plus no matter what you do, your gonna have ghosting on a IPS. Like I said before, IPS are not good for fast movement. Anytime you turn your head in a game or even more around a windows with text, the image will blur like a built in motion blur. It much worse on IPS panels then TN because of the extra latency and and lower frame rate(60hz vs 120hz). I can honestly say that my 120hz monitor has made me a better gamer, I wish everyone here could try it because It really does make that much of a difference. Don't listen to people that way it doesnt, they have most likely never used one or have tried it on sub par gaming hardware. your eyes can see more then 60fps, anyone telling you differently if feeding you a bunch of crap. I have tested my fair share of monitors and even while IPS screens look great, nothing can touch 120hz for gaming.

Dell U2711 great for gaming?

Reverse ghosting dont seem to be greatest inconvenient for gaming

I'll consider korean screen like the Yamakasi catleap from 120Hz.net overclocked

U2713hm is better for gaming. Actually, it's a better monitor (than U2711) for almost everyone.

Well, if you boyz wanna do 2560x1440 @ 120Hz gaming, try a Yamakasi Catleap Q270 2B Extreme OC IPS panel (from 120Hz.net). Perfect pixels, 6ms input lag, 32-bit color, v-synced everything high settings in Black OPs II...120fps. Its really amazing having that pixel density firing that fast on a 27" monitor. Overlord computers also makes an overclockable IPS Tempest monitor (same manufacturing souce in South Korea). In BF3 with high settings (motion blur off and 2xMSAA) I average 80fps.

I hope the upcoming GeForce Titan, GTX 780 or the HD8970 will allow me to crank everything in any game on this panel. Gonna definitely need more v-ram to push those pixels in heavily-modded games like Skyrim, the new Metro and Crysis 3... Yee haw!
