Immediate setting changes once 120Hz Asus VG236HE arrives?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
With my Asus VG236HE due to arrive sometime today and this being my first foray into the world of 120Hz monitors I am just wondering if there are any suggested setting changes I should make. Setting changes either in general for 120Hz monitors or changes that perhaps other owners of this display can suggest would be greatly appreciated. I have no current interest in doing anything 3D with the monitor, ill be using it mainly for gaming and perhaps some streaming movies. Ill also be using it as the main monitor in a dual monitor setup and connecting it via the DVI-D. Once again thanks in advance for any suggestions and tips.

I apologize I cannot offer any advice for this as I do not own a 120Hz monitor yet. I came across your thread and wanted to ask if you are enjoying your purchase.

I am really enjoying the monitor, the difference is pretty amazing. I was hoping for some tips with the monitor settings or my vid card to get the most out of it. Im having some issues with battlefield 3 since I got the monitor, frame rates havent been great.

I know the feeling! I just got my 120hz alienware aw2310 last week, love the thing. Apart from settings 120hz in nvcp and in windows, there isnt really anything you have to change. Obviously, the color settings will appear different from your old monitor most of the time, but aside from that, enjoy thumb.gif Now you just have to get a card that pushes 120fps biggrin.gif

Keep in mind that while your monitor supports a max of 120 hz refresh rate, they also generally support values in between. Thus if you're struggling to hold 120 fps in game x, you should see where approximately you average out at, and force your monitor's refresh rate to that value when playing that specific game. Usually most games have a setting you can change in an .ini file somewhere, or through console.

What you're looking for is the highest value both your monitor AND your GPU can hold at the same time CONSISTENTLY. If you average 120 FPS but frequently drop to to 80s or 90s, your gaming experience will be a little choppy. As an example, in the perfect world, your refresh rate should be equal to the MINIMUM FPS you have - but for modern games, that's hard.
