16ms is good. Well you want the brightest monitor possible. because you can always turn the brightness down when needed.

Also try to get one with TFT. Alot of them have that, but just make sure.

That looks good. Damn 12ms?!? I remember when 25ms was high end.

but with that 12ms you should see little or no ghosting in games/movies.

Don't buy Acer. Buy Dell or Samsung.

Viewsonic VX924 19" LCD Monitor

- 1280x1024 Optimum Resolution
- 550:1 Contrast Ratio
- Viewing Angle 160° horizontal, 160° vertical
- 4ms G2G Response Time
- 270 cd/m2 Brightness

- One DVI-D Input


You want a low ms time, has to be below 16ms, 12ms or lower prefereable

You want a high contrast ratio

DVI input, but most of them are anyway.
