Well my 24 inch monitor died the other day and I've been looking at 1440p monitors. Anyone used this asus monitor before? If the price seems high its because I live in Australia. http://www.ple.com.au/ViewItem.aspx?InventoryItemID=610762&CategoryID=502
I'm currently running an I5 3570k @ 4.2 and a 7870, I know the graphics card isn't ideal but I don't play too many demanding games and I guess I can just lower the resolution to 1080 if need be.
Any feedback would be appreciated, I've considered those korean monitors but I much prefer buying local especially as I want the monitor asap.
Forgot to mention I'll be getting a new nvidia card once the 800 series comes out. Guess I'd rather get a good monitor now and not regret it later. Thanks nicodimus, how well do games run with the 770?
If you planning on upgrading your GPU to the 800 series, I can highly recommend picking up that monitor. I've had one for almost a year and it has been the best monitor I've ever owned. I'm not sure about AMD cards, but you can over clock the refresh rate very well on it with a nvidia GPU. I have had mine stable at 80hz for over 6 months with no issues what so ever. 1440p @80fps has been great. Especially with the beautiful picture this monitor has.
Well I'm really impressed with the Asus monitor. Picture is beautiful and I even tested it out on BF4. Had to drop down to medium settings but I'm getting 60-70 fps on 64 player maps with my 7870. Very happy :-D
