New gaming monitor!

Looking for new set of dual gaming monitors. I like Samsung and ASUS. 22-24 inch is what im looking for. two monitors. Loads of mixed reviews of everything. Willing to spend around 200 each. Any advice on whats best would be greatly appreciated.

Looking at Samsung S24A350H

or the 22 inch version.

Get the Samsung 24's and don't look back. Maybe make sure they have universal mounting points for a riser stand and a possible third monitor later ! The Asus's are sweet but I would go with the Sammy's, I went with LG's and I wish I had waited for the prices to fall on the Samsung's.

I bought a 24" Viewsonic VS2450 earlier this year.
LED lit.
Bright and clear.
Best monitor I ever owned.
$175 on sale, regularly $200.

I wouldn't honestly be concerned about it being for gaming. I think that's an overblown comparison factor in a monitor. As long as it looks good, has sharp text, and is from a reputable manufacturer, that only leaves costs and features to consider.
