Hi guys. I'm building a new gaming computer and I'm looking for a good monitor. I'm looking for: 800,000,000:1 contrast ratio 1x HDMI input 1x DVI input 350cd/m2 Multi-touch 22"-24" 1ms response time Under £350. If anyone know's of a screen like this please post; I will be very grateful.

"I'm looking for: 800,000,000:1 contrast ratio"

I think what you are talking about is dynamic contrast ratio (DCR), contrast enhancement by dynamically adjusting the screen's backlight. You should bear in mind the manufacturer's quoted DCR figures are always very inflated and not to be taken literally.

In this review of my monitor, the static contrast ratio is tested at around 3000:1, depending on settings. Benq claim a DCR of 20,000,000:1 whilst TFT Central tested it at around 16,000:1, which is a very good result as compared to other LCD monitors.
