$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.

Hello,

http://accessories.u...px?sku=320-2807

This is the one I have.

I watch movies so I had to go with 1920 x 1080 even though people were recommending another resolution. I dont have ONE remorse of going with 1920 x 1080 :) Awesome buy.

Whatever you choose, try borderless screens. They are amazing!

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.
