I am planning to build a gaming and I finnaly know exactly what i want to get except for the monitor. I plan to be doing gaming at 1080p and i'm can't decide between these three monitors.

My budget i tight and the max i'm prepared to spend on a monitor is around £130. I can't really decide which is the best although i'm a little more drawn to the twoo 24 inch monitors. I don't want a monitor that may have ghsting problem and i don't want a glossy screen. Which monitor do you think i should go for ? And if you have any other suggestions for monitors that great . Any sort of response would be much appreciated, Thanks.

If you could push a bit more and find yourself a 120hz monitor I would really recommend them. TN panels are probably the best for response time whereas i think that ips panels have better color just a bit more lag though. Honestly though out of the three you chose i'd probably choose the benq as you get a bit larger monitor and at that price point i doubt you will see much difference between the three. Myself personally i have always preferred samsung and asus monitors but then you would be lose a couple inches of real estate.

The IPS ones are at 5ms, so pretty fast response time

120hz really depends if his gpu can push that frame rate

Thats true I never had any issues with my samsung t240 and still don't at 5ms but I don't think any of the monitors he choose out are gonna ghost. As for the glossy screen I have no clue which of those would have that. I find the 120hz monitors seem to be quite a bit brighter than regular monitors for me so even if they were glossy it might counteract some of the glossyness (is that even a word not sure :) ). I am assuming he must have his computer setup in a very bright area so he doesn't want it to reflect.

bit more research shows the 21.5" is actually has 14ms response so no go on that (mis labelled on pcpartpicker)

The 23" one is actually bezeless and anti=glare and still 5ms
