Maybe theyre officially doing a 2D lightboost hack thing tongue.gif

Yea Gsync sounds cool, and will only initially work with an addon with supported hardware. AFAIK only supported by 1080p TN monitors like the VG248QE or XL2420T(E). So screw that....hopefully next year theyll have it work on 1440p+ IPS/PLS/VA

Maybe i should visit the monitor and displays forum, havent browsed there in awhile.

Well, it says:
"You'll hear more from us on G-Sync soon." Not much help at this point AMD. Maybe AMD will produce an external box that works on current displays.

I feel this questions is border line trolling as Nvidia G-sync has no bearing to AMD owners in the club.

Rather than club owners provide you evidence that it's not the end for AMD please provide evidence for your statement first. Otherwise member opinions don't need evidence, as your questions is purely your own evaluation of a possibility and not based on any facts either.

No way. 8GB is plenty, and you won't see even a tenth of a frame per second increase by adding more RAM.

What are your guys favorite GPU monitor/overclocking program?

I've always used Afterburner, but seeing if there is any other options that are good(just to see whats out there tongue.gif). I know there are links in the OP, but I want to hear what people think the best one is.

AB is my favorite, but currently cannot get it to unlock voltages with my Sapphire w/ Asus bios. So currently stuck with GPU Tweak.
