post #20541 of 29735
I think the question should be:
How is your GPU going to do 1440p @120hz lol. I think you guys are missing that point.
Personally - it's better not to have a bottleneck and currently I have a 60hz IPS bottleneck.
The ONLY monitor that's in the horizon for me is the Korean 1440p. Why?
Because it can do 90hz+, it's an IPS display, it's at 1440p.
Then the ONLY thing holding me back will be my GPU. So realistically, this is the best option for most people. Get a 1440p monitor and game, but do bear in mind your GPU!

Thus I'm holding out right now - either I'll go a single AMD/Nvidia card (with DX12 vs Mantle soon to be interesting) OR get a cheap GTX680 to SLI it with my current one.
I really want to move to a higher FPS monitor and better resolution. The only thing holding it back is my GPU, no way will it be able to do 1440p at ultra at over 60FPS. I could reduce the quality, but not sure I want to do that either. So if it going to be an upgrade, it better be a full blown upgrade for me, not an incremental one: New GPU (or SLI), New monitor, new (higher) refresh rate, new (higher) resolution

A lot of it is down to the individual as well and perception, even placebo. I have always run @96hz on my 1440 because I cant tell the difference from 96hz to 120hz, I have just re-tested again and overclocked further as not done it for a long while, will play tonight@120hz and see if I feel any more " smooth". May help me out as been playing terribad for 2 days lol.

Lol that video a page back was hilarious. Reminds me of the days when I used to LAN with Half Life in Sven-Mod, we'd do the same sillyness.

It also reminded me...
Last time I tried it the MAV was immune to any kind of AA missile. In the video it showed the missile circling, I had a near max range Igla, multiple lock ons, look like it explodes on the MAV and nothing.
A couple plinks with the pistol quickly killed the MAV.

Reducing quality from Ultra to other seems counter-productive after increasing resolution personally speaking. Some of the post processing is not necessary, and lately, despite getting good/high frame rates (I do need about 30 fps average higher) but I question to myself do I need Ultra quality in multi-player, some of the effects and blurring are more distracting than anything. Maybe recording a video for showing off to others and making screen shots is one thing, but competitively playing may have me turning down settings for better FPS/frame times.

In regards to your setup, I am not sure 680 SLI would get you the desired frame rate in multi-player you seek. I am barely hitting averages of 90 FPS myself with 780 Ti SLI and overclocked at the resolution. My CPU would supported an average of 153 FPS if my GPUs were capable of getting there, but sadly are not.

It is good enough for me however as this and Crysis 3 are the only two that struggle. Everything else runs phenomenally, including BF3.

Absolutely agreed - everyone's eyes are actually slightly different. Perception of what I find acceptable and like might be different from yours smile.gif!
For me: When you go IPS you never go back.

glad you enjoyed it - we seriously had so much fun!
I was the first in the server with raider tongue.gif

What made me chuckle is how "LevelCrapGaming" joined the server as an admin. No I'm not kidding, look towards the end and that was his name (or someone else) we laughed at it in TS hahaha

God damn bro 780tis in SLI and no higher than 90!?
What's your setup? By that I mean - how many monitors, what res and what settings in game (res scale too) - nice PC btw (in your sig) - would be somewhat of a dream to get that.

I'm holding out as well. When I upgrade it will probably be the entire system, in a year or so. The next gen cards may not require SLI to adequately drive a 120 Hz 1440P monitor. If I need to SLI, I will... thumb.gif

In fact, I might be going to an Nvidia event at the end of April and the rep told me Gsync will be made by different manufacturers, like BenQ - so it will be most interesting.

QNIX's drop 0 frames at 120hz, tested by blurbusters.com

its because it has a special PCB that can run 120hz.

You got that right.

I have patched but not had chance to play yet.
