        Answer

        You have to use the DisplayPort cable to have 144htz at 1440p. You also have to use the DisplayPort cable to use G-Sync.

            Answer

            None. Generally companies will have different packaging for retail models vs online store models (like a color box with fact tags rather than a bland cardboard). This difference gets a new model number, which is usually the same with an R at the end.

              Answer

              Yes - this is a 8bcp, for gaming is decent, not the best, unfortunately I bought it for 699 and a few days later went to 499 (not sure if the best buy promo is still there but if it is, go for it)

                  Yeah, it's more of a setting in the menu than a button, but yeah you can do that.
