Does that perk really justify the 800-1100$ price tag though? wink.gif

Probably.

Cause I had a stuck pixel once on the lower right hand corner of my monitor that you could only see if you looked for it...and I always did. I'm really OCD about that.

Mine arrived today. It is absolutely beautiful - I am so glad I chose this monitor over the u2412m or a 120hz TN panel. Only gripes are the stand and the fact that the monitor is tilted to the right. I just put some cards underneath the stand and it's fine now but would be better if it was even.

So happy I purchased this thumb.gif

Same question here, just want to know what to expect tongue.gif How about 2 6970's in CF (with my i5 2500k OC'ed to 4.5)?

I am currently playing BF3 and Witcher 2, both max settings and AA @1080p. Ubersampling is off on Witcher 2.

On BF3 I get 70-90 fps, and I have never seen it drop below 70. Witcher 2, I get 70-100 and it only drops down in the 60's during a very intensive scene.

Would like to know how much of a performance hit I should expect going from 1080p to 1440p smile.gif

Holy crap.

I picked up two GTX 670's only to discover that the board I chose was only a single PCI-E slot frown.gif

Anyways, 40 fps is hardly bad. I will save some money and grab one, it seems.
I have the gigabyte wind force. mine boost clocks to 1201mhz stock eek.gif

I started running out of vram in a bad way going from 1200p to 1440p with my sli 470s . 1.24 GB Is not enough to max out bf3. I don't know if it's just that or just not enough graphics performance with the 2 470s . single 670 gets the job done tho.

Well both my cards have 2GB VRAM should that be an issue for me? I knew I needed more than 1.5 GB for most games, so that's why I went with 2 GB cards.

I had a few questions about this display for those who already own one. I'm holding my breath for a 120hz version from that other website.
How is this monitor for fast paced FPS gaming? How does it compare to a 120hz TN panel in gaming (specifically Battlefield 3)?
I plan to game a lot on this so this is important for me.
Can the display do 3D? Again I plan on getting the 120hz version.

Theoretically it could do 3D

BUT

there are no 3D-Vision certified drivers which are required for it.

So I just received my two additional monitors, and I must have the worst luck of all. One has anti-glare which won't match my first glossy display, and the second one (which is glossy) failed ten minutes in. It also had a warmer white point so now I don't know what true IPS is because the color profiles were the same for both monitors (the anti-glare and failed one both have built in speakers which might mean different circuit boards and in turn different color reproduction). I know some people would love the anti-glare one, but I don't have enough Rep to sell it in the marketplace...

I took a picture of all three monitors, and I was hoping if someone would tell me how to fix the third one (I would reread the entire thread but I'm pretty tired atm), so far tried different DVI-D cables and ports on the 7970 graphics card. Apologies for the bad photo, didn't really have time to adjust camera settings or spend time in Photoshop because I was so pissed at the seller.

who did u buy ur monitor from? i got it from green sum and was DOA as well - smoke came out when i connected the power and smells burnt.
post #4470 of 11298
Who's the seller? gotta ask for RMA I guess.

As for the monitors themselves, it's not really the sellers' fault, for example green sum doesn't open the monitors himself. It's the manufacturer's fault, he's just there to handle the RMA if something goes wrong, so I kinda hope you got him or BCC for a smooth RMA process.
