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=N82E16824116582
. Very similar monitor except for 27 inch.
