it makes perfect sense but I don't feel like going in to an in depth explanation on how sli/xfire work (very similar) but you can certainly google all about it.

Well, then I don't understand why people want multi Titans for their 6GBs then....One would be good enough.

For power along with the frame buffer. If you have a Titan then you probably have a multi monitor setup, that's all 6GB of VRAM is good for really. With 3 or more monitors and that much power you need the 6GB so SLI'ing 780s which have 3GB won't cut it.

that's true I didn't even remember the 780's only have 3gb of memory. Much better idea to tri-fire 290/x's then imo. Well once the prices come back down to MSRP that is.

you really need to do some research biggrin.gif the reason people want multiple titans with 6gb is that if you use a say 4gb and 6gb card in SLI it will default to using 4gb of vram on each. You also need a lot of vram for high resolutions.

Some of the things that I find most impressive in this monitor are the contrast, black levels, and color accuracy. I use Lagom.nl to do my monitor calibrations and this is the only monitor that I've used that I've been able to differentiate all of the black level and white saturation tests. Also, in the contrast test, after slight saturation and individual (R,G,B) color gamma tweaking, having every color bar at equal luminosity from top to bottom. The improvement in black levels alone is amazing. There are things I had thought were black previously (on things I've worked on) that turned out not being so once viewed with this monitor, revealing they were indeed a lighter shade. There's no going back for me. Even though they are a gamble, if I need more monitors in the future, these will be at the top of my list and also in my recommendation to others. The smoothness when overclocked is also just awesome... 60hz feels slow now, heh.

I have the stand from an Dell 2407wfp monitor I have. You can buy them on Ebay fro 12-40 dollars like this one:

If you buy a stand just double check that the weight of the monitor the stand is made for if close to the Qnix. This will ensure the spring tension in the stand is close to correct so it wont bottom out.

I explained how to adapt the stock Dell stand to the VESA mount here:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1384767/official-the-korean-pls-monitor-club-qnix-x-star/11630#post_21452437

You can get the VESA plate from here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400628424577?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

If you add all of the above stand components up, it comes to $ 37.86 with shipping !!!

It works great !
Thanks man appreciate it! +rep

What are a few good triple monitor stands that would support the xstars. No clamp stands as I have a glass desk.

Ok guys about ready to pull the trigger on another GPU. Just been waiting and reading.. Im still concerned about a 780 ti's 3gb of ram and 386bit vs the 290x 4gb of ram and 512bit.. Im kinda thinking of the future here for the next year or 2... I really dont want to run out of ram if you know what i mean... Opinions are welcome.. I was on the amd side for quite some time. These 780ti classies look nice tho.. But will mantel destroy the advantage the 780ti has over the 290x's as of right now.. Sorry I know i been going on and on about this but im the type that always ends up thinking i made the wrong decision.. Well at least i dont think that way with my B E A Utiful qnix 27" inch im got infront of me right now.. I just want to be able to have super high fps and still crank up all the details and get close to 100fps in most games.. THATS WHAT I BOUGHT THE MONITOR FOR RIGHT!!!!!????

Anyways, I just want to have 1 gpu, no need for 2 really.....

the 290 is definitely a better buy at MSRP. The problem is getting it for MSRP right now
