Default Need LCD stat!

Ok my birthday is today and I wanna ask my parents for an LCD but look - SCEPTRE X23WG-1080P Black 23" 8ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 500 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail - SCEPTRE X22WG-1080p Black 22" 2ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

the 22" is the same price as 23"? WTF!

I know the 23" has a smaller contrast ratio. Would I notice a big difference in quality?

Current Build:
CPU: AMD x2 3800
Case: thermaltake tsunami
Ram: 2x1gb OCZ ddr4pc3200
GPU: 7800 GT
PSU: Antec 500w
Mobo: DFI lanparty

23 inch is a weird size....don't know if all games will support it. The reason of the price is the response time. 8ms from 2ms. However 8 is fine for gaming though..

get the 22", it has more resolution and contrast ratio for cheaper price

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Meh the Sceptre is the cheapest and apparently has the best response time and contrast ratio so stick with that.
