So i've almost got all the parts for my PC and am now looking for a monitor. I would like to spend $300-$400 and it has to be in Australia (Unless shipping is free to Australia). I'm looking for a HD 120Hz monitor as i will be using it for gaming. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks again.

EDIT: I would prefer 24"

I have had an ASUS VG236HE for a year (don't know if they are still made) and it is excellent in 120Hz 2D mode. A stuck purple pixel appeared a few months after getting it which seems to be a common problem, but other than that it's a nice monitor
