Does anyone have any recommendations for a 17" LCD that has DVI and handle
FPS games and the odd session of programming. I guess I can keep my CRT
for colour work..

The BENQ FP737S-D, Philips 170B5CS, Viewsonic VG712 look likely.

Does it have 16ms or better..


Also AOC , CMV & Acer


Look for a Zero dead pixel policy and a 3 year warrantee

The thing I have found with some acers, is that they do tend to have bad
light seepage around the edges of the LCD, which is very visible when
viewing a black screen.

Yep - it probably has to be at least 16 ms (or here abouts).

I agree - a good warranty is needed. The odd dead pixel won't annoy me too
much.
