Windows 7: Bought a new monitor....questions regarding HDMI vs DVI and ext.P/S

windows 7 professional

I do game but only casually, and this monitor seems fine for that. Nothing i noticed except a little better look probably due to my last one being on it's way out. This one is 5ms and my old one 2ms. But i don't see any issues due to the slower response. I read somewhere you won't notice anything till the response is much higher then 5, i think they said 12 or 15ms if i recall.

The response time is only a factor when you are looking at fast motion on a monitor. The lower the response time, the less blur there is. Chances are that the average human cannot detect the difference between 2 ms and 5 ms anyway.
