    Monitor for Xbox One

    Any reason for the 24 over the 27 besides personal preference? I know the 27 has all those extra inputs that the cheaper 2411Z doesn't have so it's prolly got a bit less input lag.

    Monitor for Xbox One

    So what exactly would i need to tweak or change between a 30fps game and a 60fps game and is there anyway to easily make them presets so i can jump between the settings as needed?

    Monitor for Xbox One

    Thanks for the link XoR, I've been reading the forums there and I found this post in response to the same question: But not all console games run 60fps so will I see issues with this 60hz strobing in games that run sub 60fps?

    Monitor for Xbox One

    Figured I'd bump this rather than make a new thread. I'm in the same boat, any other suggestions for a 27 inch with low input lag and ghosting?

    Upgraded from a 6950 to a GTX 780 and my Windows Experience Index Score went down?

    I think the games i'm not seeing an improvement in are games that are very cpu intensive and thus my graphics card was never the lowest common denominator my cpu was. I'll have to figure out how to overclock my old sandybridge cpu and see if that helps.

    Upgraded from a 6950 to a GTX 780 and my Windows Experience Index Score went down?

    Just installed this OC'ed GTX 780 graphics card, which is way more powerful than anything else in my 2 year old computer. When i updated my windows score it dropped in both graphics and hard drive speed...what in the world is going on? My performance in some games hasnt improved.

    4GB GTX 770, 3GB GTX 780, or 6GB GTX 780 for 1440p

    So I ordered the 780 but it's come to my attention I'll likely have to flash my mobo (Z68A-GD55 (B3)) to run this card, after which I wont really be able to overclock my sandy bridge cpu very effectively. (see post here) I'm not reay to drop another $500-600 on a mobo and cpu so my questions...

    4GB GTX 770, 3GB GTX 780, or 6GB GTX 780 for 1440p

    Thats the GTX 780Ti though I'm only looking to get a regular OC'ed 780.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Roundup

    So should these results ring true if I were to go with an overclocked 780? MSI still the way to go?

    4GB GTX 770, 3GB GTX 780, or 6GB GTX 780 for 1440p

    So I'm ordering from newegg and I'd like a card that is quiet and comes pre-overclocked so i don't have to fuss with any of that stuff ever. I don't see the twin Frozr on newegg any other suggestions?

    4GB GTX 770, 3GB GTX 780, or 6GB GTX 780 for 1440p

    Oh alright I couldn't find any comparisons between the two at 1440p I knew it was about 25% faster than the 2gb version at 1080 but i thought it scaled better. Looking at the current newegg offerings which oc'ed version of the 780 would you go with? That seems to be the sentiment, should I go...

    4GB GTX 770, 3GB GTX 780, or 6GB GTX 780 for 1440p

    So I'm looking to finally get a shadowplay capable card that can run and record games in 1440p on my UltraSharp U2713HM. I didn't want to spend more than $400 but after some reading I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't bite the bullet and get the 780. A few points I've seen mentioned that...

    Advice on Upgrading GFX Card for Shadowplay

    Well I think I'll order a 4GB 770 from newegg unless someone expects a big price drop in price in the near future. Newegg has no sales tax here, if you were to order now, which would you get? $379 GIGABYTEhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125462 5% off $389 PNY...

    Advice on Upgrading GFX Card for Shadowplay

    I get into some BF4 from time to time, I'd obviously like to play at 1440p. Are there any sites where i can do a straight up fps comparison between these cards. I'm kinda dissapointed with how much I'd have to pay to see a marked improvement over a $260 card that i bought two years ago.

    Advice on Upgrading GFX Card for Shadowplay

    Hey now, I'm looking to upgrade to one of Nvidia's new graphics cards capable of shadowplay. Their new proprietary capture software that runs in the background and has little impact on frame rate. My understanding is it works with GTX 650 and higher, so I was hoping to figure out which of those...

