or a non reference msi/amd 290x lightning also looks epic as well and should be great for 2560x1440 gaming smile.gif will be beast with a great over clock
Not so sure about a couple months. But it is coming eventually.

Will these monitors work with FreeSync of AMD? I think we need at least a Display Port. Although Display Ported ones are available, I do not know those monitors can be overclocked to 120hz.

just wanted to update everyone.

so on my other rig (i5 3570k + evga gtx 760) i was getting some green lines when OC'd at 120Hz

just hooked it up to new rig (i7 4770k + evga gtx 780 ti) and not a single green line to be found @ 120Hz.

will continue some testing to make sure that it is 100% stable but from what it seems is that your graphics card/drivers can have an effect on OC ability.

probably going to do a fresh install on my old computer and see if i can get it more stable. think i might be having some driver issues with that one.

Its weird how it can vary between different gpu's.

I believe that some people have had mixed results depending on the cable they used. I think that the connector on the video card could also play a role in this if it is so sensitive that a cable swap makes the difference.

It is quite odd to me that a cable would make a difference. in the pro audio world it is rare to find a cable would make any difference when using one that has average or above quality connectors.

I'm getting green lines to and I have a 760 also hmm...

Just wondering.
I know you need to use 2 CF bridges when useing two cards.
What do you do when you have 3 cards in tri-fire. Mates looking at selling his 7970, if there is a way to get around the bridge problem then ill pick it up.
post #12179 of 25893
I could never get over 96Hz until I switched over to a 3ft cable. Maybe coincidence. Worth a try.

Just a quick interjection:

If you take the time to help someone who used profanity, keep in mind their post will be removed. If you quoted them in your reply, it too must also be removed and really a waste of your time to assist that member.

Had to remove some posts recently that was a chain from original post of profanity in order to keep discussion from becoming disjointed. Just letting you guys know if you were wondering what happened.
