I think it's just a stock issue. Newegg is usually the best for anything in the States and they are still back ordered:

No offense to callsignvega, but he has inadvertently derailed the entire discussion regarding "scanline artifacts" and moved it to "where G-sync is meant to operate (90-100 vs 45-75)". I'm speaking based on this post http://www.overclock.net/t/1537403/tftcentral-acer-predator-xr341ck-34-curved-gaming-screen-with-g-sync/5060#post_24574936 and all the discussion after that post.

Where ever G-sync is better (high fps or mid fps range) it is still a VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) technology which means that it should operate at any FPS/HZ without scanlines.

Please let us all stop debating what G-sync is supposed to be or where it was meant to operate and focus on the fact that the scanlines are there when G-Sync is ON.

Those of you who want to minimize the scanlines by buying a couple of Titan Xs and operating all games at 100fps, that is still a valid (albeit expensive) solution in my opinion if you are convinced that running G-sync at max refresh/fps always offers benefits.

PS: I don't wish to engage in arguments. I prefer to put heads together and co-operate. But my stance is that no expensive monitor should compromise on image quality, G-sync or otherwise.

On a happier note, I am glad this scanlines issue has gotten so much traction over the last few days. It started with SmokeytheBear pointing out how the Vinewood sign in GTA V had fuzzy horizontal lines when placed at the left side of this monitor. Consumer awareness is always a good thing is it not!

I'm getting my monitor today or on monday. I'm sure it's going to have the scanlines or wake from sleep and other problems and I intend to make a detailed post about my tests and results. (I get about 1000$ from my university each year for personal computing expenses. The amount is deposited in my account only when I produce a receipt. So I had to do buy something or lose that cash for this year. haha, maybe I should have gotten the surface pro 4)

EDIT: I also have the ACER service center about 20 minutes from my residence here in Singapore. They also offer three years warranty where they come to your house and take the monitor back themselves for testing and repair. Worst case, I wait to see how many problems get resolved officially by ACER and then request a repair.

Hi- would single gtx980 be enough to run recent games at X34 resolution? I'm looking at least 70 FPS

There's no simple answer to this question. It depends on the game and also video quality settings you consider minium requirement.

ARK will most likely never even come close to 70 FPS - even on 1080p - with high quality settings (unless you're willing to use the -sm4 option).

Alien: Isolation, which is mostly running throug dark corridors, would make a GTX 980 twiddle its thumbs at 100 FPS on a X34.

Preach it! I'm with you. I do find it interesting that high fps "fixes" the problem though, there's something to be learned from that.
