Default Is this a Good 21' LCD screen for Gaming

Hey,
I have been seurching around and lcd screens have gotten alot cheaper since they first came out and i want a good LCD monitor but a good size. And i was thinking of this one http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/pro...065557&catid=# So please give me some advice, and i live in Canada by the way. So the money is different. So i think the response time if good and everything about it. But tell me if i am wrong. The games i will play most is Far cry 2 and Battlefield 2.

My system specs are. AMD athlon 3700+, 2gig, Nvidia 6600GT OC. A8N Nvidia Ultra motherboard. Thanks for your help.

Nope it is not. A gaming monitor usually should have 8ms or lower. This has 12. Honestly, I see no difference because I use a 16ms monitor.

Try and find some monitors that have 8ms or lower.

Nah, I think it's OK. I use my 14ms screen for these types of games and it does what you want

You should get the 19" Viewsonic VX922 LCD. It's one of the best.

I thought the higher Response time would mean faster game play? And ya i dont know about it being produced by HP cuz all the stuff i have bought by them have died. So would this be a better LCD = http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/prodde...est%5Fcookie=1 ?. Cuz i want something that will last awhile and not get boring. Thanks for the responses, helps alot.
