[SOLVED] Which monitor should I buy next?

My old second monitor, which I have been using for around eight years, just blacked out and is completely broken, (yes I tested to see if it was the cord or the outlet), and now I need a new one!

I am taking suggestions for a new second monitor with a budget of $300.

I use my main for gaming, and I use my second monitor for Discord, YouTube, internet browsing, Netflix etc.

I would like a monitor with accurate color, at least 60Hz and a true 1ms response time, and 24" if not, somewhere close. I'd also like to stay at 1920x1080 monitors.

So what monitor do you think that I should buy?


My main monitor is an Asus VG248QE

Specs:
Mobo: ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING
CPU: Intel Core i7-8700 @3.20GHz
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX (4x8GB | 32GB @ 300Mhz)
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

For your budget you could probably get something better then your main monitor, at least something that has Freesync and supports the adaptive sync with Nvidia GPU's.

I posted my PC specs which I should have mentioned in the first place, if that changes anything.

You may need to make some minor adjustments on the graphic side depending on the game but I think this would be a solid upgrade on that VG248QE and would pair well with those specs.
Something I forgot to note is that I am trying to stay towards 1080p gaming for solid performance sake, while still being able to crank up the settings on games.
