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.

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 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.

December 16, 2013 | 08:04 PM - Posted by dreamss (not verified)

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.

December 16, 2013 | 10:41 PM - Posted by James Trew (not verified)

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!

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.

PCPer rocks. I love this site and the PC Perspective podcast. I also enjoy listening to the TWiCH podcast with Ryan and the guys. I appreciate all of the hard work and excellent tech information, cheers!

I have been looking forward to G-sync since I heard about it on the podcasts. I immediately hopped on the site and checked out the pcper article. I had just emailed NVIDIA last week and I'm excited to get some more information and possibly get my hands on one.

I'm a gamer who loves technology. I play all different genres of games so I would love to see how G-sync improves my gaming experience and allows me to take full advantage of my investments. I wanted this monitor for the fast response time and refresh rate but to be honest I was considering upgrading to 2560x1440. With the news of G-synch I've put all that on hold as I have very high hopes for this technology and the changes it may lead to in the future. Plus who doesn't love a free upgrade?

Thanks a lot for the opportunity!

I wanted a G-Sync display ever since I saw Nvidia's initial demo. Variable refresh rates seem like a fantastic way to rectify the tearing or input lag that results from working with a static refresh rate panel.

When they announced the basic details of the upgrade kit, the already glowing reviews of the VG248QE put it at the top of my purchase list. Upon setting it up, just running games at >60hz refresh rates was a night and day difference. I hope to see the same type of difference when it comes to G-Sync.

Hey everyone at PCPer, thanks for holding this giveaway! I've been following progress on G-Sync since it's been announced and I'd be honoured/delighted to try and help out with my feedback. I've been playing PC games for years now, and after a while of playing games on my trusty CRT(1920x1440@85hz), using a typical LCD was hard because of motion blur and a general feeling of slugishness. The only LCDs I really thought could replace CRTs for gaming were monitors with the 2D lightboost hack or some other form of strobing backlight. Since replacing the CRT with my VG248QE I've been very pleased with the overall smoothness while using V-sync or trying to ignore tearing without V-sync.

I think I'd be a good candidate for the G-Sync upgrade because I've got quite a versatile system that would help me test in a few ways. My rig has 770s in SLI, which may or may not be useful, depending on whether or not multi-card systems are an area that needs feedback. I also have a mult-monitor setup, although I don't know if surround is supposed to work with g-sync or not, I've heard mixed answers from different sources. I'd like to say I have a keen eye for things like motion clarity and overall visual smoothness, but I can't really compare myself to others. What I can say though is that I am interested in finding the best, smoothest gaming experience possible. I'm pretty interested in the development of g-sync and seeing it succeed in whatever form it eventually takes. Motion clarity generally seems to take a back seat to things like resolution and colour accuracy, hopefully that will change soon and people will see what they're missing.

Thanks for this contest! It's an awesome way to get some G-Sync units out into the wild. Good stuff!

Why do I want one? Because I want the finest, smoothest image possible when gaming. For the longest time, I didn't fully appreciate what a high refresh rate could do. When I finally got my hands on a VG248QE, the refresh rate blew me away.... Then I found out about G-Sync, and that things could get even smoother?

Need it, want it! Need it gotta have it! In my face!

What if I were willing to buy one of those monitors if I won? I want to try this out but don't have the monitor to support it. If I knew I could use the kit, I would buy one just to try it. =(

December 17, 2013 | 05:53 PM - Posted by James Dansereau (not verified)

I want G-sync technology since it just looks amazing and I really hope that it's actually as smooth as Nvidia claims it to be. I watched when it was first unveiled and I've been looking forward to it since then.

Why do I want a G-Sync upgrade kit? My PC gaming rigs have always been in a computer version of the goldilocks zone. I don't go for the cheapest parts, but I also don't shell out thousands of dollars for extreme overclocked this and triple Titan that. Despite this I still like to play the newest games, even graphically intense ones, at as high settings as my hardware will allow and this usually results in varied framerates on unlocked games, so I frequently see stuttering and occasionally tearing.

G-Sync technology sounds like a godsend for ensuring a smooth gameplay experience when my hardware starts getting taxed. So I want it, and I'm willing to perform the upgrade myself since I already have the monitor.

December 17, 2013 | 08:42 PM - Posted by David Yakin (not verified)

I'm very excited for Nvidia G-Sync. I play a lot of fps games such as BF4 and CoD. The stuttering can be really bad when my fps drops below 60 fps. This module upgrade kit will certainly give me the best graphical experience EVER! I'm also curious if G-Sync can improve my 3D experience. That will be the first thing i will test out with my Nvidia 3D Vision 2.

As PC gamer I never have enough graphic quality even owning a high-end graphics card, I decided to switch from AMD to Nvidia initially for PhysX and Nvidia 3D Vision but now with G-sync I think my gamer life is gonna be perfect :D

The G-Sync technology is something i want to get my hands on and utilize it for all its worth. I have a refined appreciation for graphics and have always wanted to have the latest. I have recently upgraded my gaming rig to the latest i7 and SLI 780s along with the ASUS monitor as stated in this article. The 144hz is amazing but I require absolutely no input lag or screen tearing in my gaming. I am a twitch gamer; meaning I play fast paced games such as CSGO and starcraft. In my leagues, we demand the highest in technological advances in our equipment. I have recently acquired a 1440p monitor and was blown away by how beautiful it was. After getting the ASUS, however, I will not go back to anything that isn't 1ms and 144hz. This monitor is my flagship when it comes to gaming and would like to see it used to its fullest when g-sync arrives.

