Find yourself a refurbished Acer GD235HZ 120hz display. I've got 3 of them and they're fantastic for gaming. 23.6" in size and absolutely great 3D capable 120hz gaming monitors with no input lag. You can find them refurbished for $180, or new for $339

During Christmas I seen a 23" 1920 X 1080 16:9 50:000:1 Acer for $109.
CrossfireX 5850's could push a 24" 16:10 1920 X 1200 easily as well, but you will pay a little more for one of those.

What kind of connectivity do you need?

I'd recommend getting something with a good refresh rate primarily. Input lag is not a spec that is generally listed, you have to go by reviews for that.
I don't recommend getting a 120 Hz monitor unless you can push enough frames to make it worth it. For most games on a 5850 I'd say stay with 60 Hz.
Also, unless you're in to 3D, skip it. It's costly and more taxing on your GPU. Just my preference, but I'd rather have performance over headache-inducing 3D.

As far as brands go, Dell, Samsung, Acer, Asus, and Viewsonic are thought to be good brands. I'm American so I don't what you can get in the UK, so I don't think I can recommend specific models. However, I'm looking into getting a refurbished Alienware AW2210 from Dell's refurb outlet. 2 ms refresh rate, 1080p, and up to 83% color gamut on a TN panel is nice. Might be a nice choice for you as well if its available, it has HDMI and DVI inputs as well as a USB hub and 3.5 mm jack passthrough.

I'd like a HDMI slot atleast, think it's better than dvi,and I was looking for the refresh rate 120, because atm I see fate lines going up my screen, and I thought if i picked a monitor with 120 refresh rate it would fix this issue, I've tryed my pc on another monitor and it still does it, it's very fate but can be annoying.
