About to purchase S27A950D, have a few questions..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alright well I am buying it from the Egg shown here - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001472

A couple questions I have:
1) Any other panels that are better than this model? Its going to be paired up with my ACD (Apple Cinema Display).
2) My GTX 590 is currently using the mini display port, so I have three DVI ports I can use. Will I have any issues using DVI with this monitor and getting 3D? I saw a post of someone saying that HDMI has a cap of 60Hz which would be a waste for this monitor as I plan on getting it purely for gaming.
3) NVIDIA 3D Vision? I see people are saying it does not support it, is it purely monitor wise or drivers? I am rather new to the whole 3D, 120Hz thing.
4) Any problems using this side by side with my ACD?

Much appreciated, I am about to hit the buy button on this.

1) Probably too early to tell, not enough concrete data. I have the S23A750 which is the same panel and I am very impressed.
2) Use the supplied DVI-D cable and plug it into a DVI-D port on your 590 and you wont have a problem.
3) There is a 3D Vision Emulator that apparently works. I don't know anything more about it though. Here is a link to the emulator: http://hotfile.com/dl/111389928/3d22...lator.zip.html
4) Nope, I use a ACD + S23A750 no problem.

I've only had my ACD for 4 months. I really love the display, but I am thinking about selling it as I want to get another S23A750. Having the huge ACD next to the S23A750 is pretty odd looking. If I had a S27A750 or 950 next to the ACD like you're going to do it would be pretty awesome. Best of both worlds. You can use the Sammy for FPS or other fast paced games and the ACD for MMO's, D3 and the like.

I don't think the 3D vision drivers determine which you can and cannot use for 3D. It's solely based on a monitor being 120Hz - and that one is, so it should work.
