Ok thanks. I'd seen a few posts like that so was just wondering what the deal was. I have a GTX 780 so it should be fine.

Go here, this place is located in CA, you might have to pay a little more for the same monitors sold on ebay but it is a alternative...

Well I only been looking at the Qnix and the X Star monitors mostly $288 and for pixel perfect $309 on ebay and at ipsledmonitors.com they roughly come out to $329 plus tax. Which still isn't all that bad.

With that being said to get the option you have to convince your driver your monitor IS 120hz meaning having the 120hz option in the driver EDID as a native resolution refresh rate. This means anyone that does not have this set in CRU and only in NVCP as a custom resolution will not get this option. Also if you added the resolution AFTER your last drivers update it will not be there since it was not there at install. Now that you guys bring it up i did notice it was not there before i updated my drivers last(from screen shots a took for tutorials i made for my cousin)This concurs with everything i have found out so far. So if you are not seeing it this is likely why (meaning your drivers do not detect your screen as native 120hz).

So if you want to fix this you need to use CRU or a hacked EDID instead of using NVCP custom resolution. This will make your drivers think it is an actual 120hz screen and "unlock" this option(which makes it easy to get games on board with the refresh)
that is good information to know. thanks. so out of curosity after reading your post, i went and installed the catleap .inf for my monitor driver. the end result is 120hz does show up in games which have an option to select. obviously games like tomb raider 2013 and metro last night don't have a refresh rate select option. players will need to turn off vsync for situations like those. but vsync should be off always to get 96hz or 120hz displayed. some games like dead space 3 force 30FPS when vsync is on (that is a no no).

i might try the CRU route after final fantasy xiv hits retail stores as i'll upgrade my nvidia drivers for that game. all i did was install the catleap .infi file and made a custom nvidia profile. no additional steps were taken.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but how the heck are these monitors getting cheaper? I bought mine in April for $317. I thought the opposite would happen, that the prices would go up a bit (like when the hype kicked in for the original K-IPS monitors). This is.. unexpected. May have to snag another one tongue.gif

EDIT:
Also, I wanted to ask you guys this. I think this is normal, because I can't find a single post with a person complaining about this, but does your QNIX make a kind of cracking and/or creaking noise when you pick it up, tilt it, or apply pressure on the monitor? I'll be sending the monitor to SquareTrade to fix another problem, but I'd like to know if this is a common noise with all QNIX's so I can tell SquareTrade if this is an actual problem or not. Thanks!

This is exactly what shadowrun did until i used the preferred refresh rate option. If you have a game that does not have a refresh rate option it will override the in game default and switch it to your max available refresh. Same with tomb raider for me. Also turning vsync off does not mean you are seeing that many frames because it will just overlap and tear. I found this out in Shadowrun as well. With vsync off it would stick around 200fps but if i slung the mouse cursor around it was not as smooth as the desktop. After enabling the preferred refresh shadowrun and the desktop are the same and you can turn on vsync in the NVCP and it will stick to 120fps(in game still wants 30fps though because it is an xbox port). Before preferred refresh NVCP vsync would set the game to 60hz after 120hz.

So with this being said some games without refresh options may not be able to be set to 120hz without the driver override since even with vsync off it will set the active refresh to less than 120hz. FRAPs will show more but it is juts overlapped frames.
