I´m on a 22 now and I have it almost as close as I can, just so when playing I can rest my wrist on the edge of the table and the monitor just behind the keyboard. About the colors, right now I´m on a Syncmaster 2233rz. I´ve just set brightness on the screen to 100 and digital vibrance to max (100?) in Nvidia control panel. I prefer the black parts of the map to be more gray but otherwise colorful, easier to spot enemies. Which monitor would suit me best? ASUS 24" VG248QE or ASUS 27" VG278HE? BenQ 24'' XL2411T are also available but it´s so god damn ugly compared to ASUS imo. If it´s equal i prefer ASUS, but performance is more important so if it´s better i buy that.
Get a 24" because larger screens are not as good for gaming in general (you want the smaller view size so you can focus on more of the scene at any time, and you want what you are used to - moving a big monitor back is nowhere near the same experience as having a smaller monitor closer to you if you are a gamer)
Secondly the performance of the XL2411T and the VG248QE are exactly the same, apart from a few features that probably won't matter to you: Asus has it's little crosshair thing, BenQ has some light enhancement thing (which does what you say, it makes black areas appear grey and easy to spot enemies, but to be honest you won't need it and you can't activate it during lightboost anyway).
Lightboost works fine on any resolution.
Don't worry about colours, there's no point the differences can't be felt when competitive gaming.
I'd get the cheaper out of XL2411T or VG248QE, but if you want to get the one that looks nicer to you then go for that. Think of them as the same monitor.
