Default Monitor Responce times

Quick question for all of you.

I'm looking at some Acer 19" regular LCD monitors to use to set up a dual-display. We have two at my work right now that have DVI. THe only difference between the two is the responce rates. One is 2ms, the other is 5. Will I notice a difference at all?

The one with 2ms is about $50 more expensive, but I'm willing to spend it if the difference will be noticeable.

Meh, no, not noticable for gaming, and at that rating, you won't notice ghosting or anything. It'd bother me, but I play games that need very accurate timings, but 2ms to 5ms, is hardly anything, and I wouldn't worry about it.
Even 12ms monitors wouldn't have ghosting to the casual eye.

I don't think the difference would be that noticeable. I have a 19" Acer X192W widescreen LCD w/5ms response time and see no ghosting at all. But to tell you the truth, if could afford to get one with a lower response time, I'd do it.

Mine is 5ms, no noticeable ghosting. I would get the one that looks better.

Anything less than 8ms are considered superior to the naked eye.
