I'm going with an all Asus build and can't decide between these two monitors. I'm mainly a gamer so I'm going for these two because of their high refresh rates. Which one of these two would be best. Can you please list the pro's and cons between the two in terms of color depth, type of panel, etc... Here are the two I can't decide between:

Asus VG278HE

Asus VG248QE

Thx :}

248QE: More depth, greater lighting ability.
278HE: Slightly more vibrant, slightly sharper image.
I don't think I need to mention how one of them is $100 less than the other. The screen size and price range are subjective and depend on the context in which you are buying them, so I'll let you decided that for yourself.

I know the VG278HE is about 100 dollars more but in games which one would look and perform better I mainly play first person shooters and RTS games. So in the context that I'm mainly using the monitor for long intervals at mainly gaming in those two genres which one of the two would look best.

Or let me put it this way based on what I would be using it for which I just mentioned the two main genres of gaming I'd be using it for and if price wasn't an issue which one of the two if you were me would you pick and why?

I would go with the 278HE, hands down. Contrast ratio(beyond 1000000:1) is almost nothing to care about while brightness is a similar deal. You'll get a generally better image from the 278HE.
