I currently have a cheapo Wal-Mart grade LCD Acer monitor with a 5ms response rate. I wouldnt even consider getting a new one, however, the ghosting is dreadful. I would like to find a good monitor, with little to no ghosting. I have found a couple on newegg that look decent... My main concern is gaming.

LCD -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236049

LED -- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236112

These are the two monitors that I am currently looking at. Id like to know if either of these would be a good gaming monitor, and I would also like other suggestions.

I would like the LED, however, some reviewers report ghosting issues.
The only thing keeping me from hitting the "buy" on the first option is that it does not have an LED backlight...
Which brings me to my next question... is there a real difference between the LED and LCD monitors?

Thanks,
--Neil

The video card on the system matters more for gaming than the monitor, which really doesnt have much to do with it

Please post system specs.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Agreed!
I want one of them!

If you really want a good monitor get a Sony.
They are not cheap, but I found one on sale a few years ago for about that price to replace my old 19 inch Sony CRT that lasted almost twenty years.

I think they are the best and if they last it is worth the money.

Whats the budget?

My budget is, unfortunately, 200-300 dollars. I know i shouldnt expect much in that price range, but I think there are some decent monitors out there in that price for gaming Im just not sure which one to choose... decisions decisions.
