BenQ XL2411z might be a good choice if you don't mind spending a few hours dealing with it's god-awful default colour settings.

I got an AOC G2460FQ for about £140 last black friday, which isnt the best monitor but for 30% less of the cost of a xl2411z it was well worth it.

I just ordered this one, it's massively cheaper than any other 144 hz monitor I could find and it's apparently overclockable up to ~177 hz.

Pertcant go wrong w/ the classic ASUS VG248QE

can vouch for this monitor; also seems to be the most recommended one outside of benqs. I bought this for about ~$200 shipped during last year's black Friday sale. I might wait until a similar holiday and/or keep your eye on reddit.com/r/buildapcsales

Also about to do the same thing as OP, can anyone reccomend the Acer GN246HLBbid ? It's the cheapest I can find and looks promising.

VG248QE > xl2411z as the benq comes with everything you need for 3D, but asus doesnt which is why it is cheaper. You can buy something for it for 3D support later on.

Pretty much get the ASUS VG248QE unless you want to use 3D.

I'm pretty sure pc hardware doesn't work like that. Newer = better.

That's a nice theory you have there. Shame it's completely wrong.
The VG248QE supports 3D just fine.
It offers less options for light boost / blur reduction and uses PWM.
The colours are better on the XL2411Z as well, especially in light boost.

So if you want light boost get the XL2411Z.
If you don't want light boost don't get a monitor that supports it. Get the Acer GN246HL which is far cheaper.
Or the AOC G2460PF if you want FreeSync.

VG248QE blur reduction pales in comparison to xl2411z. Pun intended.

lightboost is still easy enough to get with blurbusters

if you want the cheaper one and want lightboost(input lagggggggg) still get the asus

Got it for around $140 off Jet back in December. Can't adjust height or angle much, the colors are a bit weird without fiddling around with a decent amount, and I've heard reports of dead pixels more so than other monitors. For half the price of the other entry level 144hz monitors, I'd say my purchase was really worth it, seeing as I haven't had dead pixel issues or any other issues. It also has a VESA mount that I don't use, but that adds a lot of flexibility not otherwise given.

Or if you want colours that don't make you want to gouge your eyes out in lightboost.*

Or if you don't want PWM because it gives some people headaches.

Or you know maybe you just want a monitor that allows you to set an earlier strobe to get rid of that

Mukhtar1input lagggggggg

In any of those cases get the BenQ.

*Trust me, the gamma in Lightboost on the Asus is so far beyond fucked up that even most calibration software can't fix it (and that's with a colorimeter).

Consider looking at BenQ's ebay store for a refurbished XL2411z. I bought mine from there, and it arrived in perfect condition. It had only ~25 hours of use before I received it. For me at least, ebay was cheaper than the BenQ Store because there was no tax and no shipping charge. And of course it was much cheaper than a brand-new monitor.

LG 24GM77-B is probably one of the best, maybe the best gaming monitor for gaming. It's color's are outstanding and it looks very nice. It also has the easiest and quickest way of changing settings using the monitor's 'OS' as it is using a joystick instead of buttons, although there are some to enable DAS mode, Game Mode and Black stabilizer. It also comes with lightboost labeled as Motion 240. Right now its 299 but it normally always dips down to 240 and even 220. Here is the amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics-24GM77-B-24-Inch-LED-Lit/dp/B00P0EOX1S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1468941584&sr=8-1&keywords=24gm77
