[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1623

post #16221 of 25893
So UKSimmer, I did some testing. Star Trek Online ran with no issues, 55-60fps. I also tried BF4 and ran the system test with graphics set on medium. FPS were steady at 45. Not too bad running three of these on a 7970.

With settings on high, and dpi set at 7680x1440, I set the frame rate goal to 35. I got a couple of 33-34 fps as reported by fraps, but most of the time it sat at 35fps. Scenery seamed smooth while flying around.

I'll leave this set up for about 30 minutes, so if you happen to see this and have any questions please let me know.

Nice! I have no idea about Star Trek Online but if FSX is running at 35, I am sure there are ways and means to get it running more smoothly with higher res terrain and high res aircraft. Any chance at all of trying Falcon BMS? You don't have DCS A10C or DCS BS2 by any chance, do you?

In any case, I'm happy with the FSX results since that means my setup is possible though obviously pushing that many pixels would be a challenge to the HD7970. Well, it's had an easy life so far!

Sorry, I don't have Falcon BMS or the DCS games, so couldn't test them.

Nevermind, but thank you very much for your help!

I didn't know the powered DP to DVI would do DL.

What about a 280x with 2x DL-DVI CF with a 7970 (only 1 DL-DVI)?

Would you get the 2xDL-DVIs from the 280x or is it lowest common denominator?

for running two monitors I would get the 8bit+frc aka 10bit models

true10?

If I really can't OC with two monitors I may consider it.

I don't know why you're running in to trouble there, I know that I've run 2x monitors and still was able to run an overclocked Catleap at the same time. So you *can* run dual monitor + overclock.

Out of curiosity do you have two monitors attached? As that's known to limit it to 60hz

yeah, for some reason you get capped at 60hz with two monitors.

I just read the "no OC if using more than one monitor" issue and that was surprising. I had planned to buy some monitors and would've set my sights on 90hz or thereabouts and be happy with my monitors but it seems that now I'll be stuck with 60hz? Should this be an issue for me since none of my flight sims have seen anywhere near 50fps on my current setup, so upgrading to bigger monitor (total) resolutions can only mean I'll be lucky if I get 40fps or more??

If that's not going to be an issue, then at least all I have to worry about now is BLB and dead pixels.

Another question: since I am planning to buy 3 monitors (possibly QNIX ones), should I buy all 3 at once and from one seller and possibly negotiate a discount price or should I buy one-at-a-time and maybe from different sellers?
