Just got my first Gsync monitor and games are so fucking smooth.
Why aren't you using a Gsync monitor yet /v/?
Until an affordable TV using FreeSync or VSync technology comes along, I'm going to be stuck with borderless windows and VSync.
In case it wasn't clear, I use my TV for PC gaming.
Vastly overpriced shit. Should of gone with amd freesync and gotten one of those korean 144hz monitors for half the price of what you paid for your acer.
>29" 2560*1080 21:9 LG freesync with 99% sRGB coverage for 250 dollars
Your monitor's refresh rate is only 60hz. Come back when you get at least a 120hz refresh rate monitor you casual.
>he doesn't know how to read
It's 75, actually.
But if you really want to play the hz game there are multiple 120+hz freesync monitors under 300 dollars. I chose IPS over refresh rate, but the difference between 75hz freesync and 120hz freesync is a shit ton less than normal 75 to 120
Nigger you don't push a steady 60 fps in GTA V.
And even if you did, you get screen tearing unless you're using vsync which brings in the mouse lag.
>inb4 he says he can't see it
>doesn't realize his eyes are shit and screen tearing is unholy garbage
29um67-p. Currently 320 on amazon but they have dropped to ~250 pretty regularly.
Strange enough, the LG site showed the suggested MSRP as 250 for a few weeks and recently changed it back to 450, which would be ridiculous.
Variable refresh rate is awesome. I have such a monitor, I'm not saying which because you fucking retards will argue among yourselves about the brand, but there isn't much of a difference anyway so it doesn't matter.
VARIABLE REFRESH RATE KICKS ASS
If you haven't seen it, you can't imagine it. The things you can read in reviews everywhere are all true, especially when they say that you won't want to go back once you start using VRR. No screen tearing, no micro stutter. Sounds simple (and it is), but it improves the user experience tremendously. You don't realize how nasty stuttering and tearing is until it's gone.
It isn't worth the price premium if you're not going to have a monitor that looks good anyway. If you get a VRR monitor and it has a TN panel, you're throwing your money away. There will be a niche group of people who absolutely MUST HAVE TN responsiveness, but 90 percent of you are not them. You don't play Counter Strike exclusively, you don't constantly hit 144 fps. You play other games where 3 or 4 ms response time doesn't make a difference. I am so sick of seeing people shit on IPS panels, even ones with very reasonable response time, because they think they are so goddamn good that they consistently play faster than their fucking displays. Wake the fuck up. Anything below 5 is just fine.
Anyway, wether you're into AMD or Nvidia, get a fuckin good monitor because this tech makes it as good as buying a new video card. I will never go back. Give it some time if you want the rest of the market to catch up to the early adopters.
Also 1440p max, don't get sucked into the 4k nonsense, that belongs on TV displays. 23' to 24 inches only for 1080p. Don't buy generic Korean shit unless you want to have to replace the shit in a year and have shitty, inconsistent performance.
I think the Asus ROG IPS one is more expensive.
I think they are both the same though in terms of build quality and theres always the unlucky chance of getting one with dead pixels and/or excessive IPS glow.
Either way, whichever one you decide, make sure you get it from a place that you can easily and quickly RMA if you get a bad one.
The IPS ROG has the same features as the Acer, but it's advertised as having a 166 hz refresh rate or something. However, it can only achieve that with an extreme overclock setting that causes its response time to increase, and 166 hz is overkill anyway. It's also having the same quality control issues the Acer one had until they got their shit together.
Basically, if you want to take a chance on getting a fucked up monitor, but one that has a generally better looking design and some more inputs and a slightly faster overclock setting (trading off some response time), go for it.
If you don't care about HDMI and you don't give a shit about how 'gamer' it looks and you are fine with 144 hz refresh rate, but a consistent 4 ms response time, the Acer is a safer bet.
Bonus FYI: The higher refresh rate is noticeable all the time, even when you're doing desktop and browsing shit. Your mouse cursor moves like a fuckin figure skater, it's amazing.
>Horrible color accuracy, no adaptive sync, good luck with that warranty return and you better hope you don't get one with dead pixels.
This is bait. In fact, most korean monitors get their panels from big names like LG and Samsung.
The new version of the Acer one has ability to overclock to 165hz as well through the OSD. The first batch was made in April, newer ones made in November.
Both Acer and Asus ones use panels from AU Optronics. Not sure how good they are. But its a shame Samsung and LG aren't making anymore "gamer" targeted monitors.
