As for anime playback:
Lazy option: install http://haruhichan.com/forum/showthread.php?7545-KCP-Kawaii-Codec-Pack
Works great, just choose highest and then disable the options under "trade quality for performance" and enable smooth motion.

Better option: http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=516729
A few of the components have been upgraded recently (notably madvr). Install them yourself and you get the newer versions.

Either way, enable smooth motion and disable all options under "trade quality for performance" in madvr settings.

Try out the stuff I mentioned, then see how much better SVP is. I'd be very interested to hear your results.
Hulustar is very reputable. I emailed him about his fantastic event monitors - 0 to 2 defective pixels - and he said that there are no defects near center of the screen. If they are still available then these are good value, and the ones I'd reccomend on price vs risk.

I followed that guide, my video freezes when I switch screens, any idea? (When I move the video from one monitor to the next)

Madvr does not work on monitors in portrait. Also if one screen is on a given GPU and the other is on the motherboard or another GPU it can give you problems.

Well I don't watch videos on my portrait monitor. That seems dumb though, I don't see why screen orientation should make a difference. Maybe because it's not full screen?

Its one videocard, and not sure what you mean by portrait, my monitors are set normally.

How much would you guys recommend the Qnix monitor for strictly gaming on a 7950?

I don't know if its worth the extra $100. I can't find any good comparison videos for 1080 and 1440 when gaming.

What kind's of games are you playing? I was running x-fired 7870's and would get about 70 fps in bioshock infinite. I know a single 7950 is a pretty good gpu.

Portrait means the monitors are turned 90 degrees. I have never had a dual monitor setup so I'm not sure what the problem is. If the monitors are the same I can only assume there's a bug somewhere that causes it to glitch. Otherwise madvr could get confused if resolution changes.

Checking through reviews to see framerates off a single 7950, as long as you don't go for lots of AA and ultra settings you should get 30+ fps.
I'm not a gamer myself, but apparently the higher pixel density means you need much less AA. You should also consider lightboost monitors which have much less blur, and whether the extra quality of IPS color is worth it over TN.

If you're going IPS/PLS I think most would recommend the qnix, but it's more complicated if lightboost/very low lag means much to you.

My second option is going to be a 23" 1080 IPS Monitor.

I'll be playing games like GW2 and LoL. Not extremely graphic intensive.

I'm sure my card can handle it.. But how much better does the 1440 look compared to something I mentioned above. Is it worth the extra $100?

Another potential issue is madvr does not support old mpeg2 content and it will only show a green or black screen. You also might want to check your LAV filter settings. Worst comes to worst just start deductive troubleshooting. Try using a different player to make sure it is MPC-HC. Try using EVR without the LAV filters to make sure it is madvr or the LAV filters doing it. There is a LOT of variables here that could be causing it.

In that case you should be able to get very good framerates off your card.

Think of it this way: for $200 the IPS screen you get will not be the best. I was looking round for a cheap one and they all seem to have very aggressive AG coating, which leads to graininess. Some people care about this more than others. The matte PLS monitors are much lighter.
This PLS supposedly has better blacks and has 1.8 times more pixels. This means you see nearly twice as much, or the same in much better detail, it looks sharper due to tighter pixel pitch, and with less AA needed you get higher framerates. It also overclocks, though how much difference this will make to you I do not know since I don't know if you can exceed 60fps.
The only thing it does not have is a good warranty.

If you get a good Qnix it should undoubtedly be better, and I haven't heard many reports of these failing, but ultimately you have to decide if you game enough to justify the extra $100.
