    Red face buying a new monitor

    hi I ordered a 970 msi and i am looking for a new 2560x1440 monitor. wanting to spend around 200 to 300 pound maybe 350 and was wondering which is the best one for this price range. Also will i be able to max out most games at this resolution or should i stick with 1980x1080. size wise hope to get 27inch but 24 is still ok.
