You definitely have to debezel these things if you plan on going portrait surround vs landscape. I'm using landscape now and it doesn't bother me at all because I lap the bezels behind the center monitor. I tried at one point to go portrait as a test and that's when the bezels are really really distracting. I only played that way for about 20 minutes before switching back as it was just too annoying and there's lapping the bezels in portrait ruins the entire experience.

Definitely looking forward to the vids mate.

I have to reorder my VG248QE because I bought an open box one and it has a problem with it frown.gif.

So it will be a few days before I get a new one. I also ordered some "trim tools" to help me with debezelling. I plan to debezel, sand off the glossy finish, and then spray paint it matte black.

Did you have any problems in the debezel process? Like breaking any plastic clips or anything? The only thing that scares me is that I won't be able to put it back together.

My GTX 580 seems to be running a bit hotter now in idle, and doesn't downclock since changing to this monitor recently. Is this normal?

Yes, if you're running 144 hz, your video card won't downclock all the way; it needs GPU power to run 144hz properly.

I started at the bottom because i found it had some easy access points there. I used a butter knife and flat blade screwdriver to prize open at the start but then after that i just used one hand to pull the bezel up and the other had the butter knife running along un clipping. once you get the first unclip its easy. the corners are tricky but over all i done 3 monitors and never broke a clip. Also if you do brake one there are plenty of others to take the slack. Also if you need a spare housing i have 3 here lol.

OMG Grid 2 is playable now!!!


so i went the local steel shop and was only able to get 50mm by 140mm by 6mm flat bar Aluminium. i got 6 pieces and will drill and tap them tomorrow. im hoping that the liquid nails works and can support the weight of the monitor. i wonder if i can tig weld the back of the panel? just fuse a couple of spots on each side. hmm

Hi guys got my 144hz monitor yesterday, what gpu do you guys recommend, Im thinking of buying the new GTX770
post #1578 of 2231
People are talking up the 780 but for a single monitor I think the 770 would be fine. Im always one to overkill something though and would go a 780 just to know I can get 144 fps at max settings in 99 percent of the games.

How long u planing on keeping the card?

Actually I guess 770 is my only choice dont have enough for 780 and will be keeping the card for at least 2-3 years but you never know

Edit: I was also suprised that my gtx 560 ran at 144fps in some older games or less demanding games

Well I did a little reading last night and people are saying the 770 is a rebirthed 680 with a bit of sugar on top. So if its the case it will be fine. I had the a single 680 and a single vg278h at one stage and I was playing everything with ease and should easily last the distance you want. Enjoy bud!
