in 1440p the difference for AA is very very minimal in quality, but it might differ from person to another person.

 

But again, the difference is still there, but not great.

 

You wouldnt really settle with AA off in 1440p. It would still be nice.

 

I would prefer 1440p without AA to 1080p with AA

Yeah aa not that important at higher res.... not near as important at 1080 ..... you'll be happy

Hi guys, i need some help here. I'm planning to get a new rig in this coming month with the specs stated below.

Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHZ
Asrock Z77 Extreme6 mainboard
Kingston 1333 DDR3 ram 4GB x2
Nvidia Geforce GTX690 4GB
FSP Aurum 750W 80+ Gold
WD Caviar Blue 1TB HDD
Crucial M4 128GB SSD
CM 690 II Adv B&W case
Lite-On 22x DVDRW
CM Hyper 612S cooler

I have some questions here.

1) Will the Apple thunderbolt display 27-inch run on the GTX690? Does it require special kind of motherboard or display converter in order to work together?

2) Which of the apple display is more compatible with the GT690? Apple thunderbolt display (27-inch) or the Apple cinema display (27-inch)?

Thank you very much.

1). No, you'd need Thunderbolt out on the GTX 690 which it does not have (1x Mini Displayport, 3x DVI)

2.) Thunderbolt: Incompatible Cinema Display: Fully compatible, just plug it's mini displayport cable into the available port on the GTX 690

Hey guys. I'm in a bit of a pickle. I'm in the market for a new monitor. One like this. And I want some opinions. I've narrowed it down to a few monitors, and I'm having trouble deciding which to choose from.
(NO, I don't want one of those Korean ones. Not going to deal with any possible hassles. I don't have time for that. ;])

Option 1: Dell Ultrasharp U2711 ($700-$850)
I'm sure you're all very familiar with it. It has tons of reviews, and most are positive. I'm REALLY attracted to the inputs it has, along with the four USB's. I'd probably use at least two of them at any given time. Another BIG attraction to this monitor for me is the card reader. As silly as that is, I think it would be VERY convenient. (especially since my USB one is kind of crappy and doesn't always work.) The problem is, I've heard and read some reviews saying the AG is either annoying, or just flat-out headache inducing or "ruins the screen" because it gives it a speckled loo on white backgrounds. But I am also very attracted to the stand on this monitor, and Dell's replacement/warranty policies with it. The stand in my opinion is the most beautiful looking stand I've seen yet. And I've heard great things about returns/replacements with Dell.

Option 2: Dell Ultrasharp U2713HM ("projected" to be at $500-$700)
This is the new, up-coming release version of the U2711. I thought it might be a good idea to keep this into consideration. It will use LED backlighting and be brighter. It will have all of the features of the U2711. But, from what I've heard, it will also use some lower quality components to bring down the cost. (Some internals and stand quality). If it is a bit lower quality, I'd probably just go with a U2711. But maybe they'll use a thinner AG-coating on these and it will take away from the only real complaints people have of the previous U2711 models.

Option 3: Samsung Series 9 S27B970D (~~$1,000)
This monitor has a BEAUTIFUL screen. Edge-to-edge glass. I LOVE how it looks. It also is custom calibrate before being shipped out. If the dells had a glass coating like this instead of their alleged "aggressive" AG coating, I would have just bought one of those. I really have a thing for glass screens. The thing shying me away from this monitor is I haven't heard about it's input lag time. I also really dislike the stand design. And it is does not have a card reader, also. But aside from the ugly stand, and no card reader, it seems to be a nice fit for what I'm looking for.



I recently had a 27" Samsung Syncmaster SA550 (1920 x 1080), and it had a matte screen. The screen made whites look a LITTLE yellowy with the AG, but nothing I found bothersome. I sold it yesterday to a friend (money is helping fund my new 27" monitor!) I'm now currently using a Samsung Syncmaster P2770HD which seems to pretty much have the exact same screen, in a larger bezel with more inputs. (It's one of those monitors that also has a TV tuner. The "older" ones.) It also seems to have pretty much the same AG coating as the SA550 did. This monitor is also 27" 1920 x 1080. Both panels were TN, I believe.

So, which monitor do you guys think I should go with here?
I will use it mostly for gaming. But aside from that, some graphic design. A lot of Lightroom/Photoshop for "professional" photography, and possibly some small amounts of video editing.

I also did consider a U3011 for a bit, but couldn't justify trying to shell out an extra $200 or more ($1,000 is pretty much pushing my limit as is) for just an extra 160 lines of pixels from 1440 to 1600.

I have 2 Yamakasi Catleaps (2560x1440 @60hz) and a 1920x1080 Samsung SA550 plugged into a single EVGA 670FTW clocked at 1340MHz.

I mostly play Heroes of Newerth on my setup, which is kind of a waste. I also play Tribes Ascend and Counterstrike. I have not yet been able to use the NVIDIA drivers nearly as successfully as my AMD drivers in terms of dropping the Catleaps to 1080 so I can play Tribes on all three, NVIDIA doesn't wanna let me.

I had to upgrade from my MSi 7850 Twin Frozr because no matter how high up the AMD price chain you go they never ever have more than one Dual DVI slot, and I haaaate displayport active adaptors.

Dell U2713H is a very new monitor and noone in the club has yet to purchase it, let's wait some good reviews and see how it compares with the Dell U2711. Maybe someone in the club purchases or tests it in the near future.

 

One last thing, you said you wouldn't purchase a Korean display because there could be hassles. I believe microcenter in USA sells Auria Korean Displays for like 400$, Purchasing one from them could be a less hassle.
