  1. i see 2070 supers sold on hardwareswap for 375-400 usd
  2. i noticed that the benchmarks were ran with the smart memory feature.. that might affect numbers if you went intel or older AMD CPU
  3. actually depends on the monitor. if it's one that has freesync premium (pro) and a wide range, it should support LFC which can enable adaptive sync below the minimum by doubling the refresh rate. but i'd still stay above the minimum, the LFC is best when you get stutters
  4. personally would like a taller ultrawide, while the normal 21:9 ultrawides are very good it's not quite enough vertical space
  5. 3440x1440 benchmarks if anyone's interested: https://www.pcgameshardware.de/Geforce-RTX-3080-Grafikkarte-276730/Tests/Test-Review-Founders-Edition-1357408/4/ it's in german but you can filter out the results. for me tho, seems very good at this resolution, tho i am curious about 3840x1600 benchmarks
  6. gsync has a dedicated proprietary module inside the monitor, gsync compatible doesn't have it and is usually freesync, but is tested and verified by NVIDIA. the former has a range of 1hz to the max refresh rate, variable overdrive, sometimes ULMB, etc.
  7. you can use either nvidia control panel or RTSS frame limiter. set limiter to 3-4 frames below refresh rate of monitor.
  8. i had both, i found the lg to be far superior, apart from contrast ratio and price. experienced some eye strain on the AOC as well
  9. Works out of the box for me. in fact it's already enabled when i plugged it in. 48-144hz, but seems LFC is supported so you could say 1-144hz. its a great panel too, very good colors, very fast, some IPS glow it can do 160hz as well but is 8-bit color but if you want cheaper i heard of the Acer nitro XV340CK
  10. is the tearing towards the bottom of screen ?
  11. well, another post about the 3000 series no surprise there tho this is more towards Nvidia warranty and RMA experience. honestly want to try out the FE cards but i heard some mixed stories about Nvidia's customer service, anyone can vouch ?
  12. honestly found curved panels to be quite nice for ultrawide. recently went back to a flat ultrawide and it was really strange, but you get used to it. downside is that you can't set it to portrait mode
  13. 1080p ultrawide is very small in my experience, not enough pixel density. it is easier to drive as it's still less pixels than 1440p
  14. some reason the pc wouldn't turn on today, kinda panicked and checked the psu, ram, motherboard. everything seems good.

     

     

    so went to clear CMOS battery and fired up, phew. also found out how awful the CMOS location is

  15. So I learned that Gsync compatible monitors are capable of LFC below the minimum adaptive refresh range. i confirmed this when a game dropped below 48fps, the minimum effective VRR range of the panel. the OSD shows the effective hertz of the monitor double of the fps. And i dont see any kind of tearing which is great. however i wonder if the smoothness is any different with an actual gsync monitor, because seems all of them have working adaptive sync across the entire refresh range. obviously sub 60fps gaming is never gonna be smooth, but if there is any appreciable difference. al
