Default LCD monitor: Viewsonic or Spectre?

I've heard nothing but good things about Viewsonic, but I was just curious to how spectre performs in comparison. Im so used to my trinitron tube monitor, that i think ill have trouble adjusting to lcd. I just dont have room for a CRT though.

Im looking at the 20" widescreen moniters from viewsonic and spectre

The Spectre has a better contrast ratio, whould that make much of a difference.

yeah, i plan to play LOTS of games once i get my new system together (just ordered the parts today!!), pretty graphical games too, like BF2 and COD, so im looking for a monitor to go with it. I've heard that viewsonic is really good and detailed when it comes to graphic art, but how are they with video and games??
I know spectre makes tvs, so you think they're moniters would be good at video too.
