Default New Gaming Monitor

Well, I'm looking to buy a new monitor and, just want some suggestions or, some confirmation that the one I'm looking to buy is good or not

Things i want

* Under $200.00
* Widescreen
* 22"+
* 1000 Contrast Ratio+
* Resolution of 1680 x 1050 or more
* Brightness of 300 cd/m or more

I'm looking at this - SCEPTRE X22HG-Naga Black 22" 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 (DCR) - LCD Monitors

Is this a good monitor? Or is there something out there better.

Please let me know

You might want to go to a store an look at some monitors before you buy one.

I went to best buy to look at a 19" Samsung and a 22" Acer that was only $20 more and I ended up with the Samsung because the picture was vastly superior.

AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition : Asus M4A89GTD PRO : Corsair 550VX
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4x2gb DDR3 1600 : MSI Geforce GTX 770 2gb : Antec 300
OCZ Agility 2 60gb SSD (OS) : SanDisk Ultra 120gb SSD (Apps) : Crucial M500 240gb (Steam) : Win 8.1 Pro 64bit
2x Samsung 2494LW & 1x Dell U2312HM Eyefinity

Lenovo ThinkPad X220 : Core i5 2410M : 12.5" 1366x768 IPS LED display : Intel 320 Series 120gb SSD

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 stock 4.3 : Nexus 7 2 stock 4.4

Acer isn't my cup of tea. They look good and they seem great because they have the specs you want. But in reality there garbage (there are a few good models). I have seen so many people buy these monitors and take them back. Best buy has B-Stock and there mostly Acer's. I would recommend a(n) LG. But I dont recal seeing an LG for $200.00 other then a 19in. I own to of these grab one! There Nice. Its everything you asked for and more:
