I was wondering if I could get some user opinions on ghosting with LCD's.
I play mostly RTS games like Cossacks and Age of Empires III.
Will I notice any significant ghosting or lag with an 8MS monitor? or is ghosting more a factor when you play FPS games like Call of Duty etc..?

Well keep in mind that the response time listed on the box is nearly meaningless. It does not truly measure the response times of the monitor's colors. Technically 16ms would equal 60fps, but it is possible that monitors that list a response time of 8ms could have response times higher than 16ms.
As for FPS verses RTS. I would guess that with FPS, response times and high framerates are very important due to the fast paced action and need for accuracy during fast motiong. With RTS, it may be possible that you could accept a little bit of motion blur (though it still would not be something that I would want). I don't personally have an LCD, so I could be quite wrong on all of this.
