Welcome to the club bro thumb.gif For some strange reason you are the first one with a 660 in the club. Interesting nonetheless...

I believe 660TI might suffer a bit in higher resolution but perhaps a 2nd one can solve this issue. How are your frame rates so far in demanding games?

AND it's 22 INCH! THIS is Retina stuff right here, only a GTX 690 with 8Gb ram will ever do.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_T220/T221_LCD_monitors

That's the future. Even in tablets with those small screens we have crazy resolution and in the future a 27" will be even much higher than it is now. But I believe GPU power is not there yet.

I'm still rocking my SLI'd GTX 275 with this display though redface.gif (waiting on the next generation graphics cards).

Welcome aboard bro. Added you to the club thumb.gif Another first GPU in the club btw. Nobody but you have 275s. How is the 275 holding? How is the scaling of it in 1440p?

As for the korean 1600p, my guess is the cost...

Nice setup. I like the idea of a 30 inch monitor supported by 2 smaller monitors for a not so demanding but still nice surround setup. I don't believe we can do that setup with our 27" monitors it seems.


Also added the pictures :)

I was reminded *exactly* of when I would get new comic books back in the day and how the glossy cover of the comic always looked so much better than the newsprint on the inside of the comic looked. That's a perfect analogy to how the TN panel looked. It looked like a newsprint version of Borderlands 2 ... all flat and dull ... whereas the PLS panel is practically "neon" like in it's vibrance, compared to the TN panel. The resolution felt stifling too at 1080p but more than anything it was like all "depth" and contrast and "pop" had been removed from the graphics.
Dang I was glad to go back to my PLS screen!

I know the feeling. I had an even worse experience. A friend invited me and the wife to their house we had fun, than he fired PS3, and played AC3 for a while because I wanted to see it. Man I wanted to throw up repeateadly. I had this funny feeling in my stomach :)

But really one you go 1440p, you can never go back. rolleyes.gif

Hey there buddy, You have an apple display? I can add you to the club if you wish.

Bad luck buddy. I hope you get a decent one soon. You unfortunately got into the unlucky 10%

 

Also to be honest, I don't think that Korean monitors have a much higher risk than an Apple' or Dell display for being faulty. I remember fellow club member kcuestag had few issues with his Dell U2711 about the stand and he was sent a 3rd monitor and the problem was finally solved than. I am sure the percentage of having a bad monitor with a reputable company is a bit slimmer but not that much slimmer. That being said, still If I was not in the process of building my sig rig from scratch, than I would probably have money left for a Dell U2711 or a like. I like how those monitors look in stand and bezel quality.

Who konws maybe next summer I might get a 1440p or a 1600p monitor from Dell, Samsung or Asus. I can always take my Yamakasi to my office.

it's not that bad actually, i OCed the crap out of the memory on the 660 TI to 7500 mhz, or about 800+ offset, gives it 180 GB bandwidth give or take.

Frame Rates are pretty good, 50-55 FPS in BF3 with no MSAA... because it's 2560x1440, AA is redundant.

Although for some reason, Assassin's Creed 3's 2x TXAA makes it go 40 FPS, but lower AA to "High" and the game runs 60+ FPS... TBH i don't see any damn anti-aliasing difference at all.


In Hitman Absolution, for ****s and giggles, i tried 8xMSAA on it, frames were crap, 15 fps and sucked up almost all my VRAM, 2950 MB.

Take off the MSAA, and it's 35 FPS or more.

Ok well what is wrong with those? I heard there great. Is 1 680 to much for the screen size? Like BF3,Black Ops 2 maxed.

I have no idea why Hitman uses so much Vram. Did anyone here in the club try Hitman with a 1.5 or 2gb Vram GPU?

 

Also your FPS is not bad at all. Better than I thought. Will you be getting a 2nd 660 later down the road though?

 

And also I agree thst MSAA is not as important in 1440p gaming but I would still like 2x MSAA or something like that. Though When I get my 2nd 670 I will play BF3 Ultra with 4xMSAA

I truly apologize for that. I am at work right now and will add you to the club in a few hours when I go home. DO you mind sending a picture of your setup? It would be nice. I will still add you to the club regardless. Sorry about that.

120hz is a very nice feature and definitely smooth but I liked the 1440p 60hz experience better in visual terms. At first downgrading to 60hz from 120hz might be disappointing but the quality of 1440p will make you very happy in the long run.

 

Also lets hear how your 680 SLI will handle Metro2033. Other games will give you no troubles.

 

And drop a picture later to be added to the club.

 

Hope you enjoy your new monitor bro.

Nothing wrong with them they a just a bit harder to find not impossible just harder
As for a GTX 680 the only 2 games i cant max everything out with is GTA 4 and Wargame European Escalation
I have never played either BF3 or Black OPS 2 so i cant say if those will run in 1440P with everything maxed out
I think they can if you dont have all details and AA to max
