Hello all,
I am trying to find a gaming monitor, so far I am debating between these two.
Acer H274HLBMID Black 27" 5ms Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor w/Speakers 300 cd/m2 100,000,000:1 Max (ACM)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=24-009-...

ASUS VE278Q Black 27" 1920x1080 2ms Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor w/Speakers 300 cd/m2 ASCR 10,000,000:1

Trying to stay in the 200-400 price range, I am leaning towards the ASUS but I wanted some more experience opinions, if you have a whole different monitor as a suggestion feel free to post. I will be using it initially with my PS3, and once I finish ordering my parts a custom built computer rig, mostly used for gaming and watching movies etc. Thanks all!

I was looking at the exact two monitors!

The more and more I think about it I would rather not do a 3 screen Eyefinity and just do two screens. One screen for gaming and one for web browsing/working.

Is it worth to get one screen with 3D to play the games and then another screen like an IPS to do work/web browsing?

For example......

27" Acer HN274 (gaming)
27" ASUS VE278Q Black (web browsing/work)
