Default New monitor 100-200$. Help

So I was watching a movie today and my monitor samsung syncmaster 192n flickers so I'm like ok w.e. The next thing I notice is a funky smell so I look up and see very small quantities of smoke coming from the top of the monitor. I quickly jumped up and as I did that it went black. I quickly unplugged it from the power and the computer and took it outside because the smell was just horrid.

So I'm guessing that the monitor is dead and It's been like 4-6 years that I've had it. IT was also like one of the first LCD's to hit the market. Anyhow so I am now stuck using this hunk of junk.

I have about 100-200$ that I can safely spend on a monitor.

I haven't shopped for em in years and have no clue what to look for.

I game (FPS, WoW, more FPS).
I watch movies.

I can only buy this from either futureshop or (CANADA!)

Anyone got any idea's for a monitor in the 100-200$ range?

Casual (AMD 4000+ x4) (Stock mobo) (750 Gig + 8 TB Xternal) (150 RAPTOR) (9800GT OC x2)

Torrenter (1.05GHZ) (Stock mobo) (250GiG) (9200 Radion) (Stock PSU) (768MB) (XP)
Laptop (Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.8Ghz) (2G) (8600GT) (XP/Vista) (500GiG)

here are a few that looked pretty good to me: - ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors $199.99 - LG W2243T-PF Black 21.5" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 30000:1 - LCD Monitors $189.99 - ASUS VH222H Black 21.5" 5ms HDMI Widescreen 16:9 Full HD 1080P LCD Monitor Built in Speakers 300 cd/m2 1000:1 (ASCR20000:1) w/ SPDIF out - LCD Monitors $179.99 - Acer X223Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2500:1 - LCD Monitors $159.99

Can't go wrong with either of those. the $199.99 seems pretty sweet, but if thats over budget for you, i would lean towards the $179.99 one...
