Monitor Line Up

All of them are: 24" - LED backlight - 2ms - 1080p

Which one would you pick and why? Getting ready to make the purchase as soon as I get some insight. Cheers

major differences seem to be in 2 areas. The first is the contrast ratios. I am not up enough on those to say it makes a real difference or not.

The other major difference is in connectors.
1. All have HDMI
2. All have d-sub
3. This is the only one with true DVI-D: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236102
4. This is only one with Display port: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236154
5. This one has DVI-D using HDMI to DVI-D cable: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236111

Here is the comparison page: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...E24-236-111-TS

Your running GTX 560 TI's. Suspicion is you want the DVI-D one but I could be wrong.

Yea the cheapest Asus there ($180 with rebate) has the lowest pixel pitch.

The next Asus ($204) has the same specs and connectors but the highest pixel pitch. Why is this more expensive then? [edit: I see, it has a real dvi port]

The final Asus ($215) has a way higher contrast ratio and the pixel pitch is in between the other 2.

I'll be connecting to them via HDMI anyhow but I'm really lost as to which one to choose... I'm leading towards the $215 monitor due to the higher contrast ratio and median pixel pitch but I really don't know much about monitor shopping.

Any more input from the community?
