    Which Gpu and 27 inch monitor?

    I just picked up the Acer XF270HU 27" IPS FreeSync Gaming Monitor 144 Hz 4ms Response Time for 399 on a special on new egg. The monitor is AWESOME! I don't have AMD cards to take advantage of freesync but I don't have tearing anyway the way I set up my games. Highly recommended monitor for...

    GIGABYTE GTX 760 OC Version Video Card Review @ [H]

    Nice card, picked one up with the game (splinter cell) deal. Very quite and cool.

    Pulling the trigger: 760(SLI) vs 770.

    The 760s in SLI will destroy the 770s. Buying a gtx 670 now is bad advice as you won't find those under 300 but you can get a 760 now with a free game (splinter cell) so like, 200 for the card. I'd get the 760 and SLI later, performance about the same as a 670 but much cheaper, and SLI will...

    NVIDIA GeForce R319 Drivers (320.00 BETA)

    Stuttering gone in bf3; running 670 gtx SLI. I like these better than 314.22/pervious drivers. Smooth bf3 gameplay with vsync on and triple buffering on

    3D Vision: Your best game experiences

    Without a doubt the best 3d game I've ever played was Dead Space 3; it's one of those games I won't play in 2D cause the 3d is so good. However, I had to use the HELIX MOD fix for 3dvision to get it proper, but once tweaked it's so good you can't play 2d. http://helixmod.blogspot.com/

    Interesting data on Crossfire vs SLI

    People are trying for 120 FPS games like bf3-- I am because I have 120 Hz monitor and I run it with lightboost/0 motion blur. So it has to hit 120 fps plus deal with 3d overhead.

    Galaxy GTX 670 GC 4GB $379.99 amir @ TigerDirect!

    OK, thanks. I rarely have any problems with a video card but occasionally have had to RMA (gtx 280 era comes to mind); hopefully won't be an issue but if so I'll do whatever necessary. I bought on ebay and didn't consider the warranty implications.

    Asus VG248QE 144hz 3D Vision 2: The Official Thread

    If it is flipping in and out of 3d in game with ctl-T then it's working in game; when you are in desktop, try to alter the OSD settings; you will only see contrast and lightboost options available to modify. It will only always be in LB mode if you've set the stereoscopic settings to be on...

    Asus VG248QE 144hz 3D Vision 2: The Official Thread

    You are wrong, NJames, you won't be able to do the 3d without the nvidia card; and similarly see my post above. You will be able to play games at 144hz.

    Asus VG248QE 144hz 3D Vision 2: The Official Thread

    Ya, you'll have to use the hack unless you buy a nvidia 3dvision kit. That's what I did and I love it. Games like BATMAN and DEADSPACE 3 are absolutely stunning in 3d! (with the help of HELIX mod); not to mention watching 3d videos, 3d pics and 3d movies on my blu-ray. Highly recommended...

    Galaxy GTX 670 GC 4GB $379.99 amir @ TigerDirect!

    If my card breaks and it's not in warranty can I send it to galaxy for repairs? I may have no choice, as I don't think I'm going to have either of those bits of info.

    Asus VG248QE 144hz 3D Vision 2: The Official Thread

    I'm confused. I wasn't talking about instructions, I'm running LB 24/7; I was interested in VEGA's settings if he's changed them at all. I'm using his nvidia CP recommendations from a point earlier in this thread. No big deal really, but anything helps and normal ICC profiles uploaded in this...

    Asus VG248QE 144hz 3D Vision 2: The Official Thread

    Not PM, do it here. I am using your settings you posted before at 10% LB; I'd like to know if you've changed anything. I"m using contrast 75, but find I need to increase the LB setting in BF3 especially as it's kindof dark.

    Galaxy GTX 670 GC 4GB $379.99 amir @ TigerDirect!

    I'm getting a gtx 670 card from an ebay transaction; It is NIB but I"m not sure I can get their receipt and I don't think they've registered it. Can this card be registered for warranty and/or what warranty will I have? Sounds like I may be out of luck.

    Galaxy Dual Fan GTX 670 2GB $330 AR

    What are you talking about? This is the lowest price for the 67NPH6DV6KXZ I've seen. What do mean a 'non-blower'? This is the best Galaxy card to buy in my opinion.

    Asus VG248QE 144hz 3D Vision 2: The Official Thread

    Well, I love your icc profile for the desktop at 20 brightness and 80 contrast (or 65 or 75 whatever I fancy); I think it has great depth and color. The LB profile I was hoping would work but I'm thinking games are just their own creature. In general, games need high gamma and contrast, and...

    Asus VG248QE 144hz 3D Vision 2: The Official Thread

    Wow! I really appreciate this, unfortunately it's still just too dark for gaming (bf3 in particular); and I notice your profiles lean toward the red spectrum. It's something that's jarring at first, then I start to like it. For desktop is awesome, but for lightboost I guess the best solution...

    Cr4zy PLEASE do this; or could you PM me if you do so? I use your normal ICC profile but it's way too dark in BF3 but looks so good on desktop; but I am running LIGHTBOOST 24/7. If you could make a spyder profile for Lightboost users I guarantee many would be soo happy!

    Tweaking Skyrim Image Quality @ [H]

    gUYS, this is easily fixed by forcing vsync and using a fps limiter to around 45-60 fps, I like 45 the best. It cures the stutter. The best way to do this is use a fxaa injector mod such as iccc which includes ENB series stuff that gives you a fps coutner and limiter plus the beneifits of...

    Tweaking Skyrim Image Quality @ [H]

    Why didn't you guys analyze the effect of enabling ambient occlusion? I has this enabled and it makes a huge difference in overall image Iquality. For those of you worried about performance use oblivion compatibility rather than skyrim looks and performs better I think.

    What does FXAA on Skyrim do?

    More importantly than this run ambient occlusion via nvidia tweak.

    skyrim settings: Should i use any AA if I check the FXAA option?

    I think FXAA actually compliments the game very well, I prefer the look it gives, some call it blurry, to me it seems more like artistic. I'm running 4xMSAA with FXAA.

    Kingston HyperX SSD 240GB & 120GB SSD Storage Review @ [H]

    There is a registry hack that amounts to changing a 1 to a 0 that should let you boot into windows in AHCI mode after a reboot. Can't research it now but I've done it before. Of course, you could always reinstall the OS with AHCI enabled in the bios and that will work.

    I agree they would, unless the 1.5 VRAM limitation comes into play with newer games. I don't know about SKYRIM, but bf3 may be showing us the future. If that does happen, I don't want to be stuck with 2 1.5gb cards. =\ I guess youre right though, if it's not that much of a factor, the SLI...
