Not too sure what this picture demonstrates. I see nothing but reflections on both. edit:: Maybe some light bleed on left bottom corner of left screen?

Not too sure about the reasoning you posted so I won't pretend to know, but my plasma's blacks are...black.

the 3 matte screens we have in the house are all a grey mess (although I'll take that with a grain of salt as they are budget setups) vs gthe 3 glass screens in the house (iMac, Samsung Plasma, and Shimian IPS LED)

Oh well. Interesting none the less

My picture shows a black screen displayed on both. Does the left display look black? No.

Another example, this picture is only slightly over-exposed. Some high end plasmas have good filters and can display blacks properly in a bright room, but most do not.

I'd come up with actual conclusions in a darkened and controlled room if I were in your shoes.

Also in the first picture how could it have a chance to look black in the picture? It has some white to yellow painted wall reflecting right back into in the shot which throws off our perceived look of it online while the right display has more less-reflective surfaces to handle.

Side note: I tell everyone to never buy a plasma set if its going to be in an uncontrolled lighting environment if they care about the actual picture quality.

This shot is a bit better to see.

I supppose I can see the slight difference. However, not too sure if you can use this one example to characterize every glass vs glossy panel. But for your particular setup, you do have a point.

I'm in the market for a 1440p monitor and the only thing holding me back is the uncertainty that my current system is powerful enough.
Currently system specs:
Mobo: Maximus V Gene
CPU: I5 3570k
GPU: 660ti
Ram: 16gb

I mainly play Skyrim and BF3, would these components be able to handle 2560x1440 resolution?
If not, what would you recommend upgrading to be able to run these games at acceptable framerate?

These monitors cost alot of money, and I have spent a lot of time reviewing the options out there. The only thing holding me back from making the purchase is the question about if I need to completely upgrade compter or not. If I need a complete upgrade of system, I will probably stick to 1080p even though I really don't want to and excited about possibly playing games in higher resolution.

Thanks for any information/advice anyone can give as to what I should do.

660 Ti is plenty for 1440p with no AA, just don't think of running Crysis 3 or Metro Last Light, it's sub-30 fps for this card for those titles. Just don't use heavy amounts of AA as the card's meager 144 GB/s of bandwidth doesn't cut it for AA in general, but who needs AA when you have 1440p?

BF3 can do 40-50 FPS on 1440p with no MSAA last time i used it. Before i sold it to get a Titan, that is.

Your going to have to turn down settings on some games and others not so much but it's doable. Below is two graphs -Metro Last Night and Crysis 3- graphs.

Toughest games you'll see (Click to show)
Drop those settings to medium perhaps low with no AA. You can always run Nvidia Optimize to figure out what settings are best for your games to your set up.

Games like BF3 and I'm going on a limb but gathering BF4 will be very close in comparison.

Games you play most (Click to show)

Your 660Ti will fall between the GTX 580 and GTX 670. Just underneath the GTX 670 performance.

Thanks for your feedback, happy to hear I don't need to immediately upgrade my system (plan to in near future, just not now) to be able to run at 1440p. I don't mind lowering some settings and even disabling AA altogether for now until I upgrade my computer. I just wanted to make sure that I could use this monitor for the games I play out of the box, didn't want it sitting around for couple months which is when I plan on getting new components for computer.

One last question, I noticed the difference between 1080p and 1440p in price is $300+ dollars between the monitors I was comparing, PB278Q (1440p) and the VS278Q-P (1080p)...
Is the price difference worth it for higher resolution? I ask because most here probably made the jump from 1080p to 1440p and can give solid opinion since you've use both for comparison.

Thanks again for current feedback - and any more that can help me in my decision making.
(sorry if this is wrong place to post these types of questions, I figured asking users who actually own these monitors was best place which is why I posted here for advice)

90% sure making the purchase this week, leaving 10% open in case some 1440p owners think the cost isn't worth the difference from 1080p...
