Any other important specs about monitors that factors into their performances that I missed? Any other monitors worth considering in my price range? Is a few more inches worth losing the 120hz refresh rate? Is there somewhere I can view the black-white-black response times and the real contrast ratios?
On a side note, the Acer HN274H needs to be released!
Hi ok since your going the nvidia way then you can look at the 3d ones.
The best one out of the bunch are the alienware one you got up there. You might look for the Asus one aswell its bundled with the 3d package going for 499 at the moment
Remember for 3d you need a 3d capable monitor and a 120hz refresh rate. So you can count out those 60hz models
I have 3 of the Alienware AW2310's in vision surround mode. Overall I think they are great monitors because they are fast and bright and very uniform. The colors are also very good but I had to sacrifice viewing angle for fast speed since this is a TN panel. They are all TN panels BTW unless you buy an IPS panel and those are not gaming monitors. If you get the Alienware make sure you enable Overdrive mode as this will help in 3D gaming most of all.

"Pros: I've been waiting patiently and checking the internet constantly for over a year for a 27" 3D Vision monitor to come out, ever since Asus teased us last year. Finally I now have the monitor of my dreams and it exceeds all of my expectations. The build quality on this monitor is fantastic. I came from the Alienware AW2310 and this monitor blows it away. The ghosting is the least I've seen, and the size is perfect. With the widescreen view on this baby the immersion level is unreal. I really like the dot pitch, there is no "tearing" of the pixels that I really disliked about the Alienware. This monitor is awesome, and I am stoked because products like this will be driving the 3D market and I love 3D.
Cons: The stand is only tilt adjustable, but you can connect a vesa stand which I did.
Other Thoughts: I use this with Two GTX470's Overclocked in SLI"
On Newegg it has all 5 star ratings (except the guy with 4, who basically gave a 5star rating in words anyways).

2nd place goes to the Alienware AW2310 with honorably mention in the price category.
