Default is this good for gaming?

hey guys i red over the spec s for this monitor, it says its response time is 5ms is that a huge deal because im saving 50 bucks so im getting it for 250$ is it well worth it? i also read that it has a gaming mod... would that increase the response time?

monitor: http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=49...nufacture=BenQ

thanks guys.

Link was misdirecting for some reason, edited it for you.

LED backlit, should be a nice monitor. Can't see anything about a "gaming mod"

yeah here the gaming mod: "Thanks to Senseye® Technology and its six proprietary calibration techniques, the BenQ LED monitors now display the truest colors via the five pre-set modes – Standard, Movie, Game, Photo, sRGB. You can get the best viewing quality fitting to your everyday needs. What's more, addition of Eco Mode helps to save on your total power consumption."

its under the battery picture and thanks for fixing the link!

edit: so the 5 ms response time won't be a bad drawback for this monitor?

That's a preset for brightness, contrast and color adjustment. It will affect the image quality, but not the speed of the monitor. And I've gamed on a 5 ms monitor for the last 2 years with no issues.

Anything below 16ms is fine for gaming. I doubt anyone can really tell the difference between a 12ms monitor and a 2ms monitor.

so true. especially since 2ms monitors are GTG, not BTB. BTW there are no IPS panels under 5ms, and they're sought after for gaming by folks who have the cash.
