1440p monitor and 1080p monitor.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I'm about to finish my build and I'm getting two gtx 780's in the summer and I'm gettin the asus pb278q 1440p monitor with them. I already have an asus vs248h-p 1080p monitor. Is their a way to use both at the same time? For example I play bf3 on the 1440p and can check my "Facebook" on the 1080p at the same time. Il have the 1440p on my right an the 1080p only my left and il be running windows 8. Thanks

Easily, just set the 1440p monitor as primary, go into extended mode and window BF3. Keep in mind the Vram usage will increase drastically. A better option would be to connect the 1080p monitor to your mobo and have your CPU's GPU power it (assuming an intel 3000HD).

Just curious why you'd want to waste $633 on that Asus monitor when you can get a better monitor (the 120Hz Qnix QX2710) for half of that price...?

Do you think it would work better if I waited for higher VRAM 780s to come out?

Il be using a 3570k at 4.5. If I plug the 1080p in the motherboard will it try and play bf3 on it and the 1440p? will they be two separate desktops? And also, will it affect game performance?

Everything Nvidia has put out starting with Titan has been complete trash. Personally I was going to purchase two 780's but after quite a bit a research have decided to go with AMD's next major GPU release. the 8970 (or 9970 if they skip the 8000 series) will likely be more powerful than a Titan GPU for less and with with more or the same amount of vram. Because all next gen consoles have AMD APU's with large amounts of vram, next gen titles are going to be vram hungry. While 3GB may seem like a lot now (any more being useful only for multi or higher res monitors), it may not be enough in a year or so.

the game should play on the primary video device (780) and everything else will be on the other screen. Its quite simple really.

It won't effect game performance if the CPU's GPU is powering the second monitor, it will if power by one of the discrete GPU's.

Here is my write up on it and all pertinent links that you may need, hope it helps.

How you may ask? Qnix QX2710 or Qnix QX2710 (Pixel Perfect for $385)

"Oh, it's from eBay? **** that brah." Relax, relax...let me explain.

It's a PLS panel (which some say is just Samsung's version of IPS), though the pixels are different from IPS monitors. Some also think PLS has better colors than IPS.

From what I've seen most people easily hit 110Hz, if not 120Hz, as long as you don't have a garbage graphics card.

The bezel is of reasonable size, too bad it's glossy though, I'll be painting mine matte black. Also the anti-glare coating on the monitor is quite light and doesn't degrade the picture quality. Sooo much better than glossy if you ask me, and many others will agree.

Mine came with 1 dead pixel and 1 stuck pixel (likely the stuck pixel can be fixed), I ain't even mad though...the pixels are so god damn small it's quite hard to notice it. I don't have any backlight bleed on mine, some people have experienced bleed, but there is an easy fix.

The downside of the monitor is that the casing is cheap, which ain't that big of a deal to me. Although it is kind of annoying that you have to remove the back panel to take off the stem of the mount (if you want to put this monitor on a monitor stand with arms).

All in all, I'm really happy with mine. Definitely recommend it if you're in the market for basically the best bang for the buck/performance monitor you can buy right now. Also, the shipping from South Korea is so stupidly fast...48 hours, how is that possible? If you're worried about a warranty or it dying you can get a warranty from Square Trade for $50 for 3 year coverage.

Feel free to read user's opinions in the huge Overclock.net threads:

- Overclock Results
- Monitor Club w/ Optimization Guides

TL;DR
Pros:
-27"
-1440p
-overclockable to 120Hz
-amazing colors
-cheap as ****

Cons:
-cheap casing
-possible backlight bleed (though you can fix on your own)
-cheap monitor stand
