Default Which monitor to choose?

Hi, I was looking for Monitors for a new computer I am going to build and I have it pretty much narrowed down between two. I am going to be using them for Xbox 360 Gaming and PC Gaming and watching movies on the PC. I also purchased separate speakers. The only things drawing me toward the Westinghouse is the extra inputs for probably watching Cable TV and the brand name. The things drawing my toward the DCLCD is the response rate, contrast, and the HDCP support which the Westinghouse doesn't have. That also brings me to my second question, what is HDCP and what does it do?

Westinghouse LCM-22w2 Black-Silver 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor


DCLCD DCL22A Black 22" 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1

The Westinghouse does offers alot of connection options, but the DCLCD has much better performance specs.

HDCP is basicaly the ability to accept HD video input of 1080p.
