Look up a bunch of reviews.. They should tell you what YOU Want in the monitor. Me? I would want a low input lag since I play fast paced FPS games. An artist? Accurate colors and a high resolution. A grandma? Something cheap and reliable...

So...is there a nice <24 inch monitor good for gaming and graphics design?

Why? Anything with oxygen in it is less dense so it will eventually go up. Anything without more dense than water will sink. You can't fight gravity.

5x Best Monitor Award for a 24" and its fairly cheap. Might have to look at others sites to find it though but all around a good monitor.

I have had really bad luck with LED monitors and ghosting but if you are willing to take a chance with ghosting try this one. It has lots of good reviews on it so I may have just got a defective model.

The matte finish on both of these monitors is better for graphics design than a glossy finish. This is because glossy can tend to produce false colors. Also since your gaming both these monitors have a 2ms response time. Keep in mind both of these monitors will have to be calibrated out of the box to look good.

How about this De-Zant? It has 2ms response time (doesn't matter to you) and has a 120Hz refresh rate.

Same explanation as before. That Acer monitor has a TN panel and 120hz which makes it suited for gaming purposes mainly.

If you are a hardcore gamer who solely uses your PC for gaming, this would be ideal for you. Or, you could choose one of Samsung's 120hz alternatives.

However, if you are using your monitor for spontaneous gaming, you should consider a quality monitor with an IPS panel.

This.

I game a lot, but also do video editing/Photoshoping, so an IPS was the best choice for me. You can get them for cheap too. The U2211H is ~$250, and HP has a few also around that price point.
