Hey Guys,

I think it's time for me to think about buying a new monitor...I've done some reading up on G-Sync and Freesync, even though G-Sync would be the only thing that could be implemented as I have always used NVIDIA cards. The way I've understood G-Sync is that it only really helps in situations where you suffer from large variations in FPS. What do you guys think, is G-Sync a must have feature or will I be fine with a monitor with a high refresh rate? If you have any specific suggestions or find that your setup works very well please post them below!

Thnx in advance

I have a G-Sync monitor, and I would never go back.

Also, a high refresh rate monitor is a significantly better gaming experience. 60Hz looks like a slide show after using 144Hz for about 1 month. I've had it for a year now, never going back.

To answer your question, it depends on the graphics settings you expect to play on, and the resolution you expect to play on. 1440p at 144Hz is probably not doable with the 780Ti without dips at ultra in BF4. With BF1 around the corner, not a chance. G-Sync will help with this.

since you already have notAMDvidia get the g-sync or at minimum get a 144hz monitor and make your own g-stink :P
how to g-stink -
set your monitor refresh rate to match your max. steady game fps - with my gtx760 and mid to low bf4 settings this equals to 120Hz/fps (make sure your monitor supports it)
make a game config (C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4) and set these 2 as following-
GameTime.MaxVariableFps 120.000000
PerfOverlay.DrawFps 1
your game should run at a steady 120 fps and no houmous! i mean dips. to speed things up you can try running your game in 32 bit and dx10, although with your gtx780 that won't be necessary.
if you drive slower than 120 mph the bus will explode and sandra bullock will die. read, your monitor will go out of sync and will default to 60Hz, where if you were using a real thing you would have a 40-144 range or something. with zero tearing and zero input lag, so it's a lot better.

this works particularly well with the above setup: -
no scaling - perform scaling on display (not GPU!) - tick overide the scaling mode set by games and programs.
and bob's your uncle!

...all of what you just said makes so much beautiful sense to me, it reads like the most beautiful poem...!120fps and no homous! I mean dips"...i lost my shit at that XD

thanks for the input bud.

@FullThrottle

The build you posted above on Part picker features a free-sync monitor, is this the one you actively use or is it a seconday non -gaming monitor?

Shit, that's the wrong monitor. ASUS and their naming conventions... I have a PG278Q, not a MG278Q. It is the 144Hz ROG Swift. I have updated the link. Sorry about the confusion.

I haven't added my 2 secondary monitors to the link. I should do that at some point.

FYI, there is also a 165Hz ROG Swift called PG279Q.

I run 2 28" 4k monitors, one for the game and one for other stuff like ts. 4k runs at 30fps on my 1070 amazingly well, and I haven't had any issue being competitive in game. I do have to downsize to 2k though because battlefield crashes on nextmap in 4k for some reason

I had a 780Ti on ultra at Bf4 with 144 hz and had no issues with FPS drops/Stutter. I now have a GTX970 and still the same. BTW you don't need ULTRA graphics to enjoy games

What is your resolution?
What is your resolution scale?
What is your anti-aliasing set to?

All those things will have a significant impact on FPS. I had a hard time sticking to 144Hz flat with my GTX 980 with a 6 core Intel at 1440p 100% resolution scale 0x AA. This is why I said that. Everything on Ultra otherwise.

No gym at your college?
Texas_Flexas 12:53 PM
Absolutly, too bad thats a drive. But worth it
Angry_Cuban13 12:36 PM
Long enough to go to the gym though.

Having a 2 hour break between classes kinda blows. Too short to go home, too long to stay entertained.
Angry_Cuban13 6:49 AM
Also, the PVP aspect of it is really fun. It is comparable to Quake and Unreal Tournament.

If we keep growing we are planning on adding fireteam channels under the Destiny 2 channel so it isn't so crazy in the main channel.
Angry_Cuban13 6:48 AM
I mean, I personally enjoy it. We have a pretty active crew (2-4) people who log in every day that can help you out if you have any questions.
