How is the ASUS VG248QE Monitor?

That one^

It looks like a relatively good monitor for what I need, for a more or less reasonable pricepoint. What I'm looking for in a monitor is mainly refresh rate, and for it to have a low response time. Preferably, the resolution at 1080p.

Anything else that might be cheaper that would fit my needs?

Its amazing.

Lightboost low persistence "hack" gives the lowest amount of motion blur i've ever seen.
I can live with the horrid contrast, and washed out colours for this INSANELY smooth motion.

Bump I'd like a few more responses before I drop almost 300 dollars.

I've done exactly what this user has and it's SO DAMN GOOD. The smoothness is insane.
The colours and contrast are not even that bad.

I've tried plenty of monitors and always come back to this one. It's amazing.
Also is 3D ready should you get the kit and that's your kinda thing.

The low persistence strobing (Lightboost, and the new version that comes with gsync) are not compatible with the variable refresh of Gsync, but at 120hz with insanely smooth motion i dont even see tearing or stutter.

Gsync is aimed at low fps scenarios, and the Low Persistance Strobing is what you want if you can maintain 120fps @ 120hz.

gsync also comes with ultra low motion blur mode. which is better than lightboost. but like light boost you have to choose either gsync or ULMB mode

Which is my point.
If i had a Gsync monitor i would be using ULMB over Gsync 99/100, and lightboost can provide almost the same as ULMB now,
