I currently have 2 Acer S230HL-a bd (1920x1080 or 3840x1080) monitors. If I picked up that single 1440p monitor I would probably get rid of my dual set up. I really like the PB279Q from everything I'm seeing about it.

I would probably have to get a beefeier GPU though. Currently, I have a Sapphire 7850 2GB. What's the best single GPU card that can run @ 1440p? 7990? 290x? etc. If it comes down to purchasing the monitor along with a gpu, I would prefer the gpu to save me some money but money isn't exactly an issue.

290x does pretty well at 1440p, and is a lot cheaper than a 7990 currently (but wait for the aftermarket cooler versions),

SLI 280x's will also do the job if you want to go that route.

if you're willing to take a risk go for a korean 1440p monitor, mine is nearly flawless and it was $340. (qnix qx2710, buy from accessorieswhole)

I know, I said around to leave out specifics. Close enough? I have it on watch on most sites. From PCpartpicker, Amazon, to Newegg etc.

I'd get a cheaper Korean panel and use the extra money to buy a 780 Ti when/if 6GB models come out.

If that doesn't happen, get a 290X.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

R9 280Xs can do SLI? It's a f***ing miracle. Everybody rejoice for The Lord has returned.

I voted yes. I think you should waste your money on a pointless upgrade.
