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!

Wow thanks for the speedy response and great explanation. That's basically exactly what I needed to hear to go with the IPS display!

Can we know what IPS monitor you are using?

If you like good colors and viewing angles get some IPS monitor. If you need fast response time get TN but all TN panes have bad viewing angles :)

I need good color reproduction basically. Something which has functions like the XL2420Z but can also be used for video editing.

Finally decided to go with this build:
http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Kiruba/saved/TPxV3C
Will overclock the cpu to a mid range.
What is the airflow difference between HAF X and Storm Trooper? Also give you're feedback on the window edition.
One thing that can be changed are the PSU and the fans. Need quiet fans that can make my system work cooler.
Reason to have chosen Trooper is the easy portability because i will be carrying it from my room to living room once in a month for gaming with friends.
Give your valuable feedback and suggestions pls.

Good build go for it...Both cases are good but haf x doesn't have removable dust filter bot storm trooper have(not sure)..
i just suggest a mid tower case like cooler master 690 iii or nzxt h440 it can handle every thing u throw into it..and save some money for at least 120 gig ssd for boot...
