Re: The Official *Asus VG259QM* Owners Thread (+ Secret Overdrive)

When loading a game like Call of Duty Modern Warfare, do other users get black screens or even lower max refresh rates in settings? I almost always have to restart the game multiple times or power on and off the monitor to get 280hz to work/show up in COD settings. Sometimes the game is locked at 6...

Asus VG259QM : I can't get 280hz in COD Modern Warfare. I also get black screens and often have to restart the game.

I can get 280hz to work well in Overwatch, but when it comes to COD Modern Warfare, I often get black screens or super bad frames (60hz, even though in-game settings say 280hz). I often have to turn the monitor on and off again to sometimes get it to work. The best solution I've found so far is turn...

Re: The Official *Asus VG259QM* Owners Thread (+ Secret Overdrive)

Due to having every single discussion about this monitor scattered around many different and often unrelated threads I decided to create this thread with the sole purpose of sharing settings and tips for the VG259QM. - OD120 I'll start by sharing a secret overdrive . As a premise I want to specify ...

Which of these settings has the lowest lag in Overwatch?

In Overwatch, this computer can push almost constant 300 fps, but it'll average to about 275 fps during intense team fights. The Acer Nitro XF252Q 240hz 0.3ms monitor has Freesync, and it seems to work well with adaptive sync/G-Sync. With that said, which of these settings would give me the least am...

Thank you for the response and the links. I already ordered the Acer monitor, but I can return it. What would be a good method to test this monitor? Is there anything you'd like to know about it?

MSI 240hz 0.5ms GSync or Acer 0.3ms Freesync?

Hello, This is my first post here. I heard this is the go to site for anything monitor related. I'm just going to dive into my questions, which I bolded: Should I get the $349 240hz 0.5ms MSI Oculux nxg252r with G-Sync or the $349 240hz 0.3ms Acer Nitro XF252Q with Freesync? TFT Central reviewed the...
