BUT, I'll be grabbing a gtx280 soon, and want a better display...
I mostly game, do some 3d animation and what not, use to do ALOT of cad, not so much any more, would still like a display suitable for it though. I imagine any 8 bit display good for gaming would be fine for cad. I wouldn't want to spend more than 450, which puts me in range of the benq but I want other choices before I pick, peoples opinions and reviews. Also, its impossible to find 8 bit panels based on the specs listed on Etailers, so I thought I might ask to see of some one knows or knows a site that has listed them or done a big panel round up.
3D Animation? Maya? CAD? Well, I'll actually suggest the Radeon 4870 rather than the GTX280 as overall it has more total bandwidth (Exceeding one tera) theorhetically this means faster for 3D applications..... If they support it, because software based ones still rely on the processor. So just upgrade the processor if that software doesn't support 3D rendering on hardware.
I think only very few people have experienced real problems with that monitor. You're probably referring to a 1 in 1000 problem from an angry customer (don't blame him, but I'm just saying chances are rare).
