Looking for a cheap (>$120) 1080p Monitor for Gaming

I'm working on my first build right now, and am trying to decide on which monitor to buy.

I have a AMD 7870 w/ 2GB of VRAM. I'd like a monitor that's at least 21.5" (though preferably 23") that isn't complete garbage for around (or less than) $120. Can it be done?

As for monitor features, I will really only be using this at a desk straight on, so viewing angles shouldn't matter that much (?). However, I'd like it to be able to tilt... Also, 1080p is kind of a must.

I've been looking at this ASUS 22" monitor, and this AOC 23" monitor. But, I'm not sure if they're any good...

Thanks for any suggestions you guys can give me! I appreciate it a ton.

What ever you chose make sure it is an IPS monotor and not TN ..

for low price most IPS are close to each other ... Pick Asus

you dont have alot of choices at that budget ,

pick

Asus VS229H-P

$134

thats the closest to your budget and IPS , but what ever IPS is allways better than TN , never get TN

Edit : if you want 23 inch , you can pick this one for 150$

led/lcd has three options for choosing a display panel. The display panel can be tn, va or ips. So, it means , led makes a hell lots of difference, if its an ips panel.
