So I was looking to upgrade to a 1440p monitor. Will be used mainly for gaming and surfing the internet. My budget it is anything under 400 dollars and preferably with a 5ms response time or lower(if that is even possible). Thanks in advance!

Besides the 1ms difference in response time is there really a difference between the cheaper ones VS the more expensive ASUS one? Also I'm not looking to over clock the monitor.

It has been my experience that "you get what you pay for" when it comes to monitors. I would go with the Asus 1ms or a Dell IPS.

Is there an real benefit of buying a 550$ ASUS monitor instead of cheaper Qnix or ACER? If I'm going to spend that much on a monitor I might as well wait for a 1440p Gsync one, even tho its priced at 700$

And if you find that your $50 less bargain monitor less than satisfactory, what are going to do with that extra $50?

If you got the cash, wait it out for the new ASUS PG2780Q G-SYNC monitor as it will serve as the superior option among "gaming" 1440p monitors. I currently use a korean Yamakasi Q270 1440p IPS monitor and love it. You can get these for nearly half the price of what the new ASUS is going to cost you, but you'll miss out on the fluid 120Hz and G-SYNC features..

I have the money for a 1440p Gsync monitor but 700$ is a lot to drop on a monitor. I might just but the ASUS one for 550$ or wait and see if I can get a good Gsync one for 600?

A lot of people have good things to say about the QNIX regardless of it being a korean knockoff, but I prefer Yamakasi as their QC is on average a little higher, (but a little more pricey.)

No offense to Amazon, but ebay has a plethora of these floating around. But I highly advise getting one from a reputable seller with a good return policy whether if it a shop from amazon or seller on ebay. The seller back when I bought mine had amazing support and offered 14 day return policy. Here is where I advise getting since it seems to get a great deal of traffic and great reviews.

The DVI and displayport will give you full 60Hz 1440p.

Are you sure you're not going to overclock that monitor? You could get that thing up to 1360jigaflops and 128 bit colors...

if you are looking for 2650x1440 27" monitors, these are the absolute lowest of the line.

Monitor: Crossover 27Q LED 60Hz 27.0" Monitor ($413.49 @ Amazon)
Monitor: Achieva QH2700-IPSMS LITE EDGE 60Hz 27.0" Monitor ($373.49 @ Amazon)
Monitor: Acer K272HULbmiidp 60Hz 27.0" Monitor ($407.58 @ Newegg)

this one I'd recommend.

Monitor: Asus PB278Q 27.0" Monitor ($549.99 @ Amazon)

The prices pretty much go up from there...




But isn't the PB278Q a PLS monitor?

The biggest difference you begin to see with the more $$$ you spend on the monitor is color rendition, hence why studios, media, and such use them.

This is why when you put say this ASUS PG278Q (Speed & Color) against (Gaming at High)

ASUS PB278Q 27-Inch WQHD (Color) against (Media Maverick)

ASUS VS278Q-P Ultrafast 1ms 27-Inch LED (Size & Speed, but only 1080p)

And the price drops with each level, and the same happens as you keep increasing the $$$.
