It is time to upgrade my PC, and this time I am putting special priority on the monitor, as I didn't really think it through when I was building my PC 2 and a half years ago. My current monitor is a Dell ST2310, but I would like to a) go for something bigger and b) a better quality, all based on the threads dominated by Goodbytes here on bit-tech. I was looking at the Dell U2711, or its LED brother. Obviously both of these monitors cost a serious amount and therefore require serious consideration by me, so this is where I ask you lot for advice. Will I notice a difference between a cheaper TN panel (like iiyama's range) and these ones? More to the point, does it justify the price gap? I do spend a lot, perhaps too much, time at my computer so it gets a lot of use. The extra screen space will be nice, but again is it justified compared to smaller IPS panels like the U2410 or the U2412M? I spend a large percentage gaming on the PC, but also do work involving many virtual machines and programming. As for graphical power, I hope to upgrade to an AMD 7870 at the same time.
