Hello, over the last month i've been searching for a good monitor for gaming, but over all the options that i have seen i can't decide which monitor to get.

I was looking for a monitor that has the following in this list:
-Great Colors
-2ms Response time
-LED
-IPS Panel
-22" 23"
-1920 x 1080
-$250-$300

I really want a monitor with very good colors because the one i have now doesn't look good at all.

I mostly play FPS such as TF2, BF3, COD, CS:S...

Also i have been looking at these two, but i also want some reference for other brands rather than ASUS.

ASUS ML239H(Newegg Link)

ASUS VE248Q(Newegg Link)

I was looking for a monitor that has the following in this list:
-Great Colors
*really only two choices. 8bit ips for the best... or 6bit any other monitor for standard. in your budget you are looking at 6bit panels
-2ms Response time
*unless things have changed only TN type panels were in this range. TN panels also happen to be regarded as the worst in terms of visual quality due to the very bad off-angle color shifting.
-LED
*power savings but doesnt really improve image quality
-IPS Panel
*keep in mind the two tiers 6bit (e-ips) and 8bit (h-ips, s-ips, p-ips)
-22" 23"
*no comment, models should be available in this size
-1920 x 1080
*no comment, common resolution
-$250-$300
*at this price range the only ips panel you are likely to get is e-ips

with all that said i will elaborate on e-ips a little. this panel type does not offer any particular advantage in color accuracy over tn or va (8bit ips does) but does offer a much better (almost 180 degree) viewing angle without color shift. response time is higher than tn panels but is pretty much negligible nowdays so you dont have to worry about it.

other brands to look at: viewsonic or dell.

^^ good info from ssddx.

The closest thing to what you want is the dell u2312hm. It hits everything on your list except "2 ms response time." It's also e-ips (6bit + 2 bit afrc).

It has remarkably little input lag.
