Default Opinions por favor...

I'm not a monitor expert by any means, and I was wondering if I could get some opinions on this monitor. It's only $199 right now after a mail-in rebate and has a 12ms refresh rate which should be good for gaming. Thanks in advance for the help.

Could you suggest a better monitor that's still relatively cheap? Sorry for the inconvenience, but I know nothing about good monitors.

Do you think it would still be good for gaming?

CRT's are better for gaming but if you need LCD then that one looks good!!
