Few question about two Asus monitors on size and refresh rates.

I noticed that when I navigate through Newegg.com monitor page. I have been looking at Asus monitors such as the VS239H-P and VS248H-P monitors.
When I go to the detail page of these monitors to check out the refresh rate, it gives me a horizontal and vertical refresh rate spec rather than a 60Hz or 120Hz answer.

I want a monitor with 60Hz refresh rate or higher, nothing lower than 60Hz. Also which of these monitor do you think is recommended? I plan on getting two of either one and mounting them via VESA mount for a workstation/gaming desktop. I will be doing tons of digital graphic design. I will only be using one monitor for gaming (the primary monitor), I don't want to play my games with dual monitors. The duel monitor is exclusively for multi-tasking with my design stuff and work, etc. This will put a lot of ease on my graphic card when I am gaming and I hate the black border in between if I were to play at a dual-monitor resolution. I am fine with 1080p single monitor for gaming. I just want to make sure that setup is possible. Also I plan on using DVI cables, if that even matters...

SO basically, the two questions I have is:

1. What are the refresh rate for these monitors? 60Hz? 75Hz?

2. Is 23" that different than the 24" as far as size and quality? Which should I get for both gaming and professional work?

might not be right, but the horizontal refresh rate is the refresh rate.

I'm not sure either, it says kHz....I do not know what that means.

1. You can basically assume unless said otherwise that a monitors refresh rate is 60hz. Thats what you will be limited too by Vsync in games anyway unless your willing to run into screen tearing..

2. Big difference between the two. The 23" is an IPS panel, while the 24" is a TN panel. IPS have far better colour reproduction than TN, but at the cost of a slower response time. However the difference between 2ms and 5ms isnt going to be apparent unless your extremely sensitive to it, I recommend you go for the 23".

Have a read through the monitor guide linked in my sig.

Thanks, is there a way to figure out the actual refresh rate of these two monitors? Do you know the answer already? I calculated the refresh rate of the horizontal by the horizontal screen resolution then multiply by 0.95.
So I took 83,000 / 1080 x 0.95 = 73.006 = 73Hz refresh rate.
I can safely assume that it will be 60Hz but also maybe can do 70 to 75Hz as well. I just want a double confirmation on that.
I agree on getting the 23" instead as it is actually only .67" smaller. It has a much higher quality color view (via IPS panel). The response time is 5ms instead of 2ms like the 24" one. I think most people even picky people won't easily or at all see the difference. In fact, I have a evil iMac (27" late 2009 & hate apple so much now) and it has a response time of 16ms, and I have been doing gaming on it with intense lag and some running at 60 fps on a 59Hz refresh rate and still get a stutter every minute or so. So either way, it is a huge upgrade for me and my gaming/design hobby. Also not to mention, I am getting two of these so I am getting a lot of pixels...

On paper the monitor can do 73Hz, but what your monitor will actually perform too will come down to what you receive in the box.
If you want to take full advantage of the extra 15hz, you might have to tweak some game files to set V-sync to a max of 75Hz rather than the standard 60hz.
