Hey Guys,
I am trying to decide which monitor to get for my gaming PC. The two I have seen that I am most interested in are an Asus 23" 2ms LCD monitor and an Acer 23" 5ms IPS monitor. While gaming and doing other tasks will the 2ms vs 5ms make a huge difference or is it worth it for the IPS display. I'll link the displays I've seen below and hopefully somebody will be able to guide me in the right direction.

Asus VS238H-P 23.0" : http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-vs238hp
Thanks for any help!

Depends on you, if you like colors and viewing on the IPS monitors then only IPS, TN monitors have not so good colors and viewing angles but have faster response time, IPS monitors have slower response time but way better colors and viewing angles, I played on TN monitor with 2ms and currently I have an IPS monitor with 5ms which is awesome for gaming, I didn't notice the difference in response time between TN and IPS but I did notice viewing angles and of course great colors!
