ViewSonic XG2703-GS Gsync Monitor Review

Introduction ViewSonic is a company that is about customer focus and quality. If you’re curious about the three birds; They are Gouldian Finch Rainbow birds. These birds represent eye-catching colors and are a visual beauty. When James Chu founded ViewSonic he used these birds for the companies logo to symbolize beauty, color, and quality. ViewSonic has some very appealing monitors today and they have come a long way from when they started in 1990. There is nothing better than feeding a high-end GPU a high-end monitor. If you have a relatively new graphics card, you’re going to want a high-end monitor. With features like high refresh rates, better color quality, and stunning resolutions, the difference can be seen and felt. ViewSonic was primarily selling FreeSync monitors, which are for AMD cards. FreeSync was developed to compete with Nvidia’s Gsync technology. These technologies were developed to combat against screen tearing and the input lag that comes from Vsync. Today I will be looking at ViewSonic’s XG2703-GS, which is the companies first Gsync monitor. Let’s see what this monitor has to offer as far as features and if the technology it offers is worth your investment.



970 Pro Mid Range Guide

Guide to Best Mid-Range Gaming PC for Overclocking

Introduction Our site name implies that we deal with nothing other than overclocking. Obviously it would be impractical to only cover overclocking news and reviews, but it means that overclocking is the driving force behind almost everything we do with computers. Even though I understand that there are some good reasons, I’ve noticed that it doesn’t feel like overclocking has been the mainstay of our site recently. It’s time to change that! I’m not saying we’re going to quit covering gaming mice (You have no idea!), but I want to start steering PureOC back to what we’ve always loved about building computers. I’ve seen a lot of guides online for finding just the right components in a computer build. I’ve never found one that satisfies the overclocker in me! Rather than trying to complain about everyone else’s decisions, I figured it was time we bring our own guides for building a PC with overclocking in mind. We’re going to start by listing the best components you need for a great mid-range computer, but I plan to expand this with a high-end and budget range guide as well in the future. Each category will have one selection, but we might throw in an honorable mention if we feel like it was a particularly close contest. With mid-range, we’re trying to stay under $1000 while trying to deliver a full quality 1080p experience. I think we can do that fairly well right now. How did we come to these decisions? Obv...

VIEWSONIC VX2757-MHD 27″ FreeSync Monitor Review

Introduction How many of you feel like you always need a better monitor, but all of your cash ends up going to your computer parts first? Since I can’t see a raise of hands, I’m going to assume I’m not the only one. The reality is, the monitor is a crucial part of the computing, and especially the gaming, experience. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy to throw the extra cash into a powerful GPU and think that you’ll get the better monitor a bit later. Ideally, it would be nice to get a great gaming experience at a cost that would let you have the great GPU as well. VIEWSONIC may be coming to the rescue of gamers everywhere with some incredible prices on their lineup of FreeSync monitors. We’re going to detail the VX2757-MHD, a 27″ 1080p monitor to see how well it measures up in a pretty crowded market. While the company may be familiar to many, we’ll still take a quick look at their core statements to get an idea of the purposes behind their designs. Mission Statement To be the preferred global brand of Visual Solution products. ViewSonic is dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers, generating profitable growth through efficient operations and delivering value to our shareholders. Core Values Customer Focus We meet our customers’ expectations with superior products, customer service and industry knowledge.

Nixeus NX-VUE24 24″ FreeSync 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review

Introduction AMD FreeSync is a topic that has been buzzing around lately and has sparked some major debates over the web. While we’re not here to debate FreeSync over G-Sync and vise-versa, we are here to talk about what FreeSync can bring to the table. In recent years, we have been hearing about nVidia’s G-Sync technology and its benefits, and we have seen many rave reviews and tests with a G-Sync Monitor, but it seemed that AMD was left behind in this arena while nVidia seemed to have capitalized on the G-Sync Technology. However, with the recent technology advances from AMD’s graphics line up and the team up with VESA, we are now seeing AMD FreeSync displays and graphics cards showing up in the market, and we love to see competition. Not only does this leave room for a competitive market, but now this also gives AMD fans a hand in the technology. Although they don’t exactly perform the same way, they both have the same concept in mind. We will go over the AMD FreeSync technology in just a little bit. In the meantime… we bring you the new Nixeus 24″ FreeSync 144Hz Gaming Display review. The Nixeus brand is not as mainstream as some of the other popular brands like ASUS, BenQ or even Acer, but they are hitting the market strong with their new AMD FreeSync enabled display. We were one of the few lucky sites that were able to get our hands on an initial engineer sample of the Nixeus 24″ FreeSync 144Hz Gaming Display. This is our...
