If I had that kind of money for a monitor, personally I'd get the ASUS PB278Q, it's a 1440p monitor that should be great for playing games and watching movies.

The best gaming monitor in your price range is the Qnix QX2710. 27" 1440p 120Hz PLS for ~$300.

How you may ask? Qnix QX2710 (Pixel Perfect )


It's a PLS panel (which is just Samsung's version of IPS), though the pixels are different from IPS monitors. Some also think PLS has better colors than IPS.

From what I've seen most people easily hit 110Hz, if not 120Hz, as long as you don't have a garbage graphics card.

The bezel is of reasonable size, too bad it's glossy though, I'll be painting mine matte black. Also the anti-glare coating on the monitor is quite light and doesn't degrade the picture quality. Sooo much better than glossy if you ask me, and many others will agree.

Mine came with 1 dead pixel and 1 stuck pixel (likely the stuck pixel can be fixed), I ain't even mad though...the pixels are so god damn small it's quite hard to notice it. I don't have any backlight bleed on mine, some people have experienced bleed, but there is an easy fix.

The downside of the monitor is that the casing is cheap, which ain't that big of a deal to me. Although it is kind of annoying that you have to remove the back panel to take off the stem of the mount (if you want to put this monitor on a monitor stand with arms).

All in all, I'm really happy with mine. Definitely recommend it if you're in the market for basically the best bang for the buck/performance monitor you can buy right now. Also, the shipping from South Korea is so stupidly fast...48 hours, how is that possible? If you're worried about a warranty or it dying you can get a warranty from Square Trade for $50 for 3 year coverage.

Feel free to read user's opinions in the huge Overclock.net threads:
- Original Thread
- Overclock Results
- Monitor Club w/ Optimization Guides

TL;DR
Pros:
-27"
-1440p
-overclockable to 120Hz
-amazing colors (click here to see the out of the box colors for yourself - note the bezels aren't that thin on stock Qnix's)
-cheap

Cons:
-cheap casing
-possible backlight bleed (though you can fix on your own)
- possibility that you will have 0-2 dead pixels (not a big deal when there are 3.6 million other pixels on screen)
-cheap monitor stand

+1 due to the overclocking ability. Other than that though i would go for a 1440p Dell.

what do you guys say about Iiyama "ProLite" XB2776QS-B1?

I will probably buy DELL U2713HM so I hope that is ok!

Oh can someone tell me what hz I get on Dell?

how much worse is U2713HM for fps gaming then 120hz monitors?

best regards!


oh...I really doubt between Dell U2713HM and Asus PB278Q....????

In desk top use you will see cursor frame skipping with any refresh rate over clock and honestly gains are unnoticeable in my opinion when we're talking about fractions of a second difference for smoothness.

Gaming however I've got mine I will over clock refresh rate to 90 Hz. I feel I'm getting more fluid motion. Gaming example:
