[Official] 1440p and Above Gaming Club (1440p+) - Page 277

post #2761 of 6172
I love CPU Gaming because i play at 1440p and even in 3D Vision. But on the first person shooter games there are to many hackers and cheats. i cant enjoy a game when people are doing this. I just hooked my Xbox 360 up to my ASUS VG278H 27" 120mhz monitor and i was dominating last night! i was a consistant 1.5 to 1. 7 K/D ratio. Its a big jump the input times from my samsung HD TV to the Asus.

Great job. 680 SLI will give you better performance than a single Titan. Enjoy the new GPU bro thumb.gif

Actually I will have to clarify this in the OP. The reason I started this club to encourage people to know about 2560x1440p or 2560x1600p IPS monitors and I really want to stick to that. Surround is only welcome if there is a single 1440p or a 1600p monitor in the setup. Yes we have folks that play at higher resolutions than 2560x1440 via 3 1080p screens, but there are already eyefinity or surround clubs for those players.

 

I also allowed 3 macbooks to enter the club, but I guess I will stop letting it to happen because after all this is the PC gaming forum.

 

BTW out of curiousity what kind of a monitro are you using with that resolution?

You had the only 660 in the club bro :)

 

Enjoy your new 680. Will be a better GPU at the end.

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!

Welcome to the club and added thumb.gif

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?

thumb.gif

670 4GB SLI is my dream too. I was going to purchase it last week but decided to grab myself a Cosmos II case instead. The case is amazing and I wont have to get another one for a very very long time which is good. I will grab the other 670 later in April probably.


Even a single 670 is a great GPU with 1440p resolution but I really need the 2nd one for Crysis 2 and 3, Far Cry 3 and probably many upcoming games.

 

I will also not be upgrading until summer 2014 when I get an SLI setup. I will skip the upcoming Kepler and focus on the next set that Nvidia comes with.

 

Also I will grab a PS4 at the end of the year and the exclusive games will be a distraction for me from PC gaming a bit. However I will still get multi platform games for PC. Thats for sure. I really hope Watch Dogs come out for PC.

I will be grabbing a 3Dvision 2 monitor in the future probably. Some of the games are just way too fun in 3D. BTW playing on a gaming monitor is a much better improvement than playing on a TV. No matter how great TVs are, they are always going to give you lag. TVs are best for watching TV and monitors are best for playing games (consoles included)

 

Now I wonder if PS4 will have Dual DVI input so I can connect it to my Yamakasi. If not, than nothing I can do and will connect it to my Samsung 3D TV.

uhhh.... the GTX 680 4GB is a piece of crap. IT artifacts at STOCK clocks. Damn it. I STILL have that 660 ti, i still keep my title of only 660 Ti in this club!

You have no idea how dispiriting it is when that new GPU craps out right out of the box. IT SUCKS.

Or, i explain:

It crashes every time it loads a Crysis 3 level. EVERY time at stock specs.

In Painkiller Hell & Damnation, damned weird purple artifacts are shooting all over the place, there's specklish squares all over the place, it's a disaster.

Did you try several drivers?

 

I guess you might have a bad GPU too. GO for a RMA.

 

meanwhile next time I update the list, I will switch yours back to 660ti if you want.

 

Or should I wait until you RMA the card and see if you keep it?

Lord, i tried 310.90, 314.07, 313.96, all sucked... All of them artifacted and crashed like a crack hooker.

Update it back to 660 ti since that's what in my rig right now, this 680 is a dead goose.

RMA it and get a new one.

 

I also own a Zotac product and love it. Their customer service is great. I am sure your 680 will be replaced in no time.

Switching brands, definitaly remove all Nvidia drivers.

 

Do a regular uninstall everything, and than install the 7950.

 

If you have issues than use driver sweeper or something.

 

But first I would just remove all Nvidia from the control panel

turn off PC

take out Nvidia, place the AMD gpu

than install AMD drivers.

the nvidia control panel? or the generic "uninstall driver" in Device Manager? then boot in safe mode and install Catalyst driver?

the windows one. Not the Nvidia.

 

Well booting into safe mode sometimes causes issues. I would just uninstall via the one in the Windows Control Panel. Don't mess with the safe mode uninstallation unless you run into issues.

 

Also make sure to make a restore point in your Windows.
