Yeah, here's how I usually browse the web, lol. Just can't handle the page taking up the whole screen.

Pretty damn well. 100+ fps in Serious Sam HD, 60+ fps in BC2, 100+ in UT3. BC2 settings were ultra high with 8xaa. Haven't tried crysis or CoD yet.

This 470 @ 900 is a monster.

i was saving for a 2560x1600 monitor but gave up along the way when i got to $500-600. in this economy getting to $1000 was just too hard.

im not a gamer but if i were a gamer i think there are way better monitors in terms of performance for way cheaper. 30" monitors do not give any real advantage in gaming; they usually have a noticeable lag. real gamers use crt's anyway. that means a crt gamer ($20 monitor) has a real performance advantage over a $1,000 monitor. the $800+ monitors just dont justify their pricetags to me.

not being a gamer having 2 or three 24" monitors you have way more real estate and cheaper than one 30" monitor.
1920x1200 is more than enough for any application full screen. or 1920x1080 for that matter.

im not a movie person and even if i wanted to watch movies i'd rather get a 42" lcd tv with remote for $400-500 than a 30" 2560x1600 monitor. so for $1000 i could get 2 24" 1920x1200 and one 42" large screen tv w/remote?

even if i got a cheap 30" monitor ... $300 cheap.. i'd sell it to make a profit. (or would i?!)






and should anything go wrong with one multi-setup monitor you still have another monitor to work with. and u can switch the other monitors off to save power.


sorry 2560x1600. im not elite.

Were not all trying to go pro in every game we play, some of us play for fun. It is not all about strictly performance. Some of it is about the experience while playing. Obviously with an eyefinity setup your not going to get the best performance, but it is arguably the best experience. That is why people are willing to drop $1000's of dollars on their hardware. Obviously you wouldn't need to spend nearly that much to get 100+ fps in every game, but the experience wouldnt be as enjoyable. Playing in 2560x1600 on a single 30" monitor is the tits, I'm sure adding two more for certain games like flight sim or racing would be even more cool.

The colour depth of the U2711 adds another level to games, and movies, too, especially horror games and darker atmospheres. Only really second to a CRT in that respect, which are bulky and physically small (most of the time).

I play COD, CSS and other games with my team, in tourneys and at LAN's, and kick ass whatever monitor I'm on it seems, input lag is very much over exaggerated in my opinion.

And just chilling with friends on L4D2 or similar, I've never found it a hindrance in the slightest. Without owning a 2560x* monitor, you can't really understand fully.

Also, to the previous comment in the thread, I would quite happily marry my U2711,

i know what you mean when you say that coz i used to use 2048x1536 resolution when ppl were still on 1280x1024. but those 19-20-21" monitors could be easily forced to 2048x.
still, saving $700+ just got too much for me..

LCD monitors have gone down in price exponentially over the last several years, and I expect them to continue to do so. However for the highest of performance, you will always pay a hefty premium.
Do you happen to have a graph of the average 1080p monitor and the price across several years. I would like to see how the prices go down visually.
