Best 27" Gaming HDMI Gaming monitor?

Hi,I am looking for a new HDMI gaming monitor for my gaming computer. I need it to be 27 inches and preferably 1440p, more than 60Hz and at most a 4ms GTG response time. I was looking at the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG278Q monitor, but it has display port only, and that is not an option for me. Anything under $1500 is great.

  1. HDMI doesn't have enough bandwidth for 1440p at higher than 60Hz.

    And that monitor you have listed is the only one that fits your specs. There are Korean monitors that are PLS (so better colours etc than TN) and can do 60Hz plus at a much lower cost but won't have really low GTG response time. Though I went from a 2ms monitor to an 8ms one and didn't notice any difference. Again the ones that have higher refresh rates don't support HDMI.

    As optimus says, HDMI is not good enough. You will probably need to use DisplayPort to get over 60Hz on a 1440p monitor.

    Something like this MIGHT work if you get a 1440p monitor with a displayport but i can't guarantee anything http://www.amazon.ca/Accell-B086B-003B-2-UltraAV-DisplayPort-Adapter/dp/B00DOZHLAA/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1403526558&sr=8-4&keywords=hdmi+to+displayport+active
  3. From what I can tell, you're gonna be hard pressed to find a better monitor than that Asus.

    I would go Display Port rather than HDMI, tho...
