Digital to analog video converters not working for GDM-FW900

So the new gen of video cards will no longer support analog out since they've removing DVI entirely (and axed analog DVI on the GTX 1080). Because of this, I can't use the new video cards on my Sony GDM-FW900 CRT. I've tried three different digital to analog converters, one of them being HDMI to VGA...

Re: Is G-sync really worth it?

I got to see G-Sync a few days ago when I got the Asus PG258Q, which taught me a lot of about G-Sync. I wrote a review of my experience with the PG258Q in the General forum, so feel free to check it out if you want to know more: http://forums.blurbusters.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3287 Regarding G-Sync...

Re: My experience with the ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q

Regarding the color and contrast, I used the tftcentral settings as one of the first things I did. And while those settings did help the out of the box contrast a ton (everything is just white with no greys out of the box), the color and contrast was still extremely bad. I ended up using my own sett...

Re: C24FG70, Pixel Inversion?

I saw a similar behavior with the PG258Q, where there were faint vertical scan lines on still images that would suddenly be super accentuated when there was motion around them. I found it extremely distracting and annoying to deal with. Maybe it was a different problem than this, but I did see distr...

Re: Acer XB252Q, Acer XB272 240hz G-sync | ULMB @200hz?

If you still have this monitor, how do you find the XB252Q today after almost a month of usage?

I was looking to give it a try, but I'm scared of horrible color and contrast on the new 240hz TN panels after my recent experience with the PG258Q 240hz having awful color/contrast.

My experience with the ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q

I just registered with this site so I could give a review of the PG258Q, in case anyone was interested in what I discovered. I've been using a BENQ XL2420T since June 2012, and I absolutely love this monitor. I decided to get a new monitor because I was depressed that the GTX 1080 cards and beyond w...
