from the looks of it, I might get a decent deal on a card from people I sorta know. but the main worry for me is vram usage, and idk how much vram would start to be overkill.
yeah it is, then I'll be looking out the window (campus mail email actually) for my monitor on thursday!

With anything get the most you can afford smile.gif Nothing wrong with getting a card with 3 or 4 gigs if you can afford it.

and the amd oc was easy. it's just you have to patch it unfortunately. I might get dual 7970's a 7990 or wait out for amd's 9000 series.

I mean if I get the most I can afford, I can get a titan or 7990 but that'd be an absurd purchase for me. but yeah, 3/4gb can do nothing but help me with large res. just finding the balance between vram, gpu, and price is hard.
then again, I only play SC2 and LoL, my demands are dumb. future-proofing's cool though

see toms hardware article regarding the CPU needed for one 1440p monitor. 2gb is enough, it seems

Edit: it's from Anandtech

This is better (though I havent read Tom's article and they may come to similar conclusion(s)). Anandtech generally one of the best authorities and this article is another example of why.

The most important point to note is how this set of results came to pass. Several months ago I came across a few sets of testing by other review websites that floored me – simple CPU comparison tests for gaming which were spreading like wildfire among the forums, and some results contradicted the general prevailing opinion on the topic. These results were pulling all sorts of lurking forum users out of the woodwork to have an opinion, and being the well-adjusted scientist I am, I set forth to confirm the results were, at least in part, valid.

Yup, doing some internet research seems 2gb should be fine for single monitor.

yeah I was looking through it. for what it's worth, my i3 2100 seems to do alright even in comparison with i5s (except in the case of SC2). the article doesn't really touch on gpus other than 7970 and 680

Got mine today guys. i am very impressed. Zero dead pixels, little to no backlight bleed. 110hz on the included cable. 120hz has some lines. Will post pics soon but first im testing css on it. Also I am using the Asus PB278Q color profile.










I have zero complaints. In regards to the screen. However the brightness button to increase brightness is very bad. I have to force it in where it then maxes brightness then pull it out again. Im not going to use it much but still...owell. At least the screen is amazing.

Starcraft II is more of a cpu intensive game isnt it?

Hi all,

I finally got my monitor here to France (17th May) but didnt have time to play around with it until today.
It's a nice screen - no doubt. I have not found any dead pixels but there is however some BLB present in the bottom of the screen.
I did some calibration with my Spyder3 but in the end I decided to use the Asus PB278Q color profile setting as I liked the way colors stood out more compared to the somewhat cold calibrated profile (6500K, 2.2 Gamma).

When trying to overclock i had to spend quite some time before I managed, bare in mind that this is the first time I overclock a monitor. wink.gif
I am on a Windows 8, 64-bit system and are running 2 x Sapphire 7950 (Crossfire, bridged with 2 bridges). I then patched the video drivers with the pixel clock patcher. Then loaded up the CRU utility and overclocked to 96Hz and later 120Hz which seemed good, at least when in desktop mode.

When trying out games however (BF3, Tomb Raider, Trine 2 etc.) I had problems when leaving 60Hz. Both 96Hz and 120Hz shows some rolling/flickering effect that I seem unable to localize the cause of!? I have tried enabling/Disabling VSYNC and also a few other settings but no luck.

Has this been mentioned/observed by other users? I seem unable to find any info concerning this problem and It feels kind of sad to set the screen to 60Hz now that I am starting to get used to the stability of 96Hz.

Below I have collected some ifo that could help to solving my problem and also provided a 6sec youtube-clip that shows the effect in motion.

Crossing thumbs for a solution....

BTW. should the monitor driver be for "Generic PnP Monitor" ???

Well for a starter you could try the beta drivers for you GPU. I'm running 13.5.

Also i've heard some bad things about Win8 and the AMD drivers.. Haven't had issues on my laptop tho.
