Hello, I was looking at either getting the asus 24in 1080p monitor with 2ms delay and the 27in 1440p korean monitor with 6ms delay. I'm getting this monitor to game on and play games such as bf4, gw2, and Elder Scrolls Online. My computer has a GTX 780 in it. Which would be my best bet?
Thanks.

Asus is a very high quality focused company. I would pick the 1080p because even one 780 wouldn't give you good enough frames at 1440p. I don't know about the ms as different manufacturers measure that differently but people on the forums recommend 5ms or less to avoid ghosting

I would go for the asus 24inch, has a faster response time and you'll get better fps in games at 1080p

What people fail to realize is at 1440p you dont need the extra filters like AntiAliasing like you do at 1080p. I see all these tests and benchmarks done at ultra settings including AntiAliasing being cranked uo and getting less than desirable fps. No need for AA at higher res so in reality you would probably get solid fps with a 780 at 1440p in games like bf4 and what not especially if you overclock it. Just remember as your res goes up your filters need to go down as they are not needed. In fact does anyone have some actual benchmark numbers that are RECENT and that arent old pre all the optimization for 1440p? I say current because old benchmarks for bf4 and such show 780ti and 780 at much lower nunbers then whwt they currently pull. For example I get about 30-40 fps more now on my 780ti then what the pre optimization numbers got.

I'm just hopping in here because azzazel_99's answer somewhat intrigues me. I'm thinking about getting a 1440p monitor primarily for gaming but some video and photo editing on the side. Any that you could recommend or should I just wait for the 27in from ASUS with G-SYNC. My system is pretty beefy, 2x 780ti's and a 3770k @4.6ghz

gsync isnt really going to be something thats great unless you are running lower end systems. I run a 780ti classified 2500k and 8gb gskill ram with a 144hz asus 27inch monitor and i dont get ANY screen tearing at all so i would not benefit from gsync at all. Its kinda like mantle is for amd. Only really benefits lower end stuff to make low fps look good. If you are running a high end system i would save money and just get a 120hz or 144hz monitor and leave gsync alone.
