I'm looking to purchase a new monitor for my gaming PC. I don't know much about monitors but I'm looking for a 23-24 inch display and based on the research I've done, it will be IPS. I'm on kind of a tight budget for an IPS monitor as I'm hoping to get one for less than $300. About $200 would be ideal.
That BenQ monitor is listed as an A-MVA (look at "Display" > "Panel").
Some of them have that listed, but for the ones that don't specify, you can look at these details to figure out the type:
Viewing Angle - TN panels have 170/160, VA panels usually have 176/176, and IPS panels usually have 178/178
Contrast Ratio - ignore anything 10,000:1 or higher, that's dynamic contrast. VA panels can have up to 3000:1 static contrast, TN panels are usually about 1000:1, and IPS panels generally have 800:1 or less (if the manufacturer is being honest).
Response time - often over-hyped and not well standardized, but anything that lists below 5 ms is probably a TN panel.
