Is this a monitor any good?

I'm trying to find a new monitor, and I don't really want to spend more then $300 on one. I'm current;y using a 24" HD TV as a monitor
-this- http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2347506

And I was thinking of getting this one. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=8128190&sku=B145-2408

Is that monitor any good, or is there a better one for either the same price or close to the same price? Also will I even see a difference between what I have now and that monitor?

You can try for a 1440 monitor with those specs.

There really wouldn't be much point in upgrading to that particular monitor. Either buy one of those cheap Korean 1440p Qnix monitors, or get that one 144Hz ASUS monitor.

Like this http://www.amazon.com/VG248QE-24-Inch-Screen-LED-lit-Monitor/dp/B00B2HH7G0

Also is this a good 1440P monitor? http://www.amazon.com/PB278Q-27-Inch-LED-lit-Professional-Graphics/dp/B009C3M7H0

It seems really expensive, so I don't know. Is there a noticeable difference between 1080p and 1440p?

There is basically a 1.6 Million pixel difference between the two resolutions. With higher resolutions, texture quality and pixel density in terms of colors is much more apparent.

A fan is confident in the game they prefer being able to stand on its own merits.
A fanatic attacks the opposing game showing insecurity in the game they like.

Yes, you get an increase of 78% more pixels. However, bear in mind that it's almost the same as running two 1080p monitors, and is almost demanding twice as much from your GPU to do it.

I have the PB278Q and love it.
