    Re: iiyama ProLite B2783QSU

    The problem with this is that it's a mid-range item which will most likely be paired with mid range GPUs, and mid range GPUs (970 but more likely a 770/AMD counterpart) are the ones that *really* need that lower end starting point for *sync tech.

    This would be amazing as a 1080p screen - paired with a 960, or 760/770, games could be really fun with the 75FPS not all that troubling, and more importantly the 48fps starting point not an issue. But to really get the most out of this without having to sacrifice AA settings, you need a high end GPU

    Is lower AA such a sacrifice on a 27" 2560x1440 screen? I know on my 24" 1080p the difference between AA and no AA was minimal. and that has a larger pixel pitch. I'd've thought AA is one of the less impactful IQ reductions on a monitor like this...

    Any chance of 'hacking' the freesync range? I've heard this can be done with quite a few other monitors?

    That's a fair point I don't know why I picked that as MY point - I don't even use AA myself, on 1080p ha.
