I'm probably buying a 27" version of the crossover off ebay for $360. To me the big downside to buying these moitors is they have awesome panels but very shitty hardware driving them. These things can not scale at all from what I've read. Other than 640x480 (who would want that) if you are running at anything other than the native resolution it flat out won't display. If you plan on gaming, you better make sure the games you run can run at 2560x1600 at a decent frame rate because you won't be able to scale back to anything else.
