Hi, I have a build sorted out, but I was wondering what would be a good gaming monitor for a $150-180 price range that runs at a native res of 1920x1080 or 1920x1200, I was looking at the 23.6 inch Asus VH242H , but you guys always seem to know the answer to tech stuff, so what do you recommend?

I got this about one year ago and can't say anything bad about it. (other than no hdmi support but at a price under $200 thats expected.) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003HFCDLY
I'd always rather have 1920x1200 because im a giant multitasker. and the more i can squeeze on each monitor the better. Not all games scale perfectly to 1920x1200 though its great for having one window on half the screen and another on the other half. My monitor is 21.5" and i think thats the perfect size for 1080p because anything higher and you would lose the pixel density and be able to see the pixels more. Like a 20" monitor at 1920x1080 will look a lot better than a 24" one. the 24" one will just be bigger and you will see more pixels. 1920x1200 is basically being able to fit two webpage on one screen (one on each half) and they won't get squeezed. at 1920x1080 a slight bit will get cut off. Gaming it won't make much of a difference but using programs on the desktop it will.
