Didn't do as much practice as I would normally, with Battlefront being released and all. Learning the track and getting a set-up was done during the practice session hence the reason I made a bad move on a GT3 and sent us off. Just used the default set-up with minor changes to aero and gears. In the race I lost my groove particularly around lap 10 or so and made a few mistakes giving me cuts and a penalty. Close racing to begin with but as usual I ended up lapping alone and trying to pass GT3's safely. While out of the grove I started to kill the tyres so pitted early and seemed to help me get back into it a bit. It was good lapping with diehard when he caught up after the disco, but that didn't last long. Nearing the end I realised I didn't put enough fuel to begin with and had to make a second stop costing plenty of time, couldn't find my notes from previous rounds I was short about 10L. Excellent racing and good fun as always, I'm headed back to work today so will miss the next one. Hopefully there's a bit more racing before Christmas...
clearer and crisper is what I noticed$300 with code PING20 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F332395171948
game code included which you could sell? https://www.144hzmonitors.com/reviews/lg-24gm79g-preview-freesync-full-hd-144hz-gaming-monitor/ ticks a few boxes and in a decent budget, anyway probably a bit better than what you could get at JB for the money

Great track and great racing with you guys, never been on that track before. I managed to get about 10min practice so didn't get much time to tune a set-up. R1 was fairly clean, a few mistakes by myself. R2 fatigue after 7 night shifts and slight set-up adjustment for the worse and couldn't really keep it together, a few guys making some gutsy moves around the outside me after I'd make a mistake on previous corner. Sorry Mael for the tap directly on the rear bumper your car did not accelerate out of the corner the way I thought it would, I slowed right down but I think another tapped you as well and put you further back, I just cruised home after that hoping you'd catch me up, good close racing and good fun
What do you notice with 144 Hz? Is it just that much more of a solid image?Fluidity, smoothness. A few years ago I had a 1080p 120hz, while upgrading to 1440p I chose 60hz because I thought it wouldn't be an issue but it it felt like a slide show in comparison, I was used to 120hz. Some people may not notice it, if you're already 60hz it won't be an issue to stay at 60hz. Going backwards though... Aaand there is a reason why vr is 90hz minimum.
For fps shooters tuning your games to run at high frames that match the high refresh rate can help, if you look at frame times in msi afterburner you'll see they are smaller, as racers you'd all agree that even a millisecond advantage is enough to win, being able to use that advantage is another thing (for me lol)
Pixel response time, the lower the more "solid" the image, higher will be more ghosting. Good TN panels are 1ms response time, good IPS panels about 4ms. Some panels of various types can be as high as 15ms or more which can also be noticed by some people.
1st world problems suckThis might be a bit better than the previous 1080p monitors you linked https://www.pccasegear.com/products/36624/aoc-agon-ag322fcx-31-5in-freesync-curved-gaming-monitor currently out of stock at pccasegear though
All 1080, Wonder if any good or notYou can certainly use a freesync monitor so don't rule them out, it'll run at a fixed rate. Initially I thought you might be after a variable refresh rate which you'd need gsync. Do a quick search of ips vs tn they both have their pros and cons.
Edit; there is also VA panels, dang you've got a hard job right now lol
If you aren't in a hurry to get something, there's more to look forward to next year https://www.144hzmonitors.com/technology/gaming-monitors-2018-roadmap-for-the-year/ but a long way off I guess. Currently the benq ticks the most boxes, reviews seem good, I just hope the TN panel viewing angles don't become an issue particularly with the two outer screens when running triple, if they all point to your viewing position then they should be ok. https://www.kitguru.net/peripherals/james-morris/benq-zowie-xl2730-gaming-monitor-review/Phil, before you pull the trigger on anything let's recap.\
Other than that right now it's 1440p 60hz, which you could find some really nice IPS thin bezel panels or 1080p high refresh rate because of the gpu connections.
Sorry for my rambling posts, I get bored with not much to do when I'm away for work lol
Actually, can't you use the 4 displayPorts on 2x gfx cards to drive 3xmonitors all from dp at higher frequencies?Yes, or get a card that has 3 displayport https://www.ple.com.au/Products/627846/Galax-GeForce-GTX1080Ti-EXOC-White-11GB-GDDR5X Phils card is 2.5 slot wide meaning he wouldn't fit a second gpu unless the motherboard could accommodate them.
No one uses 2 gfx cards anymore (except old skool soldiers like myself )I concur
Just wait a few years; the monitor manufacturers want you to buy more, so they'll provide I'm sure.Haha, I'm happy with what I have, although sometimes when I see triples a little question mark pops up...the question mark then leads me to VR, then I think about my cataract...viscous circles lol
