OK so... I use the Nvidia GeForce Experience App to give me optimal settings for my games. It's pretty much as high as you can go on my system. BF3 2560x1440 I'm getting 50-60 fps with pretty much Ultra settings (4xAA). That increases to 60-70 fps with 2xAA. That uses over 2 GB Vram. BF3 1920x1080 I get 80-100 fps with 2xAA. Farcry3 2560x1440 I'm getting 50-60 fps and it uses 1600-1700 MB Vram. Farcry3 1920x1080 I get 100 fps and it uses about 1300 MB Vram. Obviously the above are averages from what I saw tonight. Playing at 1920x1080 wasn't as bad as I thought it would be on this monitor, but everything is much better at the full resolution. Hope that helps you guys out. IMO at 27" or above you need better than 1080 resolution, but it definitely going to depend on your rig.