I am also a product reviewer and twitch game streamer as well. Having new technology to bring to my viewers and fellow gamers is something I strive to perform in my videos and live stream. I understand many people do not have the funds to easily purchase a high quality gaming rig so I help people obtain the quality parts they need without getting hardware they may not need. The g-sync will help me determine if it is something that should be mandatory for every gamer on any budget.

Thanks to PC Perspective and NVidia for allowing the PC gaming community to try out this new and awesome technology.

It is my belief that the G-sync technology will revolutionize PC gaming.

I was happy to learn that my ASUS VG248QE TN panel would be the first to support this new technology. Being an Nvidia customer, I recently built a new computer (including GTX 770s in SLI) for the Fall game lineup. Battlefield 4 was my most anticipated game.

Since October I have been using this monitor to play BF3 and now BF4. It is a great monitor and performs very well with the system setup that I have.

I have also tried to run the BlurBuster "Instructions for Zero Motion Blur on LightBoost LCD."

Utilizing the ToastyX Strobelight App it has been exciting to see the advantages that these 120hz+ LCD Monitors offer.

I see the G-sync technology as the next big thing for my setup. I am ever desiring the smoothest and most responsive experience I can get.

If selected, I look forward to testing this module and providing whatever feedback I can to assist PC Perspective and Nvidia. I feel I am a compotent hardware "Do It Youselfer" and exactly the customer that NVidia is targeting with this tech.

Thanks for the oppurtunity to enter this contest and I hope you have a happy holiday season. This would definitely make my Christmas.

Thanks PC Perspective for this chance to get a leg up on the newest tech! I've been watching G-Sync for a while now (at least as long as they've announced it) and it sounds like something I'd really love to experience for myself. Input lag drives my up the wall but the tearing I've been able to live with. If I could go without either, I'd love it to death. I've been a long time fan of Nvidia and I'd love to try this out so I can convert my family and friends (most of whom are AMD fans). Thanks again guys for running this contest. I hope I win, but if I don't I look forward to seeing how people feel about it from this.

I have a VG278H.


I'd assume it would be compatible..?

December 18, 2013 | 06:46 AM - Posted by dean9316

It is because of the PC Per podcast and website is why I made the switch from gaming on the xbox 360 and the PS3 to gaming on PC. I am currently running a i7 2600K, 8 gigs of ram, 2 SSD’s, GTX 680, and a Asus VG248QE. And what a difference compared to console gaming. I worked for my dad at his tv repair shop for around 20 years, so doing this G Sync upgrade would not be a problem. And as good as gaming is on this GTX 680 and Asus VG248QE, I believe the G Sync upgrade would be the icing on the cake. Love the podcast and website, keep up the good work. Thanks.

I would like the G-Sync to upgrade my VG248QE because I JUST got my 780ti SuperClocked and I really want to further enhance my gaming experience. Best Monitor: Check, Best Single-GPU: Check.

All I need now is the G-Sync to complete my setup! Also, I won't just to a simple feedback, but on top of that, I will do a video review an upload it to YouTube.

December 18, 2013 | 08:04 PM - Posted by Jonathan (not verified)

I'd love to win one of these upgrade kits.
First of all, I have the monitor, as shown in the image I submitted along with the form, as well as a GTX 770 in my rig. So I'm good to go for G-SYNC. I'm an electrical engineering student, so the upgrade will be a breeze.

I notice stutter and frame tearing A LOT, when I play games that have annoying jumpy frame rates. Even in games with relatively smooth frame rates there is some issue. I'm very curious to see how G-SYNC looks in different games with different frame rates.

I play a lot of different games, ranging from RPGS, FPS, MMOs, racers, and pretty much anything else that comes out that takes my fancy.

I can definitely provide feedback of my experience with G-SYNC.

Hello to everyone at PC Perspective,

I would really like the G-sync DIY kit because I'm always interested in new tech and I also hate games not running totally smooth.. it drives me nuts!! It's the reason I saved up and bought a gtx 780 and went for 144hz monitor. I actually saw g-sync in person and was instantly sold. I asked the nvidia rep a bunch of questions, and I was excited to hear about the DIY kit for the monitor I was using.

I'm not too crazy about the price point they are aiming at, but it is an awesome piece of hardware that I would love to own.

Just wanted to say goodluck to everyone and happy holidays! :)

Man this is a great contest!

I want Gsync because the tearing in Assassin's Creed IV drives me crazy, but I can never make up my mind if I want to put up with the input lag or the tearing. With Gsync I won't have to make such a compromise.

