I say get the Asus, it has higher resolution and better pixel pitch. Images don't come out as sharp with lower pixel pitch.

We are moving to Full HD 120hz LCD Monitor for gaming and not 60hz.

These are the future 120hz monitors:

I just noticed 3 threads featuring the more or less the same title asking for opinions on the same 4 monitors and same text.

120hz 1080p. Honestly I'd say wait a bit if you can to see more reviews on the new ones but the benefits are huge for everything, especially gaming.

Also thanks for those links techno-boy, I've actually been looking into them and haven't seen all that information but got the same gist that the acer is the best deal despite the funky product coloring.

120hz displays refresh 120 times a second vs 60

So basically, it allows you to go up to 120 fps in games, gives you a much smoother and less eye straining 2d experience, significantly reduces ghosting and also produces perfectly rendered movies.

fyi most movies you'll watch play at 24 fps. 60 is not a multiple of 24, so every 1 in 24 frames will be delayed a bit. However 120 is a multiple of 24, so you'll have no delay there. Also being higher would reduce any delay there is anyway.

It's hard to say exactly how big the benefit is if you've never used higher refresh rates before (if I had to guess, I'd say you're younger and never played around with decent crts). But to me, the higher refresh rate is night and day and is better in everything.
