Summary: In order to get a feeling for how the monitor works for its intended audience, I set it to FPS2, one of its "Picture Modes," and played through Crysis 3. Thanks to my new ASUS R9 290Xs, I was able to push 100+ FPS at 'Very High' settings.

Cons: Finicky touch buttons, No built-in speakers, Super pricey, Despite it being worth every penny, the XL2720Z is an expensive addition to any gaming setup.
