That's the adapter I got. They're a dime a dozen on ebay, or you can get them at many stores that have international travel supplies. Not worth returning the monitor, either tell them to ship you an adapter or just try to find one locally.

Not sure if they flicker. They do I think when in full screen non window mode.

Odd, I never use vsync personally but I tried enabling it in CS: GO (set to triple buffered) and it didn't seem to do anything. My framerate was still in the 200's. What happens when you disable vsync?

FWIW, with a refresh rate this high I think tearing is so minimal that it's rarely worth having vsync enabled. It also seems to depend on the game and tearing is more noticeable in some engines. In particular, I think CS looks great with vsync disabled and of course ensures that input lag is minimal which is crucial for a FPS.

I have Vsync enabled in Nvidia settings.

Also, I need my FPS constant. I don't want FPS drops outside of smokes.

fps_max 300 w/ vsync on should yield only 120fps aka your refresh rate. This is how I know for sure my refresh rate goes to 60 in borderless mode.

Might help for newbies to point out in the CRU guide that you need to double click or hit edit on the profile and then hit copy.

Just use a US 3-prong cable to connect the adapter to your outlet. That thing doesn't even have a ground pin.
Could you recommend a 3 prong cable (not sure which one's we're talking about since I only used my first monitor for like a day and really didn't look at the brick)? Won't be getting my replacement monitor until later tonight and I'd like to reduce any problems with the adapter they gave me for my first monitor.

That just means a regular old computer or monitor power cable.

Hey,

is it possible for someone to post a pic of regular desktop with 1080p resolution with no borders? I have an AMD 6870 card btw.

I would appreciate it.

A lot of us are using something like this:
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10228&cs_id=1022801&p_id=5292&seq=1&format=2
or
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10228&cs_id=1022801&p_id=5285&seq=1&format=2

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10228&cs_id=1022801&p_id=5279&seq=1&format=2

The lower the AWG the better the cable. Order the length that you need.
