The BenQ LED VA EW2420 monitor is very good. 24", well within your budget and a knockout monitor at 1080p. Would be perfect for light-use and films if you ever wanted to.

As for gaming, it is not the best though. Slow response time, can give off a motion-blur effect sometimes but only during FPS or other fast-paced games and when you're in that kind of action it is barely noticeable unless you're concentrating on it; which you shouldn't be. As for WoW, RPGS, strategy games, this monitor won't suffer and I recommend it highly :)

But it does have its faults obviously.

Alternatively, I like LG's, but these are more expensive and not as good as a VA monitor which has incredible picture quality.
