Is there a refresh supposed to come out of this monitor?
I think you answered your own question regarding ASUS or Korean. I see you have a GTX 760 which is a great GPU but over clock a monitor to 96 Hz for example and can't keep 96 FPS gaming, your going to have stutter and you won't experience true fluidity when gaming. You'll be fine at default 60 Hz.
Example of BF3 at 2560x1600 ULTRA which is keeping 42 FPS you'll be about 50 FPS at 1440p give or take, which is playable at 60 Hz but will stutter with an over clocked monitor at 96 Hz refresh rate.
Turn off AA which was set to 4xMSAA on below graph, you don't need AA with a 1440p monitor and you'll see 60+ FPS but still no where near the Hz of an over clocked monitor. Your gaming experience will be better with a 60 Hz monitor whichever you decide to get based on your GPU power. FPS must equal or be greater to Hz refresh rate for gaming fluidity. Dip below and you experience stutter.
As for input lag it's not really bad at all in FPS games with motion blur. I mostly game FPS at 1440p coming from a 120 Hz TN panel and it's OK. Sure it's not the same. All other games like RPG, MMO, strategy, even racing have no issues at 1440p.
