Dunno about that Acer. It's a TFT panel. Don't really care for 3D either. I took a look at the Catleap monitors and I'm intrigued. I'm debating whether or not I should get one.

The three things that concern me are:

1) Premature failure/warranty (it would suck having to send this back to Korea lol)
2) Ghosting
3) Performance loss at 2560x1440 (can't imagine lower resolutions looking pretty on such a big monitor)

Buy from accessorieswhole on ebay if you do, they have the best customer service out of all the dealers (shipping back costs, replacement parts, etc), that or get warranty on it if available
Ghosting is subjective imho, not too apparent on my Crossovers or my Apple Cinema display
Performance with SLI 580s in your sig rig should do just fine, SLI 670s both stock and actual OC max out just about everything aside from Metro 2033 but that's a different monster in it of itself (Don't do 1080p @ 27 inches just my thought)

The only thing I would be worried about is the fact that you have 1.5GB or vRam. I already use 1.2gb in Arma 2 and 1.3-1.5 GB in BF3 at 1080p so you would be running out of vRam for sure in some games at 1440p.

Just something to think about.

I'm on my 31st GPU!

Desktop GPUs: ATi Rage -> ATi Rage 128 -> VooDoo 2 -> Geforce 2MX -> Geforce 3 -> ATi 9200 -> ATi 9800 Pro -> Geforce 6600 GT -> Geforce 6800 GT -> Geforce 7800 GT -> ATi 1900 XTX -> nVidia 8800 GTX -> nVidia GTX 275 -> ATi 5870 -> AMD 6950 Unlocked -> AMD 7950 -> nVidia 1070 Ti
Laptop GPUs: ATi 9200m -> nVidia 9800m GS -> ATi 3870mx2 -> GTX 870m -> GTX 970m -> GTX 980m
Netbook GPUs: nVidia 9200 ion -> AMD 6310
Secondary Rig GPUs: nVidia 8800 GTS -> nVidia GTX 260 -> ATi 5870 -> AMD 6950 -> AMD 6970
Smart Phones: Samsung Galaxy S -> HTC Evo 3D -> Samsung Galaxy Nexus -> LG Nexus 5 -> Huawei Nexus 6P
Tablets: Asus Nexus 7 2012 -> Asus Nexus 7 2013

Keep AA down to x2 or off, you won't need it at the resolution as much, will keep your frames up and vram down, by a lot

specs look legit on paper...










but [neg] reviews make me cringe. i was like someone to go ahead and buy this monitor and whoever buys it tells us of his experience.

I don't ever go by what the specs are for monitors; I always go by the reviews. But even then, I'm never really certain because a lot of people are not as fussy as me when it comes to fidelity.
