I purchased the ViewSonic VX2370Smh for $150. I will mainly use it for gaming (Dota 2, Battlefield 3, Far cry3) and text reading (studying) I really want to reduce eye strain when reading text for a long period of time. Is this a good choice?
Thank you very much :)

If I were to buy one for gaming, then I'd get the Asus you listed. Two reasons, 5ms (GTG) is probably enough and that Asus is an IPS monitor not TN. Translation, better picture quality and improved viewing angles.

I can't comment on the ViewSonic model cuz a quick google search turned up no reviews. However, given the popularity of the Asus gaming models I'd recommend returning the ViewSonic and get that Asus model.

I have that exact same asus monitor. I agree with envy, its a very nice monitor. No ghosting or anything. I doubt this needs to be said but the viewing angles on it are loads better than my old TN. I use it for gaming/videos/reading/anything else and nothing wrong with mine at all.

One thing though, if/when you get it, turn the brightness down.

I have a Dell IPS and a Asus TN monitors. I love the Dell but I wanted speed so went Asus. If I were to buy one all around monitor that Asus VS239H-P would probably be the choice.
