Alienware 2518HF Best Settings for CSGO

Hello

I have an alienware 2518hF with 240hz and i have the Problem that in fast motions the screen looks a littlebit blurry and also the edges of the images looks not really clear and if i move it flicks a littlebit. Sorry really hard to explain :D

Also on white places ingame, it looks blurry when i move it fast.

My settings are:

-dark stabilisation(3, max)
-the contrast on the monitor is set at 30% and Brightness 98% and in the Nvidia control panel i have digital vibrance on 89%
very fast response time(if it goes i wanna stay at very fast because i gives me the best ingame feeling)
-Ingame resolution 1680x1050 streched and quality all low
-240Hz and i have about 300-450 fps ingame (the frame limiter on cs go is really bad and it gives input lag so fps_max 0 is the best)
-I use Display Port cabel under 2m from Lindy Chromo Cabel (or should i use the default HDMI cabel ? )

My Grapics Card is an Asus GTX 980 Strix

Are there any settings for helping me ?

I figured out when i play cs go and i look ingame on the monitor info it says 1980x1080 but the real resolution ingame is 1680x1050 so it uses gpu scaling even if i set display scaling in the nvidia control panel.

To tweak this i can set a custom resolution to my monitor wit CRU of 1680x1050 and 240hz and now ingame the monitor shows the right resolution and also uses display scaling. You can feel it really big differenz that it is much more snappiere and also less input lag.
But the point is that the images are sharper on the display scaling CRU mode but also it feels like it is harder for my eyes to play.

Are you getting ghosting/corona artifacts like the ones you see at: LCD Motion Artifacts 101? Or scaling blur? There are many kind of blurring artifacts, and causes of them. To allow me to help better, let me know.

-- Are you trying to create a windowboxed 1680x1050 in the middle of 1920x1080
-- Are you wanting to stretch 1680x1050 to 1920x1080?

I think its more of an Ghosting.

I can also see it really good by just scrolling down black text with white background. You can see that the text it would discribe double it a littlebit when i move the page up and down.

CS:GO is 1680x1050 Streched. Also when i add the 1680x1050 Custom resolution with 239.760 Hz, ingame is full streched and also the nvidia settings with no scaling/fullscreen/aspect ratio is no longer working because it fullscreens the image.



But lets get not into that because the problem also exist on default settings, and also on normal browser sides, Tex scrolling...

One other thing that has nothing to do with the little problem, is that i have found out that if i set the monitor to 30-33% contrast.
It feels like it hast the best and lowest input lag.

Also do you have any tips to get the lowest input lag on this monitor as possible and also which settings do you recomend in CRU for best response/lowest input lag and high motion/fps game?

Which settings do you have for fps games?
