I hope return shipping won't be too much on that, and considering it's only going a few counties over, it shouldn't be. The CrystalPro was about $360 shipped with tax (open box), so my savings will be $(50 - ReturnShip).
For the people who have good OC results:
Can you tell the difference between 96Hz and 110Hz, and what about from 110 to 120+?
Have you gamed for 3+ hours nonstop with the monitor OC'd without any issues?
wrigleyvillain: What up bro, pls check PM.
I gamed for an hour or two at 130hz before I sent my 680 lightning in for RMA. I've been running the monitor exclusively at 96hz on my 560ti since then (maybe 2 weeks?). No issues.
I'll see how high I can push it once I get my 680L back, but I'll probably settle on 120hz for the long haul unless I can achieve 144 without issues.
I can't really tell you the difference between 96 and or 120 since I didn't have enough time to play with the more powerful card, but I personally wouldn't bother with 110 unless you never watch 24fps content (pretty much any movie) on the screen.
I can however tell you that 96 is way
nicer than 60. Whenever a game starts dropping into the 60-70fps range, it starts feeling like 30-40 used to on my 60hz. It actually shocked me, because I thought certainly my fps must be lower to look so stutters, but I keep checking and it's consistently in the 70s range whenever it starts to feel
Even at the full vsynced 96 in games where I can achieve that, I can still notice some jerkiness in fast moving scenes, but I suspect that will be a persisting issue until we get 500hz+ screens. 120 should offer some improvement over 96 though. Then again, there is a whole sect of users out there who swear 30 is perfectly smooth and anything more is invisible, so maybe I'm just crazy.
