Default 19" LCD MONITOR HELP!! Samsung 930BF or ViewSonic VX922

Ok so im looking for a 19" monitor for my new system to be:

Opty 165 Dual core (most likely OC'd to 2.6ghz(FX60!!)
Dfi Ultra-D
Gskill DDR 500 2GB
Sapphire X1900XT 512MB
WD 250GB SATA2

and which of these two LCDs are best for gaming, please take note that these prices are in GB £ and that its worth more than US $

Samsung Syncmaster 930BF 4ms

ViewSonic VX922 2ms

Will i notice a difference between 4ms and 2ms?

Does the difference in Contrast Ratio make a difference?

How much chance do i have that either one will arrive to me with NO dead pixels and great reliability?

I have the Samsung 930B,which is the 8ms version of the BF. I am pretty happy with it, although I would say go Viewsonic just because of the things I've heard about it. You can't go wrong either way though.

From what i heard 2ms to 4ms is not much of a diffrence, You can't notice anything. And you say your going to OC your opertrons to 2.6GHz, dosen't mean it's going to acheive performance as high as the FX60.

i also want to know the answer for that, i know the ms aint really a difference but the contrast ratio of 550:1 versus 650:1, is there a difference?

Reviving the thread as i'm about to order one of these LCD's soon.

Samsung goes for around £250

Viewsonic goes for around £290

read first post to know the difference.
