Gaming Monitor Suggestions

I'm looking to purchase a new monitor for the primary purpose of gaming. I mostly play MMOS and ARPGS with the occasional shooter. My problem is I can't decide which type of monitor is best. I would like the best picture quality while playing as well as the largest screen I can get with my current budget. Also having an HDMI input would be a plus.

For my budget, I would like to stay under 350-400 dollars. I'm currently using a single gtx 670. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  1. Best picture quality would mean an IPS display, unless you wanted to play in 3D, which would mean lower picture quality, but 3D (and possibly 120Hz).

    Dell U2412M for an IPS display

    or

    BenQ XL2420T for a 3D and 120Hz display
  2. Yeah the Dell looks nice. Only thing it is missing is the HDMI input. I don't plan on playing in 3D. Would there be any ghosting issues with the Dell? And would there be more benefit to getting a 120 Hz display over an IPS? Also what are your thoughts on getting a 27" vs 24"? Is there much of a difference? Thanks for the reply.
  3. The HP ZR2440w is really similar to the Dell U2412M, but with a few extra features that might be helpful to you, like HDMI.

    There's also this new one from ASUS, in the same category:

    And you might consider getting the famous $350 Korean catleap 27" 2560x1440 IPS display, if you don't mind dealing with a wretched stand and barebone features:

    Depends on what you are planning to use for the HDMI port for, you could always use a DVI to HDMI cable assuming you don't need sound.

    Not that you would really notice, the only time you notice ghosting is if your motion-sensitive, or are hardcore into FPS's. The benefit would be similar to the ghosting issues, things might look "smoother" in FPS games. You would notice the difference in a 27 vs 24 in screen, I mean I notice the difference between a 22 and a 24".
