Datacolor Spyder is what I see used a lot, I have one and it works great. There are other options that are in the same price point as well, the Datacolor Spyder seems to be the most commonly used though.

Same for me. The Spyders can be had for good prices usually.

Almost went and ordered the 2713HM btw... Then lost my nerve again.. Just cant decide on a bloody screen here.. They all have so many issues and problems... I dont want to order and return 20 monitors playing musical monitor madness till I find one Im ok with.. I just wanted an easy upgrade choice from my 2410... :/

-edit- sorry to post about that in here im just getting more feedback here then in my own thread on the subject..

One thing to expect out of this display is great out of the box performance. Asus' ROG is their flagship line, and baby glove their ROG branded components. Think of what Dell does with their Ultrasharp line, so, we shouldn't expect to see any situations of bad panels on these displays. Knowing Asus and ROG they will be shipping A+(+) rated panels with zero stuck/dead pixels, next to zero back lighting issues...etc.

I would hold off on buying a new display right now, wait a few months for this to hit and try and get your hands on one to give it a test drive.

Yeah thats what I keep thinking, My only little thing is probubly just my loyalty to Dell's Ultrasharp line, I've had Dell Ultrasharps since the 1702 and had ZERO problems in that time (Owned Two 1702s, two 2407FPWs and my 2410) Of the bunch every one of them is still going strong, both of the 2407s are still being used daily and my 2410 well... still impresses me with the IQ it delivers.

But you do make a good point, June isnt too far I suppose, and this TN panel sounds like it will be special

Lots of folks are running GK110 in sli.
Lots of folks are also running Hawaii in crossfire

Keep in mind at mid-high settings even sli 770's/280x's can keep a steady 120fps @ 1440 on most games. and still look good.

Unfortunately 2 of the games I play a lot of make ZERO use of SLI :/ they're also the ones that get the WORST framerates!

Company of Heroes 2 and Rome Total War II

in CoH2s case even a 780ti from what ive seen isnt a huge upgrade from my 770... Rome Total War II partially is my processor i believe..

Thanfkully i can get around 30-40fps easily at 1440p and those games dont -need- the high FPS, Other titles, Such as Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite etc get very good frame rates so long as you keep the AA on the lower side (which you dont need, given the 2560x1440 panel's high resolution)

I still might try getting a second 770 and going SLI however, Im sure theres lots of games im not thinknig of that can use it

From what I have heard both those games are horribly optimized, your statement kind of goes with that.

Unless you need to upgrade now, I wouldn't do 770 sli in the future unless prices drop big time with high end maxwell doesn't show significant improvements. If so you might just wanna grab a newer card.

770in SLI is still very powerful. But like PostalTwinkie said, game optimization matters a lot.

Completely agreed. Its not a big deal tho as 30fps isnt really noticable in either given the type of game, and you can EASILY get either to decent frames

CoH2 mainly by using FXAA (Low AA) versus the Med or High AA settings (which add SMAA injection which is pretty much crippling) should net me roughly 45fps at 2560x1440 according to HardOCP

As for Rome.. its just a weird case and probubly because the game got booted out the door before it was done, prior Total War games supported SLI fine, just Rome 2 doesnt for whatever reason.... The other possibility on its poor performance is VRAM usage, I know even at 1920x1200 Rome 2 chews up ALL of my 2gb VRAM...

A lot of whats made it difficult when judging "can my 770 do 1440p" is that most benchmarks seem to be "ALL OF THE AA" when honestly from my understanding at 1440p you can turn the AA way down due to the higher resolution (given how the better AA modes work this makes sense actually) So basically if i can handle 1080p with all the details to high and 8x MSAA I can keep all the same settings, lower the AA to 2x MSAA and get probubly the same performance...
