I do a lot of gaming AND video editing.


I also found this IPS monitor from ASUS. Amazon.com: ASUS VS239H-P 23-Inch Full-HD LED IPS Monitor: Computers & Accessories
Is this any good?

(-)Missing an HDMI cable,
(+) The 5ms lag hints that it's an LG E-IPS with overdrive, which I haven't seen on $180 monitor before.

This looks good to me.

Asus VG23AH!

IPS monitor for $220 ish with great viewing angles, speakers, LG's FPR 3d (gimmick IMHO), dual HDMI, single DVI and VGA. This is Canadian price, not sure where you are...

It also has a height adjustable stand, and with custom timings from an AMD or nVidia video card can do 72hz (confirmed).

Why bother with this other stuff when you can get high quality for an inexpensive price?

If I was in your situation this is 100% the monitor I'd go with, no holds barred.

Even if you are sitting right in front of it, a TN monitor at 24" will still have darker top and brighter bottom characteristics. It's not horrible, and generally not a problem during gaming, but with solid blocks of color, like a colored background on text, you'll possibly notice it, regardless of where you sit.

My only recommendation of TN screens is if you absolutely need 120hz as they are currently the only ones that are sold with that feature.

Here's a link:

Or look second hand. The 32" dell IPS panels can be found pretty cheaply though the same is probably true for other brands too (been looking at Dell prices as I may be selling my U2311h, I'm in Europe not the Americas)

This looks good, but a LOT of reviews complain about grey lines running across the monitor. I might just save up for this :(
Amazon.com: Asus PA238Q 23-Inch Professional Super-IPS Full-HD LED Monitor: Electronics

EDIT: How about this guys? :D Seems to me like a great monitor!Amazon.com: Dell UltraSharp U2312HM 23" IPS LED LCD Monitor - 16:9 - 8 ms: Electronics
but it has an 8ms response time. is that bad?

The Dell is good too.

The PA238Q has some quality issues in terms of back-light bleeding, but otherwise is a solid screen.

I haven't seen anything about grey lines with the VG23AH on other forums with some pretty anal retentive users.

16:9...... I personally wouldn't buy a monitor larger than 22" which didn't do at least 1920 X 1200.

The PA238Q has been replaced by PB238Q. Customer feedback on Newegg suggests the backlight bleeding on the new model has been fixed. It's a bit over your budget but still hitting a sweet spot in terms of value.

Standard 120 Hz LCD's only have 50% less motion blur than standard 60 Hz LCD's. However, LightBoost 120 Hz (with the LightBoost force-enabled for 2D) were recently measured to have 85%-92% less motion blur than a 60 Hz LCD. That's an order of magnitude better than a 60 Hz LCD in motion blur! So if you want the sharpest possible motion during fast-action gaming FPS and maximum competitive advantage (some competition teams now use LightBoost for the faster reaction time; e.g. Team Exile 5 -- they have a rave review on their website).

There are ASUS VG248QE's on sale for only $300, which is one of the best computer monitors for fast action videogaming, if you can afford it. It's a 120 Hz panel with 1ms and also LightBoost; many reviewers such as pcmonitors.info has given it a good score if used for video gaming purposes.

However, if you want movies/tv/video/photos/office, an IPS display will be better.
