Here is some info on goods and bads of various monitor technologies  http://www.tnpanel.com/tn-vs-ips-va/
Long story short: TN wins in fast-paced gaming category such as FPS shooters where there is a lot of rapid movement

                            IPS has better colors but limited to 4-5 Ms responce leading to ghosting but still ok for strategies and MOBA-type games like DOTA or League of Legends

                            VA is better than TN in terms of color reproduction but has ghosting issues of IPS.

 

Have you looked at TN panels?

 

Cheers

Also, dont be shy to post your budget (how much are you planning to spend on the monitor) and people may be able to point you in a right direction in terms of price-performance point

I think the whole ghosting is totally overstated.

 

I remember back when LCD displays first came out, 16ms was the mark to get smooth play in FPS.

 

Thats now dropped to what? 1-2ms?

 

Please.

 

I gamed FPS just fine with no visible ghosting to my eye back in 2003 on my 17" LG 16ms TFT.

 

You are far more likely to be annoyed by the crappy colours of TN than you are by any supposeded ghosting of IPS.

 

The benifit of TN is that they are cheap. Period. In my book. 

The whole ghosting and "input lag" just dosent ring true for me.

IT seems as our displays have got better and better we have had to find ever more metrics to compare them. So far such they are completely removed from actually playing the games.

 

I see so many LCD reviews now spending 90% of the time on colour graphs, input lag , backlight bleed etc etc.

And while some of that definately is a concern, the thing they are NOT doing enough of is just using the dam thing. How well does it work when you are playing an FPS / RTS or browsing the web?

To end all that, I would recommend an IPS display to you.

I have just bought a Dell U2715H and love it!

Prior to that I had 3x Dell 2007FP and before that a BenQ 24" (model escapes me).

All where IPS. All where/are fantastic monitors.

I'd flip a coin. VA and IPS are pretty close for color. VA wins on black levels, IPS wins on intensity.

 

At least, that's what I recall. I am not picky enough to care beyond "no TN panels". :lol:

Most TN's do. I have the Asus PB287q and I have to say it is a beautiful monitor. I eventually will sell the Asus and get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009716
