I hadn't even considered IPS panels. I was under the impression that they were bad for gaming.
Im thinking about looking for a reputable shipper on ebay that has a good panel available.

For 27" monitors you have a bunch of choices. But the 120hz panels and the 1440p panels are the most common choices. You can get a regular 60hz 1080p display at 27" too, but that's up to you.

If you can handle the aesthetics of the monitor, I would recommend this site here:

http://www.overlordcomputer.com/category_s/1818.htm

You get a domestic warranty, and you get a guarantee that the panel will be overclockable to some extent at 1440p. He cant guarantee 120hz, but at least some overclocking is guaranteed. Additionally there's pixel perfect versions.

Those would be your best bet, if you want 1440p and a higher refresh rate than 60hz.

Im very interested. I might be going with the non picture perfect ME. It has all the options the OC has, without the OC check. Has more options than the SE.

I think its the best choice. You can end up with PP monitor that hasnt been "check" as PP yet. Also overclockable. Which means if you can get to 80Hz, at 1440p, you'd be doing really well.

Indeed. I'm not sure about the turnaround time after you place your order, but they look to be the most promising "cheap" 1440p monitors. Especially being ones that are overclockable.

I currently have a ASUS 1080 monitor, a 23.5 screen running at 60hz. I want to upgrade to a 27, but a 1080 at 27 might be too pix-elated. That overlord website has some value there, but I don't appreciate having to be charged right away for a preorder, even if I do get a refund if I request it (albeit being banned from ordering ever again). Decisions decisions.

If it can be guaranteed 120hz, I guess it's worth the buy. The new 27 inch ASUS running at 144mhz is already 500USD, but at 1080.

Is there a benefit to x1080 monitors and games? or is 1440 just as good? I know when you hit 1440 you take a big bite out of your fps.

Overlord doesn't guarantee 120hz.
Quote:
At Overlord we hand check every monitor before we ship it out to you. The industry standard for grade A panels is to have at least 70% perfect panels (essentially grade A+ panels). The remaining 30% can have up to 3/3/5 dead, stuck, OR bright pixels and still be considered a grade A panel (and not faulty or returnable as such for repair/replacement.) Our panel checks are to ensure what you pay for is what you get. If you would like to ensure you get a perfect panel then pay the up-charge for the check. However, simply because we provide this option does not mean people that do NOT pay for this check will be receiving panels with pixel issues within spec. We will ship what we have in stock meaning we will not hold onto perfect pixels (if that is all we have) to make an extra $25. It isn't worth ticking you guys off for that amount. The charge is simply to offset the cost of performing these checks. So if you feel like you are fine with a "lottery" system and get what we have and can send, then by all means do not pay for the check. Either way, the panel you receive will be checked for pixel issues, back light bleed, build quality, and power brick load testing.

*Note: Overlord does not guarantee you will be able to hit a specific fresh rate nor does your monitor's warranty cover running your panel at a refresh rate higher than the manufacturer's stated spec of 60hz. All OC versions are capable of rates higher than 60hz and are tested on our test rigs to hit 96hz. Any rates above 60hz are not guaranteed.

I have no problems with my 27in 1080p monitor. At all. Even with 720p or 1080p movies. I'm my keyboard + 2-3 inches from my monitor.

 

I kind of want a 1440p, but I wonder how weird it would be to have a 1440 and a 1080p monitor? I think it'd be better to have 2 1080ps, 2x+ 1440p, or one 1080p - 1440p - 1080p setup. The resolution difference between the two might seem weird.

Korean IPS in terms of gaming
  1. 1440p is HUGE, especially at 27" the pixel density is so high that AA is more of a luxury than a necessity - you can disable it for a huge performance boost (i feel it would counteract the performance lose from from 1920x1080 -> 2560x1080 and then some). At worst you can set it to low and it would match your 1080p performance w/ High AA
  2. No Scalers - Most Korean monitors do not come with scalers/multiple inputs like HDMI which add to input lag - it should be comparable to CRT
  3. 6ms - Faster than Apple Thunderbolt/Dell/HP which is 12ms, i feel its not noticable in games, and when i did a side by side against my 2ms TN display - i personally could not tell any real difference
  4. Eye candy - things just look flat out better, the colors, the resolution, glossy display

Another option is the possibility of creating a 2.35:1 aspect ratio (2560x1080) so your peripheral vision is increased - which may give you a slight advantage in FPS games, not as much as Eyefinity or Surround..but its out there smile.gif

You'd definitely want matching displays, but then again it would be cool to have a 27" 1080p 120hz monitor and a 27" 1440p 60hz display so you can get the best of both worlds. Or just buy an overlord and hope you get lucky.

I've josseled between 1080p 120hz and 1440p 60hz for a couple years now. Currently using two wallmounted acer 120hz 1080p 24" displays and it's treating me well.

Also, I think if you have displays with different resolutions your card(s) wont downclock at idle on the desktop, which may be of some concern.

Thread Starter 
This is all great advice. It will take a while longer till I can narrow the field down some.

I'm really leaning towards the Overlord panels because they are US based, and the options are very reasonable. Im leaning towards the nonPP, ME version. Its got a lot of options, but isn't tested for Hz manipulation. Doesn't mean it isn't able, just not tested. If at most I can squeeze out 120 Hz, Im rockin a 1440p 120Hz monitor. if not, then a 75Hz monitor. Still 1440p. And 75Hz>60Hz. Which is what I currently have.

I think I'm pretty much convinced that while the Korean models are nice, that its a bigger gamble then going US based. I will currently keep this option open but many things would have to either not work out, and fall into place to be my option.

I have been seeing ASUS VG series panels floating around eBay, usually in the $250-450. I know these monitors have a really good reputation for gaming, but price keeps them out of the hands of a lot of people. Besides dead pixels what else should I concern myself with while deciding on an eBay monitor, especially used.

I am really just concentrating on 1 monitor at the moment. Obviously, if I do get more, I'm going to be more inclined to do so if the price of the monitor isn't sky high. Which is what makes the korean brands such an awesome choice. So with that in mind, a VG series Asus monitor, normally is $600. So if I get one, for say $250-300 and can never come across another one for the same price, I'm stuck paying a major premium for multi monitor.
