Is a 5 ms response time bad for gaming?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am considering getting a monitor which has a 5ms response time. At that level would it cause any problems with gaming? And would the difference between it and a 2ms monitor be appreciable?

I'm going to say it varies from person to person, but most likely you won't notice it.

The difference between a 5ms monitor, and a 2ms monitor, is essentially pure marketing and you wouldn't be able to notice it at all.

This. Barely noticable, even to people like myself who can see even the minor bits of micro stutter from a mile away tongue.gif

I'm playing competitive on a 14ms IPS monitor. I'm perfectly fine.
