For IPS gaming screens, one of the best 24" screens is the Dell U2412M. Nearly 0 ms input lag, good response time, and pretty good colors generally.

Another nod would go to the Asus VG23AH, which while not 120hz can be overdriven to 72hz using nVidia Control Panel and some parameters easily found on the [H]ard Forum.

Another decent screen IMHO that is TN and true 120hz is the Samsung S23A700D/S23A750D. It is a glossy panel, but has pretty good colors, and since it's a 23" it doesn't suffer as much from the dark top/bright bottom syndrome that the larger TN panels do.

These are as close to your requirements as I can think of outside of the fluke 120hz 27" Catleap screens that were out in March and are now pretty much extinct.

Can the ASUS VG23AH work at 72Hz with a AMD GPU also? I have been looking for an answer to this for many weeks now, and still don't know. Someone with that monitor, can you please test it with an AMD GPU?

I don't have this screen, but a guy named ToastyX on another forum with an [H] in it has a program to modify refresh rates with AMD cards/gpus, and there is also PowerStrip.

I've used my 7970 at 65hz with my Ebay purchased Achieva Shimian without difficulty as well, both with PowerStrip and ToastyX's utility. I could help you with that..

There are A-MVA monitors quoted at 6ms which are slower than the U2412M in pixel response, so I wouldn't consider this a definitive spec. There are also 3ms monitors slower than 5ms monitors, etc....

Yo 10e, you know of any other IPS monitors, besides that Asus and the Dell 2209wa, that can run at 70hz+? Or any non-TN really.

And yeah, powerstrip is what I used too for testing refresh rates with AMD GPUs. Then I followed a guide from googling on making your own monitor driver so everything runs natively at that specific refresh rate without the need of 3rd party software.

Not sure on IPS but as for non-TN my S-PVA will synch at 75Hz though its default is 60.

Thanks for help

In Prad reviews ,in response time section for u2412 it say:

Quote:
The response time is calculated for the black-white transition and the best grey-to-grey change. In addition, the average for our 15 measurement points is given. The data sheet for the DELL model U2412M names a reaction time of eight milliseconds (grey to grey). In our measurements, the fastest shift of grey is determined with a 11.2 milliseconds. Averaging 13.1 milliseconds, the overall response time (back and fourth) for our 15 reading points is not much longer. The differences between light and dark points are therefore low.
and for PA248 :


Quote:
Asus calls it a response time of 6 milliseconds (GtG). After the reset, the overdrive option Trace Free to the value 60 is set so that we measure 14.0 milliseconds for black and white and 9.5 milliseconds for the fastest gray change. Also averaged over all response time (round trip) for our 15 measured values ​​of 11.9 milliseconds for an IPS panel quite short. However, occur in this setting, even to very significant overshoot in the entire brightness range.
so pa 248 has lower response time than u2412 !

But in other review and coustomer reviews U2412 get 5 stars and Pa248 Get 4 star!

How about input lag ?! which one has lowest?!
