Just finished my build, with a lot of help from the good people here at Tom's Hardware.
I have a Samsung monitor that is 22" and 3D ready. It also will run at 120Hz. I can't get it to run on the 120Hz setting in Windows 7 64bit. It did just fine in Windows XP 32bit. I was told that it may be the drivers for the monitor, but it did not come with a driver when bought new. I read some older post on this site that indicated that it may be related to the nvidia drivers. I'm running Asus Rampage III Formula chip set 58 mobo, 2 GTX470 video cards SLI and Intel i7 930 cpu. I can set the res. to 1680X1050X60Hz with no problems, but I really want to run this monitor to it's full potential. Can anyone suggest what to do?
To do 60Hz per eye you need to refresh at 120Hz total.
That's what I was implying, but the monitors drivers might be set for 60Hz at all times, as is the standard and only kick into 120Hz when it's given the instruction to do so by whatever 3D rendering hardware/software is instructing it to do so.
Just because it can refresh at 120Hz doesn't mean it has a setting to do so when not rendering something in 3D is my point.
I believe although I could be wrong, that you will need dual-link DVI output. Single-link DVI has enough bandwidth for 1680x1050@60 Hz, but doubling the refresh rate also requires double the bandwidth or you could use a HDMI v1.3 connection as this has enough bandwidth and you will need the cable that "should" have come with the TV or something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/5m-HDMI-DVI-Cable-Premium/dp/B0...
When I built the new computer I bought a new cable that was longer. It was not high-rate / As in DMI cable or HDMI cable. Went back to the cable that came with my Samsung monitor and now it works. I'm a bone head lol
