Hello, i'm looking for a new 27 inch monitor.
I will use it for gaming, web surfing, watching movies and working on powerpoint/java .
I'd like if you can give me an option for a 1920x1080p monitor and an option for a 2560x1440 monitor.
I live in Italy, and I can buy it on www.amazon.it and on www.e-key.it .
not more than 350€ for the 1920x1080p
not more than 600/700€ for the 2560x1440p.
My rig is:
cpu i5 750 @ 3,2 ghz
gpu gts 250 1gb (plan to upgrade in christmas)
500gb hdd for storage
The Dell is probably a good choice. Only thing I don't like with Dell is that you can't be 100% sure they'll use the same panel as the model you've seen reviewed (called the 'panel lottery'). Asus seem to stick to using the same components so their displays are a safer bet. Plus they have a pixel overdrive tech called Trace Free which achieves better pixel response than anything else I've ever seen. Most pixel response tech either causes a visual flaw called 'overshoot' (different kind of trails) or fails to adequately reduce the original trails. That MX279H looks like a really nice display. See if you can find a review for it, though it's probably a safe bet.
If I get the 1440p monitor, will a single 7970 GHz be enough to play at high-ultra settings on current games and newer, or should I wait the next amd cards( I've heard that in Christmas the 9xxx should be out)?
I think my gts 250 will have hard time at 1440p (probably at 1080p too)
