    OT- Looking to buy an LCD monitor

    This will be used by two of my nieces, mainly for surfing and MSN, but occasionally for uber-n00b gaming :haha:

    Anything I should look out for? Is 8ms response time good?

    I'm looking for something that is reasonably cheap, doesn't have to be the best, but will give a reasonable gaming experience.

    Suggestions.......anyone?

    Just bought a Samsung SyncMaster 940MW 19.1" widescreen. Has built in tv tuner as well. Very nice, gaming whilst watching the TV picture in picture.

    Messed up my screen shots though :cry: Need to find a cure for that. Great screen all in all though. :up:

      Hmmm, this is the one I'm looking at right now, comments anyone?

      Remember that this isn't for me, so a good gaming monitor is not the priority, on the other hand, I do want it to be able to play games without too much ghosting.

      Also, does using the DVI input give a genuine advantage over VGA? Would you be able to see the difference?

          Once you go wide, you won't ever want to go back.

              LG L2000C, but I think it may be a wee bit expensive

                        Just got a 19" Digimate from a well known online retailer on offer at £135 incl VAT.

                        12ms but with the DVI input, no ghosting at all.
