  2. The Benq FP93GX 2ms Price: 479,72 USD
  3. Samsung Syncmaster 940BF 2ms Price: 512,17 USD
  4. Samsung SyncMaster 930BF 4ms Price: 463,87 USD
  5. Samsung SyncMaster 960BF 4ms Price: 500,60 USD

id would like to get some help so i buy the best monitor for its price.

Don't go with LCD's, go with a CRT. Some LCD's, when you leave an image too long on the screen, it will burn a ghost image (Permantly) on your screen.

Have you considered getting a ViewSonic VX922?

$400
19"
2ms
Contrast Ratio 650:1

Actually when comparing everything I think the VX922 is the best choice. Compared to all the otherones you listed it only lacks in a contrast ratio of 50, which is barely noticable unless you have an inhuman sense of sight, so you will not see a difference. Also it offers a larger viewing angle than most of the others, and it cost the least.

Also ViewSonic is probably the most reliable monitor manufacturer that I know of.. So i would highly consider getting that.

This is probably one of the best Gaming LCD's you can get.
