GPU: MSI Radeon 7850

Not too heavy gaming, something around World of Warcraft or Assassins creed level

Your chosen monitor is good, but the viewing angles are limited, and its a TN panel monitor.

Look at this monitor with IPS panel and full viewing angel and lots more. It has a 3.5mm jack for audio out in the back, though not mentioned.

I actually just went thru this same drill, I have a 7870 card. I thought about the cheap Korean hi-def screens, thought about the nice Dell's, looked at the Asus including your choice which went on sale today (good buy IMHO). After a few days of research I decided that the Viewsonic was the way to go http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . Very similar monitor except for 27 inch.
