Anyone using a G-Sync Gaming Monitor?

I sort of want to get on the bandwagon but that means replacing both my monitor and GPU and right now I've only earmarked the GPU for replacement (and even then, I haven't been convinced I need to switch over to Nvidia after using ATI/AMD for so many years).

There's a Phillips gsync monitor coming out for a reasonable price. Can't justify dropping a grand on these right now. Really would like to see the tech though.

Looks good and less pricey :)

I'll wait for the superior offering from the competition.

I've thought about selling my VG236H (1080p, 120Hz) to get the PG278Q. My second monitor is a U2713HM (1440p IPS), so it'd be really nice to actually have two monitors of the same size/resolution, but as I mentioned the VG236H is already 120Hz so the main change would be gsync. Not sure I can justify gsync/monitor consistency for like $600 without seeing it in person. I'll likely just wait until the tech is more common and freesync/that displayport standard are out so prices are reasonable.

I really want one but I can't even spend $600 on my desktop, let alone the monitor.

$650? lol

The "gaming" tag arbitrarily adds $200 to the price.
The arbitrary Nvidia "tax" adds another $200 to the price.

So let me get this straight. At bare minimum you're going to have to drop $1000-$1100 to be able to enjoy games at both solid 1080p60 and with Gsync tech...and that's just on a gpu and monitor. Nvidia making that strong case for both Radeon users to switch sides and console gamers to take a bigger look at PC.

Nividia cut the s*** out. You're supposed to be enticing more people to come over to the industry not siphoning out as much money as possible from the handful of whales that are already here like mobile apps.

I just purchased the modded Asus VG248QE. Couldn't hold back any longer.


I own that monitor but haven't done the g sync mod to it yet. Is it worth it? I can't even notice screen tearing on it as is, and the LightBoost is amazing.

i also got a rog swift pg278q. counter strike global offensive looks great. so strange to not see screen tearing. always played with vsync off before because i didnt want the input lag.


I could never play anything with V-sync/Triple buffering off :X

I have a pg278q. It's pretty awesome. I wouldn't consider buying a non g-sync monitor anymore.
