So I've found a deal for a NEC LCD3090WQXi monitor for $225 CAD: https://www.cnet.com/products/nec-multisync-lcd3090wqxi-lcd-monitor-30-series/

 

Specs:

 - 2560x1600 resolution (16:10)

Good deal or not? Would you get one if you found it for $225 CAD (~$175 USD)? Thanks in advance!

I've never heard of multisync... Knowing myself I might end up buying it, but I would stay skeptical since I've also never heard of the brand.

NEC is a pretty well known brand.

Maybe it's more canadian. Nevertheless, if its reputable than go ahead, but before you buy, where are you getting the display from?

not really a good deal but not a bad one, it's something if you really wanted WQXGA, but not really an instant sell (you can get a 1440p IPS one for 250$ on Amazon)

the colour seems to be good however, but it'll probably be off these numbers by quite a bit considering it's old enough to be vista certified, and it has CCFL backlighting, might be dim too.

 

another annoying thing is to use these WQXGA monitors, you need a DVI-D DL cable and GPU, or a expensive active adapter if you don't have a DVI-D DL GPU

probably kijiji, since I found one there too (same city)

138 is a good number.

They're the ones that usually make LCDs and sell it to monitor manufacturers I think, I think I've heard of them somewhere while looking for laptop LCDs

Just a way of saying you can change the refresh rate to a few different settings.

 

can be useful since if your .1% lows are say 94 FPS and you have a 100Hz monitor then you just drop the refresh rate down to avoid stuttering.

I have a GTX 970 (with a DVI-I DL). What cable/adapter will I need in order to use this monitor with my specific video card.

970 can do 2560x1600 @ 60hz  with a DL cable

Image result for dvi dl

as long as it looks like that, doesn't matter if it has analog pins or not, it's a LCD so it's digital

Okay, thanks! That's a DVI-D DL to DVI-D DL, right? And you're sure it'll work with my DVI-I DL equipped GTX 970?

I is for digital + analog 

D is for digital only (no analog)

 

I'm not entirely sure, just quickly been googling honestly, but this says it'll do dual link DVI, meaning up to 2560x1600 60hz, and the monitor seems to only have DVI whatever inputs
