Ok so im looking to buy a pc monitor for online gaming on my xbox 360 and i am in need of some help! Whats a good monitor to buy with low ms time (1 to 2) and low input lag as well thats from 24 to 27 inches big?

Heres a few i got in mind but i am wondering if a 1ms would be heeps better then a 2 ms for fast paced gaming? Cause right now i can see the input and ms lag from my hdtv i use for now

In order of the ones im looking at

Depending on your budget, there are much better. However the 360 isn't exactly demanding, especially in the multiplayer mode. Advanced graphics are sacrificed for streamlined processing. All that's left is contrast for gritty brown on black games and colour reproduction for brighter, colourful games.

Also, the panel technology plays an important role in how good the screen is. LCD and LED are the lighting, but the panel producing the pixels determines quality. I've been typing on my phone so I can't give you specifics, but most low price screens will use TFT panels (if I remember my acronyms correctly).

i have the 23 inch ASUS one you linked to. love it. Never had good experience with viewsonic so i say skip them.

I dont like playing games on my 30" monitor, wile playing COD it seems like most of the screen is where my eyes cant focus on without moving. might not seem like a big deal, but effects my FPS skills.
But im a PC gamer so i will most likely be sitting much closer to the monitor then you will be.

If you hook a computer moniter up to a 360 you may have some of your picture cut off do to over-scan and computer monitors not having over-scan. -may want to look into that
