That monitor looks much better in more real lighting then all the promo shots made it look. Do want.
Its a shame I'm running a 780Ti. This is pretty much what I want from a monitor (ignoring the TN bit) and I'd grab it if my card was from the red side.

oooh, I'll keep my eyes pinned. I'm after a new monitor as my current one is nothing special. a 780Ti is a bit overkill for a 1080p monitor :/

Awesome Guv, censored

Really do like the idea behind adaptively syncing GPU - Monitor, Monitor - GPU, it's great stuff, but with all that extra computational work there is a slight by-product which you experienced at high fps which is the ghosting or incorrect grey-to-grey feedback from the monitors native 1ms refresh, which gets a pounding as the GPU and game go too fast. I know NVIDIA had problems with this in the early days on the G-Sync development, still it's early days with this tech and will only get much much better in time.
