See, that's what I'm after and I swore off SLI a long time ago so I don't know if I want to make the leap to such uber resolutions just yet.

I'm not sure if immense popularity of this display will change things, but it's possible that they don't currently plan on selling these anywhere but microcenter..


Tax + shipping brings the cost up to $462... which is quite a bit more expensive than the ebay displays.
The DisplayPort addition is quite nice and no blacklight bleeding reported so far.
Plus the ability to return to microcenter and the two year warraunty (1+amex extension)

Will have to think it over.

return the 670, get a 680.

Overclock the 670.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/598?vs=550 (added 7950 since I have an oc version of it and think it'll run the games I play fine). Turn off AA/put af to 8x, and remember 2560x1440 has half a million less pixels to drive than 1600p.

What games do you generally play? I'm more a diablo/mmo/tf2/portal person, so my card would be fine at those resolutions.

HEB like the supermarkets/grocery stores?

I forgot about amex warranty extension. That just sweetens the deal.

That would be my guess.
I wouldn't expect to find these there though. My guess is that they sell their TV line there.

thumb.gif Hey, if you're coming out to Vancouver, get me one wink.gif

Seriously, though, awesome idea, considering that resolution biggrin.gif I checked, and there's a Microcenter in Detroit and actually two in Chicago (here's one of them).

The best part is if you can make your trip last ~7 days or so, you can probably get that monitor mostly duty-free when you come back in, if you don't manage to "slip it in" as a personal item. wink.gif

With the higher pixel density of this 27" versus your 32" it will likely look better even without AA turned on. Also 2560x1440 resolution gives you a lot more desktop realistate to work with so you can multitask even better. With my 2560x1600 U3011 multiasking is a breeze. Why are you using a HD TV as a monitor anyway?

I figure since I'd be coming into the states with a computer, leaving with a monitor and a computer wouldn't really set off any red flags. Unfortunately I only go as far west as Edmonton frown.gif.

lol because it's huge. Believe it or not it looks pretty good, better than some other monitors I have in my house. It seems it was made with PC use in mind so it works great. I've considered the pixel density vs AA and I'd likely be okay with it but I'm not sure I'd enjoy downsizing. Also we haven't got any feedback about display lag yet. Multitasking isn't a huge deal to me, I usually just have 1 browser window open anyway.
