Can you see the difference between 2ms and 5ms response times?

In some games, yes. Otherwise for desktop use, not really...

My question would be can you tell the difference using the systems separately or only *really* when they are together. It's like CYMK colour and RGB colour, can't really tell them apart if you were given an image and asked is this CYMK but together you can.

If you sat down in front of a 5ms response monitor would you be able to tell?

Sorry to hijack the OP somewhat, I was just curious (and I'm sure DeSade would be too)

No hijack, its a valid extension of my question.

Basically I want to know if I was to replace my 2ms monitors with 5ms monitors would I notice?

Not for anything but gaming, no, I don't believe most people would. Even then, only if I sat them down side-by-side.

Only in very specific situations, and only if you're especially sensitive to light transitions.

Reason I am thinking along these lines is although the 2ms ones are great, I was contemplating buying 3 new boarderless monitors for a surround setup
