Forget a 144Hz monitor, get a 2560x1440 one instead.....

Please don't turn this into a 1440 vs 120/144hz thread.

That's a hard choice but here's how I would look at it. If you didn't have the high refresh rate then you wouldn't need the second card as much to push fps that much. I'd grab the monitor now and then a 2nd card later.

Isn't the Asus VG248QE the model that will have the upgraded G-sync module soon?

760 SLI @ 1600 x 900!? No...No...& No thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Buy the Asus VG248QE first...A single 760 will run games @ 1080p with satisfying graphic settings long enough until you are ready to buy another 760 later thumb.gif ...but that's what I would do if I were deciding between the 2 whistle.gif

Yes, it will be one of the first to get g-sync. I own this Asus monitor and I love it. Some things to keep in mind, will you be able to take advantage of the 144hz in most of your games? If not, then you're losing some functionality there. IMO, get a second 760 and when you have the cash, upgrade to a 144hz monitor.

I don't want to make this a 1440p vs 120/144hz tangent, but you can get the best of both worlds by overclocking a Korean monitor like Caelen said. Just my 2cents.gif
