Woo, this was my best game ever, yet somehow my team still lost. Usually if I'm doing really good the other team sucks so we easily win. http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/15259053/1/373886055/

Not to mention the price difference is not even 30€ between the Hazro HZ27WC and the Dell U2711, definitely getting the Dell considering their warranty service is excellent and I want the AG Coat.

I considered that as well, but 1920x1200 on a 27" is a huge waste and you'll have to use lots of AA to get rid of the jaggies, I'd rather have a 2560x1440 IPS monitor any day! biggrin.gif
Anyone else playing at 2560x1440?

That is the old Hazro, they have gotten better since then I have read. I was speaking of this one: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MO-011-HO&groupid=17&catid=1120&subcat=

You don't pay VAT and it would come out to around $700 with shipping. That version has the lowest input lag. I don't know how you could have a window directly behind you with any type of monitor. That is no-go #1 for monitor placement. wink.gif

Have you ever used a high-end glossy monitor? I used to be a matte stalwart but I've found glossy to blow them out of the water in every-way, the only trade-off being a little glare during the daytime.

That monitor would make for a superb BF3 single monitor if you were not set on 120Hz. BTW the Dell you want is tested at 30ms input lag. Noooooo way.

spotting can be done on a high power scope at a long distance ...


and you could also take out ennemy at long distance depending on how good you are etc...

Input lag is a bit of a funny thing when dealing with small differences <30ms....

I remember reading a few articles on it when I originally switched from a monitor to a 47" LCD, and then read up on it again when I moved to my 73" DLP for gaming purposes. Now I know that a DLP is definitely on the higher side of input lag, however how much of a difference does it really make???

After doing a bit of searching (again) I came up with 20ms being about 1fps... Now I realize that on a site like this where we strive for the ultimate build and squeeze every last fps we can out of our hardware by OC it the just under 3fps I am losing by sporting a DLP can be a bit of a big deal. That said however I do see some people with lower end setups spending quite a bit extra on lower input lag monitors. I just have to wonder if that extra 200 would be better spent on upgrading other hardware parts instead....


I may have my thinking wrong about how this works, and if so please point it out for me... Also as a bit of fun I just found this a few minutes ago and thought I would share.

http://www.humanbenchmark.com/tests/reactiontime/index.php

I didnt score to well, but plan on coming back when I havent been drinking and seeing if there is a difference between gaming mode on my tv or standard. It would be really nice to see someone do a test of multiple monitors to see how much it really effects their performance.

BTW the name I used is JD Shady (#70 for now) and my setup (if it matters)

Mitsubishi 73738 (Standard mode) (8ft away)
Bluetooth mouse
Other specs below in my sig

If anyone else would like to try post your results of 5 clicks, Im curious to see how bad I did in my state of inebriation.

Sure you can take out enemies at a long distance, but you're not going to be doing the same impact a good recon player is who is sniping up close and using the MAV and also using the Spawn Beacon. One of the most crucial parts of the Recon.

Adding in these scopes encourages camping, camping at further distance at that. Exactly what was not intended for the game, which is why they even named the class Recon.

Sniping at that distance just won't be consistent enough to the point where you would make a big enough impact. Recon players make a huge impact on a team, if not the biggest impact.

Sooooo....BF3 recently got me to resurrect my old DIY PC, and now I'm thinking about upgrading it. Everything under my profile is current except for the memory, which is now 4x2. A couple quick questions if anyone could indulge me....

(1) Is the 8450x2 going to cut the mustard? BF3 runs well enough on my laptop, but I enjoy tooling around with stuff I admittedly know little about.

(2) Should I consider a processor upgrade, or am I still in fairly good shape?

did you mean a good quickscoper ? or did you really mean a good shooter up close ?


why dont they just add a close quarter carbine to the recon class instead of pistol for self defense ?

One of my best games yet:
http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/battlereport/show/15270781/1/328550580/

Some noob stole the AA while I was repairing it and put and end to my anti-air streak--about 12 or 13 air vehicles. Sent a shout out for a soflam near the Forest rocks facing the US side and you should have seen it, completely swung the game we were losing around to our favor..JAVs criss/crossing from everywhere.

Great fun. If BF2 was better than this, I really wish I had taken the time to play it.

>>>Edit:<<< @CRizzy141 That rig should run BF3 fairly well. Decent. But it will depend on the res of your monitor too, bro. (And is your cpu overclocked..?) At 1440x900 my crappy rig runs it just fine. All High, x2 AA, x16 AF, Post Processing Off, Ambient Occlussion Off.
