Default LED LCD Monitor

So, I just bought this but haven't opened it yet:

Newegg.com - ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) Built in Speakers

But now I am thinking I might want an LED instead:

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG BX2431 Glossy Black 24" 2ms LED BackLight LCD Monitor Slim Design 250cd/m2 DCR 5,000,000:1 (1,000:1)

Do you guys think it would be worth the extra money to do this if it is just for gaming? I don't really care about watching movies that much. Newegg said they won't charge me restocking or I'd never do it. And if it is the consensus that it would be worth it, is this the best 24" I can get for $250 or less?

CPU: Intel Core i7 920
Ram: 12GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
Mobo: ASUS P6T
PSU: 750W PC Power & Cooling

Yes LED looks much better and uses less power. That is a very good monitor, a similar one is: Newegg.com - LG E2441V-BN Black 24" 5ms Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 1000:1 which looks better in my opinion, has near similar specs (I don't think anyone notices a difference between 2ms and 5ms response time) and has free shipping so it's cheaper.
