Default monitors

i need a little help and advice on 2 monitors.

First question : would i see any ghosting in games on a 24inch with a 5ms response time?

Second question : which monitor would all of you go for?
Samsung SM-2443BW 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black
or
Dell TrueColour E248WFP 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Midnight Grey

I'd go for the Samsung.

No you won't see ghosting with 5ms, unless the monitor is of exceptionally poor quality.

The dell has better brightness, however the Samsung has a picture of one of the hottest girls ever to live. It's your call.

I would go with the Samsung as well. I have a old 930BF 4:3 Samsung LCD and i loved it since the day i bought it. They are good monitors.

thing is, i had a samsung before and the power lead kept on sparking and turning my monitor off, so im a bit skeptical, would the dell be worse picture quality than the samsung?

That's not really a common problem with any monitor, so chances are you either broke it or it had a major defect.

They have warranties for a reason.
