Default Which monitor is better(help please!!)?

I'm looking into purchasing a monitor, hopefully by tonight, but i'm having a hard time deciding on which one. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Newegg.com - Hanns·G HW-223DPB Black 22" 5ms HD 1080P supported DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail
Newegg.com - Acer X222Wbd Glossy Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 1000:1 - Retail

Oh, and btw, I do some casual gaming, some cs source, hopefully sc2, and probably going to hook up my xbox 360 onto it. And yea, that samsung 226bw... i could get for about 275 total also but i really dunno. please help!!!

best regards, chris
