TBH I wouldn't worry too much about whether you get an IPS. VA is way to slow for gaming, and TN colour reproduction is fine for everyday use. It's only a problem really for graphics pros, who have to have a deadly accurate colour representation on the screen for their jobs.
When you're gaming, you're not going to notice if the colour is egg white when it was meant to be light egg white
"As a result of all this hardship, dirt, thirst, and wombats, you would expect Australians to be a sour lot. Instead, they are genial, jolly, cheerful, and always willing to share a kind word with a stranger, unless they are an American." -- Douglas Adams
