    Well I'm wondering what one needs to look for in a LCD in regards to playing games?

    The games are generally first person shooters

    1600x1200 resolution
    16ms refresh (faster displays usually over-drive the transistors and thus reproduce less colours)
    Full 8 bit colour reproduction

    As and example: Dell 2001FP
