Which 27-inch monitor should I get for gaming ?

Hello,

I wanted to buy 27inch monitor for gaming with 2/1ms, 120/144hz and 3D
there are only two available monitors with the same spec I'm looking for
in my country but unfortunately they are really expensive:
Asus VG278H - 591$
Samsung S27A950D - 527$

So I searched for a cheaper 27inch monitor and I found two:
Samsung S27B750V - 282$
Samsung S27B550V - 265$

they almost have the same spec 2ms, 60hz and Contrast 3000:1
I don't know which one should I get and should I even get anyone of them or they are both rubbish ?

I'll use the monitor for PC & PS3 Gaming & Movies
But mainly for gaming.

I got the prices from here:

Thanks in advance

  2. from what I can gather the Samsung has a better picture. And seeing how they've been in the business a lot longer than Asus, I think that's where I would go.

    but unfortunately I can't get it online from outside my country
    because the price will be doubled from shipping and taxes
    and also there will be no warranty.

    they are good for gaming right (input lag) ?
    and they are 60hz ? because when I saw again there spec on samsung website
    I did noticed the hertz/refresh rate is not written!
    I want to make sure it's 60hz not less.
