Monitor Help - New gaming monitor lost and need help. (Current Monitor/Video Card Info Included)

Hello, I'm looking to buy a new gaming monitor and am looking for choices. I'd like to keep it under 600 at the maximum and would like either a 24 inch or 27 inch monitor. I have no idea what to look at or which monitors would offer a good image and response time.

I play some FPS (casually) and mostly other games like MMORPGs. My video card currently is a:

"EVGA SuperClocked+ GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card "

The monitor I'm currently using is a: "ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor W/Speakers"

I'm looking for something with a decent response time for gaming but with good color.

I'd also like to use my current monitor as a second monitor (for web browsing etc while gaming). I've read some about the Korean Monitors but I'm not sure if I should get those as I'm worried about all the issues that you can have with them.

Also, should I be looking at G-Sync or no? Like I mentioned above I do play some FPSs right now but not on a serious level just for fun.

Since I mainly play MMOs and such I really want the game to look nice with good colors I just don't want a really bad response time or refresh rate.

Hopefully you guys can give me some choices as I'm really lost right now.



Thanks in advance!

Pavilion 23bw? Its 23 inches, but is very slim and sleek looking. I use it, and it works great for gaming. Only use V-Sync if you SEE tearing.

I'd like something at least 24 inches if possible. With a response time probably around 5-6 ms since it should be good for gaming. I take it the IPS really makes the colors and graphics look better yes? I have a TN panel right now. Also is the G-Sync stuff good? I heard it doesn't work with borderless windows which I do use on some games.
