Is a 1-2 ms monitor that much better for gaming than a 4-5 ms monitor?

a 5ms monitor is fine for gaming, just as long as other specs check out.
The only issue is a monitor that's 1ms always has a TN panel, which is good for gaming because there is very little input lag. So you really need to consider the Panel type as well. IPS monitors are in the 5ms area, but not always. IPS panels do a better job of displaying colors and they won't look washed out. TN panel monitors are not as good as IPS panels when it comes to displaying colors.
Everyone has their own opinion on which one is better. Some people think IPS monitors are the greatest invention since the car. You really need to know the specs and check the monitors out for yourself.
