  1. Do not worry, I already know 970 isnt king on 1440p, deciding on 980ti or 970 G1 SLI already If the only major differences are 144p and the panel types, then I will get the pb278q because there is no need for a 144p monitor for me. Thank you for the info and how much of a major upgrade would it be for the ROG swift, is it only the G-sync and how much better is that from v-sync
  2. So I built my RIG back in January of 2013 and since then only upgraded fan or two and my GPU to a 970 G1. Now I am thinking it is time to go 27" 1440p with my 21" as a side monitor. When i got my rig I was sure that I would buy a Asus PB278Q because it seemed perfect at the time(ROG Swift launched a month or two after this). Now I am torn, I would not get the ROG Swift because that's too expensive but I saw that Newegg is having a sale on the BenQ XL2730Z and wondered how much better it is than the 278q for the $150 more. Now as far as I know, the BenQ has Freesync and the 278q does not as well as the BenQ having 1ms and the Asus having 5ms. The biggest difference I am thinking is the panel it seems, since one is TN and one is PLS, all i know about panels is that TN is alittle worse for colors. Let me know which is better for the price I am seeing, and also let me know if I am missing a monitor that is better than these two, thanks in advance!
  3. I am going to put the pb278Q into my friends build but for me I am on a budget and I will get a Qnix and buy a new stand myself, I have talked to a lot of people and they say they have great experiences with their korean monitors. Also sorry, first glance at the sight just didn't seem to trustworthy but after reading a good portion and seeing the rest it does seem like an indepth review
  4. That's a bold statement to say because that is the first REAL bad thing I've hear about this monitor. Also I kinda don't trust the website you showed because it seems unprofessional. I'd like more than just one person saying it's bad to completely change my opinion
  5. Damn you're right about the RAM might having some issues, I got it because it had a combo discount, their the exact same card so I really didn't think anything of it.
  6. I have a gigabyte windforce 770 and I personally think it's the best cooler on the market, I plan on getting a 970 G1 all the way with their improvements they made on the windforce. I am building a build for my friend so I gave him 2 MSI 970's because he had a more red/black type build, so it's mostly personal preference but it isn't like their THAT different from eachother.
  7. before when I was building my first rig, I was mainly looking at the 280x and was and still am a strong supporter for the AMD. Anyway I had gotten alittle more cash so I went for the 770, which is better if you can afford it. But I'd rather a 970 than a 290 anyday
  8. you got a G1, what resolution/monitor are you running it with? I am really stuck, thinking if I should get a QNIX qx2710 for christmas(not knowing for sure if the 770 will run well) and get a 970 G1 down the line, or get a 970 G1 now and a Qnix down the line
  9. I figured it wouldn't but I am just going to have to stalk newegg and other places on sunday night into cyber monday
  10. I am going to be getting a G1 970 but I am trying to figure out if it will go on sale for maybe black friday or cyber monday
  11. thanks guys I am probably going to pick up the Qnix after I get a 90 for christmas
  12. I had in the 105 but I saw linus' $2000 holiday build guide and figured the nepton would be the best

  15. the original plan was to get a G1 970 and then a pb278q down the line... Also thinking that I can sell me 770 and than get a Qnix
