My old samsung 17inch piece of crap LCD finally decided to crap out and Futureshop is replacing my LCD under its warranty.

I swear that I am moving to DVI and the only 2 available models with DVI is this

Benq FP951
250 cd/m2 High Brightness
700:1 Ultrahigh Contrast Ratio
25ms Response time

Samsung 172X
270 cd/m2 High Brightness
50:1 Ultrahigh Contrast Ratio
12ms Response time

as yo u can see, the samsung has wayy better response time but lower contrast ratio.
I do lots of photo editing and occasional games + movie, will the contrast ratio really matter that much in this case?

Please advice me..thanks

The 25ms response time of the BenQ LCD would probably bother me too much.
