I am looking for a new monitor for gaming + photo editing, so Im hoping to grab an IPS panel. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a good IPS monitor that has at least 100hz refresh rate that wont destroy my bank account. I may be fooling myself here, but I was looking to spend around 350 CAD.

The only IPS 100Hz+ panel I can find is:

Slightly over budget, but options are extremely limited.

75Hz, gives you a lot more options

2560x1080, 75Hz, 25":

2560x1080, 75Hz, 32"

Or some basic 1080p, 27" panels:

@Barty1884 Question becomes, in terms of percieved image quality, what would be better a TN panel with 2k (2560x1440-QHD) resolution, or the 1080p IPS panel that you suggested.

It doesn't though. TN, you're looking at fairly limited viewing angles, poor backlighting and maybe some additional motion blur
IPS, generally, has improved colour reproduction & viewing angles.

Resolution adds a totally separate layer of dicsussion.

Perhaps VA are worth considering? A solid balance of TN and IPS - better than TN colour reproduction, higher brightness, better viewing angles. Combine that with a higher refresh rate, and finding one with decent levels of input lag, might be a better solution all-round?
For example, I run the 32" version of this panel - I found it on sale for ~$450 at London Drugs around boxing day, doesn't appear to be available in Canada anymore though.

Solid, but lacks FreeSync/G-Sync. 2560x1440 144Hz VA
Over budget but, for what you want... I think almost anything will be.

What size of monitor are you wanting? Is your photo editing serious enough that color gamut and accuracy of your monitor are important?
No bigger than 27", and the photo-editing is not my profession but a hobby so not super important.
