The Dell 2707WFP is a go
Our sources at Samsung LCD whispered to us a few weeks ago that Dell will feature a 27" LCD this fall with a 1920x1200 resolution.
We got confirmation of this rumor earlier today from former Tom's Hardware editor Vincent Alzieu that Dell has also confirmed the upcoming display to him. In a recent conversation, Alzieu claimed "the 2707WFP will be here in October." Of course, he was talking about France in particular, and a US launch may be even closer. You can find the rest of his thoughts about the upcoming display
on his website, BeHardware.com
Samsung LCD is currently the only display manufacturer with plans for a 27" WUXGA LCD panel,
. The S-PVA panel is a true 8-bit design with a claimed response time of 8ms gray to gray. For all intents and purposes, the display is identical to the
now available via the
Dell USA website
-- Samsung makes the 24" WUXGA panel found in that display as well. However, the 27" panel has a less dense 0.303mm pixel pitch which is not the most attractive pixel width we've seen.

Is that because you ONLY use your PC for gaming and movies from the comfort of your bedroom?
If you are interested in photography and use photoshop, or if you read a lot using the PC, then you will find a higher resolution screen really helps.
Try going to display/settings/advanced and set DPT to 120. Then turn on clear type. And you'll get the idea...

you are correct. my PC is an entertainment tool more than a productivity tool. the thing that frightens me most about getting a 2405/7 or higher is the fact that I would have to upgrade my video card substantially to get the same framerates I get now.

And substantially more than you would have imagined, I suspect.
