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

I absolutely recommend you pick it up. It is truly amazing. right now with my setup I am running BF4 maxed out ultra 1440p at about 80-100 fps, although I should note I have latest AMD drivers and windows 8.1. The 7990 is an amazing card and for the price it is totally worth it for 1440p all day everyday

Bought a Nixeus Vue 27'' for 380 open box and works flawlessly. Better than the Korean ones uses Grade A panels. Worth the money. I was considering the Asus a few weeks ago but I prefer a glossy finish so I went with the Nixeus. I don't regret it and it was cheaper.

If you are afraid of the Korean monitors you could always order from Monoprice. They use the same panels, but the Monoprice one ships from the US. I got one from there and the first one they sent was damaged, got in contact with their customer service and got it replaced quickly. They didn't even ask many questions. They just sent me a shipping label and shipped another to me. Monoprice definitely has some of the best customer service you'll see. My 2nd monitor was near perfect, just had a bit of backlight bleeding which you'll see in just about every 1440p monitor. This is the one I ordered:

I will never go back to 1080p as it just looks so pretty with 1440p.

I voted yes, I own this model and love it, currently running a 7950 and things run great....so you shouldn't have to get a top of the line card, tho I bet it'd be nice

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)


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

Asus monitors have never been the best quality. This one in particular they seem to have quality control issues with. I bought two at fry's and returned them that day. One had what can be best described as dust particles in the panel. Very annoying. The second one had very uneven brightness. So, I ended up buying an LG monitor. If you want a truly good quality 2560x1440 monitor you are going to have to pay in the $700 range minimum sadly. You can always return it if you don't like it.
