Default LCD Monitors

I am in the market for a new Monitor. Can anyone tell me whether it is better to go for a faster response time or a better contrast ratio?
I mean if I had to choose a monitor with a 12ms response time but a 500:1 contrast ratio or a 25ms response time with a 700:1 contrast ratio--which is the one to choose???

for gaming or watching fast paced movies, definetely the 12ms

if not, then go with the 25ms
