Looking for 27" 1080P Monitor for gaming

I'm currently using a 24" monitor but am toying with the idea of upgrading to 27" and bringing my current monitor to my office where I need a second monitor anyway. I did go to a local store to compare

I'm thinking 27" as that is the biggest monitor that should display 1920x1080 decently. While 2,560x1,440 would be nice, my video card (ATI 7970 OCed a bit) gives me great performance at 1920x1080. I don't want to have to worry about upgrading sooner as more demanding games come out.

I was wondering if there any decent monitors in the $300 price range.
Thanks!

I bought this one a few months back for my 2nd machine: http://www.amazon.com/AOC-E2752VH-27-Inch-Widescreen-Mo...

So far, I am very satisfied with it. My goal, like yours, was to get a good quality monitor for the least amount of money. Since this was for a 2nd machine, I didn't want to spend a lot. It has a few minor design drawbacks, but a great, fast LED backlit display for gaming.

Thanks. I'm a little worried about the 60hz refresh rate. You think it might be worth it to go up to 120?

I've never had a reason to go 120HZ, so I'm the wrong person to ask. Some folks seem to think so, though. But some folks are easily taken in by sales hype.

But remember, the more pixels/texels the card has to address, the more powerful the gfx card has to be to reach the same playably smooth frame rates and frame times you would have gotten with a 1080p display. Not just today, but with future, more graphically demanding games too.
