Price range $100-$185.

Sold my GTX 680 and 3D monitor, going to get a 670 and a single 1080p 60hz monitor. 120hz was too demanding for even my 680 so I decided to pass on the 120hz thing.

I want something for competitive LAN FPS gaming, so no ghosting, and great response time please.

21.5 or 23 or 24 inch only please.

for that price range, just walk into best buy and test the monitors yourself. grab a window and drag it across the screen and see if you can read the text while its moving - the clearer the text while the window is in motion, the less ghosting the monitor has.

otherwise you gotta pay:

SAMSUNG P2770FH ToC Rose Black 27" 1ms Full HD HDM...

I've been using strictly Dell monitors since 2005 and besides the 2408(which I returned), I think they're definitely worth a look...and to save some money go to the Dell Outlet. The U2312 and the P2412 can both be had at the top end of your range. The U2312 has been one helluva gaming monitor from my experience - at least.

I've bought many monitors from the outlet and have never had a problem with a single one of them. By many I mean over 100. They come looking new and no dead pixels. Although, if you did get a dead pixel they'll happily exchange it.

Best,
