NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology keeps the output from a Kepler-based GPU in sync with a monitor regardless of framerates and irrespective of whether or not V-Sync is enabled; the result is a butter-smooth GPU-controlled display that essentially obviates fixed vertical refresh rates. (You can read a detailed primer on G-SYNC here.)

NVIDIA G-SYNC DIY mod kit

There are some G-SYNC-enabled displays coming, including at least one from ASUS (the 27-inch ROG SWIFT PG278Q at 2560x1440), but for a limited time, eager modders can upgrade an ASUS VG248QE display already with a DIY G-SYNC kit from NVIDIA.



There’s a handy installation video and an accompanying instructional PDF, and NVIDIA says that you can perform the mod in roughly 30 minutes. The kit costs $199, with a $9.50 standard shipping charge. If you’re the sort that salivates at exposing the guts of your monitor and trying out some G-SYNC goodness, you’re welcome and have a fun weekend.

From what I remember reading, Freesync is only going to work on laptops.

It looks to me like it's updateable; so, as patches come out, the problems should be fixed.

i think it is, ill have to check with him and see how its done....however this is cheaper than buying a monitor with it built in already, i think the 27 inch ASUS was around 800~

One thing worth noting is that it removes your HDMI and DVI connections. So, if you were using your monitor for any of your gaming consoles on the side, you're S.O.L. without a Displayport to HDMI converter.

And Kelly, 800 what? There are several countries that read these.
