I have some general questions in regards to displays and I'm also looking for suggestions.

-based on my rig specs, should I stick with 1920 x 1080/1200? (I'm perfectly fine with that)
-do the 120hz monitors really stress a GPU? can mine handle it?
-how does 1920x1080/1200 look on a 27" monitor?
-I currently average about 55-60 fps in BF3 on High and don't want to turn it down. Does that disqualify 120hz?

Model suggestions needed:
- this will be 90% gaming
- smooth motion trumps picture quality. I assume anything I consider will have a better picture/colors than the Samsung 2232bw (22" 1680x1050) that I'm using now.
- must be matte. no glossy
- 23/24" - 27" I'd like to go to 27", but will definitely consider 23/24" if it's better for gaming. I sit pretty close to the monitor.
- $200-$700. If it's the high end, I'll probably wait for a sale.
- 3D is not important
- this will always be a single screen setup


Thanks in advance for all of your input!!
