Are G-Sync monitors worth it? I have lots of money to waste on gaming shit.
>>
cant you just tell your graphics card to pick a refresh rate and stick to it without having to buy a monitor for twice what its worth?
>>

>I have lots of money to waste
go for it

>>322474823
I'm afraid that doesn't work like that.
>>

>never experience screentearing unless you play Quake and get 200fps
>>
>>322474639
I have a better question since that's a stupid one.

Is Nvidia 3D Vision worth it? I have never seen anyone mention it even once.
>>
>>322475726
i doesn't work like that x2
>>
>>322475727
It looks kinda neat in third-person games, but it's distracting in first-person shooters because of the way the crosshair is displayed. If the game supports 3D mode it will adjust its own crosshair to match the spot you're aiming at, in others the Nvidia software will place another crosshair on your screen.

Posting on a 144hz 1440p G-sync monitor right now.

Good fucking god yes its worth it, 60fps will look absolutely disgusting to you after a day. Come ascend with us anon.

Explain

too lazy ask google
>>
>>322476152
So basically another useless nvidia gimmick.
>>
>>322476374
Considering you'll have to buy a 120+hz monitor and have it run at 60hz (twice) to get the 3D effect, yes, it's pretty much unnecessary.
>>
>>322475726
>>322476184
Tearing doesn't only occur when they are too many frames sent to the monitor but also when the monitor and GPU aren't sync'd.
>>
Gsync is dead.
>>
>>322476180
He's asking if g-sync is worth it not if a high refresh rate is worth it.
>>
>>322476184
Just because you're getting less frames than your refresh rate that doesn't mean you won't experience tearing with vsync off. Tearing occurs anytime the GPU is producing a frame rate that doesn't sync with the refresh rate. For 60hz, you still always experiencing tearing unless your frame rate is 60, 30, or, 15. For 144hz it's 144, 72, 36, 18, or 9. That's why it's always better to have vsync on. Gsync and Freesync are supposed to eliminate tearing on any reasonable frame rate, bit the price isn't worth it. You might as well buy an over powered GPU for that price.
>>
What about AMD's Freesync or whatever you called it?

Anyone here experienced it?
>>
>>322476184
google runt frames
>>
Have a Gsync monitor.
1080P 27" 144hz.
Cost around 500USD
Was it worth it? I've never had screen tearing in my life anymore and hate my old 24" 1080p 144hz monitor but use it as a 2nd.
You can turn off Vsync as well and never have input lag again (Which was eliminated far before this but w.e)

>You can turn off Vsync as well and never have input lag again (Which was eliminated far before this but w.e)
lol? How do you eliminate the input lag caused by vsync?
>>
>>322479198
Older computers (Less powerful) when Vsync was enabled and with triple buffering it would enduce a small amount of input lag. 10-15ms.
It was null and void when the first quadcores came through the lineup but most titles that use the CPU to the full extent today (i5s mostly) still experience this.
>>
>>322479291
That's because your inputs get lost in the frames that aren't shown because of v-sync right?
>>
>>322479198
Adaptive vsync
>>
>>322479509
Sometimes the case. There are other reasons but I can't recall them from memory. Go look it up.
>>
Totally. Vsync being off allows less input delay and frees up resources, allowing you to reach higher average frames. Plus, buttery fucking smooth.
>>

>>
>>322479586
Alright.

>>322479514
If i'm not mistaken, adaptative vsync only turn off the vsync fonction when dipping below the refresh rate so you won't see a huge stutter with a frozen frame.
>>
>>322479705
Oh right that's that other thing with Vsync if it dips too far it locks you to 30 FPS in most titles.
>>
>>322479634
google. Otherwise you can only take it from personal experience. Having hardware that can destroy a game and cause an astronomical amount of FPS vs a lower end PC and both having Vsync on the lower one will experience a lot of input lag.
>>
>>322480342
>anecdotal evidence
Neat.

This is why I don't take tech advice from /v/.
>>
>>322475727
It's a waste of time, I got one fairly early on. Ditched it after a few days but kept the 120hz monitor. I think it was Dead Space 2 that ran really well with it but everything else had problems. Also it sucked that you were buying hardware/lowering settings to get to 120fps just so it could be halved.

I just want to know why you think that's true even when it's blatantly false.
>>
>>322478537
It's exactly the same, but cheaper and with more support from monitor manufacturers because it's not really AMD's tech, but VESA's.
>>
>>322474639
Hells no. It's overpriced shit. Only retarded nvidiots would buy them.

Smart people will just get some korean 144hz monitors or one of those korean IPS monitors.
>>
>>322481074
do I need an AMD card for it or is it supposed to be gpu agnostic?
>>
>>322482090
It's supposed to be GPU agnostic, but nVidia doesn't support it.

>>322482090
Since it's VESA, it's supposed to work with everything. But as >>322482175 said, the folks at Nvidia want to push their own shitty proprietary variant so they don't support it.
Same with TressFX (Gotta have their own shitty variant with Hairworks) and other open techs.

Got one my self, best purchase ever although i think normal brands are around the same price these days

Rog?

All I wanted was this simple 24" 1080p monitor in 144hz that I saw on fry's electronics site for 250$. It said in store pick up so when I went they were all out of all the monitors similar to that. Thus based slav that was working their gave me 10% off of 700$ on this 27" 1440p monitor in 144hz. Plus I had 300$ in store credit from a return earlier in the week. I never knew playing with this response time would be so refreshing. Overall I'm glad about the monitor I have for the price I paid. I only got that discount too because there was just one dead pixel on the top right corner, I made out like a bandit on that one.

its great, made shitty ass arkham knight playable at least because that shit is unstable as fuck , basically picks up the slack for shit devs who don't optimize
If you are playing games like tf2 at 200+ its not worth it tho, really only needed for games that fluctate in fps below 60 ,which tends to be a lot of console ports
