Just realized it's DP 1.2 only effectively, so you would need no less than three NVIDIA GPU's to connected a surround setup... If Surround allows the Lightboost feature (G-Sync does not currently in Surround).

GPU: TITAN RTX - 2175 MHz, liquid cooled
CPU: 9900K 5.4 GHz, liquid cooled
MB: ASUS Maximus XI Gene
RAM: G.Skill 16GB 4600 MHz
SSD: Intel Optane 905P - 960GB
DISPLAY: LG C9 OLED / Lenovo Legion Y27gq-25 / LG 38GL950G

Wouldn't you want tri-SLI anyways to run 3x 1440p monitors? I guess you could do two, but that's a lot of GPU muscle required...... more than 4k

Looks awesome, I'd love to give it a try in person.
My current Asus "evo monitor" is 5 years old now but still looks great to my eyes.

Evo monitor works great for fighting games but I'm not a fan of its picture. Not that it's bad but pretty mediocre compared to the best.

I don't think it's that over priced for those specs. Maybe its just me. I mean the 27" proart model retails for the same, so by getting it up to 120hz, gsync, and lowering it to 1ms response time seems like it'd make the panel retail for about the same as the pro art.

Wow.....a TN panel? They couldn't hit it out of the park, could they?

If this would have been a VA panel it would have knocked it out of the park, just crushed it.......yet they stick with TN.

As someone with the same display as you....

"Nope!"

TN is completely awful, I was just at my office looking at a TN going "Dang, IPS is so much better".

I guess the reason I want to get rid of this monitor is for the countless hours of tweaking timings to get 120Hz but even then I get screen door effects, buzzing noise, random black screens, need constant patching with NVidia drivers....

I personally prefer an 800$ monitor with no tweaking required than a 600$ monitor that constantly require tweaking and still has problems.

I also like the idea of G-sync and willing to give it a shot.

Really, really REALLY hoping they come out with another that has a matching frame/case, but uses DVI so that way those of us who like our multiple monitor setups can enjoy the party fully (I only care about gaming on one monitor, but the extra monitor or two is too handy to lose - it isn't that hard to ask for everything to look similar, is it? tongue.gif)
