i also seem to notice that most of the complaints are from people that have some kind of AMD tag.

its pretty annoying and really frustrating, considering this same exact thing happens on every single forum i visit.

I'm not an AMD loyalist - I have a history of heavily criticizing them on these forums too for things like crossfire, drivers, quality, etc. I only have a R9 290 because I got it when it was $400 and knew it could unlock to a 290X and I could sell it for a lot more than what I paid for it new, and I fully intended to buy a 780 Ti Kingpin if there was a G-sync DIY kit released for my BenQ monitor at a reasonable price.

The problem may have been around "forever" but to the vast majority of people it's a pretty small problem. Tearing an stuttering can be a little annoying but it only gives fits to the pickiest people. Most people have no problem ignoring it and it's not worth more than $50 to them to remove the tearing or stuttering. I am one of those picky people and it does annoy me, but not to the point where I'd pay $200, even if I already had the 780 Ti.

fair enough, but i would be willing to be that if you saw gsync and used it, it would change your mind. lots of people have said that you dont really understand how much gsync changes your experience till you use it. if you have been gaming for years and ignoring or dealing with stutter, input lag, or tearing, you have taught yourself to be "ok" with the quality of your games.

i could compare it to living with a benighn tumor. you can have it, not know its there, and go on forever with it. doesnt mean it isnt there, and that you couldnt have a better quality of life (gaming) without it.

Oh, it's about a dollar or so. The entire thing doesn't cost any more than fifty bucks and that's being a bit less than conservative.

But alas, it's a new thing. It has been proven that people will shell out a more than generous premium for Nvidia's hardware.

Don't get me wrong, GSync is something I want, but will wait for these early adopters to be the guinea pigs.

sorry dude, but if it was AMD's Gsync i would be saying the same stuff. unfortunately its not.

im simply trying to understand why people on a forum where completely overkill over the top quad titan builds are showcased are complaining about a piece of hardware that solves huge problems and only makes gaming better being a measly $200.

it blows my mind. i thought people around here were enthusiasts, people who are into the newest tech, people who are all for advancements in technology, especially ones that benefit gamers as much as gsync.

i feel like majority of people dont understand cause they havent seen it, and they dont know what they are missing. or they have AMD cards and are angry about it.

btw im happy to be your guinea pig.

on topic though, my gsync will be arriving today. ill have it installed tonight and get back to you guys tomorrow with my impressions.

and seriously, its $200..............

Seriously?
Enthusiasts might be throwing their money on stuff they like, but they have to have the impression (at least) that they extract value out of what they've spent money on.
If it was $20, I would be with you: relatively painless impulse buy value...for a relatively rich US/North European/Jap etc person that actually makes that kind of money easily. We are talking top 1% of the global pop?

But $200, ontop of a installation procedure that might kill/ding/scratch your monitor, surely ding/scratch your time (won't be easy if you've never done it before, will take some time), and all of that for a mid-range TN panel that doesn't cost that much to begin with?
If that thing was available for my U2711, I would still think about it a lot.

As said already, just sell your un-tinkered-with panel, and get a new one with G-Sync. You won't get a bigger ding in your wallet at least.

You did want it, you think you will get your money's worth with it, good, but plz, don't label people like that, cause surely others can label you too based on the way you word things to cover up your buying choices.

People spend more time reading about their favorite overkills, those that they only hope (or not even) ever acquire...that fast car, that crazy Quad SLI Titan.
Who said that people in this forum don't think quad SLI/CFX of ANYTHING is overkill? Or who things that that 1000HP Supra or $600,000 F12 is "needed" by anyone?

We just won't rush into the thread of someone having such a build and say "ooooh, it blows my mind you've spent $6,000 on your PC", much like they don't read on our signatures and answer back "it is ridiculous to call yourself an enthusiast when you cannot spent more for your PC"...

The part where you have to break a piece of casing in order to mount the new circuit just overloaded my ocd, that's one of the
reasons I'd never think about getting this diy kit.

I don't think it will be a $200 premium when it's built into monitor

haha ok.

you guys are seriously disappointing......

kill/ding/scratch your monitor? you cant be serious.

If I were going to crack open my monitor, it would take more than G-Sync to motivate me to do it. Quite a bit more, actually.
