Higher refresh rate the only way to go?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I hate using v sync, generally because in games like BF4 I feel like I get overall less FPS if I use v sync because of fps drops.. I have adaptive mode on with my 60hz monitor and it still bothers me. I can't stand screen tearing though. Would a 120hz monitor cure this? What if I can't sustain 120hz?

I was thinking abuot getting the qnix 27 incher

screen tearing to me was gone when I had 120+ hz monitors...it really makes a difference and makes the game more enjoyable. How do you play with vsync on, the input lag would drive me nuts.

High refresh is most definitely the way to go in my opinion. This is because you can use your high refresh rate when doing FPS games and then downsample when you want massive resolution, The Qnix is a good choice but please do take a look over most of the club thread before buying so you are aware of the pros and cons.

I have a Qnix and i run 1440p@120hz when i want a good refresh and 2160p@60h(downsampled) when i want all resolution. The effect is not exactly the same and 4K screens but with the pixel pitch 27" gives you it is hard to tell. The Qnix would be a "best of both worlds"

However if you read over the Qnix negatives and decide to go mainstream then i recommend taking a look over all the 1440p@60hz vs 1080p@120hz theads as much of this discussion has been gone over.

What are the negatives? The fact that it could have bad back light bleed? Anything else? I've checked the thread before.. but I don't understand all the jargin and people alawys just say refer back to the faq.
