    Diablo III @ 2560 x 1440 resolution?

    What's up ya'll? Looking at getting a 27" monitor at 2560 x 1440. Has anyone played the DIII beta at that resolution? I have a MSI GTX 580 Lightning and an overclocked i5-2500k. Hope it is sufficient! :thumbup:

    LOL!!! That is the exact monitor I ordered today. I was rocking a 27" 1080p HP which is nice but daddy wants IPS..

    Meh I've only got a 24" T___T.

    I'm beginning to regret not splurging a little more for a 27" T______T

    Which 24" do you have z00t? I know some people still running 17" LCDs so that is still nice :)

    I have dual 2560x1440 10 bit H-IPS monitors, an i5 2500k, and dual 6950's.

    The game runs flawlessly.

    Play in full screen windowed mode for even better sexyness.

    As do I...everything looks great on it, but the res is smaller than the 27" monitors. Not yet time for an upgrade though.

    The key word you should look for is IPS.

    No more not being able to see your screen at an angle :p

    there will be no increase in field of view, right?

    i have a 24" IPS 1980:1200 and i actually switched to 16:9 letterbox so i can see more at the left and right edge of the monitor. 16:10 reduces field of view it seems.

    Just got exactly the same monitor, upgraded from a 4:3 1280x1024 resolution LCD. Also looking forward to see Diablo III on it.

    Yea that is nice, but I didn't have the budget to buy a new PC and get a 27 inch IPS monitor

    When I get my $350 27" IPS (Yamakasi Catleap), I will post my opinion as well. I was about to pull the trigger on a $650 Apple 27" Cinema Display til I heard about this. My unit should be delivered on Tuesday -- W00t!!

    Re: Diablo III @ 2560 x 1440 resolution?

    I am also looking for a 27" monitor that runs in 2560 x 1440. My current monitor is an asus 26,(something) that runs in 1920X1200 which is a 16:10 aspect and that isn´t supported by diablo3 unless you use the letterbox option :/

    I was thinking about something like this: http://www.pricerunner.dk/pi/25-2794506/Skaerme/Samsung-S27A850T-Produkt-Info
    (or can anyone reccomend something else?)

    Do not get a TN Panel if you can afford an IPS panel.

    look for a good 27" IPS panel.

    Check this site out for good deals.

    thx a lot Bowzer. I appreciate the help. Yeah those monitors are the Crème de la Crème :), but I am not sure how much taxes there will be on it, when it comes to Denmark. To give you an estimation the samsung screen costs over 1000 us dollars...that´s how expensive electronics are here and you don´t want to know about cars lol. I´ll have to think about it, but while I was checking for a monitor with the IPS technology I found this and it´s cheaper than the samsung:

    That's a great monitor if you don't mind matte.

    I'm more of a glossy with LED backlight kind of guy.
