Monitor help

So I am just wondering what is a good monitor for gaming. Is 1920 x 1080 res good? or is it overkill? Would it be more economical to buy a cheaper one with less res. Will games use 1080 res? What GPU setup should i have to make use of the full capacity of 1920 x 1080?

lastly, what is the difference(other than size) in these two monitors, and are they good?

ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) Built in Speakers


ASUS VW246H Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) Built in Speakers

Thanks for the help.

Both are good monitors, but hunter has pointed out the difference between those...

I would suggest you stick with the 1080p resolution and Yes games do look good @ that resolution...but to drive that many pixels, you need high powered graphics...
Cards like the HD 4890 or the GTX 275 are the best bet...

I would suggest you get a lower sized monitor (Not resolution) like this one...and spend $30 on the graphics side...

1920 x 1080 isn't overkill, it is called pleasure. :) 

single 4890/gtx 275 will do the job for you. Don't settle for anything less.
