All listings cost $489.99 and above.

On Newegg... $439.99 for a refub Acer, new start at $499.99 and up

Your argument about GSync being at a disproportionate degree of fault is invalid. Let's not make it about Team Red versus Team Green, let's be honest and accept that the reality of things is that until cards in the $300-400 range can run 1440p Ultra at 80+ fps, most people will not buy them. And buy the time cards in that range are capable, the $400-500 range will support 4K at the same settings and framerate easily on a single card. Volta and the Vega Refresh will help drive the prices of high resolution, high refresh rate monitors down further... and the generation after those will bring 4K into a much more respectable price point for the low to mid range budget consumer.

I listed 2 144hz 1440p freesync monitors that are $399, the Monoprice one and the Nixeus, as well as some Korean monitors on ebay, and then there's the new Samsung CHG70 which isn't much more for the 27" I believe. Or you can still get a QNIX 2710 for $200 or less that will do 100hz over DVI... Not sure why you're trying to argue about that.

My argument about G-sync is perfectly valid, as the Acer predator and Asus swift monitors have been out for years now without a price drop, and the freesync version of that monitor has always been around $150 cheaper. I said it's PART of the problem, I didn't say it was a huge part or a bigger part than any other. I also was not trying to make it about red vs green, simply stating facts.

Cards in that range that can run 1440p Ultra at 80+ fps have been around for years now... I bought a 780ti classified for $390 in 2014, and at the time there weren't any games it couldn't max except maybe Crysis 3. A 1070 now is all you need for 1440p with the exception of a few games.

Obviously as more powerful cards come out the midrange cards are getting more and more capable of pushing 1440p at 100+ fps, and that will push higher resolutions and refresh rates on monitors, I'm not arguing against that at all.

Yep thats why I have a 1080ti and a freesync monitor. I also think they need a bit more time to sort their crap out. When I bought my 1440p 144hz tn, most of the ips had issues with freesync or gsync hz ranges stuttering blurring and other issues. I am hoping there will be some issue free high res medium to high refesh wide screens available when I next upgrade.

980ti to a freesync monitor myself. Tearing doesn't exist for me, despite the lack of G-sync. I played on a G-sync monitor and couldn't tell the difference...

I also used the freesync on my monitor when I had an AMD card and didn't notice a difference. Tearing isn't a big deal when pushing higher frames it seems

Seeing that the 4770K (along with the rest of the Haswell line) had an integrated FIVR for power delivery, that would make same-socket compatibility rather dicey. The same goes for the 8700K / Coffee Lake line due to needing to utilize an additional 30 "reserved" or previously-unused pins to deliver power to the CPU.

intel could have allowed to use the pins from beggining on Z170 to make it compatible with incoming CPUs with 6cores there was no excuse even 7700k wasnt really an improvement over 6700k it was the same quad core and even then the z270 has no backwards compatbility( or forward)

Yeah almost like Intel is only looking 6-12 months into the socket future. They could build a future compatible socket to begin with.
