I bought myself a standard Asus LED 27" 1080p 60Hz monitor a little more than a year ago that has been a nice upgrade over my old LCD but I find the monitor underwhelming; especially now that their is a scratch right in the middle X(.
I've seen 3D displays and have played Nvision on a weaker 660ti system. Witcher 2 was about the only thing it could run decently in 3D due to performance hit and the newer games having bad support. So 3D is nice but not a priority.
I Play BF4, AC: BF, and various other RTS and MMOs at the moment.
2x 760GTX 2GB
128GB Corsair SSD
Currently this monitor annoys me the most as I slouch in my chair; in games like BF4 this causes lots of darkness causing me to die to hidden enemies. So an IPS LED or LED with high vertical viewing angles would be preferable.
I also am looking for a higher than 60Hz refresh rate and possibly a higher resolution, but I don't want to break my rig by forcing 4k resolution down its throat. 4xMSAA is such a necessity with a 27" monitor or larger and so if you guys think 2xMSAA on 1200p or no MSAA on 1440p is equivalent demand-wise to 1080p that's a possibility.
I do notice the difference between 50FPS and 60FPS.
On TVs I notice 60FPS to 120FPS.
Lastly, I don't buy off-brands, learned my lesson long ago. Samsung, Dell, HP, LG, Asus, etc are all fine.
edit: and as the topic name says, I most likely need a monitor with a large number of these high end perks but under $650 if possible please
I've been watching the market closely and this monitor http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009C3M7H0/ref=s9_simh... is pretty much what I asked for, 75-80Hz 5ms Response, 1440p and not a company I would be afraid to deal with. They have a 1MS 120HZ version of this bad boy coming out Q2, is there any comparable to it thats out now?
