Buying bigger screen for gaming,need advice?

Guys need a full 1080p HD LCD/LED,out of these which is the best? (only these are available in my area)
1:Viewsonic VX2260wm
2:ViewSonic VX2433wm Review - Watch CNET's Video Review
3:ST2220L 21.5 inch Widescreen LCD Panel Monitor with High Definition LE | Dell
4:ViewSonic VX2439WM 24-Inch Wide Full HD Monitor features HDMI Input and SRS Premium Sound on Sale | Full HD 1080p LED Monitor Reviews
I have no idea about screens and barely know anything so asking here,will be upgrading real soon and these are the best choices . Almost all are costing me 150$.

ViewSonics are not your top shelf monitors. I think HP or Dell monitors are better.

I would imagine there around the same qaulity i have used many Viewsonics that offer an array of goodies

I did happen to get a 27 inch that was about 349.99 I also looked into DELL and HP but it seems to be a little on the dim side vs Viewsonics the color don't look to bright and livly

It is your choice though i wouldn't push anything on you that you didn't want with that being said you are looking for HP or Dell correct ?

Well i can certainly comment on number 4 for you as i have one.

Picture is crisp although a little light bleed from the bottom of the screen (Never really notice it). The built in speakers are pants (To put it bluntly) but i never use them. I did use them round at a friends one time when i took my PC to his for an evening of LAN gaming. Also the stand it is on may look nice but if you have any give in the desk it sits on your monitor will wobble due to the small stalk of the stand.

Apart from them little niggles the picture is great and has never let me down and i shall probably stick with it until the day it dies (Or i do lol) I actually got lucky with mine as i had a Viewsonic 19" before hand, and a friend asked me if i would like a free upgrade to this one in exchange for my old one that he need for a computer he built for someone else. I love freebies!

I can't give you any feedback on the others but i'm sure there are plenty of reviews out there. Good luck with what ever you choose

If you can save money, avoid monitors with speakers as they really suck, if you have no choice then, by all means.

You seem to be like me, not to analytical about what monitor to use for gaming so, buy the biggest you can, with the biggest resolution for the money you want to spend... unless you are looking for that one where you can see the sweat in the forehead of your enemies
