Local guy is getting married, selling all his gaming gear and he's got this dell u2711 for sale for $500.00.

I'm gaming on an led tv and while it was fun and exciting to have that much real estate I'm interested in something with a little more resolution. I've done the eyefinity thing, that was fun too but had my fill.

I just wanted any feedback. $500.00 seems like a steal, it's 6 ms but I'm thinking that'll be fine for gaming. I've got plenty of card power to juice it. Any feedback appreciated.

Good deal, great monitor. Look at all the connectors!


High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
2 Digital Visual Interface connectors (DVI-D) with HDCP
DisplayPort (DP)
Video Graphics Array (VGA)
Component Video
Composite Video
1 USB 2.0 upstream port
4 USB 2.0 downstream ports
8 in 1 Media reader
DC power connector for Dell Soundbar
The only thing it is missing is s-video.

Worth considering (and eventually getting)

Pity the guy who is going to get married. Shit happens in life :/

Thanks for the feedback, I'm really excited to have a high res monitor for the first time. It'll be nice to be able to justify dual cards and an overclock.

Poor guy sounded whipped already on the phone...
