You need a DVI->VGA adapter to use that card with a VGA monitor, and you can only use one VGA monitor as it only has one DVI-I port that you can use with the adapter..
Sorry I haven't been clear: with VGA I was meaning both Video Graphic Adapter and Video Graphics Array

Question 5) -> Video Graphics Array
Question 6) -> Video Graphic Adapter.

That monitor that you speak of does not exist, at any price right now. The Qnix/xstar is the only 1440p panel that can common get to 120hz, is PLS/IPS and can do so at a cheap price. Yes, it's a risk. It is, however, the only game in town.
I cannot believe it...(in a sad meaning of the sentence)
We've Apple throwing "Retina" things everywhere and we have nothing more than 2 or 3 monitors capable of 1440p@120Hz, all via unofficiale ways?
We've 32" 2160p costing 3500$ and 30" 1600p STIll cost 500-1500$??? Feels like wrong to me.

I just wanted to chime in and give an update on my x-star. I've been trying a lot of different cable all with different results. Basically every time I get a new cable and OC to 120hz I notice a little line here or some static there. I think I've finally found a cable that works for me 100%. The only cable I cannot try are the 3ft ones, so its 6ft only for me. I've also tested both DVI ports with all cables.

1. Stock cable, 28awg, , OC to 120hz standard I get horizontal lines everywhere on the start screen. Tried front porch method and noticed a few lines playing games. 110hz is perfect.

2. Monoprice 24awg 6ft. . Basically the same as the stock, maybe even worse. 110hz is perfect.

3. Bluejeanscable.. 24awg 6ft. Worked fine for about a week and noticed some static when opening an app. It must have always been there but it took a bit to notice. 110hz is perfect.

4. Cable Matters 28awg 6ft. OC'd at 120hz on standard and noticed just a little static on top right, all other cable would be unusable on standard. Did the front porch method and tested all of the other issues I had with other cables and so far its been perfect 100% . I may notice something in the future but its been a few days now and I have seen no distortion whatsoever.

So for you guys asking for cable recommendation I've had the best luck with this one:

Ah. In that case, no video card supports HDMI 2.0, and probably will not for now and the near future (1-2 years?)

Retina never referred to refresh rates, so...

Forgot about those, yes the Tempest X270OC can overclock as well, but they're little more than Catleap 2B's in different shells. They, at least, do not suffer from image retention, colour shifts, uniformity and brightness issues when overclocked. But 120hz is still not guaranteed.

I think his point was we have major continuous advancement the amount of pixels on the screen, yet very little in their refresh rate.

Because 99% of pc users could'nt care less about higher than 60hz.
We are a lot of people but a tiny percentage

I actually live in Seoul and went and pick up a QX2710 from Yongsan in Seoul for just under $270 with guaranteed no dead pixels.

Overclocked and tested at 120mhz with no frameskipping.

How is my backlight bleed?

I found 1 dead pixel, which means I can definitely return it for a refund/exchange if needed but since it seems to reach 120mhz I take it it's not really worth replacing? Bear in mind it would only take me a few hours to get a replacement free of charge.

Where did you get this statistic?
A majority of gamers care about low FPS, and I believe gamers make up a huge portion of "pc users."

As much as I'd like to agree, I don't think gamers make up that much of the "pc user" category. everyone owns a PC these days. I'd estimate maybe 10-20% are gamers, and of that, only 40-50% are concerned with resfresh rates. I base this on nothing but pure guesstimation
