Even though Nvidia does very low fps better, i really do not plan on playing anywhere near 20-50fps on a 144hz screen rolleyes.gif

According to sweclockers.com it will be 6990 sek (about 750 euros) but I guess that will be the price in Sweden and the prices in Europe are usually much higher. I don't know about the other countries but where I live for example an Asus GTX 980 strix costs 700 euros (some even offer it for 750 euros) at local stores while at Amazon it's $560. I live in Eastern Europe though.

I'm in the market right now for a new monitor and also a new graphics card. I really want to get an Asus as a monitor since I've had two monitors so far, both Asus. The first one is 9 years old and the second one is 5 years old. I have no problems at all with the first one (9 years old) and the only problem with the second one (5 years old) is one dead pixel which it developed about a year and a half ago. They both still work great every single day.

Unfortunately these new technologies like G-sync and FreeSync pretty much tie your hands when you have to choose a monitor and a graphics card. I'm still thinking to get this monitor with a GTX Titan X though and the only reason to choose Nvidia card is Nvidia Shadowplay. If you're not into this Shadowplay stuff I think the new AMD R9 390X (it will be less expensive and more powerful that a Titan X) will be a monster and with this monitor it will be a great gaming experience. Looking at the benchmarks for the Titan X I think you won't need G-sync ot Freesync at 1440p anyway and when you just imagine that the R9 390X will be even better... smile.gif

I'm still not 100% convinced about G-sync and FreeSync since it looks like all the problems with the ROG SWIFT comes from the G-sync module in it for example. We still don't have any experience with FreeSync though. Probably in a year or two they will be much more stable. I've read somewhere a guy from Asus talking about G-sync who said: "We've learned a lot from our experience with the ROG SWIFT.", which means this technology is still in development

Yeah, I don't really think it's going to be 750€. It doesn't make the slightest sense, it doesn't have a GSYNC module meaning it shouldn't have any premium over a normal 27" IPS 144HZ 1440P.

At 600€ it could be an interesting proposition.

its asus they will will make sure to put there "Premium" Charge in there regardless if it has gsync or not if its another rog branded monitor it will carry double the "Premium" Charges and it will be made by ppl who make a Quarter of a penny a week.

This isn't a ROG monitor though, that will keep the price down.

It is considered middle class or mainstream by Asus.

Any idea what the UK price will be? I am guessing close to £600...

I think it will probably be £579 or something like that.... About £100 less than the Acer gsync monitor...

I was hoping it would be around £500 or less even, but unlikely.

Why do you want to buy this one? Your signature says you have a GTX 970 so a G-Sync monitor would be better for you I guess. There is a good 1440p 144hz Gsync IPS monitor already on the market right now smile.gif

He doesn't necessarily need VRR most likely. This monitor would still offer 120 Hz IPS from a name brand for both GPU vendors, and multiple inputs for a cheaper price over the Acer.

That is true yeah, but he gets to have it right now (the Acer XB270HU is out already isn't it?) and possible G-Sync. smile.gif
