    Question on monitor ghosting

    Well I kinda feel like I notice it in some games but not in others, which doesn't really make sense. Especially since I should be noticing it more in darker games (like Doom) than lighter games (like CS:GO) but it's exactly the other way around. I don't notice the stuff from the UFO test in games though. I just can't really figure out what acceptable performance is, specifically in the ufo test.

    Question on monitor ghosting

    Hi all, I have recently bought a new monitor, which has a 144Hz 1440p VA panel. Now I have found that this monitor has some ghosting using the testufo ghosting test. At 60Hz it is not really noticeable unless I compare it directly to my other monitor which has zero ghosting. At 1440p I do see a bit of a dark trail in the top one and a light trail in the bottom one. Now my problem is that I don't really know how to judge this. When I look at reference photo's I often see the worst monitors which have 2 complete ufo's, and in the best cases there is no trail whatsoever. Can anyone point me to some images or explanation on how to judge the ghosting on this monitor? I can't really say that I see ghosting while playing games, but I do notice some stuff and I am not sure whether this is just placebo since I have seen the ufo test or whether there is actually any ghosting. Thanks

    Gtx 1060 6 gb for 80 pounds

    If it is a scam then it's very easy to fake that though. Basically if you have 80 to blow and won't miss it that much if it turns out to be fake then go for it. If losing 80 pounds is actually a problem I wouldn't recommend it.

    Gtx 1060 6 gb for 80 pounds

    Well a 1060 for 80 quid sounds a bit suspicious to me. I personally wouldn't chance it if he is to send it to you instead of you picking it up and testing it before paying him.

    Which GPU for 1080P gaming?

    The 1060 is on par with the 980, not the 970. In some specific titles the 1060 roughly equals the 780 ti but in most the 1060 is better than the 780 ti, so it's definitely better than the 780. Still if op wants to game at 120Hz he should probably go for something a little beefier than a 1060, also depending on the titles he wants to play.

    G-sync + 240hz monitor?

    You can set vertical sync to 'fast' in the Nvidia control panel. This is kinda like v-sync but with much less input lag. (For more info Google Fast sync, even though it's not called that in the Nvidia control panel)

    what is better high resolution or higher refresh rates?

    Fully depends on what type of games you play.

    Question about HDMI and DisplayPort

    Haha what, that's actually a bit sad. Just don't include anything if you really need to cheap out on the cable.

    Question about HDMI and DisplayPort

    @Metallus97, @mariushm thanks. I think I'll just buy one soon, just knowing that the subsampling is there irks me now. I find it very strange that Samsung choose to include an HDMI cable in stead of a DP, they're not that much more expensive are they?

    Question about HDMI and DisplayPort

    Any advice on how to find out if I do?
  11. Hi all, I have recently bought a new monitor (Samsung LC27JG50QQU) which is a 1440p, 144Hz screen. Now I noticed on the product page that it supports HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2. I saw on the Wikipedia page that HDMI 1.4 supports 1440p at 144Hz, but only with 4:2:0 subsampling. Does this mean the screen would potentially look better if I were to connect it through DisplayPort? I have now hooked it up with the HDMI cable that came in the box, but I could buy a DP cable if this would be better for whatever reason. Cheers, Martijn

    24inch (Used) vs 22inch (New)

    Hmm yeah then it's a question of faith. Personally I am not a big fan of buying stuff second hand from people who aren't close. If I were you I would probably wait until the Black Friday sales and christmas sales are here, you might find something nice for the same price then.

    Question about v-sync

    Ah okay, so the fast setting in vertical sync is called FastSync. Yes this clears things up and confirms my theory. Basically the gpu is adding 200+ frames per second to the buffer and then only 144 are actually pushed to the monitor. Thanks! Yeah so apparently this isn't the same as regular v-sync, it's just a bit unclear since it is located under the name vertical sync in the control panel.

    Question about v-sync

    Hi all, I have recently purchased a 1440p/144Hz screen (Samsung LC27JG50) and I am fiddling with my 1060 6gb a bit to get the most out of it. I manage to get decent framerates and in some games like CS:GO I can use the 144Hz. I was tinkering with the v-sync a bit, and decided to put the v-sync setting in the control panel to 'fast'. MSI Afterburner still shows a framerate of 200+ though. My theory is that the since the GPU still creates the frames but they are just not pushed to the monitor, MSI Afterburner shows framerates over 144Hz. Is this correct or is the setting not working/am I not understanding this properly? Thanks

    $500 gaming build?

    Not sure a 2200G makes a whole lot of sense when you are going to add a GPU anyway. Also if you are going for an AMD system I would invest a bit more into faster memory, since Ryzen really likes fast RAM.
