Default New monitor plz

Hey guys im in the market for a new monitor and have trouble finding one i like. Basically i just bought a new rig

i5 2500k
570 gtx
8gig ram

the problem is that my monitor now is only 1680 x 1050 its a Samsung SyncMaster 226bw and I want to upgrade that.

-Im looking for something in the 24in range
-Basically just game on it
-not really interested in isp panels just seem too expensive so TN is fine
-want an HDMI port to connect my PS3 / might want speakers to go with the ps3 not really sure but i can live without for sure
-i do like decent lenght warranties as well
-Trying to keep the price down so around 200$ would be nice but am willing to go up to $300 if it ticks all the boxes.

I have looked at the asus ml248h but just not sure about it


Thanks for the help guys looking forward to your suggestions.

well currently dell is doing a day of deals so you might be able to score an ultrasharp (which are awesome monitors IMHO). The U2311 is a pretty awesome monitor (i used to have 3 until i upgraded ). Otherwise i would stick to either a sammy or a philips. We have had problems with lg monitors where i work.

Oh wow, you're right... They completely phased it out Looks like the U2312HM is the replacement. But the LED backlight... Hopefully they'll get the uniformity right
