Default Gaming monitor advice

Would love some advice on a gaming monitor. I had done some research and had settled on buying the Dell UltraSharp 2209WA, however, according to Dell the 2209WA has been discontinued. So now I am back to the drawing board so to speak. Also appears that I missed out on them being on sale a couple weeks ago for $199

Would love your advice on some other monitors that would be as good or better in the 22-24" range.

The Dell U2311H is a great alternative, and it's on sale today!

My System Specs

If you're primarily an FPS gamer, consider one of the 24" 120Hz monitors. I had the 2233rz for a bit from the first generation of 120Hz monitors and the difference was absolutely amazing. The only reason I sold it was because I had a hard time accepting the size difference of going from 24" to 22". The 24" 120Hz monitors weren't on the scene at the time.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

I was on a bit tighter budget than I realized so I decided on this Acer I found on a clearance deal. Lucky to have a Staples near me that still had one in stock. I think it should work ok for the price.
