FIRST THINGS FIRST



HOW TO JOIN THE CLUB

(you MUST have at least 1 1440p or a higher resolution monitor in order to join the club. Surround is only welcome if a 1440p or a higher resolution monitor is involved)

To join the club please take a picture of your monitor or monitors and make sure you attach your name on a wordpad or on a piece of paper right next to the monitor. Like the Example below



I already added few poeple without proof because when the club started, pictures were not required. It would be nice if they could post their pictures, as I will be posting their pictures next to their names on the list below. New members will have to show pictures of their setup and name as well. You can send me a PM too.

Below is the list of fellow OCN members that are gaming in 1440p or above. First page is for the 1440p gamers and the second page is for the 1600p gamers. (Notice the clickable 1600p link on the bottom of the chart.)

Please if you change your GPU or if you buy a new monitor or sell the one you have now, let me know via this thread or PM so I can update the list.

Last but not least, if I updated your information incorrectly, or if I didn't add you at all, please let me know.

1440p and Above Gaming Club Member's List

(When the club first started showing pictures of the monitors was not required, therefor if you see a member without a picture attached to his/her monitor's brand, know that the specific user joined the club before the picture requirement. Currently all new members require to show us a picture of their monitors though)

Most Popular GPUs in the Club

(this list is by NO MEANS for flame wars. Just to give an idea on what GPUs are favoured within the club. It does not neccesarily mean that the highest quantity GPU is best for 1440p)

LIST OF KNOWN 1440p+ MONITORS and EST. PRICES

Below is the list of known 1440p+ monitors. Since the Korean manufacturers really do not have a site of their own and linking ebay is against the TOS, i did not link those monitors. The well known brands are linked to their official sites for info on these monitors.

I also wrote down the lowest prices I could find for each monitor for 4 regions. USA, UK, Canada and Europe. For US prices of well known brands I used amazon.com, for UK prices of well known brands I used amazon.co.uk, for Canadian prices of well known brands I used amazon.ca and for EU prices of well known brands I used amazon.de ... The pricing of Korean monitors are done via ebay and since they are the same for all regions, I just converted them to the current currency rates.

1440P OR ABOVE SCREENSHOTS FROM OUR USERS

( You can take screenshots from Steam by pressing F12, however steam takes screenshots in the .jpg format, which does not capture the moment perfectly well. I would recommend you to take screenshots via programs like Msi Afterburner or Fraps, so you can set it to capture screenshots in .png format which captures the moment much better than the .jpg format.)

IMPORTANT NOTICE : As you can see, the way I create the lists is that i give a link to that specific post where your screenshots are. When you want to add 1440p(or above) screenshots please make sure that all of the screenshots for a specific game are always on the 1st post you started posting screenshots to. Having all your specific game related screenshots under 1 post is much ideal than seeing it scattered. Click the screenshots link of Crysis 1 on the below list, and you will see that I first uploaded 5 screenshots as Batch 1, and a day later I added 5 more screenshots as batch 2 in the same post, instead of creating another post with the new screenshots about a game I already uploaded screenshots of. This way the thread and the list below will be much more clear and simple. Also if you can not remember where you posted your screenshots before in this thread, the list below will guide you. Not every single game you want to post screenshots of have to be in 1 post, but make sure that you dont have more than 1 post per 1 game. Now, roll the screenshots out. Some of us might wonder how a game LOOKS in 1440p as well.

IMPORTANT NOTICE 2 : Below when you click on a fellow OCN member's name right next to a game, you will be taken directly to the post where he/she provided us with screenshots. However if there are lots of pictures being loaded up at that specific page of that post, the browser page you are using might slide a little bit lower/higher. If when clicking on a name you do not see yourself being in the right post, just look 1-2 posts below/above.

You should. The games became even more alive after switching to 1440p recently. The graphisc, the details, the beauty of 27" is great. I am glad that I did not purchase a 1080p monitor in 27" because I believe 27" deserves an at least 1440p resolution.

@ everyonelse

The 1440p resolution is a beast though. I always turn of the MSAA as i felt that need of MSAA in 1440p is not as great as 1080p or any other resolution. FXAA is doing its thing for me and I am happy with it. Last night when I played some Battlefield 3, everthing on Ultra, No MSAA, High FXAA, my memory hit 1600 levels. I believe disabling Windows Areo will take the memory levels a bit down and I will try that.

I also played some Skyrim last night, (it is amazing in 1440p) but as demending. I also turned off MSAA but turned on FXAA, I set eevrything at HIGH, not Ultra, and my frames were around 60 which was nice. The memory never went above 900mhz. No mods though.

I am really going to be adding a 2nd 670 for sure.

I turned off any type of Vsync, as i dont mind a little bit of screen tearing but i hate the occasional fps drops when Vsync is ON, and wanted to give Mass Effect 1 a shot, I know it is an old game but I want to play through the entire series as I never played 2 and 3, anyway, even in Mass Effect 1 i saw my FPS dropping below 60 at some cases. I truly did not expect that.

Not to mention that my GPU is running hotter now. I might sell my Gigabyte 670 and get one with a blower fan as I Believe 2 Gigabyte 670s with custom coolers that dump air inside the case might be way too hot in 1440p.

Added.

Are you thinking of adding a 2nd Gigabyte 670?

I am actually currently happy with a single Gigabyte 670 Windforce but might be adding a 2nd one just for the heck of it. I sometimes have dips to 40 or 50 in games and I would relly like to keep the 60fps stability as much as I can.

I would like to get another, but I don't really need to. Right now I'm not playing any games that I can't keep 60fps or higher.

Same boat. I really dont need to but it would be nice. However I am playing Skyrim and BF3 at the moment so another 670 would be nice for those games.

Might be a driver issue if you dipped below 60 on ME1. You may have mentioned it earlier, but what clocks are you running your 670 at? I got a dud of an overclocker that would only KB up to 1215. After using the ftw unlocked voltage bios i can get KB to 1254.

I am guessing so too as ME1 should be 60fps stable no matter what with a 670.

My 670 is a dud as well and I am currently running it at stock. Funny thing is that i had a stable OC @ 1230mhz and no problems, however when I switched to 1440p gaming that OC didnt become stable anymore. That was interesting. Now I am running at stock settings but I will be OCin mildy soon.

I just played some Crysis 2 with FXAA on and I averaged 45 FPS in multiplayer. The memory hit 1700mhz. Everything is at Maximum but I dont have the high resolution and the DX11 patches installed.

I am actually thinking of switching to a 4GB 670 or an 680. Also since in 1440p the GPUs run hotter, and if i go SLI, a blower fan might be ideal, but I love how the Gigabyte 670 is quiet.

I know I don`t have 1440p + but I'm looking for the cheapest matte monitor that's 1440p plus so the catleaps are out. Thanks.

Also with all the ocing 670s discussion I'd like to add my results. 1287 boost and +400 men right now. Still pushing it though, and as I don't have a 680 PCB card I probably won't unlock the voltage.

Lastly iARDAs have you tried adaptive vsync?
