As far as one 780ti with three of these screens that sounds crazy to me. A big part of these monitors for most is the high refresh rate. With one 780 I play on high with no msaa to try to stay around 100fps. Triple the resolution with only 20% more GPU power. I bet you'd be averaging 30fps or something like that. Which is not a very good experience.

I disagree, the main reason to get this monitor for me is the 1440 resolution, by no means the refresh rate. That's just a bonus. Different people have different goals, and for FPS you want high FPS. But if you like adventure games, mmos, etc the immersion gained from surrounding yourself with the game world can't be matched by extra frames per second or a few minor effects turned down. Besides, you don't need AA at this resolution.
I said a big part is the refresh rate. The resolution being the main reason. There are other Korean monitors out there but there are so popular because they overclock.

I understand not all games need high refresh rate. But regardless of the screens if your struggling to even avg 30fps in any game imo thats not a very fun experience.And I agree with your comment about AA thats why I said I don't use it.

Is there any difference when playing at 60 fps @ 60hz vs 60fps at 96hz? I overclocked my X-star to 96hz but most of the modern games I am playing simply can’t take full advantage of the 96hz. For example at 96hz, Tomb Raider varies from 80ish fps to ~65 fps, so there are noticeable stuttering as compare to just capping the framerate at 60fps, which feels smoother because the framerate does not vary too much and is a consistent 60fps.

However, at 96hz, shooting games are more smooth.

I am just deciding whether I should stick with 96hz or revert back to 60hz. Are there any negatives at higher refresh rate with these Korean PLS panels? Like increased response time or input lag or whatever?

Thanks, I read somewhere that increased refresh rates on these monitors also increases response time.

One quick question though. I just tried to load bf4 and got a black screen. Anyone else have this issue. Reinstalling now to see if that helps.
