I have been looking for a good monitor to use in my triple monitor setup.
I need to purchase 3 of these so they can't be expensive!

I found this, which is my best choice so far but it's too expensive!
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00B2HH7G0?qid=1383565259...

I really can't find any good ones that are in my price range eight the specs I want. Is it worth getting 120/144hz? I don't want to deal with the ugly 60hz any more after using a 144hz for a few days I really notice a difference.

My requirements for the monitor
$200 (NO MORE THAN 210)
~5MS response time
120/144hz
1080p or higher
24" or larger (23.8 is basically 24 inch)

Thanks for looking or offering advice, but I doubt there are any monitors of this quality for sale so cheap.
I may have to go to a Korean seller...

Unfortunately when you hit that high level of refresh rate , then the price does ramp up , I was going to recommend the ASUS on as I have seen it go on sale but only down to $240

I'm about to make my first purchase on one of these...

They're overclockable to 96-120Hz usually.

I'd recommend trying your luck with a monitor with a single DVI-D port and try overclocking it yourself. :)

That is a VERY good budget monitor. And again, you should try and Overclock it! I got my BenQ sitting at 75Hz through VGA. I'd imagine if you used a Dual link cord, you'd be able to get a better refresh rate out of it. :) 

And for VESA, I think you have to do something along the lines of removing the stand and the back plate? Not sure, every monitor is different.

Yeah the debezel is going to be a pain because of vesa.
Maybe I can build a custom mount? I am already building a custom desk.
