Hey everyone, i am looking for advice for what monitor to purchase for my pc that i will be building very soon, just need a few more parts.

I am currently looking at these monitors:

http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=MONSSM2452&name... - $270.25 (tn)

http://www.playtech.co.nz/afawcs0139235/CATID=507/ID=15... - $249.00 (tn)

http://www.playtech.co.nz/afawcs0139235/CATID=507/ID=15... - $279.00 (tn)

http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentvie... - $279.00 (ips)

I was wondering what monitor would be the best, as i play mostly fps's, a lower response time is obviously best, but the 23 inch Asus has an IPS display, and only has a 5ms response time compared to 2ms on the rest, but according to reviews it is barely noticeable and there is no ghosting.

I am also open to suggestions on monitors :) 

Note that i live in New Zealand, which is why the prices are so high, and some monitors are not available :) 

Thanks for any help ! :D

Only get an IPS if you do serious graphic, video, or photo work. For gaming you'll want a typical panel with a 2ms or 1ms response time
Go with the $250 panel you listed if you can wait for stock, if not here's a similar AOC panel for $10 more
