New gaming monitor(<$1000) for new gaming comp (<$2000)

The new comp will be built with whatever specs are required to run the monitor I end up purchasing.

Priorities: Performance and picture quality. Basically I want the best picture quality (contrast, brightness, no ghosting, no color banding) with the best possible real-world performance (color representation, no input or post processing lag, viable connections, and decent viewing angle).

I am content with 1080p but would step up to a higher resolution if it would be a significant improvement in picture quality while maintaining adequate performance.

If I had to choose between two monitors with identical picture quality and performance, only one was larger, I would choose the larger one.

I have no desire to do anything in 3D.

Aside from gaming, I would be watching Blu-Ray movies and surfing/reading text.

I have read reviews, and have gotten conflicting suggestions as to what is adequate for gaming.

I probably won't be able to see most monitors in action before purchasing, I would like to air on the side of caution and choose something that will outperform my expectations as far as picture quality and performance.

Suggestions so far:

SAMSUNG S27A750D Black 27" 2ms Full HD 3D LED BackLight LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DCR 1,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

ASUS VE248H 24-Inch LED Monitor

ASUS VE258Q Black 25" 2ms HDMI LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor w/Display Port & Speakers 250 cd/m2 50,000,000:1 ASCR

HP LA2405wg Black / Silver 24" 5ms Height/Pivot/Swivel adjustable Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 3000:1(1000:1)

HP ZR30w Black 30" 7ms S-IPS Panel Height &Swivel Adjustable Widescreen LCD Monitor w/USB Ports 370 cd/m2 DC 3,000:1
