I just want it, disappointed to see such a limited release initially. With no announcements on gsync monitors from partners I am getting worried that Q1 next year is looking unlikely for anything but the Asus monitor with a module, and that module is currently looking like its in short supply.

Agreed

When are the Kits available for purchase? I would love to win One of these Nvidia Gsync boards because I am very sensitive to stutter and tearing and this could potentially be a game changer. Thanks for the opportunity...

Gsync is not going to be something big as nvida has the power to submit this to vesa and get gsync incorporated into future dp/hdmi/dvi standards but sadly they are just using it as a lock in to their product stack.

Hi PC Perspective, and thank you for the chance to enter this contest! I am receiving the ASUS VG248QE for Christmas and it's currently still boxed up, so I hope it's okay that I took a picture of the box and the monitor still disassembled in the box.

Right now I'm using a 560 Ti that probably isn't going to cut it with my monitor running at 144Hz. G-Sync will be perfect for me. I have already planned on buying the upgrade kit (which is why I chose this monitor last month) to do some reviews. I am personally afflicted with mouse lag when v-sync is enabled and see screen tearing all the time. It drives me nuts, and I really hope this tech is the solution to that. Even if I had a 780 Ti, I would still invest in this tech just to see if it will fix my screen tearing issues. Either way, I can't wait to review this thing up and down. Thanks again, PC Perspective!

That submission is just fine! 

Good luck!

It requires you to have a 650TI Boost or higher...

Indeed it does! Totally forgot about that, haha. If I'm lucky enough to win I'll be upgrading my card earlier than expected.

I want G Sync for no tearing in BF4!

I really desire the g-sync technology because I want the edge in games, including reducing screen latency and not showing duplicate frames. I usually play with v-sync off so there is no lag, but I guess I get tearing when that occurs. Looking forward to installing this kit.

WOW this is probably the most awesome thing I've been able to enter all year long :) keeping fingers crossed i get picked! Ill finally get to experience smooth game play! WHOOP WHOOP! THANK YOU PC PERSPECTIVE!

FWIW, I will only be able to test it until January 2nd. :( Then, I'm gone for 11 months. But, if you ship it soon, I can totes test the heck out of it! :D I have 200+ hours in BF4 already, hehe. :D

Anyways, I specifically got the VG248QE because of Lightboost. Ever since I got Lightboost enabled, I've been addicted to motion clarity, so I have a pretty good eye for it now. I will be excited to see if G-SYNC is worth the upgrade over Lightboost AND I will be MORE than happy to test the new Lightboost strobing mode included with the G-SYNC module. :D

Currently, I run at lower settings to get the 100FPS needed to match my 100Hz refresh rate.

I also have a pretty solid handle on V-SYNC, refresh rates, stutter, input lag, etc.: I had to learn it all to figure out why Lightboost was so awesome! :D

I also feel V-SYNC input lag pretty easily; I mainly play BF4 and TF2. My aim improved many-fold turning it off (I turned it on to reduce tearing, but both of the games I play have FPS caps which *mostly* eliminate tearing).

I also understand that reviewers need to understand their biases and background coming into a review, so as to not color a product. However, I also get that these things cost real money and thus should be careful with our recommendations. :)

Cool. Um, super-excited!!! :D

G-Sync would be such an amazing upgrade to an already great monitor. I'm always looking for ways to get my games looking the best that they can, and G-Sync delivers just what I want.

I've just bought my first Nvidia card, and if G-Sync is as awesome as I think it would be, I will be incredibly glad I made the switch.

December 16, 2013 | 03:32 PM - Posted by Jonathan (not verified)

I want to try out G-Sync because it's the latest technology for PC gaming and I love to be at the forefront of consumer technology.

December 16, 2013 | 05:25 PM - Posted by Lewis Crabtree (not verified)

I want to try G-Sync because i have heard that it is the next best thing and a lot of my friends are interested in it but we would like to see and use it before making a purchase.

Thank you PC perspective,

for the chance to win this awesome upgrade. It is quite simple why I would love to have g-sync. If I have a Nvidia graphics card, and the best gaming monitor, why not top it off with Nvidia's G-sync technology? I want to be able to have the best immersion experience I can have, and this would put the cream into the crop. I also would love to show it off to a lot of friends, and encourage them to get one as well. Nvidia keeps on making amazing innovations, and I truly believe this is next-gen material.

Regardless if I win or not, I will be getting this upgrade at some point, because this is the next step to the perfect gaming experience.

Thanks again!

Regards, Kaleb Lee.

