If you want to play games like Battlefield 3 at 2560x1440 with high AA, then you'll need a 6970 just to get 30fps on a single monitor setup. Here are some gaming benchmark using a 2560x1440 monitor.

Looking at ordering (2) of these monitors, but not for gaming. I want these for the screen size and resolution. I currently have a HD5770 graphics card that shows as not supported on the various vendors ebay pages. I have seen some folks with the various Korean monitors using the HD5770, but not sure if any are running dual monitors. The card does have dual DVI-D outputs, and supports 2560x1600 maximum resolution. Just not sure if it is powerful enough to support dual monitors.

IF I need to upgrade, I'm looking for suggestions on graphics card. I just replaced my motherboard and CPU with a Z77 board and i5-3570K, so it does have PCI-e 3.0, but those cards a super spendy right now. I would want to make the card change worth my while, but not spend a ton of money. Maybe a good PCI-e 2.0 suggestion and go PCI 3.0 down the road.

I see posts about AMD cards having issues with BIOS.......are you not able to boot into the BIOS??? I guess I don't understand what BIOS issue the AMD cards have. Not opposed to going with NVIDIA, especially if it will prevent issues with entering the BIOS.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You can boot into BIOS, but you may not see some of it loading. For example, I have an HD 7870 and cannot see my fast-loading motherboard BIOS boot sequence flash by (ASRock Extreme4 with SSD - boots extremely fast). To enter BIOS, I hold Del while the computer boots, and after a few seconds I enter the BIOS and my screen lights up and shows the image. So you can see the actual BIOS, but you might skip the boot sequence - not that it's pretty to look at anyway. If I don't hold Del or F11 (boot order), the first thing I see is Windows loading screen.

I did see the boot sequence on 9800GT, GTX580 AND HD 4850 and HD 7870, but I changed Catalyst to 12.6 beta and some other things, and one of the changes now causes the lack of visible BIOS boot sequence, but again, it's not a real issue. The BIOS boot sequence still showed up on my computer with GTX 580 and a CrossOver monitor, but it could well be because of many factors, such as different motherboard, longer boot, different drivers, different settings, etc.

Looks like red-cap and ta_planet both claim they check their monitors before shipping.

You can see that here and here.

Is this something new? Aren't "pixel perfect" versions more expensive because of extra checking?

Do they write that to sell the product easier or did they really start checking them all before shipping?

Pixel perfect monitors are more expensive because they have a higher guarantee of being pixel perfect. "Perfect working" means they check that it's not DOA and no obvious issues preventing correct operation. It can still be a perfectly working monitor and have dead and stuck pixels falling within the allowed number of "imperfect pixels".

BigClothCraft also tests his Achievas, even more thoroughly according to his listings, as does AccessoriesWhole.

I'm not sure if Red-cap checked my monitor or not, but my Achieva IPSB does not have any problems like clusters of dead or stuck pixels, backlight bleed problems, or any other issues. It does have some noticeable specs of dust (mostly just one off to the left side), but that's normal as per rules of the auction.

How was communication with him? Did he check them before shipping or were you just lucky to "blindly" get 3 non-faulty ones?
