Hello,
My new rig arrives on Sunday, comprised of 6Gb RAM, 2500k and an Asus GTX 570, I still need a monitor that I plan on buying tomorrow.

Now, the GTX 570 is not the best card out there but it's definitely a good one, however, with only 1.28 GB of VRAM, I am not sure what monitor to get.

What do you suggest? (Brand/Size/LED or LCD etc..)

What's the difference between LED and LCD? Anything significant?

Was thinking of trying to get a 23-24' LG, LCD Monitor but I'm not sure.

I'm not really a monitor person so I can't really help you as far as recommending specific models but I can help correct what might be a possible misconception. The monitor size does not have any correlation to the amount of VRAM used, that is determined solely by the resolution and game settings. The 570 with 1.25Gb of VRAM is more than adequate for any resolution up to and including 1920x1200, but I wouldn't want to go much higher than that, certainly not a 2560 screen. So you will be looking for either 1920x1200 or 1920x1080, 1080p is much easier to find than 1200 nowadays. I would also try for a IPS panel screen as opposed to a TN panel, the IPS has better viewing angles and color reproduction while the TN has a faster refresh rate. I have a TN screen because when I bought IPS were considerably more expense at the same size but now they are much closer to TN levels in the screen sizes you will be looking at. The viewing angle is what I'd like most from an IPS screen, TN colors and blacks get washed out if you don't look at it straight on.
