What I want to know is when I can get my Overlord 120hz god damnit

I have a U2711 and before that I had a TN panel and a 6ms U2312HM. I like gaming more on my U2711, I don't notice any difference in input lag. I would say you need to use one before making such claims.

Also depends on what game you are playing.

You're wrong. Some IPS Dells are great for gaming such as the Dell U2412 which has an ultra low input.

Man I've been looking at this thread for a bit of time now and I'm really wanting to buy one as I can get a pixel perfect one for $380, but I'm worried about how my rig will handle it..

GTX 670 FTW 2GB, i5-3570k, (possibly overclocked to 4.2-4.5)

I've googled around and I've found mixed opinions some pointing to my rig being enough and some pointing to my rig not being enough. But that's for the case of 8x AA which might not be needed on that resolution I hear.

What do you guys think?

Your rig will handle it with ease. Maybe not Battlefield 3 on max settings at 1440p but close to it.

But for desktop, browsing the Internet and office work, it will be as smooth as butter. thumb.gif

Dude a 670 is a beast. I play most games on mine with a gtx 570 on ultra settings. There's very few games that are exceptions. A 670 is a good 30-40% stronger than a 570! You'll be just fine.

With that said, I never run AA though. I actually don't like it. I do use 8x AF typically though.

670 will play battlefield 3 on max but need a bit of overclock on this Res Screen using 1536Mb of Mem on 310 driver

Heh, not sure what you meant there but okay.

Will getting my same card a 4GB version actually help? I read that from 2GB to 4GB there's little to no difference in FPS at 1440p.

The extra RAM is useless until something needs it, then it's vital. The 4GB may be a good choice if you are planning to keep the card for a long time, as games will probably start using a good bit more when the new consoles come out.

Alright got it. Yeah I'll probably just get one of these, since my rig can handle it well. Considering BF3 is one of the most demanding games, and I could run at 1440p like you guys said I'll be fine. I can always turn AA down since at 1440p it isn't needed. (in some games). With all the movement in BF3, I really doubt you can sit there and notice AA.
