    I dissagree with that and agree with it at the same time. Gsync or the Vesa standard will run best when FPS is changing alot in general so at 144hz its probably even more necessary to keep things as smoothly as possible. That is what I have seen at least because otherwise if your FPS is not changing its pretty much not doing anything beneficial for you.

    I also like TN panels just fine if they are done right. There are very poorly done TN panels out there and some decent ones and you can notice a distinct difference. A good IPS panel is the best but they are behind still for the high refresh high resolution areas and cost a fortune.

    I do not think your going to be very happy on a GTX 770 trying to run a 120hz/144hz 2560x1440p or 1600p setup. You will need a second card to run that effectively. If you want a high resolution monitor, get a 2560x1440p 60hz monitor and you will be good or if your really wanting the extra FPS then grab a 120/144hz 1080p monitor. Personally ive used a 1080p 120hz 3D monitor (3D disabled) and in all honesty I did not think it was that amazing compared to the better resolutions at 1440p. That is just my opinion of course so you can take it as a grain of sand.

    If you want some suggestions, here is a couple:

    Asus 2560x1440p 60hz
    http://www.amazon.co_uk/dp/B009668YPM/?tag=tec053-21

    Asus 1080p 144hz.
    http://www.amazon.co_uk/dp/B008IER7BU/?tag=tec053-21

    If you really want a 120hz 1440p monitor the choices are very limited and are going to cost alot.

    I understand but just wanted to say you can run 2560x1440p games, programs, etc. on that with no issues. The extra widescreen is nice for movies and having two/three windows side by side for super productivity.

    my 2560*1600 is equal to 4 of my 15" laptops monitors, probably my favorite thing about my monitor.

    Yeah, but g-sync being beneficial for 144 Hz somehow translates to having absolutely no mid range monitors with g-sync, as if it wouldn't be beneficial for 60 Hz and someone playing games on weaker GPU at higher resolutions. Yes, they are pushing it as a premium feature at first, but for how long ... and also I expected cheaper asic at this point, not expensive fpga.

    From what I gather your saying it would be beneficial on mid range solutions like a 1920x1080p 60hz monitor correct? Well that being said most mid and high end GPU's are getting to the point stability at 60hz on a 1080p screen is a snap for them. Those GPU's normally sell aroudn the price point of 300 bucks which is about the premium you pay for a monitor with Gsync (I think 250 may have been the lowest I saw) which would beg the question as to why you didn't just invest in the higher card to begin with since you would probably be paying around 450-550 bucks for the monitor alone. Would it make a difference though, yes it would but not until the price comes down on the modules to make it more manageable at the lower price points. I see Gsyncs uses at higher resolutions and especially great at the high refresh monitors where stability is difficult which includes the low range if you can not keep the FPS stable. But I still stand by saying that you might as well just invest that money into a better video card at that point.

    Personally, I just skipped it all and went for the next step up beyond 1440p.

    @bc.be4ts If you want a Gsync monitor, I could suggest a few as well but I personally have only seen one in action so far.

    I actually didn't get 1440p or 1600p, I instead went for 2160p.

    The Asus 27inch I linked gives really good color reproduction and looks great. I have seen that one personally and like the monitor the way it plays and looks!. If Asus puts their PB branding on it, then it means its a top notch product!

    Not high end gpus, gsync would be beneficial on these screens for low power, low heat steam-boxes that can push full hd in 30-60 fps range (gtx 750 for example)

    Try that one.
    Still a hard sell unless the price of the module is dropped to around 50 bucks or 100 bucks. Again its highly doubtful you would rather spend 500+ bucks on a monitor then spend 150 on a GPU for gaming purposes at least.

    I agree, that's why I mentioned they should have by now produced cheaper module with g-sync ASIC instead of FPGA.
    FPGAs are usually used in pre-production to test, quickly re-iterate, develop and optimize chip design before it goes into mass production.
    I feel like they're doing hardware version of selling early access for games ... plus of course premium price tag.
