Are you having difficulty searching those online shops yourself? You would be the best one to do it as you can read the language.

Good gaming Monitors in LED just need to have a fast Response time and your GPU card should push 1080P just fine. Good luck!

personally... 'cheapest' & 'gaming' are not what i look for at all, i wouldnt want to see a pretty game on something with horrible colors & viewing angles

biggieshady is on the right track, cheap IPS panels, which wont be the cheapest monitors ever, wont be 120hz, but should look good

if you want to make good choice but you dont know anything on in this field then better educate yoursalf. then you will be able to make proper requirements list.
when you know what you want it will be easy to find what you need.
i would suggest you to start your education from here http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles.htm
since gaming is your first priority look carefuly at input lag testing.
when you know what to look after check reviews for models that fit your needs and then check pricing&avialability in your country.

btw what are RON/euro rates.

Gaming monitor, input lag, referesh rate, etc. depends mostly on person to person basis. I am fine with gaming at 20fps (even 7 when it comes to RTS games like Starcraft 2), without knowing what your standards are its hard to recommend one which suits your needs perfectly without being overly expensive.

I like Asus's VH stuff. I have VH242H which isn't sold anymore but they have newer versions, its always around $130 for a 23 to 24" monitor. Good quality btw.

I'd still prefer a ASUS or BenQ monitor over a Philips. Philips just isn't really known for their computer monitors.

Oh, and I don't know why I was thinking you were looking at a Packard Bell monitor at first.
