Don't buy year old cards for the love of god tongue.gif 780 or wait for 20nm. Unless you really have a weak card right now and can get a really good price on a 670/680/7970.

Is there a warm-up period on these monitors? Unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, my monitor looks more vibrant & has more pop after @ 8hrs of use.

I bought a 780 at the same time I bought this monitor because of the same worries you had. Now that I have the 780 of course I am keeping it and selling the 680 (I am a OCN member after all tongue.gif). In hindsight the 780 was pretty much a unnecessary purchase though.

The only good thing is the increased memory interface and size. That will probably start to show after a year or so in some games. For BF3 and BF4 I would say you are more than fine though.

You can say that again. I'm selling my 7970 to get a 780. It's a pretty frivolous purchase for most people (even I feel sort of bad about it) but anything that will help me push more fps to get a more fluid 120hz experience! And if the 9970 is really that much better over the 780, I'll sell my 780 and pick one up (should cost around the same I sold my 780 for).

I recently got the Qnix QX2710 to use on my mac setup, mostly for work and some web browsing. It sits right beside my PC dual monitor setup, so I wanted some separation with all the black going on. Thanks to the feedback on this forum, I would have ended up with a 1080p if I wasn't introduced and re-assured about these value monitors.

"Poor Man's Cinema Display Clone Mod"

Steps:

1) Removed the front bezel and stand.

2) 3 Base coats of plasti-dip rubberized coating (BLACK) ($7 at local hardware store).

3) Let base coast dry for 3 hours.

4) 4 Finish coats of plasti-dip pearlizer (https://www.dipyourcar.com/product.php?productid=62&cat=31&page=1). This pearlizer is what changes the monitor from black to brushed aluminum. The pearl gives the finish its "sheen" or slight luster, instead of just a flat gray.

5) Let it cure at least 4 hours.

do you guys think i should go for normal or pixel perfect model. Here is the links

or

or should I rather buy from this seller.

If I order the perfect pixel it will work out to about $500-$510 including the customs and so on. If I go for the cheapest one it will work out much cheaper but higher risk. Do you guys think there have been much success with these and it's save to go cheapest/

Thanks

DiceAir,

if you read the first page of the forum there is a pretty good run-down of Pixel-Perfect. There is also a feedback chart and you can compare sellers as well. Good luck.

Perfect pixel is covered in the OP and has been asked and answered 27 times.

EDIT: If your against searching at all for information. The perfect pixel is a scam but may be useful if bought with a squaretrade warranty.
