    No you don't. For gaming, you need low input lag, not refresh times.

    I've personally heard brilliant reviews about the Dell Ultrasharp 2312 as fatcobra stated. For £160 it matches equally priced TN panels and provides much better colours. Unless you're willing to spend £300 on a 120hz Benq 3d ready monitor then I think an IPS panel is the way to go. Realistically, you can't buy your way into being good. Good equipment helps but at the end of the day a large majority is down to the User's ability.
