Anyway, it is a great monitor for gaming. I imagine the 24" would perform the same. LED backlighting is not a big deal for a pc monitor. It may consume slightly less power but that is more important for laptops.
The ASUS is better for gaming, if that's what you are planning on. But I do believe there are better options out there, especially with the contrast ratio being 1000:1. I'd most definately keep an eye out, considering that there are going to be tech deals on monday at most stores.
On a side note, for monitors, size does matter. With bigger screens, you get more productivity. This is why people go with dual monitor displays. Just some helpful information.
I meant that the size difference of .4 inches is negligible. The whole reason that I want a new one is that my 17 inch is somewhat lacking for gaming.
Thanks for the tips, I'll see what comes up on Monday.
