Well for one you would need to link your monitors but if you're looking for a "gamer" monitor for xbox. A lot of gamers use http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007HSKSMI/?tag=googhydr-20&hvadid=43304392164&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=15087866846613303252&hvpone=179.99&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_nd7gvmzje_b
This is by far one of the most popular. It's 24 inches so should be good for what you're looking for.

The size is really up to you. At work I use a 27" as my main monitor with a 22" as my secondary. The resolution is the same on both monitors meaning that everything is larger on the 27". Personally for me the price difference you're looking at isn't worth the 3" increase in size. I have three 24" at home and they are fine.

I agree with Kilroy, I probably couldn't do the price difference for 3 more inches for your particular needs. 24 should be fine.
But please note, your monitors you listed have 5ms response time. Which doesn't seem like much but if you want the best experience gaming wise for your xbox I would take a double check for the benq monitor I listed in the UK. It has a 1ms response time. It's noticeable, trust me. Plus I think they are roughly around the same price? Just search for benq gaming monitor on a UK site.

Provided that the content is at the monitor's native resolution you won't notice the pixels.

Yeah unless you're smashing your face to the screen you aren't going to see pixels lol. Also, if you want to size up a 27" just head over to bestbuy/apple store and check out the 27" imac. That will give you an idea of what to expect.

Where you might notice the difference between 1ms and 5ms is fast action. This is really a personal issue, while I might not notice it, you may and vice versa. I want to say when we were going from CRTs to LCDs 8ms was the lowest speed that was acceptable.
I recently purchased Three HP W2371d 23-inch LED LCD Monitors and they have a 5ms response time. I don't notice it playing World of Warcraft, but did notice it on a movie, but I don't know if the movie source was the cause of the issue.
