You've probably already tried this, but in case you haven't, here's my out-of-date take on this.
I'm guessing that a gaming forum will yield critical information that might not be quite as common here. The only reason I mention this is that back when I was playing Unreal Tournament 99/2k4 (the top first person shooters of the day) the forums of the gaming clans had tons of information about the peculiarities of every single LCD model.
True, back then, things weren't anywhere near what they are now even for monitors, (video tear was horrrrrrible for example without paying uber-$$), but the gaming folks are severely critical. We had to be: given the hours of unblinking terror in our eyes it's easy to utterly hate the slightest thing wrong. Remember, when you're watching a TV you're relaxed. When you are playing a game you are hyper alert and need all your senses on hyper-drive.
ALL that hooey adide, the thing I'd point out is this...from the deeply immersed gaming crowd that I'm still in touch with it still seems that if what you want is a gaming display, then get a computer monitor. The differences are quickly vanishing but according to them, still pronounced.
