    Is this worth it for console gaming or is this mainly for pc ?   (9 Answers)

      PC Gaming. The superb refresh rate is lost on a console. HDMI can only transmit 60mhz, so the 144+ this monitor offers is wasted.

        Answer

        HDMI only gives you up to 60hz refresh rate. Display port is the better option. You'll get 180hz refresh rate using display port.

      What refresh rate is this monitor?   (5 Answers)

        Answer

        It can do any refresh rate from 60 hz to 180 hz, but 144hz could be considered the primary refresh rate. You have to enable refresh rates higher than 144 by "Overclocking" the monitor in the settings by using the buttons on the bezel. You will benefit most by having a G-SYNC capable NVidia card which matches the refresh rate to the frame rate resulting in fast screen updates with no tearing and without the input latency created by traditional VSYNC. It is as awesome as it sounds. You can also enable a refresh rate counter from the settings which will show you your current refresh rate, and if G-SYNC is enabled this is also your frame rate, in real time (up to the maximum refresh rate of the monitor) without having to use a software tool.

        Answer

        This is an active 3d capable display. You have to have an nvidia card that supports 3D, and you have to have additional nvidia 3d hardware

        Answer

        Hard to measure across because the monitor shaft goes through the widest part, but mine appears to be roughly 8 in deep and ~11 or 12 inches across at the widest part (the base is not square).

          Answer

          1. Not necessary, since it is just a monitor. It is preferred to get a desktop with a Nvidia video card. Since the monitor offers G-Sync that requires a Nvidia video card to use the feature. It also provides a refresh rate of 144hz, 160hz, 170hz,180hz option through a DP port connection. However, HDMI only supports 60hz. 2. Yes, if your motherboard or video card outputs has a HDMI port or DP port to operate it. Typically any computer can operate a monitor if it is connected to its ports.
