I just got the ASUS VE247H 23.6" monitor and I like it. 2ms gray to gray response time and there's no ghosting that I can tell when I'm playing racing games. Also it has 3 inputs which is a very nice feature imo. I will tell you though the onboard speakers are really bad but it has a 3.5mm audio out so you can hook up audio out of the monitor to some speakers.

The Dell U2312HM when it goes on sale for $199 would be a great choice I think. Dell have sales very frequently so I would keep an eye out for it to go on sale again.

It's not gonna be as responsive as something like a 120hz monitor or even some tn monitors, but I know that with my monitor (Dell U2311H) I don't notice any type of ghosting and everything looks so good on it. I came straight from a crt monitor to this and it's a world of difference.

The OP is going to have to decide IF gaming is number one priority or not. In the the price range he is talking about....its going to be a 24 TN or a 23" IPS. 6bit -usually LG based - IPS is going to be the graphic design option.....the 23 Dell is a damn good choice. TN...well its TN and this good for gaming but less than great for design work. The u2312 has some ghosting just like its 24" brother so it aint perfect for gaming. I do however like it a LOT and consider it the better deal compared to the 24" model. Honestly, IF you want a good all rounder that can do gaming decently and do design work decently, it would be a good choice...BUT it will not provide the buttery smooth gaming experience a 2ms TN monitor can. Pick what you plan to USE it for, then chose TN or IPS...then chose the size. Lastly chose the brand as most use similar panels.
