View Full Version : LCD Monitor specifications for gaming

I'm looking into a LCD monitor for gaming. I'm going from an old CRT but am totally confused by all the specifications.

SO...I want to spend no more than $200, I want a widescreen between 17 to 19in.
What do I look for in Contrast Ratios & Response Time?

My video card is a XFX Geforce 8600 XXX

This is my video card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150229

Thank You!!:)
