I am in the market to get a new monitor. I play primarily RTS games. Most of the information I have found on the web concerning what you want in a gaming monitor pertains to FPS, which I rarely ever play. I know TN panels with high refresh rates and low response times are ideal for FPS, but what about RTS gaming? I would appreciate recommendations.

Right now, I am looking at ASUS VG248QE, but I am not sure if that would be overkill for RTS games and if instead I should put the money into a larger 27" monitor, maybe an IPS panel.

I am looking to pay less than $300

My rig specs are as follows:

Intel i7-4700k
Nvidia GTX 770
8gb RAM
Asus Maximus IV Hero (MB)

Thank you for your input!

Yeah a 60Hz monitor would be perfect for an RTS (Refresh rates not important), the thing that would be important is the resolution. A 1440p monitor would be ideal
