Help, I can't decide!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm currently working on building a new computer and for my graphics card I am going to get two gtx 780's. I currently have to 1080p samsung TN displays, and I'm planning on getting a third monitor to put in between them, although I will only be playing on the new monitor.

I'm stuck in between getting a 1080p 144hz monitor (Asus VG248QE), or getting something like a catleap/xstar/qnix monitor. I plan on playing games like bf3, crysis 3, bioshock infinite, far cry 3 and the new games when they come out in November.

When I play games I need it to be smooth, and the gtx 780's should get me like 100+ fps in most games, at 1440p. I'm just worried about not being able to overclock it to 120 fps if I get a korean monitor, and I'm afraid it may have lots of dead pixels or something...
If I was to get a korean monitor, which one would you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance!

You should head over to the [Official] 1440p and Above Gaming Club (1440p+)

There is some good info about all the different 1440p/1600p monitors and I'm sure they would be more than willing to provide you with some recommendations.

Thanks! Just had a good read of that thread.
So I'm leaning towards the qnix monitor, although I'd really like it to be able to overclock to 120hz but I read lot's of people only got it to 96.

This website has most of the korean monitors in one place so you can compare. The X-Star DP2710 is advertised as capable of 120Hz, but your mileage may vary.

edit: i think it's the same monitor as the QNIX, so I'm not sure. I've read several accounts of people reaching 120Hz on those monitors, but I think it's hit or miss. I can run 90Hz on my Dell U2713HM and I'd imagine those can be pushed further.
