So I'm in need of some help from this great community on choosing a great TV for Gaming, so here's the rundown;
~Budget: 2,000$
~Viewing Distance: acceptable for 40"
~TV size/placement limitations: Again acceptable for 40"
~Uses: Mostly Gaming (FPS, Fighter games, 60 fps games in general) and watching some Blu-ray movies.
~Sources: Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii

So yeah i need some help on this, obviously motion blur is bad for gaming, so a tv having 120Hz should help, though i read somewhere that it produces more input lag, is that true?
Preferably an LCD or LED-LCD, plasmas are to big to fit sadly.
Also a friend of mine recommended the Samsung UN40B7000 that TV any good for gaming?

Thanks in advance guys.

If you can fit a 50 inch, please, by all means go for the Samsung 8000 series plasma.

You are in the US? With a $2000 budget, why not go cream of the crop in black levels? Pickup the 55LX9500. Great gaming response time.

Yeah plasma was my first choice but the space i'm working with only allows me for a 40" and since i have yet to find a 40" plasma, unfortunately i don't they make 40" plasmas.
What about the Samsung UN40B7000 a friend told me it is great for gaming, not sure what you guys think about this one.
