Default Good monitor?

I was thinking of getting this samsung lcd monitor.. its 8ms which would be good for moderate gaming right? i dont want to spend the extra money on a 2ms monitor but would this be a good monitor? http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=17776

Yes, that'd be a nice monitor for gaming.. 8ms response time is fine.

Yep, I would agree it would be a great monitor. 8ms would be just fine for some gaming. Samsung rocks too.

Yeah, it would be moderate. Although colors that look alike in the game, might kinda blurr together. Although, it will do you just fine

uh, no dude, the Samsung 940B is one of the best gaming monitors. And how does it suck? And how is the rosewill one better in performance? I think the Samsung one even has DVI.

Samsung are the best it has to be said, very nice. Unless they do Toshiba Monitors?

You won't want to pay the extra for 2ms, its not worth it :P Unless you have a screen so big it takes a long time to refresh.
