    G-Sync only makes sense when the game's FPS drop below your monitor's refresh rate.
    For shooter games it's more important to have a GFX card that produces stable 120 or 144 FPS, and in that case G-Sync becomes useless.
    From what I can tell a GTX 760 is good enough to get 144fps @ 1920x1080 (with reduced gfx settings)

    For older games like QuakeLive G-Sync is actually a handicap. They process mouse/keyboard input between rendering frames, so with 250 fps your input is more accurate (although most of the frame images get discarded). G-Sync caps the fps to 120/144 in that case, so I disabled it on my PC and instead changed my desktop refresh rate to 144Hz.

    Right, that makes sense. I don't care about playing with high resolutions, AA or detail. I just want as high a frame rate as possible, with a matching monitor rate.

    Yup, I've done a bit more reading now, and there's plenty about that on the blurbusters forum. I assume it is because older games are single-threaded.

    I'll just have to wait for a true 240Hz panel instead. Or 500Hz, to match my keyboard & mouse. :naughty:

  • So I finally purchased this monitor (Asus VG248). It's amazing! Man, I don't know how I managed for so long on a 60hz! I thought I got some bad FPS drops in Ganesha but now I don't see/feel that at all! Toxikk definately shines on these higher hz monitors.

    Just have a question for those of you who own the Asus VG248QE -- How did you guys go about adjusting your colors? I downloaded an ICC profile (from https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/asus-vg248qe/) and it seems to have done the trick, but I still find the white to be too bright. I didn't mind the default profile to be honest except that it also was way too bright.

    Yeah, great isn't it. Once you have a rock-solid 144fps@144Hz you never want to go back, even if it means losing effects and detail. Particularly for games that need fast reactions, like driving and shooters. There's still some visible tearing if you do rapid 180-degree turn though.

    I've never used ICC profiles myself, but here's what I changed from the default:

    • Mode -> GAME
    • Color...Bright -> 0
    • Color...Contrast -> 30
    • Color...Saturation -> 30
    • Image...Sharpness -> 40
    • Image...TraceFree -> 0 (sharpness of movement trail)
    A lot of it is subjective though. Everyone's eyesight is subtly different and ambient lighting conditions have a significant effect.

  • Nice.. thanks for the reply. I'll try it out and see how I like it and where I can tweak etc. It is very subjective.

  • Hmm, I wouldn't buy a new monitor without G-Sync anymore. Too bad the Asus ROG SWIFT PG278Q is of such crap quality... :(

  • Asus VX239 IPS , after various tests my choice was to take an IPS for better colors and viewing angle, but i noticed response times are slower than TN panel
