Have... not much difference to be honest.. The U2713HM clocks to 90 no prob but the 2311h doesn't at all, though I notice it's less choppy anyway..

I was hoping this would spur a bit of quality/quantity arguments.

Did you try to see if the Dell U3014 would run higher than 60Hz? For 800 bucks I suppose 2 7970's could drive this monitor well enough.

I own the 140Hz Asus 27" 1080P lightboost monitor. I used the 144Hz Asus. The one I always opt for to play games on....is my Dell. If I had the coin I would have sold my nearly new U2713H and gotten this 30 inch beast. Its at a different level than even the 27H. IMHO color pallet and clarity of images will ALWAYS beat out shear frames per second.
It simply depends upon which kind of gaming you do, competitive shooters should be played on a 120hz every single time, while RPG and MMO stuff would benefit the better colors and higher pixel count of the IPS panels, as well as in single player campaigns. YMMV
