Hey, I am looking to buy a 120hz monitor for gaming. I wish to spend £200-£300 I am currently using two 19" monitors so I don't want to change to a huge monitor, I'd prefer 23-24" opposed to 27". List of importance below:
1) 120hz
2) 1920x1080 resolution
3) Full HD
4) <5ms response time

Any other unlisted things I am not really fussed about :)  Any recommendations are appreciated. Also I heard you need dual link DVI-D? Would the monitor come with the needed cable(s)?

I suppose this is the same thing? It seems far cheaper than anything on the market even though this is shipped from US (to England). I noticed that it only comes with a VGA cable though. Will I need to buy a specific cable? Also it is manufacturer refurbished. I assume it is like new then?

Nevermind, I missed the $100 import charge

You'd need a dual link DVI-D cable for 120hz, and just realize its used and refurbished.
