I recently got an Asus Matrix HD 7970 GPU which supports up to 2560x1600. I would like to know if you guys have any recommendations for a 27"-ish sized monitor for gaming at 2560x1600.

The 2560x1600 resolution can only be had on a 30" monitor , the newer 27" monitors coming out now have 2560x1440 and it's almost the same but just a bit lower.

These are some of the high end monitors that are out now with that 2560x1440 resolution and as you can see in looking at the spec's they all have 5 -7ms response time. I had a 27" 1920x1080 Lg that had a 2ms respnse time and went to a 30" HP 2560x1600 and 7ms response time and did not notice any difference in gaming. Depending on your gaming skill set you may or may not see any difference.

These new 27" monitors also have some new features like;

Wide Quad High Definition
Delivering four times the pixel resolution of HD, the 27-inch ASUS PB278Q is a 2560 by 1440 Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) monitor that brings incredible definition to your games, videos, and everything else you do.

PLS Panel
The PLS panel provides an ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle and a superior matrice design compared to other panels for enhanced definition and detail.

I wish that these new 27" were out when I bought my 30" , I could have saved quite a biy of money.

Good luck with your choice.
