AND if you are lucky and get a decent non TN panel, you'll get bigger color gamuts, 8bit, but at the cost of 5x to 8x higher latency.........this is one reason I cannot stand LCD, I have yet to see a decent one for games - considering a lot of newer games use HDR and other effects, that are not possible with LCD....so I am not sold on LCD, and the 2 models of Dell or Acer recommended are absolute crap I've seen them on display at a local store - LCD companies are dishonest and misleading with their BIg dynamic contrast ratings, it is poorly implamented - I myself am looking for a decent LCD for gaming, and yet to find one that offers no ghosting while offering the full color gamut and not some visible banding on color gradations......guess I am asking too much for LCD, but I am shocked that in 2009 LCDs have not improved that much....I can't wait for OLED :)

LOL ya we know. We are talking about a $200 screen.
