So if you are comfortable with a Philips screwdriver then soon you can purchase the G-Sync module itself and mod an ASUS VG248QE monitor at home. A complete installation instruction manual will be available to view online when the module becomes available, giving you a good idea of the skill level required for the DIY solution; assuming proficiency with modding, the technical gurus believe installation should take approximately 30 minutes.
Perhaps I missed this but was there any pricing on the G-Sync module mod? My son has the VG248QE.

Damn. Too expensive. I guess the exclusivity's to blame. And/or NV just upped their greedy mode.

I was very interested - that was, until I saw the price.

I'm getting a little annoyed at Nvidia, honestly, as if they can, they'll charge a huge premium for as long as possible, so G-Sync will never be cheap unless AMD come out with their own similar tech.

I also think Mantle could be an awesome change for PC Gaming - but, I bet Nvidia will never use it - even though they could and should. I seriously hope they don't come out with their own.

Anyway, for that price, you'd have to be barking mad.

I agree with AvengerUK....youd truly off to be off your rocker to purchase one of these panels anywhere close to 600$...you can buy a gorgeous 1440p panel for half that price....

1440p 60-120hz > 1080p Gsync lol

Great for those who own a 60Hz monitor or experience screen tearing.

But what if you don't fit into the above categories - Gsync is of little to no benefit...hence why imo it's overhyped and way too expensive.

Wow, that is waaaaay more expensive than I thought it would be.

Hope modules come out to mod existing 120hz Asus monitors.

Aye. Make it cheaper and bundle it with something else than TN garbage and I would be excited. For now I'll keep my 1080p 75Hz IPS.

Dissapointing review. I was hoping that you tested a game that can put many more fps, above 60. The panel is 144hz, I would have loved you to test Lef4Dead2, BF3, Call of Duty at 144hz/fps!!!!
