$250 used to be my price point, but my next will have to be $450-600. I'm going at least 27" WQHD and/or G-Sync.

Samsung are my favorite monitors. You should be able to get a 23" 1920 X 1080 display in that price range.

What are "high end components"? What games will you be playing? What resolutions do you want?

Too many questions for so little information.

What exactly makes them amazing?

The absolute only but of my Dell U2312HM is no HDMI. It only has DisplayPort.

First of all, if you spend nightime hours with your PC , a borderless screen is great by night , it also provides that modern feel + it looks good with the latest Windows out there.

I won't return to normal, borderlocked screens ever again. You should try one in the stores and clear any doubts you have.

I have and it just feels like a gimmick. I can only see it working when you go dual, triple, quad, etc monitor. Other than that, there really is no plus to it except looks.

For $250 whatever you get will not be of the best quality unless it's a really good deal, you can exponentially increase screen quality by bumping your price up to ~400

Huh? DVI = HDMI without sound. You get HDMI to DVI-adapters with every GPU or you can just get an HDMI to DVI cable. No point in both HDMI and DVI since they're the same cable and the same signal.

You complained about it not having HDMI. I wanted to make it clear that HDMI and DVI are the same thing. There's no point in having both.

For the future reference, you need to learn about those cables:

So just because they use the same electrical signal they are the same? :laugh:

HDCP, audio, remote control, bandwidth, connector.....do we really need to go on?
