No, not at this time. 96.

I have tried a couple older games that can do 96+ and while I don't personally notice any increased "smoothness" and such I do already have much less eye strain. As in none.

That's why I asked him to send it through EMS. I hope it's cheaper than that :-)

What cards do you have at the moment?

It's right there in my sig dude. 7950 near 1200 core. Crossfire not an option at present; I am mini-itx. But I also can't dump almost $300 more into gaming right now anyway.

I can definitely understand that i come from a 23" TN panel which was total crap, so really looking forward to getting my QNIX even if it has dead pixels and some light bleed i have lived with much worse.

Also should be getting mine in the mail by tomorrow can't wait wheee.gif also really looking forward to the nVidia 700 series think when i have money for some upgrades i will go for the 770 the cooler system from the TITAN/690 sure is nice to have. Well or wait until 2014 for the Maxwell architecture.

I am in mobile mode, can't see Sig. But yeah, I have 570 sli (same performance has 590) and knew I had to have 670 sli (same has 690) to have nice frame rate @1440p. Check here:

Gonna get pics up, but I have to say, besides a tiny bit of backlight bleeding on the bottom right that doesn't even bother me much, it's awesome so far with no dead or stuck pixels!!!

Man that sucks how much did you pay for it without the customs fee? I'll also be getting my QNIX tomorrow i think. Really hope they wont stop for customs clearance, mine was shipped with DHL and the annoying thing is every time pretty much i have to pay taxes for it when it's shipped with them, i just hope i'm lucky this time. We live pretty close so we'll see tongue.gif

With little backlight bleeding, no dead or stuck pixels that I can see, and overclocking to 120hz like it's nothing, I'm impressed with my monitor, some pics as well:
