Hello all. After reading most of this thread I decided to order the following monitor.
QNIX QX2710 LED EvolutionⅡ 27" 2560x1440 WQHD PLS Computer Monitor *Matte
I ordered it from Green-Sum for $289.00
The monitor took 3 days to deliver to New York, USA. No additional costs.
The monitor has very minor back bleed and no dead/stuck pixels that I can see.
I was able to apply the Nvidia pixel clock patch and created two custom profiles at
96hz and 120hz. Both are selected via the Nvidia control panel. Both work without
any noticeable artifacts.
I am using an EVGA GTX 680 Classified ($449 at Amazon after $30 rebate).
In FarCry 3, I get around 33 fps with max settings at 2560x1440 @120hz.
I am using Adaptive Vsync.
So does it make any sense to dumb down the settings in FarCry to up the FPS to see the smoothness of 120hz?
It seems kind of counter productive. Btw, the 33 fps is playable for me. I have a Samsung 27" 275T and it
looks brighter and better color than this Qnix. I need a color profile for 60hz, 96hz, and 120hz. I tried doing
it by eye in the Nvidia control panel but I think one of the icc profiles floating around will be better. If someone
can link to the profiles that would be great. I'll search for them as well. I also have a 24" AOC 1920x1080 monitor
and I am going to try and setup a surround setup at 5760x1080. Hopefully the GTX 680 can handle it. It has
4GB Vram. I am running an i7 firstname.lastname@example.org. I might have to buy another GTX 680 Classified for SLI. Anyways
long winded I know, but hope this helps someone with their buying decision. It might be a crap shoot, but it's for
real. Can't beat the price. Btw, the base does suck but it works and hopefully will last till I pick up a 3 way surround VESA mount.
