Re: G-SYNC Upgrade Board Giveaway - FIVE boards! [complete]

But, but... 4K pennies iz the future! :lol: No really, this is so generous of you. It's perfect since I recently ordered an EVGA GTX 780 Classified and discovered that Newegg listed its length as 10.5" when it's really 11". My CM Storm Scout only fits video cards up to 10.6" in length, so now I'm ha...

Re: Upgrading from Planar SA2311W to ASUS VG248QE? (re: G-SY

Once you understand the differences between LightBoost and G-Sync, I think it comes down to your budget. The VG248QE is currently $266.99 on Newegg and the DIY G-Sync Upgrade Kit for this monitor will be sold soon for $199 (to US and Canadian residents). New G-Sync-included monitors have been announ...

Re: Gaming Monitor Advice

Oh man, that sucks regarding the prices you have to pay. $448 for a plain VG248QE compared to $280 at Newegg. :shock: Have you considered buying your components online? I did some research and this approach makes sense from reading this forum thread. Since you're getting a GTX 780, do you have a PSU...

Re: Learning about G-SYNC?

Can you release any details on the Nvidia Gsync OSD vs the stock VG248QE OSD? Here is some info from bakageta at overclock.net: Now, obviously since we scrap the entire pcb for the ASUS monitor, we lose everything associated with it. That means all of the OSD, including things like the crosshair ov...

Re: G-SYNC Upgrade Board Giveaway - FIVE boards!

Congrats, guys! There are certainly many worthy submissions and I can only imagine how tough it would be to pick between them. Good luck to the rest of us. I'm eager to find out what the consolation prizes might be. It's quite generous when other sites just hand out the 5 kits and be done with it. :...

Re: G-SYNC Upgrade Board Giveaway - FIVE boards!

Quick question: do the G-SYNC kits come with a display port cable? (Either in this giveaway, or if I buy a kit when they are available) I ask this because 1. I know G-SYNC requires display port. 2. Currently I'm using 2DVI connectors and 1 HDMI for my set up of 3 monitors, and want to switch the HD...

Re: G-SYNC Upgrade Board Giveaway - FIVE boards!

Hello, my name's Danny and I'm currently typing from my first custom-made rig that I built a little over a year ago. It seemed like a pretty daunting task building a PC from the ground up, but I did my research (which I always advocate, whether it's for hardware, software, gaming, or life-related is...
