Which gaming monitor?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm quite unhappy with my Dell U3014 and I'm planning on returning it soon. Therefor I need a new monitor.

I have been looking at these two:

BenQ27" XL2720T
Dell U2713

What do you guys think of those?

Price is NOT a issue. I simply just want the best gaming experience I can get and since the U3014 disappointed me but I'm looking for a replacement.

I would like a 27" 2560x1440@120hz

If the resolution is not possible then just full HD.

I'll be playing BF3 / 4.

No 'brand-name' manufacturer makes 27" 1440p 120Hz.

I can guarantee you will not like 1080p stretched over 27" like with the XL2720T. However, BenQ's XL2420T is a good choice...but only if you are a super competitive FPS gamer.

Overlord Tempest OC is the closest youll get to an American company that makes 27" 1440p IPS panels that are overclockable. Check out their site - i had one, very good monitor.

Korean panels do not guarantee an over clock of 120 Hz as there are no native 27" 2560x1440@120hz monitors. Most all do OC to 96 Hz refresh which is good for judder free blu-ray playback vs standard monitors that do not require OC to achieve same judder free play back but do not overclock without frame skipping like my U2713HM. Whether you can see the extra 36 Hz refresh rate difference gaming is subjectionaly minor.

Achieving 96 Hz - 120 Hz OC causes colors to darken but there are ICC profiles that can adjust for this. Some left @ 120 Hz OC over time can cause image retention but reverting back to 60 Hz for a little while usually can fix. Some users will only OC during gaming or video playback.
