and the alienware one is pretty good as well from what i've heard

Asus has had many issues with their Asus VG236H 23" and their 27" version is to big for 1920x1080 with a pixel pitch 0.311mm! I'm looking for a 23-24" with 120Hz at 1920x1080 with a pixel pitch of around .25 - .27.

I have the ASUS VG278H monitor. It's 120 Hz is one of the two best 27" monitors out on the market.

2ms seek time is trace free. No ghosting in 2D or 3D. I've been lucky with no dead pixels and no black light bleeding. Reviews are actually very good on it from Hardware Heaven, Benchmark Reviews, and Hot Hardware.

Coming from a 23" Alienware AW2310 the new light boost tech on Nvidia 2 is a huge step forward with 3D Vision. Nvidia 3D was superior before and they took another step even further with it.

My Alienware monitor was also a good monitor 2D or 3D for 23". Im finding the extra 4" and light boost was a very nice upgrade indeed.

Everyone does have different presprective on what is most important to them. Unfortunately there is no 120 Hz IPS monitors out nor anytime in the future as of yet and if it did the price tag would be astronomical.

Yes, its worth it...I have a GTX 570 w/ a 120hz monitor... noticeably smoother in gaming. But it's not the greatest thing since slice bread (like some people like to claim)...it's not mind blowing or anything. But still very good - I get like 40 to 90 fps in BF3 depending on map/area. 120hz does make BF3 "look"/ "feel" better compared to my 60hz..even when I am getting less than 60fps. 120hz is def. worth it imho...as long as you got cash and really want the best of best for gaming.

Glossy Screen: Samsung 750D/700D
Matted Screen: BenQ XL2420

I have sli 570hd's 2560mb and a samsung s27a750d. Unfortunatly right after i built the system i had to leave for 3 months for work. I got a week in of testing out the 120hz. It is nice and i found it much easier on the eyes for long periods of playing games or browsing. The glossy panel is a personal preference of mine also. To me the colors especially lighter colors and whites just look so much better when compared to aniti glare coated monitor. I also play in a darker room where reflections aren't much of an issue on the glossy panel.

Now for the bad side of this setup from my monitor choice. Any nvidia drivers later than 285.62(i think those ones) do not work with displayport and the s27a750d and hdmi is capped at 60hz. Apparently samsung advertises this monitor as displayport 1.2 and it is actually 1.1 causing driver issues, go figure lol. Something that will hopefully be fixed with drivers by the time I get back home from work.

BenQ, alienware and asus are your best bets for 120hz.

I know the benq XL2420T and alienware one have lightboost for 3d vision so theyre probably the two best to get.