I want the g-sync upgrade kit cause I am tired of stuttering and screen tearing in video games. I bought my Asus VG248QE just to upgrade it with the G-sync DIY kit so, I hope I get the chance to :). Thanks for the opportunity guys...Love the site and your Youtube channel keep up the good work.

Been chomping at the bit ever since I read about this. As a FPS'er I always have vsync off but hate the tearing. I would love to see how this improves on things.

Would love to have the opportunity to try this technology with my monitor. I cannot wait to experience the improvement in fluidity.

December 19, 2013 | 11:53 PM - Posted by Danny Young Lim (not verified)

I want G-Sync DIY Module Kit because I have ASUS VG248QE and I ran benchmark most of the time to determine how much frames I get when I run these particular settings and every time I ran benchmark, it shows this Screen Tearing, Stutter, and Input Lag when I benchmark with H.264 Encoder NVIDIA Shadowplay. Even if I enable Vertical Sync or Adaptive Vertical Sync, it introduces slight input lag and stutters when my framerate drops below based on monitor's refresh rate. So, that's why it gets me disgruntled and I definitely need G-Sync to eliminate these 3 common cancers: Screen Tearing, Stutter, and Input Latency.

I am looking forward to this brand new technology and this just reminds me back in the old days where CRT and GPU and operate independently no matter how much frames GPU renders, it accepts as many frames as possible; irregardless of what game application I'm playing on.

Hi! First time I heard of G-Sync I was blown away.
And once I heard that the first monitor supporting G-Sync would be the VG248QE I was very pleased!
I bought this monitor back in July and I love it so much! 24", 1080P, DisplayPort, 144HZ!! It's amazing, but I want to push it to the extrem with the G-Sync Upgrade kit.
I just want to experience games without v-sync and have no Tearing and such, it ruins the gameplay...
I built my own pc so I think I will be able to install G-Sync.
My GTX 770 will kick performance but more FPS = more tearing, so G-Sync will make it super-smooth!

My youtube name is either bootchoo96 or BoutchooQc (I renamed the first one to the second one this summer)

Best regards, Olivier.

I am really looking forward to testing G-Sync since tearing seems like it has always been the overlooked detail the past few years. Sure you can lock in V-Sync but then you get the frame rate penalties if you drop below 60fps and with the old double buffering that resynced to 30fps. I remember the days of tweaking with D3D Override and forcing triple buffering in D3D to reduce the hit to 2/3 instead of 1/2 when falling below 60.

Generally I have resigned to setting V-sync differently per app where I use a mix of full V-Sync, Adaptive V-Sync, and no Vsync for shooters like BF4. I am really looking forward to testing out G-Sync on my Asus, but I wish they also had a BenQ version since I prefer using a flicker free back light.

Thanks for the contest and love the podcast and website! I'm super psyched for G-Sync! I hope everyone can eventually get this tech, from the sounds of it, it's quite amazing. I play a lot of competitive shooters from quake to bf to cod and everything in between... really any game! I'm not picky :P I would love G-Sync when playing not only shooters but huge expansive games that have amazing visuals ie. skyrim, far cry 3, etc. thanks again for the opportunity!

btw... just occurred to me I forgot to put the domain on my email address in the submission I really hope it's not an issue :/ it's

and happy holidays to the whole crew!

I want GSYNC as it seems like a logical answer for a problem that should have been solved long ago, a 'pure feed' to the monitor limited only by the drawing speed of the gpu seems like the future that should have always been. It definitely feels like the next evolutionary step in gaming; solving the problems of tearing and stuttering, and something that will be a very common thing in the future. We will look back and think, why did I have to mess with limiting my game's graphics (or even my monitor's 144hz) speed) to avoid these issues just to make my game run as it should? I'm very excited to experience.

just heard this on the podcast and after feeling like I won the lottery after just buying this monitor in late November and upgrading video to an Asus direct cut 2 770. I will be submitting when I get home and cross my fingers and toes that I get drawn for this, I have been a hardware geek for the last 20 years and am so happy to see tech moving forward.

Would this kit work work with a VG278HE? Just picked myself up that monitor as a shiny new x-mas gift :)

Horizontal tearing and stutter are the bane of my existence, which is the sole reason I bought the VG248QE. I am drawn to the G-sync module like a moth to a 40 trillion watt lamp. Tearing is that guy who asks for your opinion and always does the opposite of whatever you say. Tearing is pouring that bowl of cereal only to find you have no milk. Tearing is waiting at the DMV for two hours only to be told you're missing a piece of mail with your current address.

It's the source of a hatred that burns with the fire of a thousand dying suns, and only a G-Sync Module can quench it. Help me PC Perspective. You are my only hope.

Woah Almost missed the part where you have to comment on the thread for a chance to win! I spend most of my free time gaming. The idea of a perfectly smooth experience on battlefield 4 going from 60-120 fps without chop sounds game changing to me. I cant wait to experience it.

I want gsync to compare the technology to lightboost.

I was introduced to light boost at 120hz from the website, and I can easily say it's so far the best monitor quality I've seen.

I'd be willing to do a tutorial for the installation and then put up screenshots/benchmarks/opinion on the technology if I were given a module to update my monitor.
