Its alot of monitor for alot closer to yuor budget.

well i dont think we have that brand in here. i mean the brands here is limited to asus, benq, dell, lg and samsung if im not mistaken.

I own a Korean x-star 1440p PLS panel that can stably overclock to 96hz.

Recently purchased a ASUS VG248QE monitor to see what all the lightboost hype was all about.

The response time and CRT like minimization of motion blur on the VG248QE is fantastic for first person shooters. I use this monitor for games like Quakelive, Battlefield 4, etc. The downside is coming from the Korean 1440p PLS panel, the colors on the ASUS are so much worse. Calibration helps a bit but its still a TN panel. In the fast paced games I don't mind sacrificing poor color depth for buttery smooth gameplay. But if I am watching a movie or playing something like my heavily modded Skyrim I always switch over to the 1440p PLS panel for the resolution and phenomenal rich colors.

Hope this helps with your decision.

Wow that monitor looks great. PLS panel with high refresh rate is a steal. Found one on eBay for $339.

QNIX QX2710 is great, but is not PWM-free, which might be the cause of some of the eystrain of OP.

Both TFTCentral (list) and BlurBusters (list) have good lists of PWM-free monitors.

Also, a motion blur reducing backlight (e.g. LightBoost, BENQ Blur Reduction, ULMB, Turbo240) for motion blur reduction, can also reduce motion-blur eyestrain (reduced focussing eyestrain during FPS gaming) -- among people who got less eyestrain on 100Hz+ CRT than on LCDs. Sometimes the motion clarity on many LCDs leave a lot to be desired.

You can get the best of both worlds by getting both in the same monitor nowadays. Some of the new 120Hz monitors have both a PWM-free mode (zero flicker), and a blur-free mode (CRT-like strobe mode), toggled by a button.

^^^ This. ^^^
But, now in 2014, there are some newer-than-LightBoost technologies better than LightBoost now:
Other brand names of "lightboost"-like technology:

BENQ Blur Reduction (Version2) -- better than LightBoost, in XL2420Z V2, XL2720Z V2, XL2411Z V2
NVIDIA ULMB -- sequel to LightBoost, also better colors, found in GSYNC monitors
EIZO Turbo240 -- better colors than LightBoost, found in FG2421

any thoughts? ideas? suggestions you can give me?

Well, I'll give you my 2 cents. I have the 27" version of this monitor [MX279H] and I love it. I play FPS mostly with some RTS, a 120+hz would benefit you in fast paced FPS games.
The question would be how much would the difference be, ghosting hasn't been an issue for me but it does feel sluggish after using a 240hz tv. redface.gif

As you said, you're a FPS game with some RTS thrown in, so I'd go with the 120hz. If you go with one I'd like an update on how you like it.
Personally, I'm going to do a 4K build next year, likely 60hz unless 120hz 4K comes within reach without blowing up my wallet. wink.gif

so im guessing that:
120hz = smoother gameplay for FPS, but you sacrifice the color or image quality because of the panel as well as the viewing angle its very limited.
60Hz IPS = quality is good, as well as the colors but the refresh rate is just 60.

correct me if im wrong with this.

well its a hard decision for me honestly haha

I considered some higher end monitors, but I dont do things like photo editing, video editing, or coding.

I use my desktop to play games, and a laptop to configure switches/routers so fatigue is not a concern unlike for those who just sit, in their chairs... endlessly.

Being that I dont sit in front of said monitor for more than a couple hours a day I decided to save my wads of cash for something meaningful, like food and women.

The high refresh is still leaps and bounds over any 60hz monitor in my opinion.

Just try to base your decision off how much youll use it for 1, and how much you are willing to spend to make ( what should be a short period of time ) your day to day experience with it worth it.

Edit: also to note on loss of color saturation, I settled on 96hz for my day to day activities, this semed to be a good balance between color loss and refresh rates.

you can set ANYTHING between 0hz up until you start getting distortion from cable/input limits ( on my monitor this was around 122hz. ).

well, for me i spend most of the time infront of the computer. since i play on my free time then code/develop games. so i can say i would be pretty much stuck with the monitor.
as for the cost, i can say i can spend around $250 to $400 depending on the monitor.

if 120hz would perform well when it comes to playing, browsing, developing games and some movie streaming/viewing i think i can sacrifice some image quality over a higher refresh rate. but i dont know still. still having second thoughts.
