24-25 Inch monitor for gaming

Hello

I am building a new PC for BF4 Ultra 1080p and therefore i need a new monitor for all the new shiny stuff to get the max out of it, i don't really know much about what defines a good monitor, but the monitor i have in mind is

24" or 25"
Full HD
Headphone plug (not a must, but would be nice as i use my headphones alot)

estimated budget: 350-400$ max

was thinking of this one, but it doesn't seem to have a headphone plug

    BenQ XL2420TE or XL2420T(I think this is perfect for you and in your price range) depending on how much your willing to spend
    If you were on more of a budget and you didnt care about the 144Hz refresh rate compared to the 60Hz then there are also the BenQ RL2450HT or RL2450H
  2. Remember make sure you use a HDMI or Displayport cable to be able to use that headphone port. If you were to use a DVI-D cable you would not get audio althougn me personally i find it is better quality to hook my headphones directly to my motherboard or front I/O rather then routing it through a monitor/keyboard

    XL2420TE looks pretty nice, well anything above 60Hz is better haha my monitor is like 7 years old so it's only 60Hz

    Yea i have another headphones plugged into the front of my PC, i have a pair only for gaming, and a pair for everything else when i don't play, music etc., but i don't quiet understand what you mean, how can a HDMI or displayport have anything to do with headphones?

    If you connect the monitor with a DVI cable the headphone jack on the monitor will not work.. This is what i mean by use HDMI or Displayport if you want the functionality of the headphone jack. Me personally I dont mind.

    My current monitor still use VGA and the headphone plug works fine, is it only a problem if using DVI?

    You still use VGA? Ouch...
    Umm well VGA and DVI only transmit video not audio so i definitely recommend using a HDMI cable to get the headphone jack functionality

    First ask yourself this. Do you want any audio to be transmitted to your monitor for the purpose of a headphone jack or built in speakers?

    If yes, please connect with a HDMI cable or Displayport cable from the GPU to the Monitor

    If no, please connect with a DVI-D or HDMI or Displayport cable from the GPU to the Monitor
