    Hello And Welcome, Personly i love the Samsung LCD's here's a link from newegg so you can find one to fit your needs\price range.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...bcategory=20&Manufactory=1077&Tpk=samsung+LCD

    I love mine and the Widescreen is good too. Other thing to keep in mind is res and what your video card can handle. All though even with mine default res 1600x1200 games still look good at 1200x1024 still.

    It's been sweet for games. I'm a very Avid games fast and slow paced.

    samsung is a great brand so i think thats a great choice but personally i wouldnt get anything but 1000:1 contrast because the picture is just better. that being said anything over 1000:1 is usually giving up quality in other areas so it can have over 1000:1 contrast.

    my advice is 5ms response time and 1000:1 contrast is what too look for
