I highly recommend the monitor. I find myself to be a very competitive, hardcore gamer...And I also find this monitor to be the best monitor I've ever owned. Even at 60 hz, the colors are wonderfully vibrant, and you get 2560x1440 which is considerably better looking than 1920x1080. My Catleap 2B is right next to my wife's 24" Asus, and she always comments that my monitor is like actually looking at something rather than a picture of something. As if you could touch the objects on the screen.
I have to admit, the colors are wonderful, running 120hz at 2560x1440 is an amazing experience, and games in general are much more enjoyable. Diablo 3 looks amazing, Battlefield 3 looks amazing, CS: GO looks amazing, and so on and so forth. If you have the power to push 2560x1440, I highly recommend getting this freaking monitor!!
EDIT: Also would like to say that my BF3 skills definitely have not been hurt by the switch to this monitor! It took a tad bit of adjusting at first, but now I feel like I am even better due to the higher refresh rate! Everything is so smooth. I'm not sure how to explain it other than that it helps me detect enemies better. Also player control seems to have increased. No noticeable input lag increase from going from a TN panel to IPS.
