An IPS monitor would not be my first chose for gaming.
PROS: Wide viewing angle without darkening
Brighter more accurate colors. They are great for
viewing static images requiring color accuracy,
like photo editing.
CONS: slower response times, resulting in motion blur
Not so good for gaming or video.
Dell makes some really nice IPS monitors like the one youre looking at,
but its gray-to-gray response time of about 7ms is to slow.
A good gaming monitor should have a gray-to-gray response time of about 2ms.
Asus makes some good ones, »www.newegg.com/Product/P ··· 24236117

With a little tweaking it produces a very good and astonishingly bright picture.
