Do you have to go with a 27" monitor? VG248QE, XL2420T, and XL2420TE are all better (PPI wise) than the XL2720T. It also depends on what kind of gaming you're planning on doing. If you're a big FPS player like I am, a VG248QE, XL2420T, or XL2420TE are all better choices than any Korean PLS monitor because they are TN panels which provide greater motion clarity than PLS/IPS (even OC'd IPS/PLS) and the three monitors I've listed can take advantage of Lightboost in 2D which gives you CRT like motion clarity.

If you're seriously into FPS gaming, don't listen to people who will try to convince you that IPS/PLS is as good as TN, don't settle for an inferior gaming panel. Colors don't matter too much and TN panels can be calibrated to look good, not as good as a PLS/IPS, but good nonetheless.

The BenQ High Performance Gaming XL2720T would be well worth it for gaming. Especially if you are playing FPS games.

Motion blur can really effect your gameplay unlike color accuracy. If you're playing RTS or RPG games then an IPS panel is fine. Lightboost is an amazing feature to have on while gaming in fast paced FPS games though.
