I'm looking to purchase a new monitor for the primary purpose of gaming. I mostly play MMOS and ARPGS with the occasional shooter. My problem is I can't decide which type of monitor is best. I would like the best picture quality while playing as well as the largest screen I can get with my current budget. Also having an HDMI input would be a plus.

For my budget, I would like to stay under 350-400 dollars. I'm currently using a single gtx 670. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Yeah the Dell looks nice. Only thing it is missing is the HDMI input. I don't plan on playing in 3D. Would there be any ghosting issues with the Dell? And would there be more benefit to getting a 120 Hz display over an IPS? Also what are your thoughts on getting a 27" vs 24"? Is there much of a difference? Thanks for the reply.

The HP ZR2440w is really similar to the Dell U2412M, but with a few extra features that might be helpful to you, like HDMI.

There's also this new one from ASUS, in the same category:

And you might consider getting the famous $350 Korean catleap 27" 2560x1440 IPS display, if you don't mind dealing with a wretched stand and barebone features:

Depends on what you are planning to use for the HDMI port for, you could always use a DVI to HDMI cable assuming you don't need sound.

Not that you would really notice, the only time you notice ghosting is if your motion-sensitive, or are hardcore into FPS's. The benefit would be similar to the ghosting issues, things might look "smoother" in FPS games. You would notice the difference in a 27 vs 24 in screen, I mean I notice the difference between a 22 and a 24".
