I want to purchase a better 24-27 inch gaming monitor. Is there one?

It's not really proprietary. It uses the same HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort etc. connections every other monitor uses. It just has a more uncommon aspect ratio

I picked that up directly from Amazon for $317 2 days ago. Seems it's being sold by third parties at present.

This one is a downgrade due to its same size and inferior aspect ratio.

How can being the same size as the one you listed count as a 'downgrade'? Yeah the aspect ratio isn't as good, but did you skip that it's 144Hz and 1ms?

Man, two Titans is overkill for that monitor but the monitor itself still looks nice. Asus, Dell and AOC make their own in this size too.

If I had all the money I wanted for a monitor, I'd get this one just for the horizontal-ness alone. More immersive and looks more slick than a 3-monitor setup IMO. I'm curious to know how it does with games from a 2D perspective like Rayman Legends or Street Fighter 4 AC.

Yeah that monitor looks nice. It's my "dream" monitor too. I have the money to buy it, but I'm too cheap/frugal to take the leap. If there is a good deal on it anytime soon though I'm on it. Can't wait to upgrade from this old 20 inch 1600 x 900 TN panel.
