Should post in the LCD section but since you helpfully provided a link to your set:


Response time 14ms is time required for a pixel to change from black -then to another color - then black again or BTB

Response time 5ms GTG is the time required for a pixel to change from Gray - another color- Gray again.

Most Manufacturers post GTG so you won't think it is slow.


IPS panels generally have great color and slower response times than TN panels so Gamers want the "faster" panel but fastest is more like 1-3ms (manufacturer will brag about it in ad)

This doesn't mean this monitor is terrible for gaming only that it is not ideal for FPS or fast paced games. For RPG type games where you can get by running the game at 30fps it will be beautiful, more so than the TN panel.

If you play Die Hard, Dead Serious Multiplayer or Competition (do they still do that?) then you may want the previously mentioned 1-3ms GTG Response Time monitors. For Single Player response time is not that important but 5ms GTG is about the slowest I'd spend money on.
