Are you after a 2560x1440 screen? There are a few 1920x1080 ones knocking about but for a lot of uses they're not substantially different from normal sized 1920x1080 screen (circa 23") which is substantially cheaper.

It's worth finding out. A 2560x1440 screen will show 80% more than a 1920x1080 screen on some types of games (typically strategy & similar) so there can be a big difference. 2560x1440 screens start at around £280 so it may work out better to offer to pay for part of it.

Or as a compromise you could look at LG's 25" 2560x1080 25UM65 which is the same width as a 27" screen but not as tall. It fits more on screen than a 27" 1920x1080 monitor for strategy games and gives a wider field of view for first/third person games.

Unless he specifically needs the size (because he wants to view it from further away for example) a sub-£200 27" screen isn't usually the best pick.

What would you recommend in 2560x1440 ? I am also looking for a 27inch and didn't know this - I was going to go for a 1920x1080, but figure If I'm going to get one I may as well make sure it is top notch. Ideally I would like to spend about 300 ? I find myself drawn to iiyama and benq ? It will mostly be used for World of Warcraft, and general pc use.

Thought about that, think I would prefer one decent large monitor, as I watch the odd movie on it as well.

If you find those with a very thin bezel it should be quite nice for movies. It's just an idea really, as productivity wise, I think multi-monitors are great.

I'm assuming the resolution is monitor specific rather than graphics card specific ? (my current max on my LG is 1920 x 1080p)

Both. Monitors have their native resolution and the specific port on the GPU can support a max resolution.
