2) Could u guyz recommend some gd lcd monitors 4 gaming. i've been using crt monitors all my life n i want a new look 4 my new system that i'm gonna build. i also need some free desk space.

3) What is ghosting?

Thanks 4 yer help guyz!! I really app it.

an example of ghosting is when you move your mouse cursor across the screen and behind it you see a trail of white fading out...kinda hard to explain lol

Ghosting is basicly blurring, I guess, it is hard to game with and kinda hurts your eyes after awhile I think

You could get a huge *** CRT for that kinda money

Yeah ghosting is exactly as it is described. As well as mouse trails you will notice that windows and icons have a ghostly shadow behind them, almost as if there is 2 of them!!

It is kinda scary ... LOL

That looks like a pretty good lcd with the 12ms response time. I have never seen it in action so i can not really say. When buying a monitor i would recommend finding somewhere were you can see what the monitor looks like in person, especially if you are going to spend 500 dollars on it. 12ms is supposedly as good as it gets right now which means it shoudl be good for gamming. I have heard a lot of good things from samsung, so you should be ok with that. I do agree with merlin though, you could get a huge *** crt for 500 dollars if space isn't an issue.

i guess you rn't a hardcore gamer seeing you that you're getting a lcd monitor and you're playing cs and cod low vga quality games. I would never go for an lcd if you are a gamer. a "real " one

Whats your puter specs?

To be honest, If your COMP sucks you could probably do a good UPGRADE for 500 or less.

500 on a Monitor is a waste IMO.
