I’m starting to take fighting games more seriously. So in an earnest attempt to do so I’ve finally decided to get a monitor which would replace my 720p Plasma from 2008. I’m looking for something that has little to no input lag or motion blur (ghosting), and can output at 1080p. This Monitor will also be primarily used for console gaming.
While researching monitors I’ve ran into a lot of unanswered questions. Like what is considered the highest or lowest amount of acceptable input lag? e.g. is 13ms of input lag too high? Is 9ms not low enough? I know the lower the input lag the better. But there’s nothing out there saying what to really aim for or what’s acceptable for competitive fighting games.
I’d also like to know whether or not the Refresh Rate or Response Time matters for consoles that only do 60 FPS. I’ve heard that a higher refresh rate and response time makes the picture smoother regardless of the frames that are being output by the console. But again, there’s no real explanation as to why. So I can only assume.
Nothing is clearly explained enough to get a good idea of what monitor is right for me and what I should be looking for. I’ve spent a few hours now googling whatever I can to get a good Idea of what to look for. But I’m still as lost as I was when I first started. I’m really hoping the fine people here can help steer me in the right direction. I never thought something like this would be so stressful and hard to research.
Below is a monitor that I’ve found that looks good to me. But again I’m lost as to whether or not this is the right monitor for what I need.
 Refresh Rate: 144 HZ
 Response Time - 1m
[*] Input lag - 13ms (source)
