Hello. Could you recommend any good monitors with native resolution 1920x1080, up to 5ms response time. Price range around 150$. Primary use is for gaming. Or at least say which manufacturers I should avoid or which ones to keep eye out when looking for one.

----

So far my choice is Benq GW2320 23" IPS/16:9/1920x1080/250cdm2/5ms/H-178,V-178/20M:1/VGA,DVI-D/Tilt,Vesa/Glossy Black/Flicker-Free, maybe someone can find something better.

That's a solid screen, not sure you're going to be able to find better for the price. I've been super impressed with my Benq VA panel. For all the nightmare stories surrounding VA I wasn't expecting much out of it. I have to say it may not be an IPS, but image quality is superior to a TN panel it also has no issues with ghosting during gaming or color bleed, or temperature blackout (ie cheap VA's if in the sun will begin to overheat and blackout a portion of the screen) or terrible color quality when viewed from an angle. It's been solid. I highly recomend Benq's panels I'm sure an actual IPS would be even better.

I'm using that screen at work (programming, not graphic design). From that perspective it's a nice monitor, good choice!
