Question Lcds?

hello, i was wondering bout the ol' lcds.
about response tiems, contrast ratio, and dot pitch

ok response tiems: i was wondering if a 25 ms lcd will get by decently for fps games or i would need to go lower to 16 or 12

contrast ratio:my friend was telling me the most important thing in lcds is contrast ratio. for games ya need a 500+ ratio what ev

dot pitch: is that just for veiwing angles?

im new to the whole lcd thing and dont wanna pay a load of money for a worthless peice of crap. i dont have insanlyt high standards. but wanna make that right decision for the comp i wanna build
thanks

it would depend on the monitor itself, CRT's always have a higher refresh rate.with CRT's verses LCD's, I'd go with CRT's; most importantly they're less expensive.

If you're playing any game that benefits from fast high FPS, stick with a CRT. LCD's are not quite there, yet, in that respect. They are stable and bright and great for general applictions though.
