Looking for a decent gaming monitor circa $230

Hello I am looking for a good gaming monitor for my system. I have tried a few leds and so far I am less than impressed currently I am testing the Asus ve247h which is a decent led but the problem is that it has noticeable ghosting with dark text on a white background its not so bad in games but it is still noticeable and irritating at times.. I am not convinced that LED is the way to go bc the colors just appear to be so washed out (blue/yellow) no matter what settings I tweak. Basically I want something that is 22-24" that will provide good colors and good response time that is reliable and used by many gamers. Please advise and my rig is in my signature. What would you do in my situation?
