What is an IPS monitor?

IPS (In-plane switching) is a screen technology used for liquid crystal displays (LCDs). It was designed to solve the main limitations of the twisted nematic field effect (TN) matrix LCDs in the late 1980s. These limitations included strong viewing angle dependence and low-quality color reproduction.

So does that mean its a feature that helps screen resolution? And if so, is it good for gaming?

Also, is this a good monitor for gaming if I'm trying to build an inexpensive gaming computer:

AOC E2260SWDN

I know its not IPS, because it said so in the description. But what do you think?

IPS is Inter Plane Switching. Its my preferred panel type. It allows for great viewing angles and is pretty great in my opinion.

A lot of gamers on a budget will go with a TN panel. For more advice consult this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNc2fKuVnGU

Generally with gaming screens, getting a higher Mhz rate will help out. My colleague uses a 144Mhz IPS display and never shuts up about it. I think he might marry it soon.

IPS - graphics quality.
TN - faster response time.
