Dos Error means you may not see the bios screens when you start up the computer. It will appear as if the display does not work until it gets into windows and loads the drivers needed.

The list that says what cards will have dos errors has been shown to not be completely accurate some people have problems with it others do not.

One question, I think we should contact the seller to see if is possible they sell the tempered glass all by itself. If is preglue then there shouldn't be a problem for us to install it.

Why would you need to install the glass after you get the monitor?

You don't have to, he's saying that he thinks we should contact the seller to see if it would be possible to order the tempered glass separately and put the it onto a monitor that doesn't come with it preinstalled.
If you order a monitor w/ tempered glass, it comes with it preinstalled.

Go ahead!  Nothing is stopping you!  rolleyes.gif  I definitely wouldn't want it on mine, but some people like it.

I have been reading a lot of comment of people prefrering the tempered glass version AFTER they received the non-tempered version. I'm one of them and instead of buying a new monitor with tempered is easier to just purchase the tempered glass alone and install it ourselves. The problem with tempered was the dust or anything that could be behind the glass but this has been solve since in a minute we can remove the frame to clean the glass from behind.

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?

I already owned a Lenovo L220x (22" CCFL-backlit 1920x1200 PVA panel, quite nice) and the Catleap is a very significant upgrade from that, so take from it what you will.

The 580 should be able to do at least 100Hz; all nVidia cards appear to be capable of doing so (assuming you get one of the monitors that does overclock; as it currently stands anything you buy off ebay today will very likely *not* overclock). People here are both trying to source replacement boards to upgrade the non-OC models, as well as trying to convince the manufacturer to re-introduce the overclockable units. We'll see how things pan out in a couple weeks, probably.

About the advantages of high refresh, it's tough to say as some people notice more than others, but if you play PC games at any kind of moderate level you will probably notice the difference immediately in terms of extra smoothness. Rendering games at 90fps+ is obviously a much higher target than 60fps; If you're currently running the games you play in the 40-60fps region you won't see any benefit to the higher refresh rate without upgrading your graphics, dropping your settings down (keep in mind this is a resolution upgrade, too - so that makes things harder to render) or playing older games (where such a setup really shines!).

Finally got picture on my Catleap. GTS 450 seems to be working ok, bios and splash-screens too.

I got a little bleed, little glow and a little black dot. Black dot looks different when looked from different angles. Luckily its down and left. Anyway i am more than happy thumb.gif I will try to put in some serious Hz next week when i get my own rig with gtx680 biggrin.gif

edit: Tadaa: I can put at least 95 Hz with GTS 450 without too much tweaking. At 100 Hz it says "monitor does not support".

The 40-60 fps I refer to is with BF3 on ultra as well as Crysis on Ultra which are about the most demanding games I have.
Neither of which get that much play time so the rest of the time I float at 100 fps easy.
I won't be able to buy this monitor for a few months anyway so I can wait for the replacement pcb.
Glad to hear the image quality is very nice though.
