You can always stick your BenQ to the wall for your consoles, and multi-task with your PC hooked up to the new Catleap/Crossover/whichever brand you go with thumb.gif The monitors that have multiple outputs (DVI, VGA, HDMI) are "known" to have some input lag, which is why many opt in for the single DVI output models. They DO have some with multiple outputs. I personally chose to go with Crossover as they seem to have a better build quality than the rest and the lowest failure rate from what I've researched.

So which monitor is the best to get? I'm looking for one that can last me 5 years just like my BenQ. Could you name a few so I could check ebay for prices with shipping?

Nope, everything was in place and nothing was lose as far as i could tell.
I did note that my pc recognizes that it's there under the display options in the control panel, but the monitor continues to show only a blank screen with the back-lite lit up.
I'm legitametly scared that I may have caused some irreparable damage. Please help guys. Any advice would be appreciated.
I really think it's something within the monitor. But I have no idea what the cable would even look like.
Does anybody have any ideas?

My roommate with a Q270 just went though this same issue. He was putting on a different stand and only the backlight would turn on. What you have done is slightly bent or broken one of the pins on this flat short light blue cable (consisting of many small little wires) that connects to the CN1 port on the PCB. The CN1 port is to the left of the revision marking on the PCB (for reference his says D-90 REV1.1) Unfortunately for my roommate his was broken beyond repair but we contacted the ebay seller and they got a quote for a new one. You might be able to bend the wires back if you look close and are veerrryyy careful.

Isn't there a dumb hz cap for SLI?

Yes caps at 100hz. Then again If you install any of Nvidia newest drivers the cap is limited to 83hz no matter the card or if in sli. Only 301.42 or older can supports 120hz.

I still run on the older drivers even though the newer ones have slight improvements.

What I find a "coincidence" is that this pixel clock limitation only came around after a couple members asked on Nvidia forums about removing the SLI limitation headscratch.gif. Instead they limited everything and to way lower clocks. Personally I think its jus Nvidia being Nvidia.

So, I got my 2703 yesterday from BCC. Not bad, colors are great. Makes my old Dell Ultrasharp 20" look like crap of course. I have very few complaints about the monitor but I can live with them, especially because I stuck in right before the price jump. Yes it has BLB on the corners that is only noticeable in a dark room with a black screen. Not sure if this is caused by the bezel or the tempered glass. For the life of me I cannot find a dead or stuck pixel on this thing. That is a huge plus! However there is some bleeding on the right hand side about 3/4 across and a bit over half way up. I haven't seen this posted anywhere yet and would like your opinion on it. Here's are some pics:



Yeah, that dark room for the BLB didn't turn out so well. Sorry.




The blue one is the only one I can't see the spot on.



I might have overdone it with the colors there but I wasn't sure how the weird fingertip size bright spot would come across on the forum. The last two are of it sitting on my desk next to my Dell 20". By the way the Dell looks super yellow now compared to the Catleap. I'm using the default color profile listed in the OP under color correction and it looks great! Now I need to figure out how to adjust the Dell so it's at least close. For now, my only complaint is the light spot. I, nor my wife, think it's worth sending back though and there's a squaretrade warranty on it should it get worse.

If i buy a 120 hz screen will there be a cable included (dvi dual link) Is this the same cable that you have when you connect your 680 gtx to a tn panel screen ? or is this a special cable?
Where can you buy this special cable ?
sorry for all those questions but i want to be well informed when purchasing monitor
Also why isn't there yet a 120 hz 2560x1440 screen out there ?
Native without overclocking

Sorry if I misread the question. So I will try to be specific and answer both possibilities.

Is a single GTX 680 capable of reaching 120hz?
The answer is yes. The Kepler series cards(ie. GeForce 600 series) have a pixel clock limit of 537mhz+ which allows you to overclock a 2B extreme to 120hz+. As to whether you would actually get 120hz depends on whether you can get stable timings (ie. no guarantee you can hit 120hz). All older nVidia cards have a pixel clock limit of 400mhz which limits them to 102hz.
As to SLi, well that is now up in the air. Allegedly (wink Hyper) you can now hit 120hz+ in SLi with nVidia cards. The exact method is only known to one person at the moment(you know who you are). rolleyes.gif

Is a single GTX 680 able of reaching 120 fps at 120hz?
The answer is no. My EVGA 680 FTW 4GB can only hit 80-100 fps on BF3 on my Catleap 2B extreme at 120hz.
However once I go to someone's house and beat the secret out of them, I hope to SLi 2 EVGA 680 FTW 4GB and have 120 fps on my Catleap 2B extreme at 120hz in time for Armored Killed thumb.gif

As to the cable, make sure it is a 24AWG cable. This is not the same cable that comes with the monitor. Most people buy one from Monoprice.

As to the Catleaps which "claim" to be able to be overclocked on eBay. They are multi-inputs and do not display true 120hz due to frame skipping. The only Catleaps which can be overclocked are the 2B extremes which are DVI input only.

As to where you can get a 27" 2560x1440 120hz capable monitor? In the interest of fairness there are actually 2 places you can get such a monitor. One is available now and the other on pre-order. But can't tell you where.

Hope this helps,

Cheer,
