This wouldn't matter for gaming, but your desktop may cause image retention. This is not the same thing as burn is as eventually the image will fade from the picture.
^^^^^ This. All of it.

FYI I used "burn" as a generic term for the lasting impression made by a still image. Ex. say I hit pause to grab some food from the microwave real quick (3 mins tops) and I un-pause and feel like I just took a bong hit ;)
