Broadly speak, if you are going to be hovering close to 60 FPS, down to 30 FPS, then G-Sync is the way to go. If you can keep above 60 then the higher refresh rate could be better.
Thankfully in this situation our only choice is G-Sync or ULMB, higher frame rate? Use ULMB, lower frame rates? Use G-Sync.
From what I'm reading theres VERY few games I can exceed 60fps in at 2560x1440, Most of the time it seems I'll be down at 30-50 fps, Where yes GSync will be a benefit, Theres also the question if shortly in the future if games like Watch Dogs and Arkham Knight will be playable on my desktop the way I like to play (IE, settings cranked to the max) if i make the jump to 1440p...
So I guess the better question might be, considering for the forseeable future I'm going to be running this same GPU (With a "maybe" on getting a second 770 or upgrading to Maxwell closer to the end of the year..But I doubt that, I tend to keep my GPUs around for a while) would it be better to go for the 1440p, but sod the GSync and 120hz, or stick with 1080/1200p and grab the Asus VG248 where my system is plenty fast enough to run most things at 60 fps +
I'm not -too- bugged by the performance of my 2410 with motion because well.. it looks spectacular 98% of the time, There are times when yeah, it bugs the living heck out of me that things are a bit blurry, but then again it might be because I dont remember anything else (Its been 10 years since i had a CRT, I hardly remember it) It could also be that while I DO play shooters I also play a lot of OTHER games where its probubly not as big of a deal that i dont have the fastest monitor around...
Of course I can be patient, wait, and see how this thing performs in the real world.. Theres always that chance of the first run having problems after all (It happens, Not Asus' fault and Im sure they'll take care of it if there is, but it still would suck!) Maybe make it an Xmas gift, versus a late birthday gift...
Im awful at making decisions, Or more accurately, its a lot of money and I dont change my monitors out very often, Sorry for going off topic and suchEdited by KenjiS - 3/16/14 at 8:36pm
