Best Monitor for X
 
Sorry guys I know there are alot of threads about this but I am having some trouble on what to decide for a monitor. I'm running SLI GTX 680s and am thinking about a 3 monitor setup (3 for gaming but 2 for design and rendering/multitasking) Gaming though comes before work when it comes to my home system in terms of monitors.

I'm not looking for a monitor that goes well with just a 3 monitor setup, or is a good price, but just the best quality monitor whether on its own or in Surround. I need a monitor with the following:

120hz (I dont really have use for 3D Vision so that will be hard to find a monitor without it in the first place)

Has to be below 27" (Resolution and crispness matters to me)

And Input Lag (The lowest input lag I can find that is 120hz would be preferable)

And of course the picture has to actually look good, which I trust you to know better than me when it comes to the quality of a monitor and it's picture quality/color quality

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Have you looked into those korean yamakazi/catleap monitors. They are a good price for what you get, just its not guaranteed that they will be dead/stuck pixel free.

any particular reason it has to be 120Hz? Do you have 120fps on all your games?

On the games i'm currently playing yes.

And when you are gaming you don't care how seamless your 3 monitor set up is? (as in you don't care how much gap you have between images)

I have not actually, I could give them a look though, dead/stuck pixel does kinda worry me though. Thanks for the suggestion though :)

Well I wont really mind either way the gaps between the monitors. But I'm just looking for a quality monitor with my above preferences. But if you have any suggestions, shoot! :)

The reason I'm asking is if you are doing multi-monitor gaming, bezel is usually a concern because you want as seamless of gameplay as possible. Wasn't sure what your tolerance was.

What is the max price you would be willing to pay?

For a single monitor about the 500 dollar range, and no more then 599. I can always just use a spare monitor for other applications.

Mounting it or just sitting on the desk?
