    I need to finally upgrade my display (from a 17" CRT). I can't remember the exact video card I have but I think it's a GeForce 6800XT (it has VGA and HDI outputs). It will be used for some gaming (nothing hardcore) and watching DVDs.

    £300 is my very highest price, I preferably want it to be less.

    It also needs to be able to fit to a desk mount like this one, for example.

    I was looking at something like this one

    But I'll be honest, I don't really know what I'm looking for. It says it has a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Is that good, bad or indifferent? This did not really help.

    Contrast ratios are the same as unicorns.

    Although honestly, I'd advice you to get at least a PVA or IPS screen.

    If you can live with 1680x1050 then the Dell 2209WA is for you (good price at OcUK). If you crave a higher resolution then have a look at the Samsung F2380 (23"@ 1920x1080). Otherwise, wait for LGs Wxx20 series coming in July.

    The Samsung comes with a PVA panel, the Dell and the LGs come with IPS panels.
