Look for a 1920x1080/1200 resolution, 5ms or less response time, LED backlighting and preferably VESA mounting. If you had a bit more money, a 120hz monitor is also a good idea. As that will allow an FPS of up 120 to be displayed, and can also show a 3D image.

TL;DR: This monitor is fairly good for your budget.

Most TN panels already have a low 5ms response time, and since his budget doesn't have room for IPS panels, putting that as a monitor requirement is wrong.

There are plenty other monitors with greater response times that are good for gaming.

well my budget for a 24" is around $200; but if those 27" monitor is good and worth it I don't mind spending more to get it I don't mind eating bread for lunch for a month or so.

That 670 will let you game across three monitors, but I wouldn't expect great performance if you did.

Any monitor with a display in that has the same connection as the 670's display out will work. Basically, the screen has a DVI-D port, and the card has a DVI-D port. Will work.

A bigger monitor doesn't mean a better image. Its largely personal preference and budget constraints as to what size monitor you get.

Larger TN panels don't mean a better image, but a larger IPS panel monitor does mean better image quality.

If you don't get a lemon those 27" Korean monitors on ebay look pretty damn good - ~$300 and most people seem to report no issues.
