Hello all, I am trying to upgrade my monitor (LG W2343T 23in) to further accentuate the components of my newly build rig (specs in sig). My budget for a monitor is about $300, preferably a little less. I am currently stationed in TX and the only place for me to buy stuff is Tiger Direct (horrible I know). I have picked out a few that are currently available in store and am having a difficult time deciding between them. :shrug:

1) $229 - BenQ GW2750HM 27" Class Widescreen LED Backlit Monitor - 1920 x 1080, 16:9, 20000000:1 Dynamic, 5000:1 Native, 4ms, HDMI, DVI, VGA, Energy Star

2) $239 - AOC e2752Vh 27" Class Widescreen LED Backlit Monitor - 1920 x 1080, 16:9, 20000000:1 Dynamic, 60Hz, 2ms, HDMI, DVI, VGA, Energy Star

3) $259 - Viewsonic VA2703 27" Class Widescreen LCD Monitor - 1920 x 1080, 16:9, 15000:1 Dynamic, 1200:1 Native, 3ms, DVI, VGA

4) $319 (slightly over budget) - ASUS VE278Q 27" Widescreen Full HD LED Monitor - 1080p, 1920x1080, 16:9, 10000000:1 Dynamic, 2ms, Integrated Speakers, DVI, VGA, HDMI

I am quite interested in LED monitors as they seem to be more vivid and higher quality. Unfortunately, I am not very well versed on monitors as I am with most components. I play MMO's and FPS's on the rig, nothing else. Whatever information you all can give is greatly appreciated.

I was leaning toward the ASUS as well, seems to be the best of all those. Not to mention I have faith that ASUS will provide an amazing product for my needs. I was looking at screens that were a little bit bigger but I think I would exceed my price range by quite a bit
