You must set refresh rate on desktop to 90 Hz. And in game if the game has the refresh rate setting.
Why is that? because the standard freesync range is only from 35-90hz? I mean the panel is a 144hz and while doing other stuff than gaming, i would like to take advantage of that nice refresh rate. So setting it to 90hz does not make sense while i understand what you are saying
The way i understand the freesync is just that it should activate whenever the FPS dips below 90 FPS.. or am i mistaken?

I love my monitor, picked it up this past September on newegg for $575. It's now my center piece in my monitor setup for work/gaming. Haven't gone up to 120 or 144 yet. I game at 1440p so 90 is all I have it set to with freesynch enabled.
Anyone use this monitor with a console hooked up as well? I know with a 30 fps game it shouldn't be a problem since we're looking at a 33.33ms frame time, but for 60hz capped games its 16.66ms, and tft shows a total lag of 17ms at 60hz, so i'd expect there to be some frame skipping in such a scenario.
Went ahead and put down an order on one of these threw newegg on the count of the sale, came out to $525. Yeah i use an nvidia card so i cannot use freesync, but with polaris on the way it won't be long until i will get to use it.
Essentially i weighed my options between this and the xb271hu and with this current sale im saving $250 going with the mg279q over the Acer. That's $250 that will go towards a new GPU instead of a monitor that is more or less equal to the asus but uses Gsync instead. The 35-90hz window is rather disappointing when Gsync can work from 30-144hz, but i plan to change it to 57-144hz as i never plan to drop below 60fps in any game ever.
Fingers crossed i don't get backlight bleeding mess, else the lottery begins
