Hey everyone,

I can get a deal on a TVera 1440p monitor for $365 new, is this a fairly good deal, and a good monitor too?

The second thing is, if I did get this monitor, would it be a smarter idea to sell my two smaller 900p 20" monitors and just use the 1440p monitor, or keep one/both of them with the 1440p monitor? Also, I would game a fair amount with this display, and I have a GTX 670 2 GB, which I'm thinking could possibly be not enough VRAM for a 1440p display.

It's just the same as all the other Korean 1440p monitors so it's a good panel however it may come with dead pixels, yellowing etc. The stands are normally a bit flimsy too.
Whether to keep your other monitors is up to you, if you would like the extra work space then keep them, if not sell them.
2GB of vram is enough for a 1440p monitor, no need to change your graphics card

Not sure if that's it, but the model number for it is TS-27WQHDIPS.

Well the store I am buying it from has a 1 week return no questions asked, except with monitors you need to pay $10 or something so they can re-pack it and sell it used.

Wonder if I could use an Eyefinity type thing with either my 670 or 7850, both 2 GB models. Have 1 fat 1440p in the middle and 2 900p on the sides.

Yeah those are "A-" panels. Those are always a bit of a gamble, but several people have been perfectly happy with theirs. You'll lose some calibration options and extra inputs/features compared to higher end models, but you may still luck out and get one without any glaring defects. I've owned an Auria (Microcenter rebrand of A- Dell U2711) and it was flawless.

Just keep one of your current monitors. If you do any gaming it's handy to have a second screen with a web browser up on it. 2 gig is fine for your video card. I've been using one of the Korean monitors for almost a year now, and I couldn't be happier with it.

Well I called to reserve the monitor today, but they said it had some dead pixels, so I passed. Maybe they'll have a fully functioning 1440p monitor in sometime soon.

[edit] I meant to post this in another post but messed it up.. still, it could be useful [edit]

Have you considered Monoprice?

They have pretty well reviewed 27" monitors for $390, and have a pretty good warranty:

As you've come to expect from Monoprice, we stand behind our products and offer a full 1 year warranty, which is at least 3-4 times what is offered by other monitor manufacturers. Additionally, we are so confident of the quality of these displays that we are guaranteeing these monitor will have less than 5 dead pixels. If you can count 5 dead pixels anywhere on the screen, we'll give you a new one. By comparison, the industry standard, even for industry leaders like Apple and LG, is 10 dead pixels or even more.

I found another monitor for around $390 at the same place, so I'm going to call in a bit and ask about it. Same idea, 27" 1440p monitor, except it's a Shimian brand monitor. I did a bit of measuring though, and it turns out the three monitors together won't all fit on my desk.

I have room to fit a ~15-17 inch monitor in between my 2x 20" monitors, but I have a shelf beside my desk, maybe I can see if it holds a monitor well.

Hope it works out well, but we'll see later.

But if the desk and shelf thing doesn't work I'll have to build myself a new desk sometime this year for it.
