Dells are also very solid, and highly popular among discerning enthusiasts.
Going with a 27" 1920x1080 is a good choice, going for 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 almost always requires SLI/Crossfire to max games out.
I have the 2560x1440 Auria IPS (via Microcenter) that was ~$400. The 1080p version is only $200.
It's a fantastic LED IPS that is an A- panel--the branded Apple or Dell monitor would run around $800-100.--
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
