Looking for a new monitor upgrade

#1hokkendirePosted 8/13/2013 1:43:57 PM
I am in a need for a new monitor from my current one. MY current monitor is a 21.5" Dell. I am not really sure the route that I want to go and would like some opinions.

I would like to go through Dell.

!) Go with a 3 way 21.5 inch set up by ordering 2 new monitors to go along with my current one. I don't know how I feel about this as I think its cool, but same time I see myself rarely ever using it for most games anyhow so it would be a waste.

Or does anyone have any experience with any of these two;

2)Go with the S2740L( The price is great and its in the size range I would like to have, reviews for this seem to be excellent.

3)U2713H or HM ( 2560 x 1400 is nice, large screen. But I have some issues with the reviews on its input lag. I currently have a 7950 but this November plan on going up to a crossfire if I go with this monitor.

Not sure why you want to continue to go with Dell monitors, so I'll throw this out there. You mentioned that input lag is a concern, so...

"Oh but I want 27" with high resolution!"
There's a fine line between stupidity and insanity. Will you cross it?

Going with Dell as I have a credit line with the that is about to close due to inactivity, that I want to keep open for the credit score bump it provides, otherwise would love to go with newegg or amazon as i have the money on hand to pay it off right away

The U2713HM is a good monitor and the input lag isn't that bad. May not compete with some of the 120Hz monitors, but it's good for most gaming.
Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.

I just got an ASUS PB278Q and find it to be incredible. At very least worth your consideration.

Edit: And I just read that you have to stick with Dell, never mind! :)
