Need a new monitor.. 120Hz

Hey all. So my current monitor is broken, and I'm using a CRT.. which has a refresh rate of 75. And guess what, on games where I get more than that FPS, I can feel the difference in smoothness. So, I looked online for a while and found that there are lots of 120Hz monitors out there now, and I really want to get one of them. All games that require quick reaction I can run at more than 120 FPS for sure, so its not a waste. However, I want a few things from the monitor:
1] It needs to be at least 1920X1080
2] It has to be 19-22" because of limited desk space - but not smaller as I want something that I can see from several meters for watching movies.
3] Price should be around $200, but I can go up to $300 and if really needed, $400. [but then I'd have to wait for a while]
So, I looked on Newegg and it seems most monitors there are either too big, or too expensive, or have 1650x1050 res.
Could someone suggest a few monitors with those specs? Also, I would really like to not get an Acer, as I've had bad experience with their monitors especially. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Have to specify subsection, don't know which one.. I have an ATi 6970 so I guess AMD Radeon works.. move to the right one if it doesn't please.

    That is not a 120hz monitor. It has a 60hz max refresh rate at 1080p.

    I did a newegg search, and the only monitor that comes close to your requirements is an Acer, and it too is 23.6".

    Yeah, even though it has pretty good reviews I don't really want an Acer. And the size is too big. One thing - it doesn't have to be on newegg, just has to ship to US. Also, I guess I can go up to $425. Anything else that could fit those requirements?
  4. No, sorry. I browsed TigerDirect for about 45 minutes and came up with only 23" monitors from Acer or Samsung that almost met your criteria. The only issue is the size. I can't find anything smaller than a 23" that's 1920X1080P/120HZ

    Thanks for your input everyone, and especially you.
    I have chosen this:
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/788278-REG/ASUS_VG236HE_VG236HE_23_Widescreen_LCD.html
    Its not very expensive, and matches everything except size, but I can live with that. Thanks again!
