post #16321 of 25922
So... better reactiontime but slower refreshrates and input lag. Why is which one important for gaming and how?
post #16322 of 25922
Alrighty, so I figured out all this good stuff now. My monitor is running at 120hz as I thought it was... sorta - That website test, is a pile of crap and just does not work with my setup.


Skyrim works as intended and a program I'm using which you can download here: http://goo.gl/IJkrf shows that it's performing as intended as well. Games that allow you to select the refresh rate in vertical sync mode would also help (BF3 and BF4 for example)

So yay, I'm a happy camper again! I'll be taking some pics of my setup sometime today thumb.gif

League of Legends appears a little choppier than before. Although my 580 still keeps it pinned at 60 fps. But I imagine this issue will be alleviated somewhat this weekend when I try to push for 120hz.

How do I adjust gamma? The only monitor buttons are brightness and (lol) volume.




Also, other than games and a very small selection of wallpapers, what is there to display at 1440p? No movies that I know of.

Brightness and volume is all you get.

I read that there's just a limitation on bandwidth on trying to keep two 1440p monitors at 120hz going full sprint on just one GTX 780 Ti.

I just tested running two 1440p's on one GTX 780TI (EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked w/ACX Cooler) Only one of my two monitors will go to 120hz, the second goes to 110hz. So I ran BF4 on high settings at 120 hz, while at the same time watching a Blue-Ray movie (Ironman 3 if it matters). BF4 didn't move off 120hz (FRAPS), and the BR movie had smooth playback. I used the program in Balsagna's post to verify I was in fact at 120hz/110hz. The UFO test site worked fine on the 120hz monitor, but wouldn't sync on the 110hz monitor.

Under the above settings, the 780TI temps were stable at 64c, with the fan at 54%, so definitely not pushing the GPU to the max.

Based on this, I would say yes, you can run two 1440p's on a GTX 780TI, and yes, you can overclock two monitors at the same time from one Nvidia GPU.

Not really sure what you're trying to say.
I just set my screen to 120Hz before I go ingame ( since I'm using borderless ) and VSYNC neatly fixes the fps at 120fps.
This way the 780Ti doesn't break a sweat and thus doesn't become noisy at all.

I've never ever had tearing on this screen.

Great - I'm glad that program is of better use then that site. The OP should take it and put it in the Overclock Guide section as the test site just isn't that good and is unreliable. The program coupled with FRAPS is a better option.

It fixes League of Legends to 120fps in Vsync? Please test in this game if you don't mind - But what I'm trying to say is some games vsync do not correctly vsync to your 'monitors' refresh rate of 96, 110, 120 etc etc. It will vsync it to w/e they specify it. In my testing, LoL and TF2 was capped at 60fps since they're much older games and 120hz was theoretically unheard of.
