You should. The games became even more alive after switching to 1440p recently. The graphisc, the details, the beauty of 27" is great. I am glad that I did not purchase a 1080p monitor in 27" because I believe 27" deserves an at least 1440p resolution.

 

@ everyonelse

 

The 1440p resolution is a beast though. I always turn of the MSAA as i felt that need of MSAA in 1440p is not as great as 1080p or any other resolution. FXAA is doing its thing for me and I am happy with it. Last night when I played some Battlefield 3, everthing on Ultra, No MSAA, High FXAA, my memory hit 1600 levels. I believe disabling Windows Areo will take the memory levels a bit down and I will try that.

 

I also played some Skyrim last night, (it is amazing in 1440p) but as demending. I also turned off MSAA but turned on FXAA, I set eevrything at HIGH, not Ultra, and my frames were around 60 which was nice. The memory never went above 900mhz. No mods though.

 

I am really going to be adding a 2nd 670 for sure.

 

I turned off any type of Vsync, as i dont mind a little bit of screen tearing but i hate the occasional fps drops when Vsync is ON, and wanted to give Mass Effect 1 a shot, I know it is an old game but I want to play through the entire series as I never played 2 and 3, anyway, even in Mass Effect 1 i saw my FPS dropping below 60 at some cases. I truly did not expect that.

 

Not to mention that my GPU is running hotter now. I might sell my Gigabyte 670 and get one with a blower fan as I Believe 2 Gigabyte 670s with custom coolers that dump air inside the case might be way too hot in 1440p.

Added.

 

Are you thinking of adding a 2nd Gigabyte 670?

 

I am actually currently happy with a single Gigabyte 670 Windforce but might be adding a 2nd one just for the heck of it. I sometimes have dips to 40 or 50 in games and I would relly like to keep the 60fps stability as much as I can.

I would like to get another, but I don't really need to. Right now I'm not playing any games that I can't keep 60fps or higher.

Same boat. I really dont need to but it would be nice. However I am playing Skyrim and BF3 at the moment so another 670 would be nice for those games.

Might be a driver issue if you dipped below 60 on ME1. You may have mentioned it earlier, but what clocks are you running your 670 at? I got a dud of an overclocker that would only KB up to 1215. After using the ftw unlocked voltage bios i can get KB to 1254.

I am guessing so too as ME1 should be 60fps stable no matter what with a 670.

 

My 670 is a dud as well and I am currently running it at stock. Funny thing is that i had a stable OC @ 1230mhz and no problems, however when I switched to 1440p gaming that OC didnt become stable anymore. That was interesting. Now I am running at stock settings but I will be OCin mildy soon.

 

I just played some Crysis 2 with FXAA on and I averaged 45 FPS in multiplayer. The memory hit 1700mhz. Everything is at Maximum but I dont have the high resolution and the DX11 patches installed.

 

I am actually thinking of switching to a 4GB 670 or an 680. Also since in 1440p the GPUs run hotter, and if i go SLI, a blower fan might be ideal, but I love how the Gigabyte 670 is quiet.

I know I don`t have 1440p + but I'm looking for the cheapest matte monitor that's 1440p plus so the catleaps are out. Thanks.

Also with all the ocing 670s discussion I'd like to add my results. 1287 boost and +400 men right now. Still pushing it though, and as I don't have a 680 PCB card I probably won't unlock the voltage.

Lastly iARDAs have you tried adaptive vsync?
