Default Which monitor for gaming?

Hello everyone, I am new here. Just looking for some advice on a good Monitor, particularly for gaming.

Here are the two best ones I have found so far that are in my price range:

ASUS VS Series VS238H-P Black 23" 2ms HDMI LED Backlight Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 50,000,000:1 - Newegg.com

and

Hanns-G 24 Class LED Monitor - 1920 x 1080, 16:9, 40000000:1 Dynamic, 1000:1 Native, 5ms, VGA, DVI, Energy Star (HE247DPB) at TigerDirect.com

The only main differences that I have found that I care about is that the Hanns-g is 1" larger (although some websites say the same model is 23.6", not 24"), and the hanns-g is 5ms response time and the ASUS is 2ms. Do you think the 3ms discrepancy matters?

I am also open to any other suggestions of monitors that are in my price range ($90-$130). I would be willing to go a little more, only if it is extremely worth it.

Thanks

They both simply look like low-end consumer monitors, I say pick the cheapest one.

Hanns-G = Unreliable, over priced for what it is. Plus they use other companies parts most of the time anyway!

Personally, i love Samsung monitors. I usually favor screens designed for Video/Picture editing!

This one seems to be quite nice if the price is not an issue..
