The gateway monitor has a slightly faster response time of 4ms and has HDMI input. Other than that they are identical. Trust your eyes if the other one looks better then it would be the better choice.

Always look for the monitor for the best response time since you are going to use it for gaming.

Not necessarily a fast monitor with low resolution wont look as good as a slower model with higher resolution. You need to find a good correlation between the two and match your Video card to the monitor. You don't want to get a monitor that has a native resolution that your video card does not support. In general you do want a monitor with a fast refresh rate for video games.
