If you get dynamic backlighting it will help. Just plain LED backlighting willl not help. You are going to want some local dimming options to get the darkest blacks.

What you are talking about is backlight bleeding. The amount of bleeding depends upon the model. You're going to have to do research/see it in person.

LED backlighting is going to make it worse since most models are edge-lit. Edge-lit LED makes backlighting more uneven. The good LED backlighting are on HDTV's and only on the most expensive models.

Picture quality wise: real LED > CCFL > edge-lit LED

No, LEDs will not make a difference. Actually, many high quality displays (like mine) use CCFL still, as it is more uniform.

I have a Dell Ultrasharp, and it's blacks are much better than my laptop and older monitor, but they still aren't as good as any CRT. I would recommend any ultrasharp if you want high quality colors. Many consumer oriented panels have rather bad colors.

Philhalo66, you'll want a monitor with a very low black level and a very high contrast ratio, in other words, a monitor that uses a *VA panel - the type of backlighting has nothing to do with it.

However the vast majority (if not all) VA panels are quite slow and not particularly suited for gaming, although the level of ghosting does differ, particularly across different colour changes (i.e. white on black is particularly bad). It also depends on how sensitive you are to the ghost trailing. Playing GTA4 on a VA panel might be OK since it's not quite as fast paced as a FPS.

Anyway, have a look at the BenQ VA line of monitors like the EW2420 or BL2400PT / BL2400PU - although be wary that there's a lot of quality control problems with them currently so be prepared (or at least expect to) send the monitor back a few times until you receive one that's defect free.

Other *VA monitors to consider, the Samsung F2380mx (if you can find one) or if you've got deep pockets, the Eizo FS2331.
