I'm going to be getting a monitor very soon and I'm really not sure what response time I should go with. I know what the response time is but how important/great of differences is 1ms to 4ms?

The must have for my monitor is 27", 1440p and 1440hz with g-sync but the 1ms TN panel or 4ms IPS has me stuck between what to choose.

I do a ton of gaming but I also do a lot of animation design and video processing/editing which an IPS display will be spectacular in over a TN.

Thoughts anybody?

IPS is not always better than TN, regarding color quality.
You have to evaluate the individual monitors.

I had 2 very nice HP IPS panels.
My current Asus TN panels blow them away for color, black level, etc.

1ms vs 4ms? If you have bionic eyes, you might notice a difference.

Clearly that is true generally speaking, but G-Sync IPS screens tend to be top quality.

Yes, but too many people focus on the term "IPS", as if it is some sort of magical color quality talisman.

You should go with whichever one looks better to your eyeballs and your wallet.

Well, i'm bringing this topic back from the dead :D
I am in the exact situation. Between Asus PG279Q and Asus PG278QR
One is 1ms but TN, and the other is 4ms but IPS.

I play mostly FPS games (not professional) but i love to play Skyrim, which is a game with beautifull landscapes and graphics if moded.
