Need help chosing an ASUS monitor.

Hello, I currently have an ASUS VG248QE 144hz 24 inch 1080p monitor. I was looking at some 1440p monitors and I saw the ROG swift PG279Q which is a 27"  1440p IPS display at 165 HZ, but I also saw the ROG swift PG278QR, which is a 27" 165 HZ 1ms delay panel which I believe is a TN panel. The current monitor I have has a TN panel and the colors are not amazing. I mostly game but also do some light video editing and content consumption on the side, which monitor do you think would be a good fit for me? I know the IPS panels have a lot better color but they also have more of a delay if I am not mistaken. Would I notice any more of a delay between my current monitor and the one with the IPS panel? 

 

Thanks for your help.

What games do you play? For the most part you won't notice a difference between the input lag unless you're playing some games that require super precision like clone hero or a fighter 

 

I'd personally go with the former

The IPS would be an alrounder in my opinion.

Go with the IPS display, you won't notice the delay.

Yeah, sorry about that, still getting used to the forum. What games would I notice a delay in? I also use the monitor to play xbox one such as halo 5 and the master chief collection.

Like I said in the first reply, you'll only notice it if you're doing or playing something where you need to be very precise very quick like in Clone Hero or fighter games.

IPS panels are not always less responsive than TN panels and other times the MS difference is so small it is not noticeable, the MS quoted in most monitor descriptions/spec is never the real world equivalent but more of a best case scenario. As i recommend to most people use tftcentral (website) to check out these kind of statistics.

I looked up the difference between the two panels on tftcentral, the IPS panel has a 4ms delay vs a 1ms delay on the TN panel, which is the same as my current monitors delay. You don't think I will notice switching from a 1ms panel to a 4ms?

The ASUS VG248QE is not listed on tftcentral so you need to find a model on there with an equivalent panel, also when checking you need to view the Responsiveness section of there testing because it is never as simple as 1ms vs 4ms. They take OD Setting in to account & G2G Average/Rise time average/Fall time average/RTC error average % (and some IPS panels do come out on top).
