Default buying a new monitor, need help

Hey guys

Finally i decided to utilize my paycheck and move away from CRT's to LCD's

I've decided on a 1680x1050 as my native res, since im a single GPU person.
Since theres a few '20 screens with 1680x1050,and they have a better pixel pitch, ive decided to skip '22 all together.

Also 2ms is a must unless someone knowledgeable can tell me quality in games between 2ms and 5ms is unnoticeable.

so far i have these on my list based on whats available in my country and their prices.

LG L206WTQ= $312
http://www.lge.com/products/model/detail/l206wtq.jhtml

LG L207WT= $312
http://www.lge.com/products/model/detail/l207wt.jhtml

SAMSUNG SM 2032BW= $260
http://www.samsung.com/uk/business/b...ps/sm932gw.htm

SAMSUNG SM 2053BW= $260
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SyncMa.../ref=de_a_smtd

So if anyone who knows how to read specs well, please let me know which of these 3 would be the best gaming wise, or should i consider 5ms monitors with similar specs?

Thanks

I'd go for something glossy like the HP W2007 + a better stand.

You won't be able to tell the difference between any two monitors under 8ms unless you're a fighter pilot by profession.

I disagree. I have both a 5ms and a 2ms panel and you can see a big difference when moving the mouse back and forth quickly in 1st person shooters.

I am not sure why you need to rule out 22" monitors? The 20" does have a better pixel pitch. But that is because it is smaller. Be aware that 20" widescreen is a lot shorter vertically than an 19" CRT. You better sit in front of one and be sure you are happy with the size of it. To me they are a little too small.

what ever you decide make sure you go find a store that carries the model you want and take a good look at it in person
