I want my game to look good and great refresh rate, I see some monitors are iPS nowadays. I know apple uses iPS monitors for years now and they have amazing displays. Is this the reason why? I will be gaming 1920 x 1080. Maybe spend around 300-500

IPS has better color quality and better viewing angles, TN panels have lower input delay and typically higher refresh rates. the latter is generally whats used for "gaming" monitors but it doesnt discount that the former can be used as one as well.

IPS don't have as fast of refresh rates. PLS is another technology too. Do some research

Does someone with a 22" monitor compared to someone with a 27" monitor have an advantage of 5 inches of screen real estate during FPS games if the resolution is the same (1920x1080) because of the higher pixel density, therefore less mouse travel on the screen?

All you have to do is change the DPI of the mouse. I wouldn't go that resolution with a 27" it is horrible IMO and run 2560 x 1440.

I don't think I would go 27" myself. How many FPS is lost in 1440? Compared to 1080.

Wouldn't that depend on your video card? I have a 7990 and am not a heavy gamer so it's kinda moot for me.

I'll have to do some research on that. Thanks.
