The response time, for example, between hitting the SHIFT key and the time it takes your guy to actually start sprinting, etc, all feels a bit "off" to me compared to games like Far Cry 4.

Edit: Just tested the LEDs on/off and dont notice any difference with respect to the slight IPS glow/BLB bleed in the corners.


GTA is definitely not a fast paced FPS so I can understand somet things feeling slower, but the aiming is very responsive which is where you should notice is most. What FPS are you playing at?

I mean, I let my friend who is not a particularly hardcore gamer (he'd not heard of input lag) try GTA out on both monitors today and he noticed instantly how sluggish the aiming was. And even the mouse in the menus too. It could be you're framelimiting or something like that? If you notice it in Far Cry you should definitely notice it in GTA.

I just wanted to chime in to those who jumped in on the backorder from Shop BLT and assure them that they are a legit retailer. During the whole AMD mining fiasco 2 years ago, they were one of the only retailers I know that didn't price gouge on the AMD's 7970's and R9 290's while every other retailer (Newegg included) was charging much higher than MSRP.

I also bought a Ergotech Freedom stand from them earlier this year with no issues and it was also on backorder but they eventually shipped it out to me.

My frame rate is kind of nuts in GTA V, at least according to Precision X. Might try some other software.

When I first started checking it today, it appeared to be locked at 29! It wouldn't vary at all:


I played a little while longer and then it appeared to "un lock" or maybe the counter in Precision X just wasn't working correctly:


But it seems steady between 63-80. I have never seen 100. I am running v-sync off and "100 refresh rate" set in settings/graphics (in game settings).

What are you guys getting??

Edit: I turned on the on screen refresh rate display in the X34 options and verified that the 29 FPS that Precision X was reporting was a glitch. it ways 29 sometimes in Precious X, where as the monitor refresh rate shows 70 or so. I knew it was a glitch because when Precision X would switch from 29 to 70-80, there was no change in gameplay.

Generally Im getting around 70 fps in game play. Might need to turn down some settings to get 100.
Edit: I just ran the in game graphics benchmark (wow it was LONG) and it doesn't even give you a summary at the end. But I got in the range of 60ish-90ish depending on what location the bench was running.

6-Axis color - Reset everything back to default

Color Temp - Set to "user" and then press forwards where you can set RGB 49, 49, 51

Yep, tested this today and the problem is still there only this time instead of the right half being off its only about 1/4 to the far right but as soon as DP is detected it goes fullscreen. So long as this doesn't evolve to a worse condition I'm not going to worry about it. I will post this on the Acer thread as well.

I just thought that I would mention this in case anyone has noticed this or not. When I Iaunch a game (which all games I play in Fullscreen) the game play is fine. However, after I exit the game (any game) about 3-5 secs after I get a brief screen flicker. This flicker only happens once and only after I exit a game and return to the desktop. I tested both Gsync for full screen mode & Gsycn for windowed and fullscreen mode. This has occurred ever since I started using the monitor but I don't see it as a problem as it does not continuously flicker. Its just a single black flash screen flicker and that's it. Only reason I'm mentioning it is because my XB270HU did not do this. If the screen was flickering continuously for longer than the split second I would see a need to rma but as is I don't see a need to rma * yet * lol.

I quit using the Precision X frame rate counter and switched back to Fraps. I ran both the OSD refresh rate and Fraps at the same time and they both reported accurate results so I'm sticking with Fraps. I would use the OSD but I don't want it positioned in the upper right corner I want it in the lower right corner mainly to not break immersion but if I need to check fps I can easily drop my eye to the lower right, so I'm going with Fraps.

Yeah I ran the in game bench which display a FPS counter in the bottom center and ran the OSD refresh rate at the same time. They cross checked with each other. Seems PrecisionX can be buggy sometimes for framerate counting.

I'm using a program called Aida64 which allows you to run a customized gadget via LAN. If you notice the top screen lower section with the black bar showing various numbers in blue, green, yellow and red; that is what I use to monitor my gaming rig performance while I game in fullscreen with a single monitor.

I'm not running multi monitor off my game rig because I found from benchmarks and testing that running multi-monitor actually lowers fps and also running window mode also lowers fps for most of the games I play.

So to counter the fps hit I use my HTPC which is the top screen and I log into my game rig via a separate web browser (firefox because it offers the addons I wanted just for this app). I can monitor my CPU & GPU Temps, Clocks, & Load % along with system and video memory usage and finally my hard drive space. Aida64 uses very low system resources which in my testing doesn't degrade game performance. The pic above is very close to the perspective view I get when sitting in the captains chair.

Almost forgot to mention that I can control both my Game rig and HTPC with a single keyboard and mouse setup by using a program called Multiplicity.

Multiplicity can be found here:

Aida64 can be found here:

Sorry if this is a tad off topic :/ I just found this setup better than using the OSD from Precision X.
