[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1151

post #11501 of 25969
Hi All.

I'm still debating on going for 1440p. I finally got a new computer (my wife didn't give me too much trouble smile.gif) with a Gigabyte 2GB GTX 770 so I can potentially run that resolution now.
I'm currently playing Skyrim (modded like crazy) and Tomb Raider, and was wondering if I'm going to have to go with SLI or a Maxwell card when they come out.
I understand that with 1440p, you can turn down AA a lot-- will I get good FPS if I do that and keep everything else maxed out? Or would I be back to turning down shadows (etc) again to try to squeeze out more FPS? Also, when you decrease AA, does that also reduce how much VRAM you need? I'd just be using a single monitor and from what I've read it looks like 2GB would be ok but if it's not enough, I probably would not want to shell out more $ for a second 2GB GTX (too bad combining 2GB and 4GB cards doesn't help).

thanks!

So did you use CRU? DId you restart you computer? Don't maximize your browser window when running the UFO test.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm having a problem in which when I start an episode of a TV series on HBO Go my computer goes into the static mode. Its as if you change your TV to a station that doesn't have a channel.



Everything else is working fine on the monitor... I have it at 120hz my timings are these:


Except my Vertical Front porch and sync width pixels are both 2, instead of 3 and 5.

Using my stock cable, could it be the reason?

I am not using cruI think I restarted.

Pretty sure it was working. Never gamed past 60hz before. Was playing bf4 and kept dropping the quality, the higher the frames got the smoother it felt. To me it looked like frame interpolation on an LCD tv. Is that kind of what I would expect to see with the monitor at 120hz? It had to be working because I could clearly see a difference the more I went above 60hz.

Anyways its back in the box, until Christmas. But man the thing was gorgeous. Did not see any dead pixels. Colors looked great. Super excited.

Can someone explain the downsides of these monitors not having a strobe backlight, though?

Its CRU. Your desktop and a few other things work with the refresh rate you set in the NV control panel. You have to enable it in CRU to get the full experience with every program.

Once you set it up into eyefinity or surround it will only load 1 color profile on restart. It can't load all 3.

Slightly more blur during fast motion. Basically the downside is you can only expect 120hz refresh nothing more nothing less.

Thanks.

Does anyone know if these monitors are compatible with a Radeon 7950?

Of course it is. The 7950 has a dual link dvi.
