I know that a Titan is slower, but it stays close to 60FPS in games unless I go crazy with AA so its fine for my needs. smile.gif

ASUS PB278Q 27in PLS LED 2560 x 1440 WQHD monitor has 16.6ms costs like $670 tho

You must have been one of the guys i played on COD:BO2 the other night.

In fact, many power users are also unaware, simply because the panel type is not often advertised in a prominent area. Sometimes the panel type is even absent from the monitor specifications. Many users buy monitors based solely on how much it will lighten their wallets. Price should be a factor, but you should still be aware of the advantages and disadvantages of all the different LCD panel types and be able to identify them before you decide which LCD monitor is best for you.

I used have a single 1440p PLS samsung monitor that was fed by 2 GTX Titans. I was more than capable of running at 120hz if the 1440p monitor was 120hz. I suffered from the worst ghosting and blurring. You dont feel its that bad till you actually try a 120hz monitor. Also in most cases now the Monitor is the longest lasting component you will purchase for your computer. So they are not a bad investment. I would be weary of IPS & PLS panels for FPS. All i remember is turning to shoot someone and i had a trail behind him and it didnt help that he was moving to. A quick way to test this is to take a photo as you are gaming. You will see the pixel blur.

As for ips monitors like LG, AOC etc I have never used them. Hope I was some help.
How can I identify if a monitor is 8-bit or 6-bit? Is the MX239H 8-bit or 6-bit?

The rig with the 660Ti is long gone. The monitor is for the other rig.
Didnt quite get what you were confused about though.

Well your say the Titan is slower! Whats its slower in relation to? A single titan can easily do 120hz in BF3 on Ultra.

Slower than the 7950 crossfire that Stoogie has. Thats what I meant.
and I'm not aiming to run a game from 2011 at a satisfactory frame rate. My target is to run titles at a satisfactory FPS like BF4, Crysis 3 (and 4, when it comes out), GTA V, the third installment of Metro etc. till GM110 comes out.

the only options for 3-5ms input lag or less, is to get the 120/144hz tn panels that hatlesschimp mentioned, so ur stuck with dodgier colour and **** viewing angles, but thats where u have to decide, am i okay with ips and up to 16ms input lag (and 60hz+), or do i not care about picture quality or viewing angles and prefer 3-5ms input lag(120/144hz).

Edit: that blurbusters site hatlesschimp mentioned is worth a look too

My current monitor is rated 5ms (as per the box) and I have no problem playing any game on it. Is there any way to know how much slower 16ms is than 5ms without actually experiencing it in person?

The Box is stating the response time of the pixels. My ASUS VG248QE monitors have a 1ms response time and on the box it claims trace free technology.

Basically motion blur from poor response times is if you spin around whilst playing a FPS you will get a blurriness. Its because the pixels are to slow to keep up with the fast movement of the game.
Lets not forget when not gaming and your in windows the screen will be at 120+ frames per second and that makes for a pleasurable web browsing that is smooth as butter.

If you play only fast paced games I would go with one of the Benq XL2420t or ASUS VG248QE. \
+They were designed for FPS gamers and i can vouch for it that they are brilliant.
-Poor colors - Before the VG248qe i had a Samsung PLS 1440p monitor that is awesome viewing angles and is actually color calibrated by someone in the factory before its packaged. Still images look awesome but in FPS games and Racing games i got smashed. the input lag was around 25fps plus the pixel response on top of that. And in the end I sold it and now the monitors i have are worse than the samsung but do you think i notice it? nope

If you want good colors and only play FPS and racing games every now and then, choosing a IPS/PLS panel is Ok. You will get better colors and better viewing angles.

Get a 120hz monitor if you agree with the following-
I really only play FPS and Racing games.
I want to buy a 1080p screen
I have a card/system that is capable of 120fps at 1080p
Im worried about lag
I think I might be acceptable to motion blur
I would like to have the edge on my opponents
I love playing FPS games
