Hi everyone I've been searching for a good 27" or 29" gaming monitor, the problem is I can't find any large format monitor with 1-3ms response time with a fast refresh rate and good picture? If there are any out there any information would be greatly appreciated. Also my spending range is about 500-600$ less is always better :)

Theres this monitor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... it has 1440p but the response is 5ms and quite frankly, a 2ms delay is not even a difference. Its when you use large tv that get like 40ms lag.


Is 60Hz really fast enough for gaming? I normally get 60-120 FPS if that matters.

Its a 1440p monitor so you won't get the same fps as you do with 1080p. Whats your graphics card?
If you want a 1080p 144hz monitor, theres this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but it is 24 inch. I had some trouble finding a larger display with a higher refresh rate.
Then theres the ROG Swift that will be released soon. It'll be released at 800$ which is over your budget but its 27 inch, 120hz 1440p monitor. http://www.anandtech.com/show/8085/asus-rog-swift-pg278...

That ROG Swift looks like a really great monitor, It is just to much for me to spend on a monitor as I spent most of my money on my gaming rig. My question is will I see much of a difference from 60Hz to 144Hz? And with a 1440p monitor will I get better FPS if I switch to 1080p on certain games? Also my graphics card is a GTX 780 Ti.

Well, your options are a 1080p 144hz or 1440p 60hz. A 780ti will drive each of the monitors to their specs. Its a matter of preference and type of games you play.
