Default 19" LCDs

I want a decent 19" LCD around the $350 - $500 range, and I was wondering which one would be the best for gaming. I was reading at a few review sites and I couldn't get a real accurate answer on which was the best for gaming so I decided to come hear and find out. Any help would be much appreciated.

If it aint broke, fix it till it is.

Sapphire ATI Radeon x850XT

my dad's got a 19inch benq. it's a 25ms resposoce though, but the quality of it is real good.
so i can only assume that a 15ms and under would be good as well?

I have a 19" samsung 190s but it's not that great on response time. I recommend the new LG ones. They had them at CES 2005 and they look great.

the viewsonic is the best choice imo

however, i believe dell has sharper images and are also great for gaming (the dell 19 inch 1905FP ultra sharp)
