I am thinking about getting a new monitor 27"+. I have been reading some here and there, and have heard good things about IPS panels. I would be using it for gaming/web surfing. I currently have a 22.5" samsung 2253BW specs here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001268 I used to play counterstrike 1.6 uber competitively, but now really just pub around with an occasional scrim here and there with old team mates/friends. I now play more sc2 than any other game and I dont think the response time matters nearly as much in sc2 as a fps like cs 1.6? Really, I just want to know is it worth the extra ~$500 or so for an IPS vs something like: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116441&cm_re=27%22_viewsonic-_-24-116-441-_-Product ? The higher resolutions of the IPS screens are really appealing to me, but the ~8ms response time could result in noticeable ghosting right? Basically I don't care about viewing angles, as this will be used as a dedicated desktop monitor and I will be sitting directly in front of it whenever it is in use. I am pretty new to this stuff, but greatly appreciate any insight you guys might have.
