Default A 300$ 1920 x 1200 display for gaming, watching movies etc (G2400WD vs V2400W).

So i'm looking for a monitor. Right now i have a 19" SyncMaster 931bf and i'm quite happy with it - but i want bigger.

* I play a lot of games on my PC.
* I have my 360 hooked up to my current with VGA. So i also play my 360.
* I would like to hook up my Ps3 in the future, hopefully by HDMI (as you can see i do play a lot of games)
* I also watch movies from my PC.
* I do use stuff like Photoshop, but not for my work or anything.
* I have seen that one of the most popular resolutions is 1920 x 1200 so i think that would be the best?

I have about 4000 eek (it's like 400$, but since stuff costs more here i'm saying something around 300$). If really needed it could but a little bit more money into it.

The first thing i noticed was T240. It goes for 4200 eek. Then i noticed T240HD which is only 4400 eek - it would be cool to but my tv behind it. But then again i don't really watch tv that much so i guess it's not a big problem. The worst thing is that i went on this site: DigitalVersus and there wasn't 931bf, but i put in 931bw and it has better quality than T240HD. I don't want my new monitor to look worse that my current one - i want it to look even better...

The thing i have my eye on so far is BenQ 24" LCD G2400WD for 3600 eek. It is cheaper, but actually seems better.

There's also BenQ 24" LCD V2400W for 4200 eek.

So what do you guys think - right now G2400WD and V2400W are my top choices - but i don't know which one to choose. Could i do better than that those? Should i get more money?

Btw: If you noticed i'm not from US or anything so not everything is available.

Acer P244 would be a lot better IMHO. Has VGA and 2xHDMI and can do 1080P perfectly.

I think 1920 x 1200 resolution would be better? That one seems like the most popular these days..
