Hello! I have been looking for a gaming monitor for this set up for a while now: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/prolip/saved/1YjH
There are a lot of nice Asus and Benq ones but I'm still undecided. I have been thinking about these 2;

http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-GL2450HM-Widescreen-Multim...

These are just two that have cought my eye, I'm not sure if they're the best for my budget though. 120Hz would be nice but I don't think I can afford it and still get good response time and contrast etc. Could you please suggest some nice monitors for gaming within the £200 budget? I'm buying in the UK.

Both of those monitor's a great options - but I would personally prefer an IPS panel instead, due to the brighter colours and wider viewing angles. This is a great option and is a great price, too: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-24EA53VQ-inch-Widescreen-Mon...
Has a 5ms response time, but the difference between 2ms and 5ms is so small that you won't notice it. :)

Hmm I have to say the LG does look like a very good option. And while we are on the subject, what is the difference between IPS and non-IPS monitors?

Couldn't find many good comparison pictures, but this is a good one: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8217/8282069521_85330060b...

Pretty much with an IPS panel you get richer colours and a wider viewing angle whilst sacrificing the low response times on a TN panel, but as I said, you won't notice it. :)
