The only 27" worth getting is the u2711 but you'll have to up your budget to at least $800 to get one.

The 2 best imo are the Dell 2711 and upcoming samsung syncmaster Ta950.
But for that price I suggest one of these

I find it hard to believe you can get a U2711 for $500.

My old one before I grabbed two Dell U3011's cost me $550.

I found 25% off coupon and easy Dell U2711. Sure it's $50 more but it's $50 well spent.

It feels so nice to have the stronger dollar for a change

I use a ViewSonic 27" and I bought it for $250. It's slim, adjustable, rich in color and has an ultra response time at 1ms.. there's absolutely NO input delay, ever. It's also full HD 1080p with a HDMI port

http://www.viewsonic.com/products/de...s/vx2739wm.htm

I bought it from J&R for $250.. The website has it at $390 though..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116441
It's listed for $329.99 at newegg

$299.99 new and $232 refurbished

Both websites with very high customer ratings. 4.5 out of 5 with 80 plus reviews on each website

I highly recommend it. Or go with the over priced Dell.. especially if you want the ridiculous resolution of 2560*1400 @ 16:9 lol

and btw, there's a 30ms delay in the dell whereas the ViewSonic had no delay in the bit-tech input lag test (Lagom image test).

The Viewsonic:

Input lag is also non existent standing side by side with our control monitor - another plus for gamers
No delay

Dell U2711:

This was ever so slightly noticeable in fast paced games, so if twitch-gaming is your thing, you might want to look elsewhere.
30 ms delay

Just thought I'd pop back and say the resolution of the Dell U2711 is actually 2560x1440 @ 16:9.

And the only reason I swapped it for two Dell U3011's is because I wanted something absolutely overkill and I got a really, really good deal on them

EDIT:

Mate you're comparing a TN Panel to a H-IPS panel. The IPS panel is quality beyond measure. You get better viewing angles, better picture quality, better resolution, better everything, which is also backed by Dell's great customer service (Well for me anyway) and three year warranty. I have personally used the Dell U2711 in gaming BC2, etc. etc. and I haven't noticed any lag. Only when the server gets a bit choppy but you can't blame a monitor for that.

EDIT 2: Also dezmick you can grab a refurbished Dell U2711 for quite cheap as well. I know it may end up being a little out of your price range depending on the road you take but trust me you'll never go back to a TN panel if you do. The quality is just jaw dropping.
