Love hearing that type of feedback. I hope I get a decent one, but I'll be OK to play the lotto a bit with it. I just wish I'd of ordered this one first before the 271, I just assumed I wouldn't be able to run it but the info I've read and videos I've seen show I can power it decently. Really pumped to put my order in.

Yeah a single 980 Ti is a good match with this resolution. Sure you won't be getting 100 Hz locked in more recent games, but I've been seeing around 70-80 average in many games I play. I could spring for another 980 Ti but I'm not a fan of SLI either so will wait for Pascal.

70 to 80 is definitely solid, good to hear man

Well I've decided officially on this monitor, gonna stop thinking about other setups. Ncix has it listed in Stock, but when I went to order it said pre order and only ground shipping.

How often has Newegg and amazon restocked it guys?

It seems Newegg is getting some every couple of weeks. I wouldn't buy from Amazon since they are letting 3rd parties sell it for way above MSRP. I plan on buying it (if I don't get spooked and decide to wait for pg348q) from Provantage for $125 less before shipping and tax. According to another member Provantage should have stock by the 20th. With this monitor it will take patience to get.

What sucks is this morning it was on amazon from a 3rd party for just under 1200 bucks, and I just didn't get there in time.

How is provantage, never ordered from them ever or even heard of them honestly.

According to another member here they are great. Even let him keep his existing x34 until his replacement came and didn't charge him a temporary hold on his CC until he shipped back his existing x34. Seems like a great company. There were some issues with his first panel.

Note, I don't work for them but am just looking for the best price.

I am having some incredibly odd issues with this monitor, the panel seemed perfect for a while but I'm beginning to notice tearing when the monitor approaches max FPS if it's set to 60hz and it hits 60FPS I get tearing, 100HZ and 100FPS it tears as well. This occurs only with G-sync enabled, if I use v-sync it's fine. I captured the test on video, I switched over to the scan line option since the camera could not show you the pendulum test accurately.

You can see it pretty obviously happening here so I guess I'll be returning it to Amazon which is really sad because I loved everything about this monitor.

That's normal - just how GSync works not anything to do with this monitor.

It operates within a range - 30 to 100 for this monitor. Once you hit 100, G-Sync is no longer active so it'll fall back to VSync and if you don't have VSync on tearing will be noticeable.

If you don't want to use VSync you can set a max FPS cap in another app like rivatuner, set it to 99.9 FPS. That way G-Sync will always be on.

We coming up to 8 issues with this ACER Predator X34 now and two recalls, is ACER going for "Highest number of problems" award 2016.

It could be the way Gsync works, does it happen at any other refresh rates or FPS, or does it do it at the exact refresh rate (when FPS hits it) if it does it only at 100hz when at 100 FPS, it would be the way Gsync works. However it should not be that noticeable (due to only being a small amount over)
