Well a projector is a big difference compared to a monitor. A projector won't have the crispness and color reproduction a monitor will have. It really depends on what you are going for.

Benq XL2420T is very good.

If you already have an ok monitor for general desktop use, and don't care about 3d, then the projector should rock. If you do need a good monitor for all uses, I'd seriously consider xl2420t

Looks like a pretty nice monitor.

If budget is for either a projector, or a monitor upgrade, I'd get the projector. A monitor upgrade isn't going to mean much to you unless you want 3D then there are good options, the first of which should be the XL2420T in my experience. But you already have a pretty decent monitor, so if your budget can stretch, I'd look at the 1080p 3d vision projectors, I know they're always coming down in price pretty fast, but if you don't care about 3D then there must be a lot of options in 1080p for a similar price to a 27" LCD. 27 is really too big for 1080p in a monitor anyway because of the dot pitch, but a projector would be a pretty big upgrade if your main priority is 2d gaming.
