Im also curious about the reaction time and input lag. The FAQ said that its okay for games like LoL or GW2, but is it really that bad? I would never call myself an professional but I am not an casual gamer either, do you think it will hinder my experience in games like Counterstrike? I just wonder cause I never payed attention to reaction times before, and who knows on what reaction time Ive been playing until now, but I havent had any problem.

I'm thinking you'd be very hard pressed to tell the difference between 1ms and 6ms for any game. In addition FreeSync should support any direct drive monitor, and I believe these are.

Something around the power of a 780 Ti (so it could be a 780 Ti, a customized R9 290X or the next 870/880 from nVIDIA).
I have seen that a Titan can achieve 34 fps on BF4 with 4xMSAA and Ultra Quality, while it pushes Crysis 3 at 30 fps with AA.
If I wuold have a 24" 4k I would disable AA and overclock by 20%, so I could get at least 40 fps on those games.

Last but not last: I don't even like BF4 and Crysis 3, so I shouldn't have any problem. biggrin.gif
I plan to play The Witcher 2, Assetto Corsa, Project CARS, Borderlands 2, Bioshock and game on sales on Steam; so nothing really heavy or impossible to push at 4K.

Other than gaming I would just do 3D and CAD, mostly blender and Solidworks.

So yes, I'm really really really uncertain on what to pick up.

Love this monitor, just having a hard time getting it to the point where I have no blue line artifacts on the screen.

They only show up in dark scenes and like dark movies.

Can someone explain that?

@Doug-E-Square I noticed the same thing on my screen. 1080p movie looks good but not great, I think it is because it is being upscaled.

Yeah I kind of figured that...lol Atleast I'm not the only one, I thought I was missing out on something here...lol I can deal with it being upscaled, just wanted to make sure. Also this PowerDVD 13 Trial says that it upscales my movies and such. I popped in a DVD and didn't really notice any difference, just regular DVD quality...lol Guess we'll have to wait until more 1440p content for movies gets released biggrin.gif

Unstable PCB. Downclock monitor until blue lines are gone. If already at 60hz then its an unstable PCB at default settings, and call seller.

What was that you posted about the new nvidia driver fixing your surround issue? Might want to share it here with others (although I think only a few run surround)

Hello, I was wondering if I may have messed up my monitor. Currently when there is a black/dark color on my monitor, it shows me previous things that have been on my monitor. For example, I am working on a photoshop photo and closed it. However, if I turned on maybe a black/dark theme program such as steam I would still be able to see a faint photoshop photo from before within the blackness/darkness of the steam's theme. Is there anyway I can fix this? Only thing I can thing that may have caused this was when I changed my Hz of my monitor and didn't restart it. Thank you.

I don't have this problem.

Possibly faulty monitor?
