Thank you all for the responses. A few things to add:
@ Smeg45: I play games on the monitor, but I also have it hooked up to a 50in 1080p 120hz LCD TV and 5.1 Surround sound. I use it for a home media tower as wel as my personal PC.
@ Area51reopened: If you read the reviews, some people claim to have gotten software/driver disc with the product, so while I was not expecting it, I was being optimistic.
