Hi guys I've seen a few posts about what's the best 19 inch LCD monitor and after reading them I still don't know what to get :( 
ok here is what I need a LCD for:
"this will be my first LCD monitor ever"
I use to play alot of games and now after a break I ordered Battlefield 2 and I want to play this game everyday once I get it. So I need a good LCD monitor that would play a game like that without problems and I also watch movies once in awhile and some web design.
I want the best possible 19 inch with the fastest response and I want "if I can" spend as much as $700 only.
PLEASE I ask ANYONE, hopefully anyone also @ the tomshardware testing labs to help me out on this one because after a extensive research no one seems to really know right now, and the reviews everywhere are kind outdated.
I heard and I have seen the 4ms ones as the VX924 but are they good for graphics? you know like watching a movie?
GOD I hate to feel so lost as I'm right now :( 

HELLLLLLLLP :D 

I would like to thank every that will read or reply to this in advance! ! !
I hope that after a few days or hours I can put my order in for my new toy.

I got:

AMD 64 3500
Gforce 5600 256MB
1GB memory

I my self need a 19" and am looking for the best monitor in the $700 price range.

however im looking for a PRO type to use it for Design work mostly, gameing will come second.

From my understanding the faster 10, 8, 4ms monitors are not as presice at displaying colours as they are generaly 6 bit and not 8 bit.

now if your picky about how good the colurs are... you might not get the Fastest there is for you gaming.

whats your time frame like? need one now...?

First thank you very much for your reply.
Yeah I would like to get one now if possible but if I had to wait a month I would. I have a very good CTR 10 from gateway and I love it, but I'm just tired of it's big size and I just want to upgrade it.
I'm hoping and trying to make a smart buy not to regret the change from my nice CTR to a SH@#$%^ty LCD.

look @ this 1 I really liked it BUT where and how do I find the BIT thin you mention? like 8 or 6? I cannot find in the specs for this 1.
Do you think 8ms you good for any games? games like battlefield 2?
Should I upgrade my video card?

For playing games and watching movies and that ... you should be fine...

my only concern for you was for the design part. if colour accuacy is important to you... you might want to look into that a little further.

as for the 6bit to 8bit. take a look at this tread, read what Chuck_Hsiao has to say... somewhere half way donw.

Not trying to flame here but...
The lack of responses may be that folks here have been posting answers to this same question or related threads for a long time.
<A HREF="http://forumz.tomshardware.com/modules.php?name=Forums&..." target="_new">Search Boards</A> to the left.

Asking questions is fine but I would recommend making use of the very good search function THCG makes available as well as web searhing so you know if the question is a repeat.
May 27, 2005 10:04:39 PM

you know i never realy ever thing to use that function...
i tend to just google for it.

Yeah, I google before asking THGC and before asking THGC I Search Boards to see if the question has already been asked and answered. Sometimes it was asked months ago and technology has changed so a re ask is warrented.
May 28, 2005 2:30:25 AM

Yeah I do reasearch before asking and yes I think this is a standard I also googles before anything.
I searched and I noticed that peoples were "still" confused after various replies, so I decided to give it a try.
It worked, not here in this forum but look the post as I posted @ the G4 Forums. Look how helpful this guys were and how informative. Anyways I love Tom's Hardware and I don't feel bad that I got no replies I'm just Glad I was able to still get help somewhere else.
Like I said I think alot people will benefit from that thread.
