for gaming, tn and ips are very similar. tn has better response time while the ips is more color vibrant and has better viewing angle.

overall, the ASUS ips one is much much better.

your monitor is small and your card way over powers it.... what do you think ?................

anyways, if you are going to buy a monitor at this point in time why not invest in a 120Hz monitor so you can also take advantage of 3d ?

i do but its only has a VGA port and i don't have anymore patients. As soon as i see a sale on the monitor i will buy it

and when i asked if i will experience lag on the monitor it was bacause i read some where that ips monitors have high response time which means there slower then Tn panel

if you get a monitor with 2-3ms response times you won't have those problems.

vga does suck but that's a lame excuse. you must want a new monitor bad......... but i would still hang on for a while if it were me.

well to be honest, you will need to have at least a gtx670 sli setup in order to take full advantage of a 120hz monitor. And I am not talking about 3d here, imo the biggest advantage of a 120hz monitor is that it allows your eyes to perceive 120fps instead of 60fps. So when you run games with 100-120+ fps, your eyes feel this sense of smoothness thats really hard to describe, its like a surreal experience. However, in order to get that experience, you need to have enough horse power. Your single gtx 670 will own any game with -60fps but to reach that 100-120fps level in games like battlefield3/crysis2, you will need dual 670s. Same goes for 3d vision, you will have to turn off some eye candies if you want to run certain games in 3d on a single gtx670 rig. So I say, if your planning to add a second gtx670 to your system, then by all means save up for a 120hz monitor. Otherwise, get a quality 60hz monitor. The Asus one would be really good- but at least try to get a 23'' monitor, 21.5'' is tad too small.
