Yea i go wrong on that. But still wait MST hubs. Worthless if pixel clock is the 540Mhz. 720Mbit is for USB singal. sadsmiley.gif We see...

I just bought an auria 27" and have a Gigabyte 7950 WF3 coming at the end of the week.

I moved from 2 x 20" monitors (3200x1200, but only gamed on one of them) and will be replacing a GTX460. I'm loving the 27". However, after a few days, I find myself really missing the utility of 2 monitors. I'm considering buying a 2nd 27". I have a 1440x900 monitor I could turn portrait, but the bezels would be completely off and I think it would look goofy.

I don't game a ton given other commitments, but when I do it's typically stuff like Civ 5, TFC2, Diablo 3, etc. I expect to get the new SimCity when it comes out. I'm undecided whether I'll keep the Crysis 3/Bioshock games that come with the new vid card or sell them.

If I got a 2nd 27", would a single 7950 run them both? I'd only game on one of them but I'd want the 2nd monitor active for web/email/whatever. I don't ever see me gaming at 5120x1440.

Great thread - I spent a couple of days reading the entire thing earlier this week.

Thanks in advance!

If it can game one, there will be no problem leaving the second on desktop. It's what I do since bezels drive me INSANE in games.

Well if you aren't going to count 1800x1350@85hz then meh on you!

I can also play at 2048x1536@75hz....but I prefer the higher refresh rate.

After getting my 120hz pcb installed in my Catleap, I feel like it's the best thing I've ever bought, electronics wise, gaming nirvana, my 1080p 120hz panel is so sad and lonely now that it's been delegated to solely being used for temp monitoring

How you think my Samsung monitors on the floor feel. It's like ok out with the old and in with the new. If only switching wife's and girlfriends where this easy. Don't get mad at me ladies, I'm just saying biggrin.gif

I'm completely satisfied with dual 670 4GB cards ... in fact, at 1440p, I've found that reducing key attributes in game (AA, AF, FXAA, etc.) counts for nearly zero noticeable quality degradation and yields huge FPS gains. 1440p means a whole new set of tweak variables compared to 1080p.

A heavily modded Skyrim install (with .ENB and all) is the only thing that gives my SLI 670's a challenge here and there. But even that can be remedied by using reduced depth of field and low to no AA. With a optimized ENB and mods, my Skyrim stays pegged at 60fps (I use Vysnc) almost 100% of the time ... and it looks insane.

As an experiment, I tried running everything maxed at 1080p and it ran way smoother but it looked like standard VGA after playing at 1440p for so long. Completely intolerable...

Metro 2033 pushes the cards pretty good too but not like the modded Skyrim...

Nothing else I play even makes them work, really. Borderlands 2 is generally 120+ FPS maxxed ... Syndicate (which was kind of laggy with a single 670 4GB is a completely new game now with like 200fps average and zero noticeable lag) .. CS:GO is ridiculous ...

...

So yeah ... no upgrades to early/mid 2014 for me ... and since I always play games well after their release, and only a few at that, I might even make it through till 2015. Only real interest in future games for me is Dragon Age 3 ... so depending on how that game runs?
