Some clam high Quality cables make no difference as its a digital signal (1 or 0) as you have quite rightly pointed out ...however i use a high quality cable and can clock stable at 130hz using this cable..who knows if its my cable that allows me to hit 130hz stable but i can!

Thanks. I guess I'll have to do it with the default timings then.. @96 Hz.

Pretty weird though.. Modifying timings give me the white banks in Minecraft. Do you play Minecraft tooQ? Could you test if you see them too?

Now I am pondering getting a new GPU for my new 1440P display. thinking.gif I run mITX, so dual GPUs is out of the question. biggrin.gif Was thinking about a R9 290, but which one? biggrin.gif The pricing is getting back to normal, which I am happy to see. biggrin.gif

Excellent choice! Reference cards run hot and have a lower overclock potential. So, you want a R9 290 with an aftermarket cooler. All aftermarkets which are currently available are a huge step forward compared to the reference card, and they all perform similarly. There are a few minor things you should take in mind though. First of all aftermarket cards are bigger. So, make sure that that specific card will fit in your system! Furthermore brands use different Vram compnonents. There is Elpida and HynX. Some people reported issues with Elpida Vram. In general HynX's Vram is of higher quality. Especially if you are planning to mine, you'll defenitely want to avoid Elpida.

I am not completely sure which brands use Elpida Vram, but I am sure that Sapphire uses HynX. Sapphire has the best cooler as well, but the differences in cooling are minor.

If you don't plan to mine with your rig, I would just take whatever aftermarket card is the cheapest in your country. Sapphire will defenitely be a great choice, especially if you are planning to mine.

I am eyeing the Sapphire R9 290 Tri X OC or the Gigabyte R9 290 Windforce. Seems like the Sapphire might be a bit better at cooling, but not by much. Plus the Gigabyte would match my mobo and software suite. thinking.gif

Ditto. I have been looking at the Gigabyte longer. That's the one. biggrin.gif

Now I just have to sell my old 1080P TN panel, and my old HD 7870. biggrin.gif
