    Hello.

    Ive just bought this beautiful monitor, but i cant get it to work with my MSI 290x Lightning to run with 144 Hz ...JUST 120Hz

    Is there any solutions for this?

    Best regards!

    "Note: G-SYNC features require an NVIDIA GeForce GTX650Ti BOOST GPU or higher."

    Does your video card meet spec?

    This monitor is reviewed at Tom's Hardware site. There are a number of comments, some of them by member "Craig N". He seems to know a lot about this monitor and if I am reading his posts correctly, you can't have 144hz refresh without G-Sync enabled.

    Bottom line - I have no experience with the monitor and was only searching for a definite answer to your question. As I can't really find anything 100% definite, I'll stop posting my guesses. BTW, that is one incredibly spec'd monitor. I hope you enjoy it!
