Monitors are a lot of personal preference. I like Asus monitors because they have nice black levels and color contrast, my personal monitor that I use is an Acer 24" and it's been a great monitor so far.

For gaming .....

1. TN panels, preferably with 120 Hz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

2. 60 Hz TN panels such as Asus 236 series

3. IPS panels, assuming you have a need for photo editing, IPS is the way to go. IPS is OK for gaming but can in no way stand up to the above.

For image editing .....

1. IPS panels from Dell / Eizo

2. Other IPS panels

3. TN panels..... the 120 Hz models will be overly saturated but can be calibrated to provide reasonable color accuracy.

As for 2ms or 5 ms, it would mean something if we could depend upon the manufacturer accurately presenting this data .... they don't....some list B2W and other G2G response times making them incomparable. Data from review sites OTOH can be reasonably be depended upon. Start here:

I have a 27" monitor, i know your want 20-25, but mine is great and does not look to big either.

Its an Asus VE278Q and it is awesome for the money you pay for it ( bought it from Amazon.co.uk)

At 27", I'd much rather get a 2560x1440 IPS monitor.

Jack didn't explain the differences between IPS, TN, VA, etc, so I will.

IPS means In Plane Switching. I won't get into the technicalities of it, but will tell you some of its advantages:

IPS panels that have 8-bit color can view 16.7 million colors while 10-bit IPS panels like the U2410 can view 11.2 billion colors (correct me if I'm wrong). They have better image quality, wider viewing angles (about 178 degrees from each side), but lower black levels and response times than TN Panels. The high-end IPS panels may or may not be unsuitable for gaming due to their high response times and input lag.

TN means Twisted Nematic. Some advantages:

TN panels have better black levels (but not the best), faster response times, but small viewing angles.

VA means Vertical Alignment

They have the best black levels, high contrast ratio, but the highest input lag and response times out of all TN and IPS panels.

Usually they have high input lag and response time, except for the e-IPS ones. However, since most people don't play competitively, it shouldn't be a problem. I am getting a 2560x1440 H-IPS panel for gaming.

At $100-200, that automatically kicks IPS and VA out of the equation, since most at that price range are low quality. Any TN panel that is 22-23" with reasonable response time (I recommend below 8ms) and 1080p would be good, like the VH238H.

Can I run games above 1080p with a gtx 670? And should I go for 16:9 or 16:10
