    That's an IPS panel you have. Overshoot is a type of motion blur. More prodominant on dark static items as you move aim around.

    This video was amazing. For the first time in the last month Ive understood the difference between the different variables when it comes to choosing monitors.
    I did feel that to design a system, Id have to consider the monitor technology quite early on but I didn't realize it would impact on my GFX choice as much.

    In the end I think I would go for a high refresh system meaning 144Hz (the video was so smooth and immersive). On top, a system which could pump out the resolution at 1440 seemed to be only minimally better than the system with full 4k.

    The only variable left in that case is monitor size. I was really thinking about a 30inch+ one. But on a 1440 resolution - is that advisable?. I am less certain about the ppi affecting apparent resolution. Perhaps there is another good video like this one?

    Thanks to the original poster. Really helped me out man.

    Addit
    To supply a 1440 resolution rig, would you recommend to go for an older 1080Ti (used) as adequate (I am mainly going to be playing BF5) or getting the newer GFX mainly as they seem to have more features especially Deep learning.
    Thanks

    1080ti is minimum I'd go for 1440p 144hz. Does it well especially if it has gsync to keep it stutter free.

    Conversely, I am running a 1060 6Gb with 1440p 144hz G-sync. The G-sync keeps it looking butter smooth although I am hovering around 60-80FPS for most titles @ medium (vs 80-100+ on high @ 1080p). I find this acceptable, I suspect largely due to g-sync.
    I figured that the monitor will still be good when it comes upgrade time, and I was sick of the poor colours on my old TN 144hz (no gsync) monitor.

    re: VA vs IPS - I was under the impression that VA was a sub-set of IPS and that all the 1440p 144hz panels were VA? Acer Predator, Asus ROG Swift, etc.

    I have conceded that in all my searching and especially with my budget that the specs I am after do not exist unless I am willing to go with Freesync, and shelling out $1200 on a 1080Ti, it feels like a waste not aiming for a G-sync..... I am holding on to my 60hz 34" 21:9 for a while longer until I upgrade my Mobo/CPU/RAM next year for more juice, then I'll come back to look at these.

    That AOC ag322qc4 looks awesome, if only it came G-Sync :upset:

    Very early next year AMD will release its Navi range of gpu's. Rumours are 1080 performance for $US250.

    Yep that's why I pulled the trigger on 1440p 144hz gsync, I can enjoy the 1440p + gsync part for now, and in 2-3 years time I will be bathing in the glorious 144hz again. Too bad about HDR lol but I figured that the monitor will last a long time, why not enjoy it now, and have the headroom for the future.

    Sorry but Team Red just doesn't cut it anymore, drivers/stability/heat/frame-time/general jankiness etc. and I have owned 4 previous AMD gens (9700 Pro, 4850, 5850, 7870). I'll gladly switch back when concrete evidence arrives, rumours don't cut it esp after Vega lol

    My point is that shortly nVidia will have to adjust their prices radically downwards - if the AMD rumours are true. Navi is good news for all gamers :)

    Samsung CHG70 it supports HDR 600

    I run this with my 8086k 5.3ghz / RTX2080ti setup and shadow of the tomb raider maxed out with SMAA X4 in HDR is a real treat on it, Gsync I feel like is not needed at high framerates.

    Yeah but even with a 2080ti @ 1440p FPS will occasionally dip and it makes them dips waaaay less annoying.

    I honestly don't notice the dips, but I guess I'm just lucky like that.

    Yeah some people it annoys more then others. It's a chunky feeling (stutter). Only way I can explain it is without gsync I couldn't handle under 100fps and with gsync I can't handle under 80fps.

    Blurbusters said gsync is like a generation gpu upgrade.

    I wish the quantum dot VA Samsung panels had gsync I'd be on it so quick. I love VA native contrast!

    You certainly don't _need_ a 1080ti to play games at 1440p. I've got the Acer 1440p, 144hz, IPS + G-sync 27", XB271HU and I use a GTX 1080, non-Ti variant.

    It's fine. really. it really is. Admittedly I haven't played BF5, I'm not really interested in it. But, I'm yet to run in to any game I can't comfortably run at 100+ fps at 1440p. I cap my fps in quake to 140 just so I'm always G-sync'd and its amazing.

    On top of that the reality is that the vast majority of games now just aren't well made from a performance stand-point so you're often capped by the game well before your hardware is out of oompf. This seems most common with games built on Unreal but isn't exclusive to that engine.

    Nows your chance :D 48-144hz freesync range on this baby, I'll see for myself how much of a difference it makes now I guess.

    Driver drops on the 15th, I'll enable it and try it when it comes, I've got a CHG70 32" the free sync range on it goes from 48 to 144 being one of the better panels for async, so I'm actually very hopeful.
