Hello, I'm looking for some help finding a gaming monitor. I want at least 120hz refresh rate and at least pretty good colors. I've looked at two so far but both seeming to have big issues.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... washed out colors is what I see most for this one.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... really bad backlight bleed is the most common complaint I see for this one.

I've looked at some Benq's as well but most are more then I want to spend. Which I would like not spend over $375. I'm hoping you guys know of some other really good gaming monitors :)  thank you.

Is getting a 1440p korean monitor an option for you? I have a Qnix QX2710 that was around $350, uses an PLS panel (so really good colours) and overclocks to 110Hz easy. However it doesn't come with very consumer friendly warranty, only has Dual DVI input and has a relatively high response time of 8ms (though I cannot tell that it is there). But the advantages of 1440p, PLS and 110Hz heavily outweigh the cons.

I've looked at some and thought about it. Only thing is can I multi monitor it? cause I'm wanting to be able to use my current monitor as a second monitor for searching web or keeping track of twitch chat things like that while using my main monitor to play.

I am sure that you can do multi monitor setups with different resolutions, just make sure that the 1440p panel is connected to a dual link DVI port and then plug your other monitor into another port.

However I am not 100% sure that they can have different refresh rates, though EVGA pixel clocker (what I use to OC my monitor) has an option for which monitor to overclock.

Oh and the QNIX QX2710 (DVI only) was the only really overclockable monitor that wasn't $500+, so if you are going down that route it might be your only option (but it is a damn good option)
