Make sure if you plan on keeping the 770 for a while get a 4GB version. Games are already pushing 2GB. If you go SLI later you'll need 4GB on each card.

Alternatively you could wait till HD9xxx is released later this year - but that's a while away.

Yeah I actually did notice a member on this thread said he could hit 120hz with his 7970 and just upgraded to a 770 and could only reach 110hz. I guess there's some variables involved when OCing the monitor but good to know you can get pretty good results on either card.

Yeah 4GB no doubt, seems on most benchmarks the guys are doing ok with 2GB but like you said some games are already getting really close to that ceiling and some can even pass it (Skyrim with HD texture mod, etc).

Ugh... the current pixel clock patcher is not working with nvidia drivers 326.01. Therefore, no overclock. Can anybody here confirm if the pixel clock patcher works with the 320.49 drivers released today?

I just overclocked my X-star with the NVIDIA pixel clock patcher and the 320.49 drivers. Seems to work fine.

I guess I can't complain to bad. No BLB, 120Hz. One bright pixel. I need to try and massage it out or something.

yes that was me but I have a 780 now and can only do 110hz. Though I would still stay far away from AMD. I just had three of them and you need two bridges for good non stuttering games.

The post above saying its easy to overclock monitor AMD is true they are both easy though. But you can not currently overclock these monitors without test mode and patch drivers with AMD and with Nvidia you can. And that's the big difference for me. I need some apps to work that check for drive signatures and will not run in test mode. Such as powerdvd for blurays.

So just keep those things in mind. Everyone has there opinions I have owned both from these generations. And for me personally have not other option that works for me.

The extra FPS is useless if it is not smooth.

Very low. I haven't heard of a person not achiving at least 96hz. Mine can go to 120hz but it gets lines sometimes so 96hz is where I am good at. However there can be a first for everything.

The trigger has been pulled thumb.gif $320 for up to 2 dead pixel Qnix matte

Will post how things go
