Refresh rate of 3ms required?
So you're going to be viewing something at over 300FPS?

8-10ms is enough to eliminate streaking/ghosting, refresh rate is the new Mhz/megapixels for monitors, it's the number they raise/advertise to make people think it's better without knowing what that number actually measures.

just an fyi 5ms is as fast as response time really gets, the 2ms response times are gray to gray response times. manufacturers often use this to trick uneducated people into thinking that their 2ms moniter is better than a 5ms monitor when, a 2ms moniter is exactly the same as a five second monitor.

Get a TN panel. Way better from what I hear.
