You can always use get a lower resolution and use more AA.
But if you get the U27 and games start to slow down you can try this trick you can use to boost performance and also get some 'free' antialiasing: that is to run a game just below your native resolution. For example, running a game at 1680x1050 on a 1920x1200 monitor may sound odd at first, but aside from the FPS boost you get from lowering your resolution, the slight blurring from running at a non-native resolution reduces the harshness of jagged lines, courtesy of your monitor's attempts at rescaling the image with interpolation. This is not as good as real antialiasing, but it's worth a try if you need the extra FPS and have no other option.
