    PG279 Stuck at 120hz

    Hey everybody,

    I just received my new monitor (PG279). Great so far. Not dead pixels, no dirt under panel and no BLB.

    I have a problem regarding the refresh rate: I can't set it above 120hz at the moment. I updated all drivers that came on the disc and looked for newer ones online.

    At the moment I'm using a 770. Before you ask, yes I am using the correct cables.

    Thanks for your support.

    Hey,

    "165Hz G-SYNC mode is ONLY supported on GTX 960 and above, GTX 700 series only support upto 120Hz!!".

    Thanks Wildapiospi to point that out to people, that didnt know about it. Even though I'm planning to get this monitor, i still have to upgrade my GPU to a GTX 900 Series card if I want to take above 120hz.

    But for now I guess you could say I prolly wouldnt even go beyond 120 frames on a single GTX 780 aneway

    This is NOT accurate, i was playing Starwars Battlefront with my 780ti on the PG279Q only 2 days ago and running well over 120Hz, in fact at some points during my game the display was reporting at 165Hz! and i weren't just using the FPS counter on the display i also haveMSI afterburner/ATi tool outputting the refresh rate. Both confirmed this.

    Then i decided to install DisplayFusion to sort out my multiple monitor configs, and ever since doing so, i have locked my OS (Win7) to 120Hz. Its added some value into the registry which i cannot reverse and i was hoping anyone might know how?

    Thanks

    I have 2x780's. One Asus and one MSI.

    I have found that if I set the MONITOR OC to 144hz I can select 144hz in the Nvidia control panel.

    But if I select 165hz in the monitor settings, I can only select 120hz in the Nvidia control panel.

    I have read that this is possible because I have an Asus GC.

    Still seems a bit of an odd quirk.

    Have also read that G-Sync should only work for me if I select 120hz, however I am struggling to tell if its on or now.

    Is there anyway to tell if G-Sync is working when I select 144hz ?
