[Official] Asus PB278Q & PB278QR Thread: Read the 1st Post - Page 43

post #421 of 1502
I just wanted to come back and say that if anyone is on the fence about buying this monitor, because of the problems that others and I have had with backlight bleed, stuck pixels, etc. BUY IT. You will not look back and regret spending the money to get this monitor. Sure, you can get 3 1080p monitors for the same price, but there is really nothing that compares to this amazingly high resolution. As soon as I turned mine on the first time, it blew my mind and I was so amazed at how beautiful and crisp everything looked. Even 1080p content on this monitor looks pretty damn good. Buy this monitor, it is completely worth it.

The Asus PB278Q is $650 at tiger direct.ca right now. If you get one that has no issues ( like I did) then that's a respectable price. I had my $250 24" 1080 Samsung plugged in the other day and by comparison the Samsung really seemed pale and drab compared to the 1440.

Thats a big ask for a 580. Obviously if you can afford a titan, you mentioned one, then that would solve the problem easily. If not, the various forms of 670's around will also solve that for a reasonable price. Personally, instead of going with a single 690 i went 670 sli, which is cheaper and only loses abuto 5-105 performance for less money, but that me. It would all depend on your system and what it can handle power and PCIe wise, so please, show us your Rig!

Nah my card works fine for BO2. It usually stays at 100FPS with AA 16x. I've added my rig to my profile but I guess maybe it should be in my sig too. The only thing that really screws up the game is the blur that you can enable for aiming down the sights. That just instantly drops to 30 or lower. I'll wait for 700 series before upgrading, I don't feel like a Titan is worth more than 2 680 ATM.

I also have Samsung 24" BX2450, after days I did plug just for fun.... Yeah, I will never back to 1080p again.... and colors etc. was looking so cheap smile.gif

Can the PB278Q be over clocked to 75 Mhz for those without Titans? Or are the Titan cards the only ones allowing for higher Hz on this monitor?

Has anyone with an AMD or other Nvidia card able to over clock the monitor to 75 Hz and is it stable?

Thank for you confirming that it's possible and clarifying it can be done without having a Titan. smile.gif

To clarify, it does not 'kill your eyes' in the sense of permanently damaging them. It does use PWM which a minority of users are sensitive to (flicker-fusion thresholds, retinal eccentricity different to 'normal'). Those users may want to stay clear because they will find viewing such monitors potentially uncomfortable and strenuous.
