Indeed, especially given how AA works in many scenarios

Ill be upgrading to an 880 most likely at the end of the year tho, So the 770 just needs to hold till then biggrin.gif

If you are not bothered by motion blur and you don't use or like strobbed backlights,
then you don't need to have your fps always above your refresh rate.
Because the Rog swift will have a variable refresh mode that will allow a fluctuating framerate to feel decently smooth.

x2 7970 Ghz.. fps games.

I'm not an expert when it comes to monitors. but i wonder why many people who went after IPS/PLS panels always bash TN panel although they lack the fast response time and the high refresh rate tongue.gif.

IPS panels have typically better viewing angles, better color accuracy and better contrast than TN panels.
But like you say they lack what really is important for gaming.

Given the info you provided, you should totally check out the lightboost hack.

All is explained here: http://www.blurbusters.com/zero-motion-blur/lightboost-faq/

and here is the how to: http://www.blurbusters.com/zero-motion-blur/lightboost/

For the Asus Rog Swift, you still have time to decide if it's worth it. It's been delayed to June.
If you want my opinion, I think that if you buy it for gaming, you're gonna need to upgrade your GPUs as well.

While for now, the VG278HE and the sli of 7970's are a great match. thumb.gif

Well it honestly depends. IPS and 2560x1440 are FAR better for strategy games, RPGs and etc where you want to be really immersed in the environment

Really id say the only area IPS fails is if you're talking about fighting games that require split second timing and fast paced FPS games, But I'd say I play those both just fine on my 2410... Really at the end of the day having the 120hz monitor is useless if you suck ;D

^^^This.

S'why I have both a 1440p 60hz PLS screen and a 1080p 120hz TN screen right next to it. I switch back and forth all day long depending on what I play. Best monitor investment I ever made.

You got to take into account that the inferiority of IPS for gaming is not only the higher display lag. Its just bad for any game where there is any kind of movement.

- Be it panning/moving in a FPS or in an action RPG.
- Scrolling in an RTS or in an isometric top down view RPG
- Driving in a racing game
- Your example about fighting games
and so on...

It's the vast majority of games that are affected.

Games where it doesn't matter are the exception.

I strongly disagree with the

statement.
It's not only about having a competitive edge. It's a lot about the sense of immersion (feeling connected with the game) and about comfort.

Well fair enough, that last comment was directed not specifically to anyone here but the people who act like you cant do well in an FPS AT ALL without a 120hz monitor, Simply not true...

But maybe my opinion is skewed, I've been running LCD monitors for forever now, Even when I had a CRT I didnt have one good enough to do more than 59 or 60hz at the resolutions I played at...I barely remember playing on a CRT because its been almost a decade now... I am sensitive to blur and yes, sometimes, my IPS panel bugs me a bit... This is just the first monitor where I'm not feeling I'm giving up the IQ or anything to get my 120hz on wink.gif

For what it's worth, I agree with you.

In the past I've always preferred IPS over TN, even though viewing angle never mattered much to me as I sit in front of my monitor. Color reproduction isn't super critical to me as long as it's not terrible but I'd rather deal with lag than relatively poor contrast ratios. I can see how others would see things differently though.

Panel tech isn't the whole picture though. A monitor isn't just it's panel tech and a panel alone isn't a monitor. There are quite a few components that come together to make a monitor any of which could be more or less important to any individual. I feel Asus has found a winning combo with this monitor. The design is great and I'm extremely excited about the thin bezel. G-sync with the 1440p means I can run the high resolution without turning down many settings while still expecting a smooth gaming experience. The 8 bit TN pannel and low input lag... all of these are OK on their own but throw them all together and it makes for a product to get really excited about.

I have noticed no issues using my 1440p ips screen @ 96hz, @ 60hz it might be a problem but i now believe the best of both worlds does exist. I went through so many monitors and tv's always finding flaws before this one and now i don't even give it a 2nd thought, when i sit down to play a game i play the game.. and it looks awesome and is as smooth as anything. I know refresh rate is different to pixel response times, i know what 120hz feels like i owned one and sold it, nothing will convince me that 1440p ips panels at 96hz+ aren't better for gaming than any tn panel currently available.

Worth pointing out that this TN panel is way, way better than any TN panel currently available.
