I found my 580 struggling to power this monitor in all games. It is a boat load of pixels. Honestly, when I go for a 27" gaming setup I plan on either SLI'ing 580s or waiting for the 690s to land and SLI'ing two of them. From a ghosting POV there is some, but it is very, very minor and easily the best professional grade monitor I have seen in this regards. You are correct when you say that numbers can be misleading as I have a 23" 2ms TN panel here that shows more ghosting than the sammy did!

Hope that helps.
