That is a preference and mostly determined by the monitors application and by user sensibility. (they might get nauseous by the smoothness of higher refresh rates)
panels have better response times. Good for professional or competitive gaming but have poor color and poor viewing angles. Because they're faster most high refresh rate panels are TN panels. Such as the Asus VG series or the BenQ XL and RL series.
have real-to-life color gamuts but poor response times. Good for the graphics designer, video editor or anyone into multimedia or web design.
While it is possible to find IPS panels that are high refresh, low response, and real-to-life colors but they get very
-IPS 4ms response, 144hz, 27" ~650$ o.o ... I can only drool lol
Average users can get away with ~6ms response time without feeling the delay. But if you play competitive and you have a very honed sense for these things you will want to get a faster panel.
I can speak from the experience of feeling it. I have over 2500 hours in CS:GO, currently an LEM, and about 1k of those hours were on a 6ms/60hz panel.. the other 1.5k hours were on the Asus VG series panel and WOW.. the 144hz at 1ms response is phenominal. At lans people drool over it when I let them try it out and when I try theirs - I cant stand it.
