This is one topic that will never get properly answered...

One one side, the TN people (cheap and good for gamers)
On the other side, the IPS/PVA ($500+ screens

And the gamers that are looking for the best of both worlds...

I hesitate betwwen a Dell Ultrasharp 24" or a 120Hz TN....

dunno about this one:

Acer 120hz - Linus Tech Tips Blog

Seems nice...
i7 4770K @ 4.0GHz / Corsair H100i / MSI Z97A Gaming 6 / 16GB Kingston Hyper X 1.5V 1600 / MSI GTX1070 FE / Samsung 850 Evo 500gb / Corsair Performance Pro 128GB SSD / Intel 520 120GB SSD / WD Black 640 GB storage / XFX 850 watts Black Edition PSU

Like Delavan says but there is a middle ground now.

The Dell u2311 is 239$. Fast IPS. I prefer 16:10 and have a 500$ IPS but the u2311 or old 2209wa is the best price performance. Most TN dont do better than IPS in games. There is so much marketing in TN its hard to know.
