I wish there was a demo of that game (and all 2013 AAA titles for that matter). I want to see it on my display but I am certainly not shelling out $50-$60 for a game ever again. So guess will be waiting. I paid full price for years before the days of sales. Now I have more games than I have time for in the first place (and always seem to spend most of my time playing the same few multiplayer shooters anyway).

wow, watch how cool 120hz 1440p is with this 60fps video in 1080p! rolleyes.gif

1440p isn't really that much different to 1080p as far as gaming goes anyway, Just means you can go a bit easier on the AA.
120Hz is nice though, but I would like to try it on a proper 120Hz screen since these things blow goats at 60Hz anyway.

I don't know I notice a lot of nice little differences with the increased pixel density of 1440P and that is coming from 1200P even. Even things like sharper, tighter text on the HUD in BF3 is apparent.

Major? No. Better? Hell yes.

Maybe its just me, but I can tell a big difference going from 1080 to 1440. After I launched League after getting my first qnix...to me it was like going from sd to hd again smile.gif

i'm interested in jumping in on this, is there a particular seller that people are having the best results with and should i look for a specific version of these monitors or are they pretty much the same, just rebranded?

did a quick search on ebay and there are quite a few listings, i'm assuming it is going to be the ones from South Korea that i should be focusing on.

Got mine from hulustar, no complaints. Just be aware that no matter the seller, there is always some dice roll involved on how much blb or dead pixels. Don't buy a pixel perfect version. Look for either an xstar dp2710 or qnix qx2710 evolution ii

Gameplay video

Make sure you change quality to "original" smile.gif Of course its not 120 fps while I play, I dont have a powerful enough rig to play and record at 120.

Okay, got my monitor into today. It's hooked up, I'm typing on it.

First, I can't see any dead pixels, so Yay.

Second, the power adapter worked with my existing hardware, so again, Yay.

Third, fired up one of the most intensive Ego Shooter Multiplayer Games currently available, Red Eclipse (http://www.redeclipse.net/), and didn't find LCD ghosting to be an issue.

Honestly Ill probably change it to one main display in landscape with the other two flanked on the side in portrait, but I admit, this looks pretty sweet
