I like the 165hz and the g-sync that comes with it and it will help me not needing to get the latest and greatest gpu to get me to 165fps all the time and fps. I know the Dell also has gsync but This is higher Hz. If you have no issues with your asus panel then stay with this panel for now unless the $400 is big enough for you. Don't go by the Response time as well as it's just pixel response and not related to input lag. The PG279q has better input lag than the pg278q that is tn.

according to TFT central the PG279q has beter input lag than the Dell sd2716DG

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_s2716dg.htm

I can't get my monitor to hit 165Hz, Whenever I go to Nvidia Control Panel and set it to 165, the screen goes black....then it eventually kicks me back to 144Hz.

I'm running a second 60Hz monitor if that has something to do with it? SLI 780s.

I think only 900 series cards can do 165Hz. You need 960 and up to do 165hz. It's limitation in the card itself.

Shoot, that's a bummer

These guys are still powerful enough for me right now though. I guess I'll wait until the next generation of Nvidia cards come out to upgrade then.

If I can't even hit 165Hz, is it really worth it to keep this monitor over the $400 cheaper Dell S2716DG? TN 144Hz G-Sync...

tbh, I haven't used a non-IPS monitor in so long, I don't even know what they look like.

Then don't use TN as it will annoy you. i have a friend with a PG278q and can't stand the bad viewing angles. He said it's perfect with good viewing angles and I just laugh in the inside of me cause you can see the bad colours

Yeah, TN monitors suck if you are used to IPS. Also, even if you have triple 980ti you should still run the monitor at 144hz and not 165hz. Check out the review on Prad.de if you want an explanation why

Alright, dudes thanks for the opinions. I think I'll keep it. It should serve me well for quite a while.

That is why ips+144Hz+Gsync/free sync is kind of holy grail for gamers and why some order 10 or more units and are so upset when they can't find one without dust or dead pixels.
And that is why they still can suck money out of our pockets with this annoying QC.

IPS should never be called a holy grail for gaming or any kind of entertainment. It's just a pit stop until much better stuff comes out.

When you argue like that every technology is just a pit stop. wink.gif
After years of years with only TN in the gaming sector, ips colours and angel stability is a huge upgrade.
Sure, there are much more better technologys out there. But they need more time to mature (and they are far more expensive).
