Question 24 vs 21 monitor 1920x1080

What`s better for gaming at 1920x1080, 21inch or 24inch?

I mean in terms of pixel density and price.

If it helps i have around $180 for a monitor, and scouted out a few, but is it better to get a higher quality smaller monitor or a bigger one.

Thanks

W2442PA-BF. One of the best TN's available at the moment. The custom color preset offers near perfect color accuracy, best motion handling outside of 120hz, insanely low input-lag, great matte screen coating and matte finish, ergonomic adjustments, and unit-to-unit backlight bleed is minimal. I'd also suggest going with Amazon.ca for their free shipping and no hassle returns and exchanges just in case. You'll have to stretch your budget by $20, if you can, but the price is definitely worth it.

I have 3 of these in EF. They are wonderful monitors. No complaints whatsoever.
