So what I'm looking for is a fairly priced monitor for gaming. The total price of the parts I am going to order is already 1,500 dollars. So preferably I don't want to add much more to that price.

Depending on the GPU you have I would get myself a 1440p monitor, I love mine! Depending from where you go they are quite cheap :)

then 1080 is where you want to be...the ASUS VG248QE is a great gaming monitor. ~$280. It's a TN panel though, so colors won't be as crisp, but the response time <1ms and refresh rate of up to 144MHz...very smooth.

that's not a gaming monitor though. I guess it depends on if the OP want a monitor to game on or a true gaming monitor. ASUS and BenQ both have gaming monitors at both 24" and 27"...and all at or over 120MHz

it will be better than a regular dell or Acer monitor...but only in gaming. the color and picture quality will suffer to have faster refresh rates and lower response times.

WIll it still look "good" when not gaming. Because for that price I am really considering it.

If it looks "good" is really only relevant to what you have already seen or are accustomed to. Most people that have junk monitors thought my old Asus TN panel looked great. I did too until I saw IPS panels. It really is a trade off between speed and beautiful picture. I personally went with high refresh rate of TN when I bought my second monitor.

it will...I recently went to Fry's to play with and look at the BenQ and ASUS. they look fine, but IPS panels are incredible. google the difference between TN and IPS panels and you can see videos.
