1ms and 10ms have barely any differences. Some won't notice.

The only genre that really requires a higher refresh rate would be FPS, you will not see much of a difference if you're sticking to RPG and RTS games.

Not worth it. Latency doesn't really matter when they're as low as 1ms or 10ms. Go get a nice IPS panel. 

The Asus display you linked is GTG (grey to grey) and not black to black or white to white.  Because of this,  it's not really a 1ms display and is more like a 5ms display.

Just get something like the ASUS PB Series PB238Q.

sample and hold blur is around 10ms anyway so anything <10ms is good enough, don't let yourself fool into buying overpriced tn panels  ^_^

If its a 120/144hz screen the the price tag might be justified. IPS is not always the way to go.

looking into that pannel, it is TN and you would be better off getting an IPS screen at that price point. Some of the ones that acer and Lg make are cheap and look good so that is a nice way to go(not that i would ever touch them, glossy bezels can go to helll).
