Best budget 144 hz monitor

Im currently looking for a 144 hz monitor. Preferably 27 inch but obviously doesnt fit my budget (below $300). Therefore I have to go with the 24 inches (not bad either). I'm currently deciding between 3 monitors all in stock on amazon.
Amazon.com: BenQ XL Series XL2411Z 24-Inch LED Monitor: Computers & Accessories

Amazon.com: Philips 242G5DJEB 144hz, 1ms Extreme Performance 24-Inch Professional Gaming Monitor: Computers & Accessories

Amazon.com: AOC G2460PQU 144hz, 1ms Ultimate Performance 24-Inch Professional Gaming Monitor: Computers & Accessories

It's hard to decide which one since i have no experience in these monitors.

Graphic card specs? I'm not an expert with graphics, but I do know that sometimes a midrange graphics card can limit performance on a great monitor and vice versa for an average monitor hooked up to a great GFX card..... just food for thought.

From personal experience the best thing you can do when buying any monitor (or TV) is to look at it yourself. You can't always hook up your own device to it, but by checking it out in person you can see what really pops and what looks good to your own eyes. Try to get over to a best buy or microcenter or someplace where they have these monitors you're looking into and check them out yourself! Doesn't have to be the same exact size as the one you're looking for, if they come in multiple sizes, as long as it's the same family of monitors.

Ok, so I would look into the quality of video that thing puts out and get a monitor that can handle that quality. By quality I mean framerate, refresh rate, signal frequency range, max resolution, anti-aliasing, etc.

Good luck! and like I said before, you really can't go wrong with checking out the monitors in person!

Thank you! And with your experience with any monitors, which one would you prefer based on brand, design, connections, etc? I'm trying to get people's opinion. Appreciate the response

Of those 3 I would recommend the Philips monitor, looks like it was really made with gaming in mind... read a good review here:Philips Brilliance 242G5DJEB: Review

says you need to do some tweaking to get the optimal display but that's easy to do, but this review also cites the BenQ XL2420T (BenQ XL2420T: Review which is similar to the one you had there as your first link.

But I would go with the Philips
