Default Viewsonic VX922/24 vs. Samsung 940B/BF

which has the best performance for the price out of these 4.
performance/price. keep in mind some of these dont come with a DVI cable but im not sure which ones.. itll be great if someone can say which ones...

http://www.canadacomputers.com/index...296&cid=MT.983

im having problems because say i choose the VX924 over the 940B, and the VX924 is just a few bucks away from the nexx step of the 940B which is 940BF.. so is 940BF worth that extra bucks... but if it is then thats just ANOTHER few bucks down from VX922.. now is that worth it? soo much confusion so little time as i am about to purchage my computer TOMORW.. hard decision.
ALSO i heard the 940B doesnt come with a DVI cable, so if i was to buy the DVI cable then aint i better off getting the 940BF? AHH im freaking out lol.. which is better?? SAMSUNG OR VIEWSONIC!!

Don't get either of them, check out this:
http://forums.anandtech.com/messagev...&enterthread=y

The VX922 is a 6-bit panel, and so are the Samsung 970P and the Viewsonic VP930B, even though they are advertised as 8-bit. A 6-bit panel can only display 262,144 colors, an 8-bit panel can display 16,777,216 colors, just like a CRT. The best 8-bit LCD that is actually 8-bit and not falsly advertised, and has specs good enough for gaming is the LG L2000C. It is pricy however, but it is your only option if you want something that will truly display as many colors as a CRT and be good for gaming.

They can match CRT quality, just not at prices under $500 USD.

I would get the VX922, 2ms response (or so they say), and it does come with a DVI cable.

It is a 6-bit panel, but it uses dithering to "trick" your eyes into seeing 16.2 million colors (as do most 6-bit panels). However, it is not always perfect, and it sometimes causes color banding. A true 8-bit panel can display not 16.2 million, but 16.7 million colors, just like a CRT. The only true 8-bit LCD that is good for gaming and that dosn't lie about being 8-bit (like the 970P and VP930B), is the LG L2000C. It is not cheap however, here is the cheapest I could find it:

I am going to be getting it soon. It also has some nice specs, 300 cd/m2 brightness, .255mm dot pitch, 800:1 contrast ratio, 8ms GTG response time.
