    Is G-Sync still worth it? Seeking advice for monitor & GPU upgrades

    I forgot to mention, I'll be going the 1440p route and plan on actually playing more of my Steam library but wanna maintain high framereates and high-ish detail & settings at 1440p and had my eye on the GTX 1070 ti & RTX 2060 largely for this reason. Sorry, I forgot to post that.

    Is G-Sync still worth it? Seeking advice for monitor & GPU upgrades

    To mods- I wasn't sure if this topic belonged in Video Cards or Displays so feel free to move this thread if it doesn't belong. So with nVidia now caving and supporting Adaptive Sync/FreeSync now, I'm trying to figure out if G-Sync monitors are truly worthless and should never be considered at...

    PC Speaker recommendations?

    I'm considering picking up a new pair of speakers for my desktop and i'm not sure of what to go for. I've been eyeing the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 based on this thread for a good while now and was considering picking up a pair. Before I did, I was wondering what other PC speakers are worth picking...

    Mid/Full sized Case Recommendations

    I've got a Fractal Design Define R4 case for my build, but unfortunately, some components went missing a while back and it's a bit of a pain to put back together, so I'm looking to look for a decent replacement and actually put it together properly, either full-size or mid-size. Here's my build-...

    AOC G2460PG constant flicker

    My monitor is constantly flickering from black to picture, until eventually the picture looks all corrupted with vertical lines and I have to reset my desktop. What the hell is going on? I'm running Win7 64bit with a Asus GeForce GTX 970 on a AOC G2460PG monitor. I'm also running a lg 24gm77 as...

    Getting the most optimal G-Sync settings for emulators (Round freaking 2)

    Okay, I'm at my wit's end with eliminating the stutter 100 percent in RetroArch, so for now, I'm gonna see what I can do about other emulators, but I need some advice on nVidia control panel settings. Here's what I plan on using- RetroArch (for mostly everything) Dolphin PuNES Nestopia...

    Getting best G-Sync performance in MAME & RetroArch

    How user friendly is GM? I want to mess around with the MESS portion of MAME again, mostly for MSX. I'm used to the GUI versus command line.

    Getting best G-Sync performance in MAME & RetroArch

    Also to add, I'm still getting crackling audio in RA, though it seems to happen every minute or so. It was noticeable when I played StarFox 2 via Higan.

    Getting best G-Sync performance in MAME & RetroArch

    It's a standard desktop I use for everything, including gaming. I'd like to build a HTPC with GroovyMAME & Lakka for a comfy CRT setup though. And believe me, you have no idea how badly I want a CRT right now, especially the large professional broadcast displays. I'm lucky to even find a...

    Getting best G-Sync performance in MAME & RetroArch

    I'm messing around with the latest nightly and have copied these settings (including bigbluefe's recommendation to disable "Threaded Optimization" and force GSYNC for the RetroArch exe. There's still some very minor hitching, but compared to before, it's actually tolerable, though not as smooth...

    Getting best G-Sync performance in MAME & RetroArch

    It seems MAME is still difficult to deal with, even with G-Sync. I went back to mameuifx64 0.169 only to deal with stuttering audio, and it's driving me crazy.

    Getting best G-Sync performance in MAME & RetroArch

    After reading bigbluefe's latest thread regarding his YT videos and from my own personal experiences, it seems like RetroArch isn't performing too well with G-Sync enabled. While the lack of tearing & latency is really nice, I can't help but notice some slight stuttering during gameplay and I...

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    Is it worth getting one used? I've been reading the replies in my thread, and am already having second thoughts if it's too much effort to maintain. I also have no clue on how well CRT.Emudriver will function with it.

    Huh. Even with crt_emudriver and the appropriate Radeon card? What's the model number of that Samsung?

    FW900 question

    So I may finally have a shot of grabbing a FW900 for about 400 bucks. I'm building a new PC and largely plan on playing emulators and wanted a good monitor and have always heard high praise about this one. There's just one thing I need to know- How well does this thing handle custom refresh...

    Eizo EV2336W question, and other monitors with a "through" function

    I tried to send a PM to Dcode when I read his old thread about this monitor, but I don't think they ever went out. I say his old thread talking pretty positive about this monitor and was considering picking up one in the future. I just need to know something- Does this monitor have a "through"...

    [Request] Does your Monitor support below 60/55hz?

    I'd like to make a request- I made a thread on recommendations of flat panel monitors that support weird refresh rates, mostly for emulation. http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1857385 As igluk pointed in that thread, the Iiyama monitor supported between 49.200hz and 76.300hz. Does your...

    Flat Panels for Retro Emulation

    Neat, I didn't know that Iiyama monitor supported those refresh rates. Unfortunately, they aren't selling it in the US, or most of their monitors apparently. And for a "cheap" display, it's gonna cost about 400 bucks to import it from Euorpe. The 24gm77-b looks interesting. Anyone know what in...

    Flat Panels for Retro Emulation

    Very informative post, thanks! Another question- That 27MB65PY-B looks really interesting, but is it possible to have the monitor running to match the frequency of, say, R-Type @ 55hz & Game Boy @ 59.73Hz in Libretro MAME? Kinda something like G-Sync, but manually, be it in software or...

    How's the input lag? Good for twitchy action games and even rhythm stuff like Beatmania?

    Flat Panels for Retro Emulation

    I'm looking for a good, fast LCD monitor for retro emulation. While I'd like to get my hands on a CRT monitor, I'm very picky about what I'm looking for and after months of searching around and coming up empty handed, I've pretty much decided to cut my losses and go the flat panel route for...
