Acer GD235HZ
Alienware OptX AW2310 23-inch 3D Full HD Widescreen Monitor with GeForce 3D Vision Kit
BenQ XL2410t
Dell U711 27"

Ignoring cost, what is the best monitor for gaming, whether inside or outside of this list. This will by all means be a gaming monitor, with plans to add a second and (possibly) 3rd monitor down the road. The GPU's I will likely be running are something like dual GTX 580's.

I really like the GD235HZ and the AW2310, and as well I hear that the XL2410t has a superior panel. The U711 looks a bit too big for playing RTS games, but I am not 100% sure.

If it's important for gaming to have 120HZ and LED over LCD, or 24" maximum, please help me narrow my search, as I think I am in over my head here!


I love my Dell 3008WFP. At last, they don't make them anymore. I consider it still to this day one of the best monitor ever made.
