Thank you for your reply, I was worried to have a defective screen but you made feel better about it biggrin.gif

Yet I'm a little shocked not so many people complain about this.

So hes returning hia and getting a qnix. He lives on bf3 and bf4

Just chiming in thats all not saying ones better than the other.

Ok so its def a color dif all 4 others show the same color set gonna try calibrating if not ill return it my gloss obe is still sharper than the tempered lol its noticeable so im still betting matte.

I love your wallpaper, instantly grabed it on google image, I now have the same thumb.gif

120hz on these PLS is not the same as 120hz on a tn. That is for sure. LB is it a different story. I've been using a 120hz display for quite some time (without LB) and the difference is noticeable. There is more blurring on these displays. If I had to put a figure on it. I would say 60% blur for 100hz+ PLS. 100% being 60hz lcd. 30% on a 120hz display. 0-5% on LB. This is just from my experience. Some games it's not noticeable. But CS:GO at 120hz on this display feels so choppy compared to my TN.

BUT

With all said and done, I'd take this PLS panel any day of the week. The resolution, the colours, the... everything. It's so nice lol

Linus (yes I'm quoting youtube benchmarkers, I think he's quite good) actually tested the R9 290X watercooled, and it did surpass the GTX 780 on air. I guess you could watercool the R9 290X, with a cheap cooler, and go slightly over the cheapest GTX780's price. I'd still go with the GTX 780 though. If I pay premium, I want the premium drivers & UI!
I've actually had quite few problems with the ati drivers. But the interface is just ridiculous. I actually wasn't able to press the freaking apply button for multiple months!
Yeah 780 all the way.

Or you could OC 3x R9 290x's On stock cooling and beat 4x 780 ti's. personal story-

and my OC is very mild compared to what other people are doing, not to mention AMD drivers have stepped up quite a bit, Nvidia....yeah not so much.

Qnix 2710 pixel perfect matte from Overclockmonitor. 96, 110 and 120Hz all with no problems. Zero stuck/dead pixels. Slight backlight bleed from low right corner.
Works fine with my 6950 or R9 290 with bundled DVI.

If you can. Go for the evga classified. Used, they're going for low 500ish shipped or craigslist.

Yes that would be my choice if I got my pick.We'll see what happens when I get the cash. I will just be air cooling. Classy would be the best but I would like any EVGA with ACX cooler.
