So if you do have old mpeg2 files you want to watch you have to disable madvr?

That is one way of doing it. You could also just have 2 media players installed with one not using madvr. Or you could just convert the old files to a new format(which will reduce quality slightly since you are re-encoding).

I'll be playing games like GW2 and LoL. Not extremely graphic intensive.

I'm sure my card can handle it.. But how much better does the 1440 look compared to something I mentioned above. Is it worth the extra $100?

League looks so much better to me, esp if you oc the monitor. I was taken aback by the loading screen the first time I saw in on the qnix.

23" 1080p = Display size: 20.05" × 11.28" (50.92cm × 28.64cm) = 95.78 PPI, 0.2652mm dot pitch, 9174 PPI²

27" 1440p = Display size: 23.53" × 13.24" (59.77cm × 33.62cm) = 108.79 PPI, 0.2335mm dot pitch, 11834 PPI²

You include the refresh rate difference and you have a big difference. And this is just from the information you have provided.

I have spent WAY too much time messing around with madvr, filters and renderers. I can definitely say i have seen lots of flukes and sometimes you just have to mess around with it. thumb.gif

Le sigh I HATE messing around with filters and settings. Tried to follow instructions exactly on that website, but he is not clear on a lot of things, and now I have the dreaded green screen. Trying to reset everything and start over frown.gif

The only time I've ever had a green screen is the first time I came across 10bit video. I hacked ffdshow into WMP, and only later found MPC-HC and haven't looked back.

As long as you added the correct filters and set them to prefer, it should work. Avoid all hardware decoding and make sure no ffdshow. If you can't get it to work check all installed programs and get rid of any possibly conflicting codec packs, then try KCP.

Edit: can't remember if that guide supported full screen exclusive mode (in madvr), but you should turn that off. It changes the look of MPC and has an ugly transition.
