Need help deciding between two monitors

I cant decide between these two monitors

it's a 25" i-inc monitor vs 23" acer monitor.

They are practically the same (<200 dollar price tag, HDMI, HD screen, 1920x1080, 16:9) except for the following:

the acer has a 40000:1 DYNAMIC contrast ratio (i know what that means but i dont know if its good or not)
the acer has a 5ms response time
acer is 10-20 bucks less

the i-inc has a 3000:1 contrast ratio
the i-inc has a 2ms response time
the i-inc is 199

my problem is that i read that the i-inc seems to have a weaker base, but i dont know how much weaker, i dont want it falling apart on me. i also have never heard of the i-inc company. also, i dont know if the huge dynamic contrast ratio translates above or below to the regular contrast ratio, but i know im not really supposed to look at it anyway.

what would you recommend? can you find something better on newegg/tigerdirect for <200 dollars?

im leaning towards the acer because i know 1920x1080 will look better on the slightly smaller screen.
(btw, i play video games and my video card is the hd 4770 which goes up to 2560 x 1600)
