    Hoping the Freesync range on this is at least 40 - 144, less would be even better for some people :)

    It would be nice if OCUK/Asus and other retailers and manufacturers could add this information as standard like resolution and contrast ratios.

    Quite a high response time compared to the TN panels. How does that compare to the 1ms models in real world usage?

    Would one of these work with my SLI 780s or is it an AMD only thing? I'm not really up to date on this whole Freesync malarkey.

    It'll work (as a high refresh, high resolution display) but you won't currently be able to use freesync.
