Yes you can but the GPU will have to do the scaling which can lead to a more stretched looking picture. I have ran my Qnix at pretty much every resolution with nvidia cards at least in which always worked as long as the GPU was selected to do scaling in the NVCP. I also think you have a good understanding of the GPU scaler, you just were not considering the graphics card has a scaler itself. The Qnix not being able to scale generally only limits you from being able to connect it to other non scalable devices(consoles, DVD players, many laptop DVI connectors, etc).

What sort of FPS were you getting in BF4 in SLI with 3 x 1440? I am the type that is happy with anything above 30 FPS and I wouldn't mind not going FULL ULTRA to do a surround setup at 60 FPS.

Also, was this at 120hz?

One more quick question. I noticed some of the ebay sellers mention the buyer having to pay custom taxes. Is this something that actually happens? How much would it cost? Thanks for all the help everyone.

Average was about 40FPS with two GTX780ti's(this is with many VRAM settings down and the rest ultra). Also one card gives me around 24FPS and three cards was 48FPS(with the power of the GTX780ti my rig may have bottlenecking at this point). And all of these average framerates would still even with settings down drop in certain areas like i said. So the 40FPS average would drop easily to 20FPS in certain parts. Overclocking the VRAM made this a bit better keeping it over 25FPS which may work since you never know your system could be better than mine thus potentially having a slightly higher average or drops(which could keep you right at 30).

Last question, was this at 120hz?

Yes i kept the refresh at 120hz for testing. Changing the refresh didn't make a difference in FPS when i tried it at 60hz and the motion was about the same. There may have been slightly more blur at 60hz vs 120hz regardless of FPS but it wasn't much.

hey guys, I've searched this thread and couldn't find an answer. When making adjustments in nvcp to say the total pixels or lines. The new changes don't stick.

In CRU, I'm able to make the changes. Do I still have to match the nvcp with CRU? Or if I mess with the timing in CRU, it bypass's windows all together? I'm trying to fix my scan line issue at 120 but it seems nothing is helping.

CRU directly modifies the EDID(well mostly) thus bypassing windows. The settings in the NVCP don't stick unless it is a new not defined resolution/refresh, any overlaps generally go back to the default settings. Even then it is setup as a custom resolution and not a native one thus not getting detected by some games and apps. It is best to test with the NVCP to make real time changes(and not restarting constantly) to find the best timings then putting those into CRU to make the timings "stick".

The trigger has been pulled. Now for a prayer to the monitor gods. Please let my monitor have no dead pixels and little or no back light bleed AMEN.
Worse than crack.
