I don't think it will be that high. 3x 1440p has a bigger resolution than 4K (11M pixels vs 8M pixels), so you should be looking at 4K charts and still expect lower numbers than that.

That said, I was able to play games in med/high settings, no AA with my 7950 when I was using a 3240x1920 res (3x 1080p in portrait - 6M pixels). Since 3x 1440p is almost double 3x 1080p, you will most likely need a dual-GPU card or move out of mITX.

I currently have a 7870 GHz edition, i ordered 1 x-star and i plan to keep using my 23in 1080p monitor as well. If i am in a game on the xstar but have netflix on the other screen is that very straining on my GPU? or does it not take that much VRAM to run a movie/netflix?

It barely consumes any GPU power if you do other non-gaming things on other monitors. You may lose 1 or 2FPS at most, most likely none.

Unless it is a very VRAM intensive game. Netflix plus a secondary monitor can add up to a good amount of VRAM. Just having my secondary monitor active ate 5-6FPS off of Skyrim. On the other hand Shadowrun didn't have any effect at all.

I also just tried running netflix on my second monitor while playing Skyrim and it took me from about 90FPS to 77FPS. Now i do have a LOT of texture mods and whatnot so it will use all of my 2GB of VRAM if it is allowed. So overall i would say in best case scenario it will have no performance impact and worst case scenario(since my VRAM was maxed) it can take 10-15% hit. Really depends on the game.

You could always very easily check it both ways real quick and see first hand what the impact is. wink.gif

Just received my Qnix QX2710LED today from worldbest365. Took 2 days to get it after buying it thumb.gif Right out of the box OCed to 120hz in the nvidia control panel with no problems. Not getting any lines and there is zero backlight bleed. Using the supplied cable. Can anyone tell me why people use the pixel clock patcher and CRU for nvidia cards when you can just create a custom resolution from the nvidia control panel? I have tried BF4 and it reads my monitor as 2560x1440 120hz with no problems. Is there some thing I am not understanding?

Accessorieswhole is offering me another board to try and fix my flickering, I'm not sure if its the language gap or them dodging the question but I cant get them to say if or not they will replace it if I take it apart and screw it up by accident, obviously I don't want to dig into a monitor and possibly break it when I'm sure they have the ability to take a return. Anyone done this before? Did the Ebayer say it was covered?

id make sure I asked them point blank if further damage occurs from opening the monitor if they will accept the return, if not then they need to accept the return now.

I had an annoying time with like 15 back and forth messages (only one from them per 24 hours also annoying) trying to get a monitor returned. I bought from someone else next time.

Any idea when these monitors will drop to 269 again? or never frown.gif

Wanted to get a 2nd one, but I guess I waited too long.
