They work fine, and use all of the monitor real estate.

The lower the response time the better response (less ghosting with fast motion).

Plus, DVI gives you a better picture that VGA.

for a good gaming TFT you need to spend alot more money, if you dont have much id always go for a CRT cheap and reliable. Just turn up the refresh rate to 85 so you dont go blind
