Default OK Monitor?

I was looking at this monitor at Best Buy the other day and it seemed pretty nice. I was wondering if it was a good monitor in general and also for gaming?

http://www.samsung.com/Products/Moni...19MEDSFXAA.asp

They were selling it for about $270. Are there any other monitors that I could look at that might be a bit cheaper but still of good quality or where I can find this monitor for cheaper?

That's ok that they don't ship to UK because I don't live there hehe. That's a nice monitor, thanks for the suggestion hmammen. What about these two:

In my opinion, it is better to buy PHILIPS LCD because the lifeshell are much more longer i think.. i would take a 17 inch with 8 ms reaponse time with sRGB and the power usage are also lower than other LCD i think....
I just brought this kind of LCD with onil singapore$300 and it works well and also it good for gaming and also for watching video