    Need 24 - 30'' Monitor from Dell.com for under $400

    I have $350 in dell gift cards that expire next month and I'm looking to replace a 27'' monitor. The dead monitor was a 1440p IPS, one of those Korean Crossover's everyone here was crazy about a year ago. Ideally I would like to find a similarly spec'ed and sized monitor on sale but unless a...

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Well Droc you're not alone, 10 months after buying my Crossover from bigclothcraft, it too has gone black. Power brick still lights up green but the monitor itself is dead. This after having the back lighting on the left side go out and stay out after only a month. At least the stand still works.

    I bought a Crossover 5 months ago from bigclothcraft. Last week I bought a 15ft 24AWG CL2 Dual Link DVI-D Cable to replace the short 5ft 28AWG that came with the monitor. Not sure if it's related but a few days later the led back lighting on the left side went out. It's been out for 3 days aside...

    Alright cool, I found a forum where they said if its a gift there is no fee up to $100 and otherwise its up to $150 so I told him to mark it at $95 if he does gift otherwise mark it $145.

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Bigclothcraft asked me how much to put on the invoice and if he can mark it as gift, i figured they would know the answers for those things to best pass through customs without hassle. I guess I have goggling to do.

    It's been korean thanksgiving the past 3 days but aside from that it sounds like dude is definitely giving you the run around. That's why I'm not leaving feedback on this thing so I have at least some recourse should the thing crap out on me.

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Whelp I ordered the Crossover w/ pivot from bigclothcraft for $388. would have preferred to go with AW but for $40 more I figured I'd take my chances with Bigcloths dodgy power brick. If it burns out before 30 days and he wont send a replacement I can always order a squaretrade warranty can't I?

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    I noticed a few of these guys, in addition to buyout, accept "best offer" on some of these monitors. Anyone been successful with offering lower or am i just begging to be sent their shittiest set that way? Whats the word on the crossover BLADE? No white back and built in speakers anyone have...

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Alright I found this guide posted a few pages back that explains the variations in models. Super helpful, the one thing it didn't mention was if either of the cheaper 2 crossover models (27Q-P LED / 27Q LED) came with built in speakers. I'm no audio snob so something decent for when I'm not...

    Buy Catleap Or Wait On Overlord?

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    What do you think about the two monitors i linked and more importantly the sellers that they're from? Do you think If I use the make an offer option on bigclothcraft's crossover that it would make him give me one with more stuck pixels then I would get if I bought it straight up?

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Yea that sounds pretty brutal, is ta planet better though? I see his feedback is a percent or 2 higher and hes sold twice as much. I'm kinda bummed as I wanted to get the one with the slick crossover stand. Any other reputable sellers with crossover and the one input for $365 or less shipped?

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Thanks I might grab that longer cable, the ta_planet model though is $80 more than the other guys with that stand. That's too rich for my blood, but what wall mount did you buy? Maybe I'll get the basic one with the crappy plastic stand and just wall mount it. If I'm gonna go with the basic...

    That's not too bad, $5 with shipping and I'm not sure I have a DVI DL so I might have to order one of those anyways. If I could bug you with 3 more quick questions.... Is that stand worth $70, It's hard to tell from the pictures does it actually have a slimmer bezel? Do these have built in...

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Yea I said it would be nice but it's not really a priority so for the sake of simplicity and savings I'm thinking I'll forgo HDMI compatibility. After quickly skimming the past few comments it doesn't sound like HDMI is well regarded anyway, especially on a monitor with this resolution. So I...

    Alrighty, what exactly are the defined differences that make that one a good buy for my purposes? I see that it comes with a power adapter unlike some of the sub $300 ones. For Example Is there any chance of seeing a cheaper deal pop up in the next week? I read some people speculating next...

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    So whats the consensus on ordering one of these at this point? I just found out about these today and I'm looking to get a good deal on a new 27 inch + monitor for movies and gaming. From what I can surmise from perusing the threads is these things are cherry picked from a factory lineup of...
