Monitor stands. Depending on your laptop brand you might want a stand and docking station, although some docking stations have some compatibility issues.

Depending on your laptop brand you might want a stand and docking station, although some docking stations have some compatibility issues. Like the 3rd party ones don't always work for everything they say they do. The issue I usually see are monitors not being able to come out of power save properly when using a dock.
Anyways.. You should be able to find a monitor stand that you can maybe even fit over your laptop with the monitor on top. The only problem with that is you'll need to 1)keep laptop lid slightly open or 2)change power scheme when lid is closed. This is if you plan on not using the touchpad and built in keyboard. IDK, you might want to use the laptop screen too.
Basically a decent docking station will give you more USB ports, audio, mic ports and it will charge your laptop. They usually hook up to a stand. The dell ones with dock and stand for dell laptops usually look similar to this: http://i.dell.com/images/global/products/latit/latit_highlights/laptop_latitude_efamily_docking3_big1.jpg
Alternatively you might be able to find a stand that's used for something else and repurpose it for your uses. On a final note, A docking station may or may not be a good idea regarding the 144mhz and the ones I usually see don't have the proper ports, although I have seen some display port ones. I would just get a monitor stand for this type of monitor and if you just want things as you described: monitor behind and above. Just google monitor stands or wall mount it or even put it on a shelf or something. If you're using the touchpad/keyboard of your laptop and thats why you want it open in front of the monitor, you might want to switch to better external ones. My personal tastes because they're usually too small for me.
Good luck. see less

Answer:
An Xbox does not run games at 140 FPS, meaning it won't be able to use 144 Hz AT ALL. Games run at like 30-50 FPS, so if your buying this monitor for just your Xbox, it would be a bad idea.

Answer:
Yes it does. It shows your rig's true performance in gaming. Once you use a 144Hz monitor you will NEVER EVER want to return to a 60Hz monitor. I'm Dead Serious.

Answer:
It's not noticeable. The only times where it would be noticeable is if you had an IPS monitor right next to it, OR you are viewing it at extreme angles. Also, for the colors you should do some tweaking.

Go to http://pcmonitors.info/reviews/asus-vg248qe/ for more info on this. They will tell you what monitor settings to change to (I listed them below) and also to download and install a .icc profile, there's an icc profile for either a AMD gpu or NVidia so download the right one. If you don't know how to install a icc profile there are instructions in the link.
Change these settings from monitor OSD.
Splendid= Standard Mode
Brightness= 24 (I personally use 40)
Contrast= 75
Color Temp= User Mode
Red= 100
Green= 90
Blue= 89 see less

Answer:
The monitor is not native 144hz. It is native 60hz but can use 144hz IF you provide it with the proper dual link cabling through DVI or Display port ONLY. If you use a console on HDMI the HDMI port input of this monitor is only 1.3 and cannot do 144hz, so the monitor will stay at 60hz due to the source.

This is quite silly as HDMI 1.4 has been around since 2010 so and pretty much every piece of hardware made today has HDMI 1.4.. Why Asus chose an out dated HDMI port I have no idea. see less

Answer:
No. The cross hair is produced by the monitor. Game software can't detect this. It is the equivalent of having a drawn cross hair on the screen. This is true in online games as well.

If you have a Mac which I doubt because you have a GTX 780 (unless you have hackintosh) I am not sure but I think it is in display settings right under resolution in mavericks...I think... only ever played with mavericks through virtual machine but I think I remember it was there. Also duel link DVI will give you 1080p 144Hz but if you can try to use display port it will give you more headroom in terms of resolution so it is just an insurance that you are getting 144Hz though it is a little finicky when you first set it up. see less

Answer:
Just use DisplayPort. It is currently the best for video quality. It is the only protocol that supports 4K at 60Hz, and it should support 1080p at a much higher frequency. DVI-D is a much more limiting cable. HDMI is better than DVI-D, as well.
