5ms latency VS. 2ms(gtg)

I am looking for a new monitor for my gaming rig. I am a bit of a videophile so I want to get something that looks good and has no latency/ghosting issues.

My current monitor is a 19" samsung that I bought maybe 3 or 4 years ago that is rated for 2ms. That has been a great gaming monitor, but in some circumstances I can see faint ghosting.

I am looking at some of the bigger widescreen monitors (24"and bigger).

It seems that the lowest latencies are either 5ms or 2ms grey-to-grey.. Is there any big difference? Do you guys think 5ms will be good enough?

  1. Ghosting is something that cannot be gotten rid of entirely IMO, whether or not it is visible is subjective. Personally I don't see it on my own one unless I look closely at the mouse pointer. It is rated 12ms Black to black

    I would ignore gtg and look for reviews or at the least black white black response times.

    Also, I am unsure what you mean by videophile, you are using a TN based LCD and those are crap visually.
  2. What should I be looking for besides TN?
  3. Quality wise it usually is said to go TN - PVA - IPS.

    Price usually steadily increases in line as well.

    However, the fastest monitors will be TN based.
