Best Mid-Range Monitor? Around 200$

I'm looking for a monitor for around 200$ to go with my new build. The issues that arise for me, is the connectors... I'm not sure which monitor will provide me with sufficient connections with room to work. I've researched a fair amount and I've come up with some specifications I'm looking for.

1. ~200$

2. 24" minimum LCD monitor

3. 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 Resolution

4. LED Back Light

5. Preferably 5ms or lower response times.

6. And of course great picture quality, a nice sleek look (I prefer glossy).

So my issue mainly is what type of connectors should I have? HDMI/DVI/VGA. After researching, I'm drawing closer to the conclusion that VGA will become obsolete, or is already obsolete. I've been looking for a monitor with DVI/HDMI connectors, but have only found VGA/HDMI, or DVI/VGA, or all three. But when it's all three, the monitors don't have an LED back light. >.<

I'm looking for a monitor that can grant me the most options for a reasonable price, and won't hinder my performance. There could be potential for me hooking my PC up to a TV (but this is a stretch).

Any help is appreciated.
