Also saying sorry for helping is just trying to setup a victimized outlook thus demonizing me, not appreciated, and doesn't help anyone. I just explained my comment that was all. Honestly this should have stopped with my original comment. Please PM me any more comments like this since it does not contribute to the thread.

On a better note i have gone through the thread and grabbed each of my more informative posts. So if anyone wants the downsampling instructions, timings optimizations, pros/cons, BLB fix, review posts PM me and i will forward them to you. I am not going to repost them though they are all in this thread like 3-4 times already.

I wouldn't mind a PM because no one puts them in the original post anymore and searching through this thread is a pain in the ass.

Anyone seen this?
Thanks

I think it is a common issue when OCing monitors. This is sometimes referred to as green screen, because most of the time the video shows a constant green screen. There is a fix to it by adjusting some video playback setting. Search the thread for green screen or the like.

Actually this is hardware acceleration being broken due to the full patch. If your not using SLI you can use hte partial patch and still have flash hardware acceleration. If you have a muti-GPU setup you have to use the full patch and flash hardware acceleration will need to be turned off(which doesn't matter just about everyone has a fast enough CPU for software flash filtering these days).

Also searching flickering in this thread will give you several answers. Check all your variables, there hasn't been a simple catch all fix for this. It could be several different things and i am sure you have been doing some tinkering to get things working so make sure it isn't something simple and search.

The one time this happened to me a driver re-install worked. You having JUST patched may need to re-install drivers and patch first thing after to start from scratch and remove any possible corruption(clean install too).

Please can someone from the UK advise me on where best to purchase a monitor im really kinda nervous because I am a noob when it comes to monitors and if anything were to go wrong Im worried I wouldn't be able to sort it. Would a single gtx 680 be enough? Really wanna order asap so I can game all over Christmas with hopefully a supperd looking screen, thanks people

There is no "best" place, most places are the same however if you can get the squaretrade warranty or don't mind spending a little more and buy from newegg. Also i recommend reading through a lot of the thread(especially the OP) and becoming NOT a noob before buying. It is always best to know what you are doing before you do it. Lastly, a GTX680 should be fine but you may want to consider in the future moving to SLI to maintain 120fps in some games(depending on the requirements of games you play).

When i had 570s in SLI i was able to keep 60-80fps in most games and some would stay at 120fps. A GTX680 is pretty much equal or slightly better that 570s in SLI and equal to a GTX770 which i have both owned. When i had two GTX770s in SLI it pretty much took anything i could through at it except for VRAM. 1440p needs at least 2GB of VRAM and 3GB would be ideal.

I am not from the UK but newegg will ship there. If you go ebay then you may have to pay VAT but it will get there.
