It's because we're excited and impatient.

This.
I want a G-Sync monitor.

I personally never used/seen one. Also never tried 144hz & lightboost.
Using a SyncMaster T220 right now. I can live with it but the jump from 60hz into a fast responding 144hz G-Sync monitor should be more than insane.

Can't wait for it.

Yeah we are excited. I've never owned a 27" 1440p monitor, so I really do not know the experience it will give me. I'm not even using real HD right now. I am watching 1080p via my RGB cable... yeah I know, its an old system (Zotac GT520 Boost video card) I usually get 15 fps in diablo 3 and its a sad story. But my new computer is slowly coming together. I finally got my hands on the NZXT H440 case. That is one difficult case to locate. I should have it next week and can start doing the mods to it. Super excited

Nvidia has no reason to make the 880 a whole lot faster than the 780ti, unless AMD gives them one thumb.gif

As it stands now, maxwell is expected to be great at mining, and that alone is a huge selling point which might unfortunately kill any reason to make it significantly faster than the 7 series mad.gif

I swear.....I could never be a fanboy....I hope AMD and Nvidia trade blows for all eternity

Don't know if anyone has mentioned that ASUS has a 4K @ 60Hz 28 inch monitor coming out at the same price ($799).

> http://pcdiy.asus.com/2014/01/pb287q-4k-for-the-masses/

So 1440p @ 120Hz OR 4K @ 60Hz?

Coming from my ASUS VG248 (1080p @ 144Hz) I'd say that the 4K monitor is a better choice. 120Hz is nice, but I honestly can't tell the difference between 50 FPS and 120 FPS when I'm playing a game in real time. Sure, if I had two displays, one running at 50 FPS and one running at 120 FPS, I might be able to see a noticeable difference. But FPS are never that stable.

If that monitor had gsync, I'd consider it.

But it's doesn't and it's also going to have more motion blur that the 1440p.

True! I forgot about the G-Sync. So ASUS bring us a G-Sync 4K @ 60Hz monitor! The technology is here and ready.

Ugg they better make this sucker glossy. I just sold my U28D590 because the AG made the display look like it needed 4x AA at all times. TN panels + AG coating are an absolute no go for me.

I think everyone that's coming from an IPS/PLS Korean 1440p is going to be in for a very rude awakening in image quality if the ROG SWIFT has a TN+AG panel.

The longer I wait on this monitor the more I may just wait for a 4k Gsync panel. I just have the feeling that I'll drop $800 on this and then a 4k 120hz will come out around Christmas and I'll be kicking myself. Plus I'd love to use a 4k for work smile.gifsmile.gif

FWIW, I know, I know it'd be almost impossible to drive a 4k at 120hz. That's fine, I keep monitors for several years.
