Good gaming monitor?

Back info...skip to paragraph 3 for the main part of the topic:

Ive been using an hdtv(an off brand even) for a few months now. Its nattive was like 1440x900 or something. The colors and stuff are washed out and blurry on a lot of games.

Anyways I was using the TV as a substitute screen because the other monitor was only 1200x1000~ and it so happens my sister was home from school.and didnt have anywhere to put it, so I used it. But now she is leaving for school and taking the tv with her.


So now I need a new monitor to utilize the higher end gpu in my computer and was wondering whats a good monitor? I had this one in mind because its asus and im a fan of them:

ps:I cant fit a screen over 24 inches due to the computer desk limits.

Thanks for your contribution. It has been noted and will be considered when it meets the criteria.


Which it never will, seeing how telling me a size isnt telling me which monitor specifically.

Well, if budget isn't an issue you could go with this one:

That is the one I just got. The one shipping from Amazon is right at $250, and free shipping with prime of course. At the 24 inch mark, and also the only monitor I know of at the 144Hz refresh rate, it is very nice.

I have the 22 inch version of that monitor. It's pretty good.
