Dropping down to from 2560 1440p Monitor to 1920 1080

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I bought the Cross Over Q 27 inch, 2560x 1440 and It has too many issues. When I first got it the right side of the screen seemed darker than the other half now its the opposite. And on top of that after so many minutes on the computer the whole screen will go alot dimmer , then out of no where the regular color will come up.

On top of that I'm finding it to be way to hard and mainly grossly expensive to find GPU set that will give a steady on maxed out completely newer games that are out right now. I don't want SLI and honestly that would hardly give a steady 60FPS on maxed out game like Crysis 3 and the price of 2 titans is just out of the questions, one thats a different story but not 2.

So my question is what is the nicest, best looking and playing monitor @ 24 inch I can get for 1080?

You do realize you can run a game at a non-native resolution.
Also most games can be played at 1440p with a GTX670 or similar caliber card fairly well. Perhaps not with AA but...

I'll admit I mostly stick to SC2 which is easy to max out.

There are a few monitors 144hz and 120hz that can me optimized to run more smoothly than others, granted it takes a nvidia card because the settings to optimize the monitor are from the nvidia panel.

I am not sure of the exact models but the 120hz Samsung panels seem to be the best.

Well honestly don't let one bad experience spoil 1440P for you, as it's really quite nice. Trying to find a really high quality 1080p panel is going to put you in quite a quandary. If you want to try your hand at 120/144hz gaming, the VG248QE from Asus is as good as it gets right now for high speed motion. The only problem is the color quality is really lacking compared to IPS/PLS. Speaking of IPS, it's also hard to find a 1080p IPS that's not an IPS-E (which is lower quality than what you have now). It's basically just a tough situation. There's a really good model from Eizio that is probably the best quality 1080p panel out there, but it's close to $500 (I'm sure someone else can list the model).

As for graphics horsepower needed to max games at 1440p, just try using less AA. The pixel density is higher so the natural smoothing effect without any AA is higher. Or try post process AA, it works really quite well on high resolution screens. You'll run into the same horsepower problems trying to drive 120FPS in games to get that glorious smooth refresh rate on a 120hz panel, except the penalty for not using AA on 1080p is far greater.

Well its not that the resolution isn't beautiful it is, its the fact this monitor keeps going dim and then bright again on its own. I don't know what the issue is.

I'm just looking for the best looking 1080 monitor 350 dollars or lower.

Under warrenty? Not familiar with the Cross Over's... is that a korean IPS? Can understand not wanting to ship it for warrenty replacement if that's the case...

This and the required GPU power to max out games on 1440 is the reason i am considering going back to 1080 yes.
