up the money and do it, because a monitor is something you will have for a very long time (most LCDs last for 50,000+ hours, compared to 10,000 on CRTs), so you want to get something of good quality so you won't say "darn, I wish I had saved the extra money and gotten the nicer one" later down the road.

Here is a link to all the places pricegrabber knows:
http://www.pricegrabber.com/p__LG_El.../search=l2000c

I have no idea if any of them ship to canada. The VX922 is good for gaming, but not much else. It also has a 6-bit panel.

EDIT:
the link dosn't work.
Just go to pricegrabber.com and type in l2000c. Then press the link that says "new 24 sellers" in the upper-left to show all the hidden sellers and to get cheaper prices

no its not canada computers, they have it for 450, i just saved 5 bucks buddy, well technically 5.75 cause of tax. Actually i think if you go through these stores you can save quite a bit on ur parts, it save me about a minimum of $100. here is the link, its all the stores on College and Spadina, but half dont have websites so you gonna have to go there to see their prices.

its a very helpful site for all the stores in canada, i was looking for places to cut corners in one of my posts and i managed to get it down to 2800 with tax, now it costs me about 2600 with tax. pretty good. and with that 200 price cut i was able to ay 45 more dollars for the vx922 instead of the 924 which is bad.
