Because such a card should have no problem displaying that resolution, provided that an DP, HDMI or dual-link DVI cable can be/is used. And the cards can do scaling as well, so you can always game in a lower resolution, even if the monitor does not have a scaler.

Also keep in mind there is a big difference between someone that plugs in a FPS once in awhile and messes around with it (the type that plop down on a couch and see no downside in a giant TV compared to a monitor) and someone who plays FPS's regularly and may be sensitive to lag. Easiest ways to test these monitors is simply spinning in a circle. They may be fine when you're pointed one direction or in largely static settings, but not when it comes to reacting and giving you data as fast as possible when it matters.
TN and IPS panels can have input lag. That's not a IPS or a TN only thing.
