What refresh rate and overdrive are you using?
tried them all, 240/280 OD 60 80 100 120, the monitor scaler just flickers black and switch to 144hz. I have a 2nd monitor (144hz VA AOC) connected to the 2nd DP on my 1070: maybe?

Packet loss and tick rate are stable. It's more a feeling, like I'm watching a stream on twitch right now (Hiko) and I know it displays only 60fps1080p and I don't feel my Ingame experience is more fluid than watching his stream on 60 fps. But definitely when I play on 144hz I feel laggy. Anyway I'm just gonna make a new build soon with a I9 or whatever. If there is no difference then I'm just plain crazy.

I have sometime the feeling that I don't always play on 240hz+, weird placebo effect. I have a Ryzen 5 2600 + GTX 1070 and 3200mhz 16gb RAM Cas 14. I have optimized my windows to get a decent system latency.. on start up LatMon shows 0.7 to 0.78 ns DPC latency, I have Win32 separation on 38 (tried 37, 40, 10f, and thats my favorite), I have shitty german cable internet connection with moderate bufferbloat on download and heavy bufferbloat on upload (~150ms) and no way to fix it coz it's on ISP side.

What I mean is that in games like Valorant: quick movement makes me loose focus on object even with G-sync (also for some reason Gsync on makes the monitor switch to 144hz in valorant, dont know why). Anyway ppl movement appears to be like 30hz, and my own camera movements aren't fluid, even the mouse feels stuck some times. So just to check mid game I went on blurbuster but it stutters, I feel it just a local problem with my computer and networking and not the monitor.

Does anyone feel sometimes that the monitor is not 240hz+ or is it just placebo and habituation?
what FPS are you getting?

are you getting 240hz fps or 280hz fps at all times?

I get in Valorant anywhere from 190 fps min when spells and explosion are banging on screen, to 400 fps before rounds start and up to 530-600fps in the Shooting practice lobby.

As I said I "optimised" my OS as I could, stripped bloatware, services etc.. I have max 15 background apps while gaming and 22 to 23 services. I run my Ryzen 5 2600 @4,0Ghz for 1,27500 LLC on medium or extreme (I dont remember but stable OC) RAM on XMP, GTX 1070 not OCed, customized power plan but idle enabled. Temps are good, no system crashes or signs of instability...

Some people experience issues when they are running two displays that have different refresh rates. Try disconnecting your secondary display and see if that fixed it.

Did you install the driver package for the VG259QM on the Asus' site?

Delete every single single resolution on CRU that is not either 240 or 280hz if it doesn't fix your issue, some games are terribly optimized for 280hz (such as R6s where you need to tweak the config and set it to Read Only to force 280hz or it reverts back', same for League of Legends) others work flawlessly such as Overwatch and Apex.

It's 100% better to stick with 280/240hz with Adaptive Sync ON and then lock at 144hz.
If you set the refresh rate to 280hz and lock at 144 you are effectively getting a 2x faster scanout compared to forcing 144hz natively.

Deleting all refresh rates under 240hz in CRU actually did the trick, Thank you very much. :)

My only complaint about my vg279qm is it takes forever to alt+tab in anything but Windows 10. I love my 8.1 install but this has been annoying me lately if anyone doesn't have this issue with 8.1 could you let me know? Also anyone else think smaller resolutions looks great when you add them with cru?

Does anyone know a fix to windows thinking that the monitor is disconnected when its turned off? My second ASUS monitor (PG278QR) never did this

Unfortunately my VG259QM stopped working today, can't turn it on. I'm going to use warranty and replace it with another model, but not ASUS this time, enough surprises.

It seems quite soon for a monitor like this one to randomly die, I hope my Asus doesn't end up dying after 1 year ( that's why I stayed away from the 27GK750F-B).

I'm curious, what monitor are you buying? Still sticking to IPS or going for TN?
