Default Help Required: Your input on gaming monitors/displays

With the master chief collection coming out in a little over 2 months I am going to prepare myself and step my game up a bit in terms of setup. I would like to gather this forum's thoughts on what are some of the best gaming monitors/TV's/displays around. My budget can be anywhere from $200-$500 (altho I'd ideally like to keep it around the 2-3 mark).

On a side note, I know some of the biggest things to consider when choosing a gaming monitor is the input lag and response time.. Can someone elaborate a little on anything else I should not overlook?

Also, one last question, I have never been able to game on HDMI with my current TV because the aiming had such a huge discrepancy between shooting on VGA (1080p) and HDMI (1080p), I'm guessing because of the input lag associated with my TV? I have a HD PVR2 and I would like to be able to stream in HDMI but I don't want to compromise my aiming abilities, can someone shed light on this?

Thank guys.

Which video input do you play on? VGA/HDMI?

Response time doesn't mean much. Input delay is the determining factor as to how responsive the display is going to be.
