Samsung S27B970D run by a Sapphire Vapor-X 7970.

Edit: Sorry will add pictures when I get a chance.

As a side note I'm new to 1440p and would like to know if there is a way to change the text size on just the 1440p monitor and leave my second 1080p monitor at 100% size. Right now I have it set to 125% text but that changes both and makes the text on my second monitor huge.

I almost bought that monitor.

But the stand is far, far too ugly for me. Plus it doesn't have a card reader like the U2711

I bought it because I like the colors a lot more on a glossy display and all that left me with was this, a cinema display or a korean monitor. I personally like the stand and the fact that it isn't as thick as some of the other 1440p monitors out there. I have no use for a card reader and would just get a usb powered one if I really cared. To each their own though.

The only reason I considered the Samsung is for the glass. I prefer glass myself. But the U2711 is beaufitul in my opinion, and had too many features to pass up. Especially for it's price compared to the Samsung.

(I wouldn't have opted with a cinema or Korean either.) I've had several USB powered card readers, but they've all had some sort of issues. I'm hoping the card reader in the U2711 is quality. I'm sure it will be.

FOR sli reference designs tend to be better by the way.

@ everyone else.

After using 1440p in internet surfing, i just wished that more sites were optimized for 1440p. 

You have all these emypty space left and right. I hate it.

It's not that bad actually, I mean ok this screenshot looks bad but considering how wide the screen actually is it might be more annoying to move your head at each line break wink.gif Granted mine is 5400x1920 so a bit wider than your single 1440p screen. Also, I must point out that as these are IPS screens then work excellent in portrait mode. 1440 wide and 2560 high works very good even with sites fixed for 1024 width. All you need for that is a suitable VESA mount which cheapest wallmounts that are actually useful going for as low as ~15$.

Edit: I must add that having ultrawide screen works well for all those 57 tabs I have open in my webbrowser wink.gif

i was thinking of going to 27" soon
So I'm curious to know,
i play bf3 maxed out, and have 2 monitors. i don't run much in the background, just TS and maybe steam or something.
will my 580 1.5GB cards cry?
i wouldn't want less than 60FPS, currently at 1080p can easily get 100-120FPS playing.
what do you guys reckon?

EDIT: yes, i did see the post about VRAM, i was wondering about 2 monitors.

I would speculate (as I don't play myself BF3) that you should be fine as long as you lower the AA level manually to x2. A 1440p screen is approx 3.6 megapixels while a 1080p screen is about 2 megapixels so you should hit at approx 55% of your current frame rate putting you into the ~60 fps. As long as you dont hit the vRAM wall - you know when you will as when vRAM runs out the frame rate just drops off the cliff. But by some manual tweaking of settings it can be fine tuned just fine to conserve vRAM at the expense of settings which do not affect the visual quality a lot, stuff like blur, AA, etc.

Samsung S27B970D run by a Sapphire Vapor-X 7970.
Edit: Sorry will add pictures when I get a chance.
As a side note I'm new to 1440p and would like to know if there is a way to change the text size on just the 1440p monitor and leave my second 1080p monitor at 100% size. Right now I have it set to 125% text but that changes both and makes the text on my second monitor huge.

I will be adding you when you post the picture :) Samsungs are getting more and more it seams. Is your model a newer model than S27A850D?

 

Also about your question, i have no idea but it would be a useful information and if it is possible to do what you want, i will sticky the answer on the 2nd post of this thread.

Also, I must point out that as these are IPS screens then work excellent in portrait mode. 1440 wide and 2560 high works very good even with sites fixed for 1024 width. All you need for that is a suitable VESA mount which cheapest wallmounts that are actually useful going for as low as ~15$.
Edit: I must add that having ultrawide screen works well for all those 57 tabs I have open in my webbrowser wink.gif

I am actually thinking of getting a newer stand to take advantage of the portrait mode. However there is a cabinet above my monitor, I am afraid that the monitor might not have enough room to tilt.

So I'm curious to know,
i play bf3 maxed out, and have 2 monitors. i don't run much in the background, just TS and maybe steam or something.
will my 580 1.5GB cards cry?
i wouldn't want less than 60FPS, currently at 1080p can easily get 100-120FPS playing.
what do you guys reckon?
EDIT: yes, i did see the post about VRAM, i was wondering about 2 monitors.

Well to answer your question. I believe that for BF3 1.5GB is not enough for ultra settings. I am gaming at ULTRA with only FXAA no MSAA and I can see that in some levels online i hit around 1900 GB of vram. Playing the game on HIGH should bring it down lower though. But trust me even if you game on Medium in 1440p, i would still prefer it over Ultra in 1080p. If your had the 3GB 580 than I am sure that vram wouldnt bottleneck in Ultra settings and you could game around 60fps. The performance hit of 1440p against 1080p is roughly around 30-40% as far as I can tell.

A 1440p screen is approx 3.6 megapixels while a 1080p screen is about 2 megapixels so you should hit at approx 55% of your current frame rate putting you into the ~60 fps. As long as you dont hit the vRAM wall - you know when you will as when vRAM runs out the frame rate just drops off the cliff. But by some manual tweaking of settings it can be fine tuned just fine to conserve vRAM at the expense of settings which do not affect the visual quality a lot, stuff like blur, AA, etc.

I believe he would have to lower the AA level to 0 to be honest. Any kind of AA in BF3 increases the vram considerably. The only exception could be FXAA as its performance impact is minimal.
