Response time? Gaming


Ok well i been stuck in the stone age till just about 2 months ago. I used only crts.

Now my buddy gave me a old hand me down hp lcd 17" 8ms response time on it.

How big of a difference does response time make? For gaming?

Would i notice a huge difference with say a 2ms lcd? I'm debating on buying a new lcd screen for my computer and i'm just curious if i should or not?

I use to game on my 17" Samsung 712N, that had a 12ms response time, didn't notice any ghosting. But that's something you can easily judge yourself. Play a game. Do you see any ghosting? If no, then it's not an issue. If you do, then yes, a lower response time would help.
