Default Brightness high or low.

I want to purchase a really good LCD monitor (not too expensive) and i think i found a pretty good one.. but one question..

for brightness which is better

250cd/m2 or 500cd/m2.. what does that mean by the way.

these are the ones im looking at

and also.. what effects more.. response time/ contrast ratio/ or brightness?

and im not really a gamer.

500 cd/m2 is better I dont know what it stands for but I do know that bigger is brighter in this aspect. Also brighter LCD's have longer lives, after about 50,000 hours your LCD hits half life meaning it's only half as bright. If your not playing for games I'd focus on resolution, bigger is better. Other aspects are going to be relativly standard. Gamers tend to look at the responce time. For every day use it's not going to make a difference 25ms is good all round. I've never heard of anybody going on contrast ratio for an lcd.
