I'm guessing there both the same apart from colour and one has DVI and 2 HDMI and the other has 1 hdmi and display port?

I would appreciate some input on this too.as I was looking at the first Asus. I wonder if for the price it is worth going for a Dell although smaller screen size or even Qnix (seems more of a gamble).

Surely some how you could configure the settings that are going to the display within the graphics card software like nvidia? I seen some override settings on there. Wouldn't this help to keep things stable? I haven't really seen any good looking screens like the above 2. The reason why I think I'd pick the VX model over the mx, is because of the mini display port and it's black. But I guess I could get the MX and just use a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter.

What one would you go for? :-)

The overdrive type settings in the GPU control panel can 'help' (debatable) improve performance slightly for monitors that don't use overdrive. The VX9 series does use overdrive - too much of it in fact. You really need to be able to reduce it and that is something that the GPU driver can't help with and you can't control on the monitor without TraceFree settings. The MX9 series is the better choice for that reason and make very decent gaming monitors. smile.gif I would just use the HDMI port (HDMI-HDMI) on the MX - do you have an AMD GPU currently?

Oh I see. ok. Don't you hate it when a monitor has the full hot looks, inputs etc, but then it just gets ruined by not having an important feature!!
I guess companies do that, so you end up buying 2 monitors or something lol.

I am actually doing my first new mini ITX bulld :-) I just bought a Intel Core i7 3770K 3.5GHz Socket 1155 8MB Cache processor

I want to get into gaming on the PC so I thought I'd do a new build. Not only gaming but also hardcore video editing

I have also bought a Asus 760 NVidia graphics card with a nice asus mobo - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z77I_DELUXE/

Can't wait to fit it all in my Elite 130 cooler master case. smile.gif

How do you know this? There are no reviews currently for the VX279H.

Sometimes ASUS overdrive settings might be accessed in a service menu.

For ASUS monitors:
1. Power on
2. Hold down menu button. DO NOT let go.
3. Unplug power
4. Replug power (2 seconds is long enough to wait)
5. Wait until input message (DVI/VGA etc) finishes displaying
6. Release menu button

On some ASUS monitors, there's some extra overdrive settings.
Use www.testufo.com/ghosting to adjust overdrive.
WARNING: Service Menu isn't for the weak of heart. But I wonder if this has overdrive settings not visible in the main menu.

It would be nice if any VX279Q owners could test that. I suggested that the guy I had recommended the monitor to tries to access the service menu but he didn't want to.

I bought 2 of these screens and they are in there box brand new but I haven't got them out yet. I dunno about service mode. I've done it before to other things like ps3 etc but not to a new screen

I just tried it and they seem to have disabled the service mode from the new releases
