At 117, it starts blinking, blacking out, then coming back, then blacking out. I can still see what's on the screen, but it's unusable as far as anything other than undoing it!
At 120, with automatic timings, it just refuses to display anything.
I can get 115 FPS, but I think Vsync is messing with me, so when I tried PixPerAn, it kept jumping between 115/57 hz. Once I get that running, I'll see if the refresh rate makes much of a difference in readability.
The GTX 680 is so much better in terms of framerate on the desktop; with the HD 5770, at desktop I was skipping frames on Idle and thus couldn't really tell of the higher frame rates. Currently, I do still skip the occasional frame, but I can tell the difference in smoothness on the desktop. Not something that will make me unable to go back to 60 hz, but it's noticeable.
But gotta work now, so no more playing around with that!

I'm using these settings currently: 538

Try playing around with the numbers a little bit. If you hit 120hz that'll be perfect as it'll give you the option to get the Nvidia 3d Vision Kit. =D

Although I joked about it earlier, I don't have high hopes for 3D Vision. These panels, I think, have just too slow of a pixel response time to ensure the <8.3ms response times to ensure no cross-talk. Would be interesting to try, but I don't think I'm going to try for it unless I know it'll work. 3D Vision kits aren't that cheap*...

I'll try those settings later; as it stands, I think I can sacrifice a little resolution (3-5 lines around the sides?) to try out 120hz.

*EDIT: Says the guy who impulse bought a $500 GTX 680, $400 monitor off ebay and a $120 Ergotron MX arm.

Haha. I lost my job a month ago. Since then I got the $160 Rat9 mouse, $400 monitor, 2 $500 GTX 680's, an iPad 3, and soon to add a 3d vision kit. I'm...not too smart. tongue.gif

But that would leave a sticky monitor ? smile.gif wouldn't it be better if the sticky stuff stayed on the glass smile.gif

That's exactly what I meant. It's 8am and I haven't slept yet. tongue.gif It all stayed on the glass. None on the monitor.

For you, and the other ones who are wondering if the monitor will work with their graphic cards, just google your card :

the first link takes you to the page of your card on AMD/Nvidia site, example for the gts 250

Now go to spec and look if your card have at least one dual link DVI port (the gts 250 has 2)

If your card is not a reference one, then there is 99% chance that it will be the same, buf if you want to be 100% sure, just go check on the AIB site (asus, gigabyte ....)

It's not that simple. There are some cards with dual link DVI that will not display the BIOS or the Windows loading screen.

This is probably my last question before I make my order.

My video card's max resolution is 2560 x 1600. Having said that I'd imagine that running this monitor could create potential issues? or would I have nothing to worry about...

Sorry if this is a newb question lol

Nope, should run it great (gaming it may be a little slow FPS wise due to it having to pump out more pixels). These run at 2560x1440 so you are within your max res limit.

So I am interested in picking one of these up and I just had a few questions about it. My current monitor is an Asus VW246H which is nice but I would like to upgrade. Plus this is OCN where people buy unnecessary things all the time. I currently have an MSI 580 TFII but I haven't over clocked it because it pretty much maxes all games at a solid 40 to 60 fps. If you were to overclock this monitor is there any real advantage to getting over 100 Hz refresh rate? Also I have only seen one entry for an overclock using a 580 and that was at 67 Hz. Is this the max that the 580 can spit out? Also how much of a leap in screen quality will I get coming from my current monitor? Last question. Will my 580 have enough power and vram that the larger resolution wont nuke my current fps cap?
