I kept my eye on MicroCenters website for open boxes on these. One showed up and boom picked it right up.
My build is complete.
Thanks for the welcome

We always upgrade our GPUs and be happy with GPU usage but what really really shows the beauty of those GPUs are the MONITORS we game on. 1440p + IPS panel is one of the best gaming setups in our genre. It will not be outdated soon as well so we are safe for the next 2-3 years for sure. Probably even further.

 

And the GPU usage rise in your situation seems just about right. Switching to 1440p from 1080p made me lose FPS about 30-40% depending on the game.

 

Well some games I play are stable 60 fps in 1080p or 1440p, but in 1440p the GPU usage increased roughly 30-40% as well.

 

1440p screen is an eye candy.

 

I was a sucker for 120hz gaming and I still admit that 120hz gaming is smoother than 60hz. But 1440p looks so much better than 1080p so I can not see myself downgrading to 1080p again.

 

However I am thinking of getting a 3D monitor to enjoy 3Dvision as well.

 

It has so many issues but still some games are fun with it.

Oh forgot to ask. This is the 1st Qnix in the club. How is the build quality? How is the stand?

I will also play Alan Wake sometime. I played it a bit in 1080p, liked it but everything maxed I just got 60fps stable. I am sure I will have to turn of AA in 1440p.

Had everything maxed, MSAA x8, v-sync 2 frames, pre-frame gpu buffer 3 frames, everything else on/high, got 30fps and ~33-42 without v-sync. With current drivers without proper sli profile for FC3 I had to use nvidia inspector to get it working. I personally wouldn't take MSAA above x2, vsync looks like it locks the game @ 30fps(?) other than that when vsync is disabled and MSAA is at x2 I get constant 60fps. Would like to see the game in the next official drivers, should do quite well.

Just wondering, I know about the $300 korean 1440P monitors + I'd rather have a 30" because its 16:10 and not lame ass 16:9. I Just bought a 7970 and on a 24" 1200P monitor its just not pushing it at all.

The only thing is it might not be 60 fps but i cant tell the difference between 35 fps to 60 fps probably because i was gaming on a console for over 20 years lol. I guess it's time to overclock my gtx 670

I remember seeing Leonidas monitors from Yamakasi for $600 They are 1600p.

Yeah. I am one of those guys who can tell the difference between 50 and 60 fps unfortunately so I always try to take advantage of 60fps gaming.

This is the first time I played RAGE therefor I never had an experience with its problems before.

 

The 2 issues I have are either sound missing at times or, late texture loading. It roads in 1 sec but gives me the console feeling. Happens only when you enter an area. Once the texture is loaded, they will stay loaded until you leave the area. I had this issue with Borderlands 1 before.

 

Other than that, I put 10 hours into the game and so far no graphical issues. Everything works just fine. I am guessing that the developers patched the game well and the Nvidia drivers are very nice as well.
