At one time, IIYAMA was one of the top VGA monitors.
Based on that, I would think they were OK.

The integrated sound does not seem like much of a plus. Even a very cheap discrete speaker set will give you better sound.

But all depends on price.
I think from a quality point of view, Samsung is the best. They make the panels for many other vendors, and I think they keep the best samples for themselves.

With your GTX670, can you consider a 2560 x 1440 27" monitor? Yes, they are expensive, but a great monitor will last you a long time.

If you are willing to take a bit of a flyer, look into the catleap and similar 2560 x 1440 monitors selling on ebay for $350 or so.
There are some forums with lots of discussions and some very good reviews.

How much is that IIYAMA?

If you will be using 1080P(1920x1080) then 24" is probably a good size. 27" will still be the same resolution with bigger pixels.
Your budget will buy a Samsung.

The 2560 x 1440 Monitors will be more like $800. The really nice thing about them is the increased 178/178 viewing angle.
It keeps the monitor from being washed out if your head is not centered in front of the screen.

Many games limit the FPS to 60 which coincides with the refresh rate of many monitors. That seems like enough to me.
I wonder about the value of 120hz for gamers.

You are right to be cautious, but do some research. google "catleap forums" There is some interesting stuff there, and not bad at all.
It seems that one source for them is monitors that were not perfect that were destined for apple monitors.
That might seem like a bad thing, but many users seemed to be very satisfied.
I have no problem with ebay purchases so long as the seller has a good feedback rating and you pay with paypal.
