WOOT! Pay day, and y'all know what that means....New monitor day!

I wanted to get some feedback from y'all as to which one I should get.
Looking on "The Egg"

My only criteria is that I would like 1080p and under $250

Do you want one for gaming or for professional work like graphics, 3d modelling, etc ..?
The recommendations for both do change. Since gaming monitors need faster response times & good contrast ratios, hence one uses TN panel-type monitors. Whereas for professional applications, accurate color reproduction takes precedence over response time, which is where IPS / e-IPS panel monitors come into play.

For gaming:

It would be just for gaming; StarCraft 2, Diablo 3 and multi first person shooters. I am not looking to reach MAX settings for I only have a single 5770 at the moment.

Then it's fine. You can choose any of the ones recommended.
