Looking to buy a monitor for gaming

Hello, I'm Carlos.

I'm looking for a monitor uptagrade because right now I'm using an old CRT screen.
I want it for gaming and watch movies (but I don't want a 21:9 one).
The perfect size would be from 21.5" to 24".
It must have HDMI connection because I want to conect my Xbox there too.
I want it to be FullHD (1920x1080 or 1920x1200).
I don't care about the fresh rate, I don't have a great rig (more like a buget rig) so I'm not going to play in 3D or 100fps. Everything over 60Hz is fine.
I have moreless 130€ (180$) to spend.
I'm from Spain so please, the links of shops that don't ship to Spain are useless.

I'm considering some options but I'm open to new suggestions.
21.5" Asus VE228HR
21.5" Lg 22EA63V-P IPS
21.5" Lg 22EA53VQ-P IPS
21.5 Samsung S22C300H
23.6" Philips 243V5LHAB LED
24 Samsung S24C350H

Thank you very much in advance.
And sorry for the bad english.

    My monitor, it's great, good viewing angles, vibrant colours, unobtrusive bezels. You can probably find it on a Spanish website for similar price.
  2. I've forgotten the spanish website for pc components. Can you tell me?

    You have Amazon, pccomponetes.com, xtremmedia.com, appinformatica.com and http://www.coolmod.com
  5. I have found that one, is good enough (It's very cheap, so if it's good for the price is OK)

    Its very cheap and looks enogh but Im not sure...
    I know that probably the one you said is better, but the Asus is OK for the money?
  7. no - too slow response time - gtg (5ms). It might be OK but not as good as the 2ms

    I know that 2ms is perfect, but 5ms is enough and I don't think it worth for my rig...
    thank very much, but if the Asus is good for the money I will go for it.
