Default New monitor, idea's?

So my old Samsung Syncmaster has decided to go to the display heaven in the sky (won't make a connection anymore), and I'm back to a single monitor display, and might I add, it's making me want to murder something. My main monitor is a Dell S2309W which has been serving me faithfully and am looking for another 23-24'' screen but not really sure what to get.

For the most part I'm looking for a good screen for gaming/movies, and before you start mentioning something like the Dell U2410, being at $500 on sale it's a bit out of my range (though the geek in my wants to play with an IPS), I'm trying to keep the price around $200, $250 tops most likely, while I do have more, my PC is begging me ever so nicely for some new audio supplies.

OH GREAT DISPLAY GURU'S, LATHER ME WITH YOUR KNOWLEDGE!

Despite you noting $250 as your top range, just thought I would mention you could get a u2311h for $300 since you brought up its bigger brother. ;)

If you can wait, hold out for a Dell sale and grab yourself something nice. 2209WA's can be had for a fantastic price and the 23" and up ultrasharp's can be had for a great deal when they're on sale. You'll be happy spending a few extra bucks now down the road.

Not sure if this would be of interest but its a pretty nice price for what you get, may be worth a look.

I thought the 2290wa was discontinued. Nevertheless, it's an amazing monitor if you can find one used.
