    your gpu can support max 4096X2160 res on digital and 2048X1536 on VGA.

    there are several 2560x1440 monitors @ 27", especially from korean brands. They all use LG panels- brands to look for are yamakasi, acheiva, crossover and potalion. There is also a domestically produce line fro overlord computers. All these monitors will average $4-500 for a 60hz model. If you want a 120 model, it's around $700 form overlord, or $850 from 120hz.net to get your hands on a 120hz yamakasi catleap. If you're the tinkering type, you could try to find one of the 60hz monitors for cheap on craigslist, then get the 120hz PCB from overlord (the pcb will fit yamakasi's, achieva's, and overlords own. will *not* fit crossovers. unsure about potalion and auria.)

    So, what res are you looking at?

    Ahhh! in that case, you can think about the first option given.

    Or, do you have a specific brand in mind that you would like?
