Then your best bet is to get a yamakasi catleap 120Hz or the Overlord 120Hz monitor

So this would be equivalent then to the Catleaps and Overlords? Of which, how do they stack up against your big brand monitors like the Dell Ultrasharps or Asus or Samsung monitors?

Edit: Personally ASUS, DELL, Samsung, or Viewsonic would be my suggestions in any order.
Is there a large difference in the Color of the Auria versus the big brands you named or are the going to be basically the same?
Also, if it isn't the greatest color, I guess its not the end of the world given I have two mid range Samsungs as it is and I don't plan to be replacing everything all at once.

Also keep and eye on microcenters open box section as here in MN they normally sell the open boxes for 239.00
IIRC I have a displayport or two on my card, could run this as the main with the 1080s on the sides for auxiliary apps and programs. AS for the Open Box, there are two at my MC for 339 and 10 new for 399. As long as return policy is the same, I may grab an Open Box.

Are these any better than the Auria, or basically the same OEM?

You are right about the price my bad it is 399 and open box as 339 (that was way off). You do get the same return policy, I have actually returned stuff after 2 months. Just make sure you create an account on their website, that way you will never need a receipt if making a return.

I have been able to take my Auria to 75 Hz (using the nvidia control panel, not sure what options are on AMD side) but I honestly could not tell the difference.

I have know idea probably the price went up. Just get a normal korean display like a crossover 27q led-p from a good seller and you should be good to go. Or get a Auria and like jassilamba said you can take it to 75Hz if you have a nvidia card. Plus you get one year grantee from microcenter that's a good buy in my books that's if your in US
