Default New Screen

Hello people,

I have decided to get a new screen since dual monitor gaming doesn't really suit me. My plan goes like this:

1. Get a screen with HDMI (so I can connect my DVD player to it).
2. Make it my PC monitor when Diablo 3 or something worthy playing comes out.

I was looking at an LG 22inch , 2ms, 1:50k, 1920x1080 that is within my price range...

Are the specs good for gaming , as in todays terms ?

Or this one:

Samsung 24" , 1:50k, 5ms not 2ms, HDMI, 1920x1028 for like 5 bucks more.

What do you say ?

5ms is fine. May as well go with the bigger one. Also, Samsungs are awesome

I think that you will not notice anything between 5ms and 2ms, and if it's 1920x1080, not 1920x1028 that you put :P , then that is definitely worth it. My father has a couple of 23" Samsung monitors that have done pretty well by him. And $5 more...can't go wrong there. Do it up!
