What kind of work are you going to be doing on your computer?

They're both TN panels so color quality will be mundane.

For gaming, it's hard to tell. The Asus monitor is rated at 2ms GTG while the HP is 5ms GTG (I think), so you'd be best with the Asus.

Without any professional tests, you won't know the differences in color gamut and input lag. Seeing as they're both TN panels, color shifting will be noticeable if you look from either angle.

So the Contrast Ratio does nothing?

Cause Im looking at the spec of monitors on Newegg and i noticed that the more expensive monitor have higher contrast ratio.

I own that Asus, as seen in my sig rig. It's nothing mindboggling, but for $200, there aren't any features that I have a complaint about. If you already own the 25" HP, skip out on the monitor.

EDIT: I suppose the response time IS worth mentioning, as SimpleTech did. You'll probably notice things being just a tad smoother in games; however, it's not a big enough deal to warrant the money spent since you're not upgrading size. Save your money for a 120Hz monitor.

Response rate huh?

Im looking at my monitor specs right now and it say "5 ms (on-off) (typical) 3 ms (GTG)"

So do this monitor have 5ms or 3ms?

GTG is what is pretty much always reported in monitor specs, so for the sake of comparison, 3.
