Another day another Acer X34P predator deal, a bit more expensive than amazon but shows in stock at most stores
Cheaper from Amazon AU - $971.31 Delivered
True - but look at the delivery time for Amazon
"Get it Mon, Nov. 18 - Tue, Jan. 7 with FREE delivery"
Or get it today at HN - depends on your time frame i guess
No body likes Gerry and it's cheaper elsewhere as usual
Delusional hatred for Gerry whilst the fools continue to vote Laberal who are the cause of the GST in the first place.
Brainwashed population incapable of making basic connections between things such as who is responsible for the taxes they're paying.
What's the likelihood that these screens will drop in price significantly in the next year?
Low. Removing the Gsync chips saves a bit of money but I'd just buy now and enjoy it.
Saw another deal and placed order for this monitor from Amazon then cancelled. Bought Asus PG349Q instead. Just can't resist the ROG logo lol.
ASUS version is calibrated better for colour anyway out of the box.
Is the PG349Q 120hz native or when overclocked? Where'd you get it from?
In almost all the reviews and unboxings the form factor is stated as 120Hz but I reckon it's using the same panel as X34P which means 100Hz native and with a bit of overclock to 120Hz. Said that it should be far more stable than it's predecessor PG348Q which is 60Hz navtive and a huge overclock to stay at 100Hz. You may wonder what's the big deal as they're 20Hz and 40Hz? No it's not like that. The big deal is taking the panel's designed capability as the baseline, one is overclocked for only 20% but the old model is modified for 66.7%.
So was it easy for you to overclock and get 120hz?
@CustardShot: It's by design. All you need to do is to press the button.
Did you manage to get it at a decent price? They seem to go for a fair bit more.
Not sure if it's a decent price, just good enought for me to take. Surely Asus is pricier than Acer so it's your call. I managed to place the order with $200 more budget.
how would a 1070 go on this monitor? was gonna get a new card next year at some point, but wondering if it'll manage for now
I have the 27 inch 1440p 144hz version and a 1070. My setup seems perfectly balanced. I imagine trying to run native res on this with a 1070 you would struggle to get above 60hz at high settings depending on the games you play. If you're happy to drop some settings then this would likely do until you get the new card next year.
depends if you only play cs source, r6, or lol at lowest settings than it'll be fine. Playing more modern games like high-medium setting mix, I would run into vram problems that cause noticeable stutters even with gsync on. I decided to upgrade to a 2080ti since it was the best value for long term performance at the time.
I run a similar one with a 1080 I have to run med/high with a average fps of 80-90 make sure you have 16gb too or it will struggle even more
I have the Predator X34 (100hz model of this monitor) and I used a 1070 to drive it for half a year.
Get used to the medium settings option - it'll be your best friend.
But in all seriousness, if you're willing to dial back the graphics quality to medium or so, you'll be able to push 60-120fps in most games at native resolution. In my opinion you'd be fine using this screen until you buy your new GPU - it's a magnificent thing to look at. I ended up buying another 1070 and running them in SLI which is running great for me at the moment.
Not to fussed about smashing 100 frames. 60-80 would be sweet enough. Could I run it on high and drop AA etc to achieve that?
It seemed to depend on the game for me - running something fairly new (Apex Legends, PUBG) needed me to drop back to Medium (sometimes High) to achieve around 60-70fps, but slightly older games like Dishonoured, CS:GO, Metro Redux seemed to run decently on High at around those frame rates.
Some creative playing around with the graphics settings can net you some decent results, I often increased the texture quality and dropped a lot of the other settings back - this looked pretty awesome on the X34.
thanks for the responses everyone. Much appreciated
Picked this up at HN on Wednesday, they price matched Amazon at $971.
Need advise pls, planning to build a pc for my gf during the Black Friday sales and was going to get this exact monitor. Do u guys think there will be better deals then or should I get it now with this or the Amazon deal? Problem is if I buy this now I will need to put it in storage till I get the PC end of November as I already have my own monitors.
Personally I think it's pretty good deal and worth buying now and putting into storage for later use.
You could save $10 if you wait
