[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 406

post #4051 of 25888
Alright guys,

After jumping from 23" 60hz to 23" 120hz to 27" IPS and struggling to find a sweet spot (I love the quality of IPS but I love the fluidity of 120hz) I stumbled across these. I've just purchased the [Perfect Pixel] X-STAR DP2710 from dream-seller and I was just wondering a few questions.

Firstly, how different is 2560x1440 to 1920x1080? I'm running GTX 770 SLi's and really want to push my games in a high resolution, will it make a nice difference?

Also, the monitor I've purchased comes with a Type C power cable which I assume is the Chinese one, can anybody recommend an adapter from eBay UK I can use? How big is the dvi-d cable that comes with the monitor? I need at least 2meters since my case is far away from the monitor so I'd rather know now so if there's any problems before hand I can purchase the items before the monitor arrives.

Thanks to anybody who can answer my queries!

Edit: I just can't get over how cheap these monitors are, 2560x1440 alone should cost more than £300+ at least, nevermind including the fact they can be overclocked!

There is a nice difference with 1440p and your two cards will run it great.. The dvi cable is about 6 feet. And the power cable that plugs In to the power brick is a standard one that you plug into your psu.. So use a extra one you have that way you don't have to use an adapter..

i just ordered a QNIX for my dad. our deal is if it overclocks just fine, ill trade him my overlord + $50 (which is a win win for both of us so i dont have to buy the pcb)

will unstable-ness of overclocking be shown just in desktop only? or will i have to game? i ask because i sold my titan, and he doesnt have a video card good enough to game with, so ill be overclocking and just using the desktop to try it out..

im excited, it just arrived in ohio.... COME TO LA ALREADY YOU MONITOR!

Hello everyone! Well I've been lurking in this thread for about 2 weeks now and I've finally bought a Qnix QX2710! I should get it by Wednesday! smile.gif

Oh! Can anyone recommend me a good stand that has height adjustment, screen rotation, tilt, and swivel? I want to replace the one that comes with the monitor.

Thanks! smile.gif

I asked earlier but if you enjoy FPS games or games like Dota 2 should I expect any lag or latency with a qnix?

This has been gone over many times search "scaler" in this thread and you will find more than enough info. thumb.gif

"fast enough" is relative to the individual. What are you comparing it to? If you want to know about game performance i "believe" and many others believe it is fine. With the lack of a scaler and 120hz it is better than most. Please search for more information since we are bloating the forum with repeat questions.

Well my wife just let me know mt X-Star arrived. I'm at work. Doh!

Looking forward to getting home and taking a look. Still need to assemble the rest of my build too though.
