Aaaand just came to the realisation that 1440p is not enough. It is just enough for 2 windows open side by side, any more and it gets cluttered. rolleyes.gif

8K cannot get here soon enough.

*I had this epiphany while following the Skyrim Revisited modding guide, and only being halfway through after 15 hours of modding"

Will just get a single card cause actually I had issues for so long now with this SLI system of mine. Just get a top of the line card like MSI lightning and overclock it like mad.

Edit: My GPu is not downclocking @ 96Hz when in idle. How can I force it to downclock

Probably the same reason it won't downclock on my 120hz monitor. It's sending more than a single 60hz signal, so it won't fully downclock because it wouldn't be able to run it at idle speed and keep that refresh. It does the same thing running 2 or more 60hz screens.

It does downclock, just not all the way.
In progress.

Hello,

I currently use a Samsung SyncMaster 226BW 22" and a GTX 580 1,5GB. So I wanted to ask if my GPU is capable of running a dual monitor set-up with a QNIX QX2710 and my old Samsung 226BW?

And can anyone recommend a good ebay seller for EU-buyers? Maybe some1 had some good/bad experiences specifically with purchases in the EU-countries (since I would be ordering from Austria).

I think calibrating @96/100Hz is the sweet spot. Has anyone actually gotten a super stable overclock @120Hz? (0 random faint blue lines)

My issue. Could it be the internal speakers interfering with my screen?

I think Spartan managed to push his to 152Hz, so I imagine 120Hz is very stable for him - monoprice cable iirc.
Mine is very nearly stable, very, very occasionally I get a line but that's it - off stock cable.

I could probably get 120Hz stable if I tweaked all the settings down as far as possible, but that takes :effort: and my calibration is for the LCD Reduced profile, changing it would mean the colours would shift again, and since I don't have the calibrator anymore I don't want my colours to be off.

Does this look comparable to the 28AWG monoprice cable: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007NJ3WI8? Ordering from monoprice has $8-11 in shipping so unless I order a couple of them it won't be cost-effective.

I don't plan on overclocking any, but would an "average" DVI-D cable suffice for one of these monitors?
