Just installed my xfx 6950....bios flash was 100% success. I am officially rocking on a 6970
just ran 3dmark11 I scored 4844....don't know if thats good or not. I did like the temps though....my card never burped past 34C. Now I can add that 20% OC to it ....all in all very happy with the card.
I have been thinking about that...I am thinking maybe 22 or 24"......will 5ms or 2ms response time matter at that size? my 19" is 5ms response and everything has been fine with that for years. I just don't want any blurring.
The claims of 2ms and 5ms mean nothing as this becomes marketing crap. There was a good article a while back that tested manufacturer's claims of these response times. They found the "2ms" monitors actually performed at 8ms and the "5ms" performed at 12ms or more.
Note: These are GTG (gray to gray) response times. It's actually cheat since a truer measurement of pixel response time would be BTB (black to black), but it's "faster" if manufacturers used gray instead of black.
Oh 24 all the way, very easy to pick up a good 24 at a reasonable price. Personally don't see the point in going from 19 to 22 when you can get a 24 for nearly the same. I have a Samsung Syncmaster 24, only 60 mhz but 1920 by 1200. Very happy with it. A good monitor will put the extra gfx grunt to excellent use.
I agree with Wickens, go for 24". Most of the 23" - 24" monitors carry a 1920x1080 resolution, but I personally prefer 1920x1200 24" monitors.
They're becoming increasingly harder to find. If you can't find a 24" 19x12 monitor you like, look at the slightly larger ones at 25.5" (like my current ASUS VW266H). It's only a 1.5" larger and you're not going to notice any degradation in image/video quality.
