I'll upgrade when I can't run BF4 ultra everything over 80FPS thumb.gif
Is 120Hz really good? I was looking at a Ultrasharp 27 but it's only 60Hz and what brand / model would you recommend

I didn't think 120hz would make any difference at all. In fact, I bought the Samsung s27a750d more for it's color/sharpness/accuracy. I don't think I could go back to a 60hz monitor again. It's really hard to explain, but 120hz almost has the same feel of going from 30-40 fps to 60fps in a game. I'm not getting any more fps than on my regular 60hz monitor, but it *feels* like I am. Much more fluid and I wish I could explain it better. Even 2d windows desktop/browsing is smoother. You also don't need to be at 120fps in a game to feel the effect. Allegedly, the closer you are to 120fps, the better the "smoothness" effect gets, but even 80fps in BF3 and 50FPS in Skyrim feels smoother than on my 60hz monitor that is now relegated to system monitoring duty.

I bought the S27A750D because it was the best picture/bang for the buck in 120hz. It's the same panel as the S27a950d, but with a more conventional stand, less problems, and much cheaper.

GOOD NEWS...

New ATIMANs Uninstaller is now available v.6.3.1 thumb.gif
http://www.mediafire.com/?sja6d1z3t2ld6as


Note: To install this program (if admin account is not active) you have to disable UAC.

Atiman Uninstaller v.6.3.1

New Features:

1. Extra menu in the main page "quick uninstallation"
This removes the driver in order to install another version of the same driver family e.g. 12.2 with another version of 12.2
This one click procedure takes less than 10 secs together with the auto restart and after this the intallation of the new driver can take place immediately.

Note: For greater efficiency of the uninstaller the classic Atiman's uninstaller NEXT GENERATION auto procedure is required...

2. Ability to remove any driver (including modded ones) even if the driver doesnt have an install manager. This is achieved through a special designed ES Manager with lots of extras.

The procedure is fully automatic and the only way to identify the difference just by reading the uninstaller's notes during the procedure.

3. Faster performance of Next Generation uninstall procedure.

4. Removal of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 that gets installed during the drivers installation.

5. ULPS Control through the Start menu> Atiman Technologies Inc > Atiman Uninstaller 6.3.1 > ULPScontrol.

This is a small application that allows to activate or deactivate the ULPS of the installed driver. This is very useful for overclocking through external programs that adjust the voltage.

The above notes come directly from Atiman and i just translated these. 

Something i would like to mention ones more... 
The most efficient usage of the uninstaller is when you use the NEXT GENERATION uninstalation procedure, to remove everything (application profiles, driver, sdk, installation folders etc). This works automatically AND now supports even the complete removal of modded drivers.

Lastly, dont forget to remove your OLD cards from Device manager>view>show hidden devices menu!

Enjoy smile.gif

It's called placebo dude. Unless you are running over 60fps there's no diff over than obvious quality differences of the panels themselves.

I've never used this app, and probably never will. Regular uninstall works fine for me. Not trying to be negative but scratches it isn't broken for me?

No it's not. General PC use feels smoother.

No worries... smile.gif
I ve seen quite a few people using this program in this forum, thats why i thought it would be a good idea to share it.

Especially this version that solves issues created by conflcting registry entries etc from modded drivers!

But when you uninstall the proper way, it cleans the all important catalyst entry 4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318. And in device manager it is swapped to the standard vga driver. Just an fyi.
