Monitor causing shadowing.

When I play games, I find that fast paced action causes shadowing or ghosting. I'm not sure what it's called, but the image of what ever was there remains subtly for at the most, half a second. This beginning to annoy me and was wondering if anyone knows of a fix or a better monitor?

In the case of a better monitor, would an IPS have less of this ghosting? Budget is $350 NZD.

My monitor is: 22" AOC e2260Swdn Widescreen LED /1080p with DVI-D
GPU: GTX 670 WF3 OC
If needed,
CPU: 3570K
MOBO: GA Z77X D3H
OS: Windows 8

Thanks for your time and help.

Should be 5ms response time on that screen...

What happens if you plug say a laptop into the screen?

Same thing, although I had to use VGA instead of DVI. I think it might be the monitor causing this.

IPS is unlikely to be any better, though colour reproduction and viewing angles are better.

Is it significantly worse than on the laptop's display?

Just as bad. It seems like the pixels take half a sec to brighten from being dark, but it is less visible the other way round.

I think I'll just put up with it for now. I don't know if you will find this interesting or not, but I used OBS to record the output and the ghosting is visible when played back as a video on my home laptop, desktop, brothers desktop and work laptop. I am now thinking it might just be me.
