In the market for a 1440p monitor, help!

Hey guys

So I'm making the jump to a 1440p monitor this Christmas and my budget is around 400. I need some opinions on which monitor is the best given my spending limit. Also I'm still rocking a gtx 580 1.5gb edition and I play a ton of bf4. I can run bf4 on ultra at 1080p and get around 55 fps. How big of an impact will running it at 1440p make? Will it be enough so I can't play on ultra? I was hoping to hold off until the 800 series for a new system build. Any comments or recommendations are appreciated.

Maybe on high but not ultra on 1440p. Note that those monitors from big brands like Asus and BenQ will easily cost over $600. You can try those cheaper Korean monitors though.

at $400 the only ones you can buy are the korean ones from ebay or the one from monoprice

Are they good monitors? I've been doing a little research and eyeing the qnix ones. I would probably pay the extra 50 and get the perfect pixel one simply because dead pixel and five me insane.

They're great for the price, but most buys end up with minor light bleed. I honestly don't mind it. I was cheap and didn't go with the pixel perfect, but mine turned out to be OK.

Just save up for a 1600p one. You may think 1440p is "just as good," but you'll ultimately be left disappointed.
