Default Monitors - LCD which one?

hello, besides getting a new AMD athlon 4000+ i also plan to get a new montior in the semi near future. currently i have a flat panel CRT. which is good enough at the moment but ive been hearing more and more how good LCD monitors are getting now fior gaming. i have a X850xt and would like to know if a new monitor would take advantage of everything my card can throw out. ive had a quick look around the net and found that Dell seems to be pretty good. this was the monitor ive been looking at: DELL Ultrasharp 1905FP 19" http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/lcd19.html

its in my price range of about 300 but if there are any other LCD monitors that anyone recommends please post a link up. thanks

If you want to use it for gaming then that probably will not be the best monitor to get. You might experience some "ghosting" in your games. Look for ones that have a response time of 8ms. I have also heard people going as high as 12ms.
