A gaming monitor is a monitor made for gaming. Usually, you get lighter blacks, a warmer tone, faster response time, and in many cases, higher refresh rate. In some instances, you may get additional gaming features, such as an external easy-access control panel, "extra fast" transition modes that overshoot the colour target and cause artifacting in order to ensure minimal transition times.

If you have to ask, probably not. They're usually for people who are really serious about competitive multiplayer.

I will tell you this, the difference between 1080p and 1440 is HUGE. I would rather have 1400 resolution than 1080p at 120hz. I did just get myself a Korean monitor and they are supposed to be able to overclock to 100-120hz, sometimes even higher. I haven't tried it yet though, not sure if I can get 120 fps with 2xGTX660. I will give it a try for the desktop though. 1440p is REAL huge, it can make even older 3d games look real nice if they support the res. Playing Assassin's Creed, the original, and even that looks good at 1440.
