Hey all,

Been researching for a bit now and at a bit of a dead end trying to find a 27' monitor. I am looking for a solid gaming monitor. Unless I'm missing any major players, the majority of the threads I've read have left me with three solid choices:

- Samsung S27A950D
- Samsung S27A850
- Dell U2711

I'm not sure If I should be focusing on the 120hz or the 2560x1440 resolution?

Any help in a timely manner is most appreciated. Would love to get my new monitor within the next few days for Diablo 3!

Thanks

Do you want the 120hz for stereoscopic 3d (with shutter glasses) or for smoother animation? For Diablo 3 I doubt stereoscopic 3d would make a big difference (it's more useful for first-person perspective games), in which case you might prefer the 2560x1440 monitor. However, smoother animation probably wouldn't hurt, and you might think about the pixel density as well - the Samsungs would be about 82 pixels per inch, while the Dell is 109 pixels per inch.
