I'm looking for a monitor between $100 - $200. I'm buying these parts today. Currently i'm eyeing this http://www.amazon.com/Asus-VS248H-P-24-Inch-Full-HD-Mon...

I want: LED (is a must), built in webcam (would like), don't need speakers, don't need ips, would REALLY like something a tad better than 1920x1080 to fully take advantage of my graphics card. If this isn't possible in my price range, scratch the webcam and then the over 1920x1080 (no lower than that though, please). Not too concerned with brightness or response time. NEED Hdmi port. 20" - 30", preferably between 24 and 27 inches.

It's hard to choose a monitor since there are so many good, comparable options at a wide range of prices.

I should mention that customer service/returnability is a big thing for me. Since this is my first time and since i'm building this on a time crunch, if anything needs to be returned or replaced i want that taken care of ASAP w minimal hassle.
