It's not really worth worrying too much about response time. I'd be more worried about input lag. Pretty much just look up whatever monitor you might be interested in and see what people have to say about it for gaming.

Generally 6-8ms is perfectly fine, but not the best. Under 6 is the best, but most people probably can't tell the difference. 8ms is perfectly fine. FYI I would go with one of these Korean monitors, which are all the rage right now:

Response time is about as useful as dynamic contrast for determining how good a display is.

I thought Qnix was all the rage?

Take the response time and triple it, that's the average response time you should expect. Over 20ms is noticeable to the eyes.

Input lag is something that can't be measured at the moment. Different equipment in the monitor controls that. The only indicator of good equipment is quality parts, this typically does not include TN panels.

Most comments about monitors are from confused people not understanding what exactly they are talking about.

Expensive monitors that are not marked up because of a name brand and are not a TN panel monitor, tend to be better at managing input lag.
'The Intel i7-3770 if you're rich, the i5 2500K, i53570 or i53570k if you're doing okay, the AMD A10-5800K or i3 if you're just about hanging in there.'

I'm pretty sure those Korean monitors have less input lag than big brand name parts because the Korean monitors usually just have one input and virtually no options for image processing. So the Qnix might be a good choice.

Sorry, but this is false. Input lag varies widely between monitors with the same listed response time, and it certainly is measurable. Unless you'd like to inform prad why their tests are BS. And the fastest responding monitors on the market, the 120+Hz crew, are all TN.

Response time is a pointless spec considering there is not a standardized way of testing it.
