NVIDIA GTX 590 Owners Club - Page 152

post #1511 of 5154
Question for single GTX 590 and 3D Vision Surround owners:

If you have all 3 DVI-D ports on your card running to 3 120hz panels, how are you getting Blu-Ray HD Surround sound? My understanding is those codecs need an HDMI connection, as my sound card needs an HDMI in from the video card and then runs HDMI out to my receiver to run 7.1 Blu-Ray HD sound.

However, these 120hz displays only do 120hz with a DVI-D connection, so using HDMI even with a DVI-D adapter caps the resolution @ 60hz.

My only option is the digital 2.1 SPDIF running to my receiver with a simulated surround codec, or using headphones with a 7.1 Dolby card adapter.

Is there any other sound cards that can get DolbyHD and DTS-HD from the mobo without having to be connected to the 590?

This little issue is really bumming me out on 3D Surround. How can I game good at FPS if I don't have real location sound via my Home Theater to play off of?

Any ideas for a solution?

In terms of a 120hz 3D monitor, I initially went and bought the Asus VG263H with the bundled Nvidia 3D Vision kit.

Now, I'm a big fan of Asus gaming notebooks. My G73JH-A1 still rocks my world (AMD 5870m in that baby, so no brand bias here)..

However, their monitor left something to be desired. As soon as I fired it up - Huge dead pixel in bottom left center of screen. I took it back, and they had already sold the other one they had. They already had another return on the shelf from the same thing. The PC sales guys said that Asus rocks when it comes to notebooks, but when it comes to PC displays, they're often a disappointment riddled with pixel issues.

So I exchanged it for the 24" BenQ xl2410t. I didn't find many reviews on it, but knew it was LED over LCD and I used to sell BenQ products when working for a high end Home Theater dealer, so I know they're a pretty good brand. Though I read a few QC issues with this monitor with light bleeding, etc. Personally I can deal with light bleed more than a dead pixel sticking out against a moving picture. When that happens my eyes get OCD and just stare at the pixel.. I hate dead or stuck pixels..

And the BenQ? Not only is it a pixel perfect screen, but there is absolutely no light bleed whatsoever on the display. It also sports some of the best blacks I've ever seen for a TN panel. I haven't gotten the change to really put it through it's paces yet, but so far I'm much happier with this one than the Asus.

Cons to the monitor? Out of the box, the calibration is so bad you almost think the display is a POS. But you can get ICC profiles for the display online through Google and once applied, it is a fantastic picture.

The other thing I'm kinda on the fence about, that many others love, is the matte screen. I usually prefer Glossy as I sit in a darkened room and would rather have colors pop, than be slightly dulled out. Plus I don't like the screen door effect some bad matte jobs can have. However, this matte has to be the best one I've ever used as colors do not seem diminished, and only the most faint hints of the screen door effect can be seen against only the blackest of backgrounds when looking at it from an off angle.

It is however, still Matte. So I'm gonna game on it for awhile and see how I like it. But again, I'd rather have a good Matte job on a pixel perfect screen with great blacks for a TN, then a glossy that may or may not have a dead pixel on purchase.

Depending on how I can work out the HD Sound/DVI-D 120hz issue, and how much better it seems to play FPS at 24" @ 120hz with 2.0 sound, vs. 60" Plasma @ 60hz with 7.1 sound, will decide whether I keep this panel or all 3.

I am liking the idea more of just maybe having one 120hz 3D panel and one IPS 2560x1600 panel.

Thanks to all those that get through this book I just wrote and can help me find a solution!

Cheers

Hi sarojz I want to ask you how many fans you have on your computer ?

Hey everyone, been tinkering with my card a bit.... trying to test individual overclock settings to push the max stable I can get on stock volts....

So far I have stable 612(stock) with a stable 1850 memory, but I am still pushing the memory.....

Will post screenshots when I combine them later.

edit:

not stable: 612(stock) and 2004 mem
stable: 612 and 1950 mem

double edit:

I slaved my old gtx 275 for physx.... in batman arkam asylum I am getting 20-30 more fps... and no dips in fps ever, a rock solid 80.....

Thanks. Think I am going to stick with this now. Its powering my U3011 while I have a GT520 powering my dual 20 inch monitors for 2D use.

Just purchased a eVGA GTX 590 Classified to replace my GTX 275s in SLI. Running stock clocks right now while I get used to what this can do. Ordered a new monitor too as what I have at 1680x1050 doesn't do the card justice. Here's some proof pictures I just took along with a question I have, I'm not sure this was answered as I couldn't find it in the search, I figured this was the best place to ask...

I noticed that when using Precision or MSI Afterburner or Rivatuner etc. that the fan speed is always recognized as 0 for GPU1 but not for GPU2. I went to upgrade the bios as was recommended by eVGA to unlock the fans. This made no difference. I noted that the bios versions are different for each GPU, note the attached photo capture.jpg (second to last thumbnail) that I took of Precision's GPU info. Is this normal? How do I have it so it recognizes that GPU1 has the same fan settings as GPU2? Is this possible? And is it normal to have different bios versions for each GPU? This strikes me as odd as well. Is there a way to update the bios so it is the same for each GPU in the card? I've tried plugging the monitor into one gpu or the other while updating the bios, but that doesn't make a difference.

Really thats the only issue that I have run into. I had a GTX 295 and a 9800GX2 through the years and never had this issue with monitoring fans or bios versions being different, so I'm unsure of what the problem is. I notice i'm not the only one. Could you guys give me a hand?

Great card regardless i'm getting mucho performance out of it so far and it runs much cooler than the 275s that I had in SLI. Very pleased.

After all of the conjecture about using a secondary card for Physx, I'm wondering if it's really worth it.

Those of you that have, have you seen that big of a difference?

I've heard it "helps" with CS5 and other work-based apps...Obviously it makes a big difference in games...But, is it difference enough to warrant a 550ti?

I've used a seperate card before but, from what I've heard, it's a bit different with the 590...Any comments as such?
