It seems they didn't sent mine as a gift (as i asked them to). I believe i really got lucky to bypass customs (and i am usually unlucky on these things).
Cross your fingers, you can be lucky as well wink.gif

Btw, I just got (literally) my monitor. Expected next monday, already here. With quite a surprise : No taxes. It took only 4 days to deliver in France : https://www.fedex.com/fedextrack/?tracknumbers=553324214586&locale=fr_FR&cntry_code=fr&language=french
Am waiting for my friend this afternoon to unpack these babies (ordered one for me and one for a friend). Hoping to not have bad surprises.
Why not an R9-280X if you want more VRAM? You also get a faster memory subsystem and generally same or better performance at 1440p.

@drdrache: Quality vs. quantity doesn't really mean "quality" in the sense you have understood it. *A* quality, aka does the monitor drop frames or not.

Yeah I know, it will kind of sound silly but i like Nvidia products. I never had issues with their pilots and all the cards i had till now worked really well. I have more trust in them than i have in AMD.
And since they are about the same price, and the same overall performance, i prefer to go Nvidia. The only downside to me is the lack of 3go Vram which are on the AMD.


Otherwise, we unpacked our two Qnix (one is for my friend). They are awesome. Just being in windows and surfing is quite a shock smile.gif
We have no dead or stuck pixels, and no BLB (or really very few). There was a note in both boxes from Red-Cap, so at least they opened them, can't say for sure they tested them.

I tried overclocking mine, it takes 120hz without issues (but i had just my phone to take pictures of the missing frames test).

I also played a little bit of BF4 with my old GTX580, i run about 70-90fps with preset to medium, which is quite impressive to me. I think i will be able to go "high" with the GTX770, and maybe some options to ultra.

All in all we were really lucky I believe. No taxes, No dead pixels and no BLB on both screens, jackpot !


EDIT : Just a quick note about colors. It's amazing to go from TN to PLS. It's really day and night to me.
EDIT 2 : Thanks to all overclocker's guys who helped me choose my screen. Two weeks ago, i didn't thought such monitors existed for this price (230€ with delivery).

bf4, on high/ultra on my 7970 GHZ (read 280x) @ 1440P, 120hz, i'm getting 80-90-100 FPS. and by the reviews the 770 is about 15-20% slower than the 280x, and until the prices drop like nvidia has stated, over $100 more expensive, and has less ram.

right now, AMD is the price/performance king. when the TI and GHZ 780's come out, it may not stay that way.
I currently am in a dislike mode for nvidia because they are trying (and as gamers/consumers we are letting them) nickle and dime us to death.

Try using the Color Profile Keeper. The Windows solution for custom color profiles is kind of finicky. Sometimes they get turned off after exiting 3D applications (like games), and they also are usually not active while in-game.

Color Profile Keeper allows you to add in an .icc, associate it with a monitor, and force that profile at all times smile.gif

Well, I don't really want to go off topic, but i have to disagree with you.
I looked a lot of review before thinking about the gtx770, here are a few on games i'm interested in:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/7400/the-radeon-r9-280x-review-feat-asus-xfx/12
http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/61201-amd-radeon-r9-280x-vs-nvidia-geforce-gtx-770-4k/?page=2
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/R9_280X_Direct_Cu_II_TOP/7.html
http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/radeon_r7_260x_r9_270x_280x_review_benchmarks,18.html

I never saw one review were 280x was 15% faster. At best, it's on par with GTX770 in the reviews i saw.
Moreover from what i read, nvidia is quieter, with less power consumption, better cooling and better OC.

In my country (France), price drops have already happened. 770GTX is 280€ (there is even a gigabyte for 250€), with Assassin's Creed 3, Splinter Cell Blacklist and Batman Origins. I think I can sell each codes for 25€ which brings the GTX770 at almost 200€.

I really don't see were 280x is the best actual price/performance.

Prove me wrong before i make my purchase because i really want to buy the best one available in this range of price. But for me, it seems GTX770 is still the winner.

the 280x is nothing but a faster 7970. there is no heat issues, or sound issues. those are all 290x. so, best bet is look at the 7970's not the 280 reviews. selling games that people already have 99% of the time, doesn't make for a cheaper card, it's a "buy me now gimmick" only adds value IMO if you want and don't have that game.

if you look at ALL of those reviews they are doing 4K res. where both cards show their chip-set age. go find a overclocked ghz 7970 review and use that. (some how, the 280x isn't even doing the frames I see with my 7970)
if the price has dropped, good, but you haven't posted a price for a 280x. and nvidia has never been the BEST for super OC. they make it harder than AMD does. always have. (that's even said in the reviews you posted) and cooling is subjective.


EDIT: I'm not starting a AMD/NVIDIA war here. please no one take it as that. From his links, I was incorrect about the speed. I remembered incorrectly, and I did mention price/performance, that's what i'm going for, disregarding the free game gimmicks

Has anyone ordered from green-sum recently, to the UK, and got their order via DHL? I ordered on Sunday and in early hours of the morning I got 'Departed Facility in INCHEON OUTSKIRT OF SEOUL - KOREA, REPUBLIC OF (SOUTH K.)' as the last update.

Long shot, but wanted to see how long after this sort of stage other users got their delivery. I already paid DHL's customs/fee request and want to know if I should hang about tomorrow/Saturday.

Hey all. Hopefully someone sees this and can help.. I received my QNIX 2710 yesterday (yay!) but am having issues..

Overclocked to 120hz = blue lines on bottom of screen and random overall garbage (as seen here )
Overclocked to 110hz = fine for a while then garbaged image as seen above
Overclocked to 96hz = see above^^

Once my screen goes to hell I have to restart the computer to get it to display again.
I also have another monitor hooked up (hanns.g hg281d) and when I unplugged my QNIX when it was looking like the picture above, my hanns.g displayed the same garbage.

Whats going on??
