It's hard to say, I just went from playing at 96hz, to 60hz, and I think I could tell, but that might have also been the lower framerate due to going from single monitor 1440, to triple. Still, 96 or higher is very nice to have.

3. NO VGA gets pretty crappy past 1080p, even if it did work somehow it would look terrible.

4.
A) You should overclock to your hearts extent. It may be beneficial to have the web browsing monitor at 96hz or lower to prevent image retention on top borders of the browser.
B) This is completely up to you, i would say do a lot of reading on the potential side effects, how to fix them and then make an informed decision.
C) Not at all, graphics cards are designed for these potential scenarios.

Thanks man champion +rep
1. Yeah I was thinking they would both work because DVI-I sends both digital and analog so it should still work where DVI-D is just digital.
2. I'll try find a laptop from someone I know hopefully it has a dedicated graphics card and it will work. Not sure how to switch on and off between the integrated and dedicated though.
3. I see.
4. I think I'll do both monitors to 96hz since I'll only be running 1x r9 290 non reference when it comes out.

Hopefully my clamp on mount is sturdy enough for these 2 screens!
Can't wait to get them running. Argh the wait for the GPU's (don't even know if they're worth it now due to being AU$600-$630 for non reference when the normal cards are $500 for the r9 290, that's $100+ more for a diff cooler!) I waited so long already and the price lol frown.gif

I wouldn't pay $100 more for a non ref version. Hell a waterblock only cost me $118 us and keeps my card silent + 45-50c

I think its side effect of overclocking.

Any overclock of the refresh rate causes a gamma shift to occur. To compensate for this first optimize your pixel clock to reduce the overall shift and then use your drivers to increase the gamma curve. You can use this site for gauging the gamma and color accuracy(or buy a calibrator).

Ordered an X-Star DP2710LED from dream-seller on late Thursday night, it arrived on Monday morning. 7200 miles in 4 days, incredibly impressed to say the least. I got the Matte non-pixel perfect version and it came with absolutely 0 dead pixels and no backlight bleed whatsoever. Ran at 120hz without any problems or artifacts, however I'm hesitant to run it at 120hz for day-to-day use, and I'm thinking I will only switch to 120hz right before loading a game and just run it at 60hz at all other times in order to preserve the life of the monitor. Removed the stand that came with it and mounted it with my other 5 monitors on a mount. Overall, very pleased with this purchase. thumb.gif

why limit yourself? Enjoy your monitor at its full potential. Overclock that sucker! People here have been running theirs at 120hz with zero issues. The PCB is rated at 450hz. Just lower your pixel clock close enough to 450. Most people including myself is around 461-459. At 120hz, my monitor was at 487 pixels. I can see that causing problems down the line.

I've been running mine at 120hz with 470mhz pixel clock, via Nvidia custom resolutions. I dont use the patcher or CRU anymore. I was able to get 120hz with CRU but was getting artifacts when switching profiles in precision or using GPUZ.

Ever since I started with Nvidia control panel Ive had zero issues. And I'm running at 470mhz. I set it at total pixels of 2675x1465 anything lower It wouldn't work in Nvidia. But Im still playing around with it. So if anyone has any other ideas/setting to lower clock please let me know. Or please chime in if you think 470 is too high, I can switch to 114hz which is about 446mhz. But 470mhz has been running for weeks with no probs. thumb.gif

Hey everyone,

I've been watching 27" korean monitors for a little while, and I think I'm going to get one of these puppies to compliment my Dell sp2309w.

There's a deal on Amazon right now for the Monoprice ZERO-G IPS monitor for $300.
http://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-IPS-ZERO-G-Slim-Monitor-2560x1440/dp/B00DIGC6GO/ref=sr_1_1?t=slickdeals&tag=slickdeals&ascsubtag=vvTjcHJBEeO49epEe-4nkg0_cb2u3_0_0_0&s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1388511069&sr=1-1&keywords=IPS-ZERO-G+27

My question to all of you is what to do?
Is buying from Amazon/Monoprice worth it for whatever warranty you could have, versus buying an xstar for $300 off ebay?
