My thought it that yes you would as if your fps was lower than the refresh rate of the monitor then the monitor would display frames multiple times and would smooth out the image, does this sound right? i was just wondering as im not sure how well an 8350 and 290x would drive a 1440p 144hz monitor with all the bells and whistles turned up (i do like my bells and whistles).
With G-Sync this doesn't matter at all. The FPS of your game decides at which refresh rate your monitor will run anywhere from 30-144Hz instead of being limited to just 60Hz.

EDIT: Freesync in your case. If you want to stick with AMD I would suggest getting a monitor that supports Freesync.

I am looking at changing over to team green sometime in the near future (probably looking at the inevitable 980ti) so i was just wondering if in the meantime i would get the benefits of a high framerate monitor on my single overclocked 290x.

Yes, you should get the monitor, it will be able to go over 144fps with your setup

Inevitable 980Ti? Stop this nonsense.

what nonsense would that be then? There are indications of the 980ti here and here and im sure else where as well. it would make sense for them to release one around the same time as the amd 390x (or whatever they will call it) later in the year. Anyway this is a discussion on the Acer monitor and not upcoming gpu rumors offtopic.gif

So the second monitor shown is the XG270HU? If so, I want it but I wish it had an IPS panel. I like the bezel and stand design on it a lot. I'm using a Dell U2410F which is a 16:10.. I feel like I'm out in the cold..60Hz, 1200p.. Is it worth an upgrade? Would this even be an upgrade? I get a nice consistent 60 fps with all the games I play and 60hz refresh doesn't bother me. I don't think I would really notice a difference. Could anyone with the experience shed some light on that?

60fps/120Hz looks smoother than 60fps/60Hz. That is already known by the people who have had these 120Hz+ monitors for years now. Shoot, even 48fps/96Hz looks pretty beautiful and fluid. These are easy to do thanks to Nvidia's adaptive vsync (half rate) mode.

thanks, thats what i thought. i wont be using a load of AA so that should keep my fps up a tad. i get around 100-120ish in bf4 with everything up so should be good. now just need price and availability.....ohhh and the wallet for it is suppose lol

The nonsense is the name is invented by terrible rumour sites based on the fact nVidia released the 780Ti. I am 99% sure we will see a Titan before a 980 Ti, and I am 98.9% sure there will never be a 980 Ti just like there was no 680 Ti. Anyways, glad I stuck with my QNix instead of going for the Swift. Patiently waiting for the new wave of 27" 2560x1440 144hz monitors smile.gif
