So... VA panels and gaming. I'm currently looking into upgrading my current TN gaming display in favor of something a bit larger and with better viewing angles and color reproduction. I'd like to get a panel with a high refresh rate and because I can't shell out $600+ for an Asus ROG IPS, 144HZ, 1440P, 'everything but the kitchen sink' display, VA panels caught my eye. They seem to be a great middle of the road option between TN and IPS and everything looked hunky dory until I caught wind of a possible issue with gaming: VA panel ghosting and smearing. My question is, is this still an issue that will forever plague this tech or is it a relic of a bygone development stage?
I have been using one of these for a couple of months now, gaming hard.

Overall I am very happy with it, can't say I have noticed ghosting or smearing to effect gameplay. But it is there compared to my previous (very good) TN.
The only mainstream display technology I have not extensively gamed on is IPS which will be my next purchase to test through.
My current monitor ticks many boxes for me, and is reasonably priced.
