Why do people setup surround/eyefinity,sli or crossfire cards,yet use crappy tn panel - Page 8

post #71 of 125
Its not like the difference between TN panels and IPS panels is a 13" black and white TV vs a 60" 120hz 3D ready Plasma or whatever.
I have a TN panel LCD and to me it looks wonderful and I highly doubt I'd be impressed by an IPS panel on anything other than viewing angles.

For me, I would love to have a nice IPS panel that is 1080p or greater. I am still using a crappy 5+ year old 1680x1050 panel. I just have priorities in other aspects of my system. This TN panel looks fine to me anyways. I can see colors, I can see details, I still kick butt in BC2, so it is not a huge deal to me. I honestly would love to have a 27-30" monitor that is 2560x1600, but I am too broke for that.

I don't want to spend $400-500 to get something with a lower resolution.

digiadventures, if you fill out your system, perhaps we can find something about your setup that can allow us to make a good analogy so you can understand. Once you do that, I'm sure people can have a better time explaining.

For example, do you use a nice mechanical keyboard? If not, why don't you? It's better for everything you can do on a keyboard, like typing, gaming, etc. and only costs a bit more than a gaming keyboard or less in some cases. The difference in quality between a membrane keyboard and a mechanical is enormous as well.

You know why people have membrane keyboards? They don't feel like spending more for a mechanical, or they just don't care. To answer your question about why people don't get IPS Panels, it's exactly the same. People either don't feel like spending more, or they don't care about having increased picture quality.

Stop trying to laugh at people and try to attempt to understand other views.
I have added my system details, but this post is about people who buy 3 monitors and sli the most expensive cards like 580 etc..and still buy tn monitors.I can't afford not even one 580,not to mention sli, yet I still bought ips panel

If you are going to pick apart my system and tell me there are lot's of important upgrades I can do ( more important then monitor even ) you dont have to bother I know that.

I am not saying somebody who is building midrange system and can't afford high end should buy ips panels. That was my personal perference to pair this ips monitor with this system.

But people having sli high end cards,using eyefinity or surround ? That's different story.

It just seems a lot of people don't really know how far ips and pva monitors have come in last couple of years. They certanly are better for everything,including gaming, then tn panels.
I guess this was the point of the post ?

you know, you could have put it much better than to laugh at people in your original post. Couldn't you just have wrote what you did in this post instead? You would have come off as much more mature. Seriously, when I read your original post, you sounded like a huge troll.

I guess the same question could be flipped and pointed right back at you. What's the point in buying an IPS panel when you don't have a high end graphics card to play games? You'd probably say something like using the computer for web browsing or whatever is improved as well, which is entirely valid. In that case, keep in mind people might get eyefinity not only for gaming (productivity is improved with more monitors) and people get high end graphics cards for things other than games too (folding, video processing, etc)

Also, you can't use IPS panels for 3d surround, which some people have for their high end systems.

I think he's mainly speaking about quality displays, not IPS specifically.

High end aperture grille can have better colour accuracy than IPS and still do 3D better than any LCD, due to t he lack of ghosting, which would always leave a faint ghost image of the wrong eye on the LCD displays, making the 3D slightly worse.

EDIT: If they support 3D. I'm not even sure now. Would these things work on the glasses? They can do 120hz and lots more if you want.

I think CRTs can work with 3d, as long as you have 100 Hz or higher refresh rate. Something like that.

And about 3d, it's just a reason why someone would go for a TN panel instead of IPS with a high end system

Yeah, I just wasn't sure about the compatability.

For example, my CRT can do 1600x1200 @ 110hz. That'd be 55hz per eye.

The sony GDM-FW900 could achieve the same on 1920x1200. And still look better than a TN monitor.


Though these things are one of the following:

A: extremely hard to find

B: Around the 300-800 dollar mark


Unfortunately, here in finland they are extremely hard to find. This F520 was the only one I found.

Generic CRT display is a 3D display type in NVIDIA's Control Panel so it would work.
