  1. This is what I'm thinking too. Kinda hoping to get one that's unlockable for a free Fury X
  2. So I recently got an Acer xr341ck and I need a new gpu to take advantage of freesync and get enough performance at this resolution. I'm having a tough time deciding between the Fury and Fury X right now. Shopping around, I can get the Sapphire Fury for $475 or the XFX Fury X for $600. I'm having a hard time justifying the $125 premium for the Fury X. I haven't really seen any reports of performance from a Fury at this resolution so does anyone have a set up like this?
  3. I would say a single 980 ti at 3440x1440 is really one of the best case scenarios for taking advantage of gsync. Frame rates will dip below 60 frequently at that resolution and gsync will make that more tolerable. The xr341ck would be a waste if you're not going to take advantage of freesync so I would rule that out. I think you really have two options here. You can get the x34 and let gsync smooth out frame rate dips or you could get a second 980 ti and pair it with a 60hz monitor and run your games with vsync on. You're spending about the same amount of money either way.
  4. That sounds a little expensive for a 980, but I guess Australia.
  5. You need an active displayport adapter for the third display. http://www.amazon.com/Cable-DisplayPort-Supporting-Technology-Resolution/dp/B00EDT0072/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1448664791&sr=1-1&keywords=active+displayport+to+hdmi Something like that will work.
  6. Samsung just started their black Friday sales on their site. Some decent looking deals on tvs and monitors here. Monitors: 24" 1080p $120 29" Curved ultrawide 1080p $400 34" Curved ultrawide 1440p $700 28" 4k $400 32" Professional 4k $1000 Lots of 4k and Curved tvs on sale as well. Really considering the 34" ultrawide myself. http://www.samsung.com/us/shop/black-friday
  7. Well you do have M.2 so it's an option. Sata is generally a lot cheaper though so I would go with something like http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/490004-adorama-sandisk-ultra-ii-480gb-for-109-960gb-for-199-extreme-pro-480gb-for-169-960gb-for-329/.

    Might as well save some money and go with the pb278q for the second monitor. Why waste $150 that you could spend elsewhere?

    The ppi for that monitor is pretty close to the ppi of a 40" 4k monitor which a lot of people seem satisfied with. Running it at 1080p really depends on the scalar in your specific monitor but it probably wouldn't look any worse than 1080p on a 25" 1080p monitor.

  11. Why would they lie? They would have absolutely nothing to gain from that. Obviously they want to know how their card is going to compare to the competition before it comes out so it's no surprise they would do the comparison and if they lied then it just looks bad. AMD (and any company for that matter) is smart and there is no reason not to trust their benchmarks.
  12. You can easily install linux on it or simply run a full linux distro from within chrome os. After reading about crouton for chrome os I really plan on buying a pixel.
