THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!
Hey guys, selling my current monitor setup as I've decided to switch to the Ultrawide monitor life Both of these monitors have been amazing since I've bought them and are practically brand new (no bad pixels or anything). My gaming monitor is an AOC 24" G2460PG 1080p 144hz G-SYNC monitor, absolutely amazing for all of the games I play and ran great paired with my GTX 970. My second monitor is an LG 24" 24EN33 1080p 60hz monitor, pretty standard in terms of screens but acts as a great secondary monitor while gaming. The monitor mount is pretty standard as well, does its job great mounting to the back of my desk saving tons of space. I'll include the original stands for both monitors if you want. Even if you aren't interested, I'd highly advise in a similar setup, having two monitors as a student makes gaming, movie watching, essay writing, digital drawing, etc WAY easier with an additional screen. Looking for $450 with shipping included in that ($400 for local pickup, I live in Southern IL). Includes the two monitors, dual monitor stand, all necessary cables, and original monitor stands if needed. Let me know if you have any questions!

I've been wanting to see what 144hz is all about. Which monitor is better? They both have good reviews but I see a lot more people recommend the Asus one but most don't state a reason other than "It is 3D and G-Sync capable." Also, what about BenQ monitors? Acer GN246HL Asus VG248QE
I'm not sure if I am posting this in the wrong forum or maybe this is a combination of two forum topics (eGPUs and displays) but here it goes: Basically I wanted a external monitor to run on my 15'' mid 2014 macbook pro (no integrated graphics, only iris pro 5200) because I am in the works of making an eGPU for it. I decided to go with the Benq XL2411Z because it seemed like a well rounded monitor and it had a 144hz refresh rate. Now that I've started using it, I have been unsuccessful in achieving anything higher than 60hz. I've been told that if you are running OSX that it is impossible because that is a limit set by apple; however, I have seen people say that they are able to get the 144hz on Windows. So far I have had no such success. I had a HDMI cable connected, then read that in some cases HDMI will not be able to achieve 144hz. So I tried a DVI cable via the mini display-port to DVI adapter, but that did not solve the problem either. A lot of people on other forums have mentioned that they are able to fix this by simply opening their Nvidia control center; however, because I don't have dedicated graphics, all I have is the 'intel integrated control center' which isn't very helpful. The graphics card I am planning on attaching is the evga gtx 960 so I will have to download the drivers for that later (once I get all my parts) but I was wondering if I am missing something here? tl;dr: 1) Do I need a DVI cable to get 144hz or can I achieve 144hz through HDMI? 2) Is it possible to get 144hz without having nivida control center? Thanks!
