G-sync DIY module now available, $200

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Became available on their store, is anyone else going to buy it?
I'm really interested because I play competitive FPS and it would really smooth out the framerate I get in BF4 with my single 780.
I was hoping for <$150 but now I'm debating it. I already have the VG248QE and plenty of modding skills.

Opinions? Anyone actually used one of these?

I bought one since I already have the VG248QE. Based on what I read from the press and users who had early access to G-SYNC; they've all said that it is revolutionary and hard to go back to a non G-SYNC monitor after experiencing it. I play quite a bit of Battlefield 4 and other FPS's on my single GTX 780, like you. I get framerate variance between 100-130 FPS that I notice stuttering at times. Apparently G-SYNC would be the solution to fix this problem.

However, I'd only buy this kit if you already have the VG248QE or just can't wait any longer to get your hands on G-SYNC. Asus announced VG248QE "G-SYNC Enhanced" editions late last year that will retail for $399 which is cheaper than the current ~$250 for the monitor + $200 for G-SYNC DIY Kit (which I also believe voids the monitor's 3 year warranty).

I just watched the vid on how to do this from guru3d site - you gotta be crazy to pay $200 to avoid your warranty as said above.

I find it disturbing that nvdia would even encourage this - asus must be laughing, yep, another monitor we don't have to cover biggrin.gif
