There's no such thing as 'Full LED' (i.e. pixels that are LEDs) in desktop monitor sizes, LEDs aren't made that small, all screens are LED backlit LCDs. There are various types of LED backlighting, a screen can use edge-lit or direct backlighting and White LEDs or RGB LEDs so perhaps you've seen one of those marketed as full LED.

Also can anyone can any one telling what VA led is???? and what's the differance.

VA is a type of LCD, not a type of LED. In comparison to the TN-type more common at your price range they'll generally have better black levels (contrast) and better viewing angles (less distortion at the edges of the screen) but more ghosting from movement. The differences are easily noticeable, but not massive.

p.s. Ignore the manufacturer's claims on things like contrast, response time and viewing angles they're largely meaningless these days.

I don't think you will have any problems, at that price there is not really much between the monitors other than aesthetics and features.
I probably would have got one with speakers so i could use it for xbox to via HDMI, but that doesn't matter if using with PC/speakers
