    Hi,

    So I can't decide which one I should go for.

    I'm stuck between Asus 25" TUF VG259QM and Alienware 25" AW2518HF.


    I usually play FPS games, fortnite, cs:go, cod.

    They both have 240 HZ + and 1 ms gTg, and the price is about the same.

    I don't think there much difference above 144hz. I think its more about how easy its to spot enemies in dark places in your case. TN panels are seem to be better at dark gamma levels, however I might be wrong. So do your research for your needs.

    Watch this video :

    Generally TN panels have faster pixel response times than IPS panels, even if the panels are the same HZ - meaning that during motion, the image will be clearer on the TN panel, thus it will be easier to hit enemies.
    The trade off is ofc that everything else is worse about the TN panels - image quality, colors, viewing angles etc. But if doing well in fps games is what you care about, then a 240 hz TN panel is probably the best choice for you.

    Check reviews like those of Hardware Unboxed (YouTube) that show response time charts for each of the monitors you have mentioned.
