I saw a used HP Pavilion 2509m Monitor for sale for $120. It is about 1.5 years old. But not that used according to the owner. Is it a good offer? Is the monitor good for gaming?

NOTE: Dynamic Contrast Ratios up to 3000:1 during video playback only, depending on series of frames or time duration. Response time 3 ms Gray-to-Gray Pixel pitch 0.311 mm HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) Support for HDCP enables the monitor to display HDTV resolution if connected by the DVI connector. A monitor without HDCP support, or connected by analog VGA, causes the displayed video to be downgraded in quality to a DVD-like resolution that is less than HDTV.
HDCP is also a content protection system. HDCP prevents transmission of non-encrypted high definition content.
