Which Monitor will be a good upgrade? [1440p Vs. 1080p Vs 3D]

So just as a little back story: Somehow my vizio tv broke when I was transporting it recently. To replace it I got the PS3 3D TV for $180. Turns out it was cheap because it is completely unreliable. After having 2 break on me, I am just gonna return it to best buy. I want the new-new monitor to be a worthy upgrade so all of this cap didn't happen for nothing. Which one would you think is the most sensible to get? I am looking for a lot of different and experienced opinions here so please chime in people!

For reference this is my old TV: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002T922OC/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00


Here are the 5 I have narrowed it down to:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-ACHIEVA-Shimian-QH270-IPSMS-HDMI-DVI-D-VGA-27-LED-2560x1440-PC-Monitor-/220994030736?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3374454c90

This one is only $400 and it has all the things I want: HDMI for easy PC sound and PS3, built in speakers, and other connectors. I just am really not sure if the price is worth it over 1080p.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/CROSSOVER-2730MD-LED-27-DP-Port-D-sub-HDMI-1-4a-2560x1440-PC-Monitor-NEW-/170946483136?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item27cd3453c0&quantity=1&autorefresh=true

This one is about the same price, but it seems like it has better sound and build quality. However the seller seams smaller so it worries me a little.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-WECUBE-ST2770W-LED-IPS-27-2560x1440-WQHD-HDMI-PC-Monitor-Built-in-speaker-/121026833056?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c2dc2eaa0

The cheapest of the 1440p's I have listed, but again I am unsure if wecube is good, and if it will have calibration settings.


http://www.amazon.com/Asus-VG23AH-23-Inch-LED-lit-Monitor/dp/B008484Q6E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1355505958&sr=8-1&keywords=ASUS+VG+Series+VG23AH+Black

This one is nice because it has 3D like my old one. However I am unsure if 3D is worth paying for.


http://www.amazon.com/Asus-VE228H-21-5-Inch-Integrated-Speakers/dp/B00413PHDM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1355506286&sr=8-1&keywords=Asus+VE228H

This one is by far the cheapest fully featured 1080p monitor I could find. However how much better would the picture quality be than my old vizio?

    No the ones I am looking at only have 6 ms, and the 120 Hz monitors are too expensive. I am not getting one with just one dvi.
