My girlfriend is actually buying me one for Christmas, I just gotta give her the link to the one I would like. Would you recommend dream-seller, or ipsledmonitors.com

-New to OC.net, Looks like a great forum!

I called ipsledmonitors.com 2-3 times but never heard back. If I lived in that area, I would check out their clearance items.

 

Dream-seller X-Star DP2710 Matte is $279 with free shipping compared to ipsledmonitors.com $339 + $20 shipping.

 

I recently bought two from dream-seller. No dead pixels, minor backlight bleeding, haven’t overclocked.

 

Below is link to an X-Star review:
https://teksyndicate.com/videos/x-star-dp2710-27-2560x1440-samsung-psl-panel-led-matte-screen-monitor-overview

 

The review guy preferred the X-Star over the Qnix and recommended dream-seller.

 

Plus: Can get $41.99 SquareTrade 3 yr warranty on X-Star DP2710 Matte with dream-seller so total would be $321 with warranty.

I ordered a x-star from dream-seller.
TBH he is the only one who replies to messages on ebay(well he replies in a way you can comprehend)
I can vouch for him.

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.
In the words of a wise man, "I've got information man, new **** has come to light"

I'm checking out the benchmarks, but the quad GTX 780 is scoring way better, as is the triple GTX 780. Check out the new benchmarks!

Another thing, why the heck do you have three R9 290xs? XD Did you have a loaner or something?
I've also heard pretty awful stuff about crossfire (and sli for that matter). Can you actually use all three cards consistently with different games? I Doubt that you would need to though!

Im getting matte;my seller (dream-seller on ebay) told me that only matte(AG coating) and tempered glass on matte are being produced by X-star/Qnix.
Some sellers might have old stock of glossy (no coating or glass).

About your gtx 680 well depends on what you play/plan on doing with your monitor...

Most of the guys here bought from EBAY afaik

So I overclocked to 96hz and I thought I noticed a difference but now I'm not so sure it's actually running at that and not just placebo. In all games, it still says either 60hz or 59.95hz and doesn't offer a 96hz resolution as an option. Is this normal? Does a game have to specifically support a refresh rate? I see 96hz in both windows resolution settings and the nvidia control panel, but not games.

Well does it lock at 96 fps when you use vsync? I've actually never looked at the refresh rate of my monitor in a game. Just use fraps and turn vsync on.

Ive heard people say that the glossy looks brighter and has better colours compared to the matte? My setup is in a room with not much light so would glossy be better for me? As to what id be using my monitor for is mainly gaming and Internet browsing etc I play all types of games mainly 3rd person batman, tomb raider, black flag but I do like racing games nfs etc ive only ever gamed on a 1080p 60hz monitor I didn't really wanna upgrade until maxwell but if I cant hit 60hz at full settings I may have too. Thanks

Glossy ie a screen without matte(AG coating) or tempered glass would be brighter and more colourful for sure.Its just that most sellers don't have it anymore ....
