Default New Monitor Upgrade

My secondary died yesterday, so I'm sliding my Acer 23" to replace that one and buying a new primary display, trying to work around 150-200$ I game a lot and do a ton of image editing, any ideas?

I would prefer to use TigerDirect.com because the warehouse is right next to my house. Thanks.

I wouldn't take my chances buying a monitor from somebody. So far anybody with a PC that I have come across touches their monitor. That bugs the **** out of me.
