Default LCD w/o ghosting in games

what lcd do you use?

generally i check ghosting with 3dmark05 (my 30ms sony lcd does fine in CS, but once i move to 3dmark05, it's ghosting everywhere)

oh btw, i need an lcd (17 or 19) that's cheap (not cheap cheap), with dvi (preferably) and won't ghost in games (or has minimal ghosting compared to other lcd's)

I like the Samsung 915N and Samsung 710N, but both don't have DVI input.

I hate saying this, i really do, but some of the best LCDs around are from Dell. Their ultrasharps are quite goo.d

However, CRTs are better for gaming.

Anything under 16ms should do fine. 12 and under will be beautiful.

You won't find a 12ms or 8ms (do 8ms LCDs even exist?) for cheap anywhere.
