Hi guys, I was just wondering if anyone could help me with a future (tommorow hopefully ;)  ) purchasing choice. I have £200 - 250 (pref 200 side of things) to spent on a gaming monitor, any suggestions. I sit 3/4 - 1 metre i guess from my screen.

Preferred screen size?
60 Hz or 120 Hz?
TN or IPS?

Best means a lot of different things to a lot of people.
For me, best is IPS, 21"-24", 1080p, thin bezel, VESA mounts, under 5ms response, etc.
For you it might be different.

What would say are the best 24" IPS monitors? Not looking to spend a fortune though.

The best 24" IPS monitors are probably Dells.

I would agree with cookieninja's recommendations though. They find a good balance between features, quality, and price.

If I'm looking for a good IPS monitor at 24", are the Dell UltraSharp U2410 or U2412M the best choices? Also how do you feel about 16:10 resolution for gaming? Looking around $400 max here.

The U2410 will probably give you the best quality image, but at 6ms response time it is a little on the slower end for gaming monitors. The U2412M is 8ms response, which for most is beyond the acceptable limits for gaming. I personally try to shoot for no higher than 5ms, but 6ms should be ok.

16:10 is great for gaming. I love the extra vertical pixels as it helps the image to not feel as ... squashed, I guess is the word I'm looking for. I tend to go for Eyefinity setups, so I sacrifice a bit in the individual monitor in order to get the full surround effect. Single monitor though, I'd go for the Dell.

The Dell should give you a better experience than the Acer or Asus will, but obviously at a higher price.
