- Size?
- Smoothness or Picture quality?

The size i want 24' monitor
Actually i dont really know about 120hz or Ips but i already read some of a article ..they said ips have better picture quality but the respone time is above 2ms? And they said respone time not actually important (misleading)...

You have to choose accurate colours or really fast pixel response times. Unless you go down the 27" Korean route but finding the 120hz capable units is hard to find these days.

If you have not been spoiled by 120hz and happily used a 60hz LCD in the past i'd recommend just getting a IPS screen instead if you only plan to have a single monitor.

The Dell U2412M & ASUS PA248Q seem to be the best IPS screens in the 24" range that balance good image quality with decent gaming performance. Both are 16:10 1920x1200.

Are you going to do any photo editing work? if not, go for 120hz TN panels Benq and Asus are good, also check Samsung

I personally use Dell U2412 but this is because i do photo editing work, but i also do a lot of gaming like BF3, its decent for gaming, but i had LG 120hz and when switching to Dell U2412 i immediately noticed more input lag, but i got use to it.

But if i was you and needed a monitor for gaming because right now i'm thinking buying a second monitor just for gaming, i would definitely go with 120hz TN