I have really been looking forward to getting my hands on this tech to the point I went out and bought a 770 a month ago. BF4 cranked all the way up gives a bit of stuttering and tearing and I would be amazed to see if this can really clear that and bioshock infitite up. The chance to get my hands on this a bit early is just too good to pass up.

Really looking forward to these modules being available for purchase! Bought this monitor largely because G-Sync was going to be available for it first :D

Hello PC Perspective!
(sorry for my English :) )
As a gamer (half of my life i spent on gaming :P and ye i like Half Life :) ) I'm looking for G-Sync to test it and see is it really milestone in smooth gaming (casual or hardcore ).
So far i used CRT monitor, than 60HZ LCD, since October i'm owner of cool Asus VG248QE+GTX 780 and i enjoy 120Hz in Battlefield 4 and other games but i feel its not enough and i think G-Sync can change my life for better :)
Cheers and Merry Christmas :)

I want to see what everyone is raving about. It is a shame how Nvidia is handling the release currently and do not want to buy my monitor all over again to test the experience. I want G-Sync because as a tech geek it is natural to want to test the latest and greatest. Currently running 2d lightboost and it would be interesting to see the differences in gameplay experiences.

I bought a new gpu just for gsync, my old sli setup ran games nicely :), I CANNOT WAIT to get gsync, been counting the days :) I would buy this if I COULD but im not a fan of the $500 prebuilts that came out today

also my bday is comming up dec24 so it be a great present

First time poster on PC Perspective, your giveaway encouraged me to register an account. I have all the required hardware (VG248QE and GTX 660 Ti) and have been waiting to get my hands on the DIY module kit to improve my singleplayer and multiplayer gameplay experience.

Ever since the days of counterstrike 1.6, v-sync has been generally disabled on my PC (adaptive v-sync is more tolerable). Thank nVidia for finally creating an alternative that doesn't unnecessarily tax my GPU, plus it removes screen tearing and stuttering to boot.

Also I'd like to thank PC Perspective at the chance of getting the module that much sooner. I will keep you guys up-to-date if selected in the giveaway.
Thanks and Happy Holidays, Nathan C

Honestly I have no reason other than i love checking out all the new tech i can get my hands on. I'm a fiend trying to get my fix! lol really though i have a gtx 780 and the asus vg248qe monitor and i would love to see what all the fuss is about. Good luck to everyone.

P.S. I've been subscribed on your YouTube channel for awhile now. my YouTube name is HardwareJunky Joe. Swing by the channel sometime.

I want to test this new product because i was disappointed in the VG248QE. I got the VG248QE over the BenQ because it was over $100.00 cheaper and the specs were virtually the same. I have always loved ASUS products so i was caught being a fan-boy.

I want to test and provide feedback on this product; because I want to see first hand how it compares to BenQ. I think it would be a really exciting opportunity to tell you the PROS and (if there are any) CONS it has compared to its competitor in the computer monitor category.

Definitely interested in Gsync. Competitive FPS gamer (used to play Battlefield until BF4, currently playing CS:GO). Always striving to get the smoothest performance out of my gaming setup. Currently running the Asus VG248QE monitor at 120Hz with lightboost but I'm extremely curious as to what Gsync can do.

Would love to get the Gsync upgrade kit for free and it will not be wasted.

P.S. I see a lot of BF4 players here. I played BF4 competitively for the first month but I couldn't stand it due to the current state of the game. It breaks my heart being a Battlefield series fan.

I've been eagerly anticipating the G-Sync consumer release since it was announced by NVidia, and I bought my VG248QE specifically for the G-Sync upgrade path with the aftermarket kit. I'm bummed that the kits are only sold bundled with a marked-up "install service" at the moment, which is why this giveaway is even more awesome!

Plus, John Carmack seems pretty excited about the technology, so I'm sure it's going to be sweet!

No more tearing, lag and stutters.
Looking forward to Nvidia G-Sync

Looking forward for a chance to win this just because i went from a dual card set-up to a single card for less heat issues I've been having. However now i've taken a noticeable hit to FPS performance. I play a lot of mmorpgs and with all the players on the screen its easy to dip to the low 30s and see a lot of stutters and tearing. I'm hoping to alleviate some of those issue with g-sync so I went out and bought this monitor to eventually upgrade. This would be the perfect chance for me to try it out Thanks for the opportunity.

Thank you for this contest and allowing pc users to experience G-Sync for themselves. It's one of those things that need to be seen in person to fully experience what the technology has to offer.
I want G-Sync for the same reasons as others. Honestly, it would be awesome if everybody who entered won and got to experience it.
