So I was thinking of getting a Gigabyte GTX 760 Windforce Rev 2 and OCing the refresh rate to 75hz as depicted in the previous pic.


Wont do anything. Most monitors simply stop displaying an image after a few Hz higher than 60, even though the majority also report that 75Hz is their maximum. The most common limit being about 64Hz. I also know that many older LCDs that report 75Hz as max will take that input signal but "compress" it or whatever and still only display at 60Hz. if you want a higher refresh rate that you overclock to then you need to actually buy one of those Korean ones, or you can also buy a TN panel display that operates at the higher Hz refresh at stock. I personally like the Korean option better because 1440p and accurate color is way nicer.


The QNix displays are your best cheap ones. They look great and all of them seem to overclock really well. I have one that I am typing on right now at the office. At home I have a Yamakasi 2B that also runs 120Hz. I bought mine for about $400, but now days they are closer to $800 frown.gif The difference being an LG S-IPS panel vs. a Samsung PLS panel. Both are nice but the S-IPS is a bit better on color IMO.



Going with one of these monitors will let you get 120Hz refresh rate, but your graphics card wont get you that far. The resolution is a LOT more demanding than 1080p and trying to maintain a minimum of say 100 FPS requires either beastly GPU setup or turning down the settings quite a bit.

I get the exact same results as him in BF3 MP 64 with my 7870 as well, solid 60. Tested with fraps, not recording though, just watching the FPS. Even with my much older cpu. So I don't see why you guys don't believe him, my 7870 is overclocked though, but even at stock it pulled that off.

I may as well look at the 120/144 models than. I am not gonna fart around with a Korean model.
