SpookedJunglist there isnt really a refresh rate just pixel adjust rate....
each pixel has its own transistor and could actively change all pixels instantly..
therefore if the pixels could switch as fast as those transisters then it would be as fast as the video card could send it....
but the LCD pixels have one fallback..
they take time to switch from one color to the next
so thats where the 16ms white to black fade time comes into play...
on slower fading LCDs the video can apear to ghost so in games it looks like trails or a bad LSD trip i dunno never tried it before....
if you have a frys near by i think they have the samsung syncmaster 712n for $350 on sale has a 12ms (refresh)

Lothos I am curious why refresh rate doesn't matter on an lcd.

Xavier1421 If I could have it my way, I'd take the biggest LCD I can find for gaming...with the lowest response time, and a high contrast ratio.

Now, for working, two 17's would ROCK.

I hear DVI on an LCD is something to behold, it really helps the LCDs.

Lothos How about DVI vs Analog RGB? I can see DVI input hikes the price a good $20-40 alone. Also, thoughts baout dual 17's vs a single 19" or bigger? I'm a gamer on the big machine, so not much else to worry about.

Xavier1421 I always search for the manufacturers web page with specifications on it. Whatever the manuf. says, I believe...and I return it if otherwise.

Lothos How do you know if the response time claimed is legit? I see some list 25 ( 10 +15 ) and the like. I would prefer a .26 dpi or better as well, but that's pricey.

yeah but that doesn't include online stores, usually talking abt circuit city and compusa, ect. and those are comparably priced. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...133-147&depa=1 has a 12 ms for a couple hundred cheaper

I can't seem to find anything wrong with the ones here. Maybe X can but i can't. They also cost like 120 less.

link not working, yeah i have also been searching around, LG and Acer are pretty fairly priced name brand LCD's .The way i have been looking at it, coz as X said u don't wanna hurt your wallet. for a decent 17" you should pay around $300 for a 19" around $400 then the prices for anything bigger is just LOL. if u find anything nice post, maybe i can steal some ideas from you, so far i have in mind 17" Acer AL1714CB that has a 14ms response time, 19" AL1912b
16ms, 19" BenQ FP931 this has DVI and 16ms, LG1710SK 16ms. all these i found at www.newegg.com. call me foolish, but i when i buy things from them, i like to buy items with lots of reviews, and if you see a recurring problem then stay away. goodluck
