Asus says a Native G-sync VG24QE Monitor (everything incorporated at the manufacturing level at Asus) is due in Q1 2014 for $400.

There is also much belief that there will be a wide range of G-sync monitors introduced at CES, different sizes, resolutions, refresh rates, and manufactures. CES starts Jan 6th i believe.

Well that doesn't seem to bad price wise, that monitor sells for $350 here in Australia with no g-sync, not sure if it's the same price over there and we can expect g-sync monitors for only a additional $50 or so, or if the non g sync version over there is a lot cheaper then we will probably be paying quite a bit more. If it does end up being only $400 might be worth grabbing a middle of the road cpu and gpu and checking out how it performs at around 30fps in games.

Right now sells for about $270 USD

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236313

So about a $130 USD added cost.

Amazon has used and refurbs for $220. Wait until the diy g-sync kit comes out and drops to $100 (it'll happen later this year) and you can get a g-sync monitor for just over $300 US.

No point comparing used monitors prices to new tech new monitors.

Unless AMD delivers a product to combat G-sync, Nvidia is not dropping the price of the DIY kit. Based on Nvidia's history when it comes to pricing, i don't expect them to drop the price >1 year of a new tech.

Plus with the recent reports of their showcase sunday at CES, my guess G-sync will be a big push for them this year.

Now I don't know if $200 will be the final retail price of the DIY kit or not when it is released full scale. Right now the release has been more of an early adopters, trail run program.

Blurbusters was putting the price tag for the kit at between 130 and 150, so it doesn't have to go down a lot to hit the $100 sweet spot. Apparently we'll know in the next two weeks what the real price will be though.

This is somewhat of an oddly-timed response...

And no, the kit will not go down in price. The kit will only ever work on that one particular model. What we'll get are new models that have it included in the design.

I'm pretty sure you'll be able to find these modules for under 200 come Christmas. Heck, if they still have stock of them after Christmas I'd bet on a fire sale.

Never is a long time, and the resale market/warehouse costs make sure the price of everything drops down at some point.

I still want one, but not at $200.
