Im building a new PC:

- i7 2600k
- Corsair h80
- Western Digital caviar black 2TB
- G.skill 8GB 1600MHz
- Thermaltake tough power grand 750w
- Asus v8z68-V Pro
- Msi Gtx 560 ti Hawk

I will be using this system for gaming, preferably first person shooter games. I dont know what monitor to get with my system, i have about $200 - $300 to spend on a good gaming monitor. I will be gaming in 1920x1080 and looking for about 22" - 25", 2ms and HDMI.

im on a tight budget so i wont be able to get a 3d monitor. I will probably upgrade to sli in the future or just get a better card. I dont know what brand of monitor to choose, ive heard good things about samsung so are they the way to go?
 
Samsung is alright.I'm on my 2nd monitor from them and I like it.Either LG or Asus also make good monitors.

The Asus model is very popular.

If not another GTX560ti then I suggest with your left over money you get a SSD.It really is worth every penny.Takes me 10 seconds from when I press the power button till I open the web browser.Really the only reason it takes even that long is because I wait on the BIOS.

Im getting a z68 mobo which has the intel smart response technology and i have already picked out a 60GB SSD from ocz. So if i have enough i might SLI sooner or should i really go for a 3D 120MHz monitor? Is it worth spending the $400 - $500 on one?
