I really want a new monitor.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
But the only IPS monitor in my price range comes in 2 weeks.

Should I wait for it or get a TN monitor with faster response time and 1 inch bigger screen?

Monitor will be used mainly for gaming and movies when tv is occupied by annoying brother with his stupid habit of playing any crap game available on PS3.

I would wait for the ips much better colours etc,
but if you just gaming and watching films the faster response time might be helpfull.
personally ips>most screens.

Just because It's an IPS doesn't mean it can't play games.. theres no ghosting or anything like that. Just get yourself a nice IPS and enjoy other stuff other than just gaming which you can do with the IPS anyway

Or buy my pva panel benq 24" monitor.

Seriously though, I'd wait until you can get an IPS. Most definitely better for watching movies with awesome quality and viewing angles FTW.
