    So does that mean at some point they will start doing that as standard? In the video they were talking about how AMD might be able to modify drivers to cope with adding additional frames to compensate in a similar way to how the G-Sync modules repeat frames to double the frame rate and then increase the refresh rate of the monitor to work at that higher speed.

    Re: Gaming PC Rig

    Thanks for all of the advice, I'm going to go for this monitor >> http://www.scan.co.uk/products/27-ac...ms-speakers-us and just keep sending it back till its right before handing the system over.

    One last question, what should I be looking for in DDR4 RAM? I know Scan endorse corsair but theirs a lot of other (cheaper) manufactures about any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Sacred

    Nice, if I didn't already have a 27" G-Sync monitor already then that is the one I'd probably get for myself.
