Hey guys, I upgraded my system from a 965 to a 4670k, and my 6870 to a gtx 760. I was really happy about all this until I realized I forgot to upgrade my 1366x768 monitor :lol: . I am on a budget of $150, and am looking for about 23 inches minimum. I have a 20 dollar promotional code on amazon so I can go to 170 there. I am currently contemplating these three monitors:

ASUS VN247H-P 24 inch

ASUS VE248H 24 inch

Asus VS247H-P 23.6 inch

Which of these three looks best, and are there any better? The monitor will mostly be used for gaming. Thanks for the help.

The only significant difference I see is that the VE and VN models have speakers, but monitor speakers tend to be pathetic, so I wouldn't go by that. I suggest you just go with the cheaper VS247H, unless you find the housing of one of the others more appealing.

As far as alternatives, you might consider the BenQ GW2450 that uses an AMVA panel for high static contrast:

It seems to be on sale at NCIX US at the moment.

Never ordered from NCIX before, or had a BenQ monitor, what are your opinions? The monitor speakers are not something I care about at all; by the way.

I haven't had a BenQ monitor before either, but that model has a good review at TFT Central:
