i thought multi-touch LCD screens and aftermarket USB touchscreen membranes were overly expensive. But if not - ok cool.
(i might pick one up for myself Smile)

Would a single 42" monitor work for the main display or do you need the multis for realism? I saw a 720P "600hz" plasma TV for $300.00 the other day. I was kind of wondering about putting it on my desktop Smile

Plasma still has burn-in problems that would be bad with PC use.

There are ways to avoid/minimize burn-in - and for 300 bucks, who cares?

Have you thought about subbing in a plasma screen? I keep drooling over the whole 600 HZ thing.

Those 600 Hz plasma screens don't work like you are thinking.

They have a 600 Hz refresh on the screen but the extra frames are interpolated from the input source, so at best you can send 60 FPS to it. And it induces a permanent additional frame worth of input lag because the screen needs to know what the next frame is before it can guess all the interpolated frames in between from the last frame.

Input lag due to signal processing is a problem I'm fully cognizant of.. It is supposed to be eliminated by gaming and PC modes - which my current HDTV doesn't have enabled for high-def inputs for some reason (probably because it 8+ years old & was one of the first 1080p 60" TV's - the HDMI input is only partially compliant, etc) - Rocksmith is a bitch to play without setting huge delays, and online console gaming is no fun, for obvious reasons.

I've been interested in the potential of higher framerate displays for a while, and this is the first I've heard of what you're saying. Basically, you just contradicted a lot of what I've read, because you're saying that even with PC or Gaming modes enabled, the TV's still process the signal and interpolate frames. My understanding was that the 600 hz plasmas were true 600hz displays, and didn't use trickery like "120hz" and "240hz" LCD/LED displays do. Can you point me in the right direction? I'd hate to spend a lot of money on a new display that didn't do what I wanted it to do.

AFAIK no current digital interface supports the amount of data a true 600Hz refresh would require. 1080p600/24b --> 27.8 Gbit/s. HDMI 1.4a max is 8.16 Gbit/s, DP 1.2 max is 17.28 Gbit/s.

Gren, that's a different story, but I want to know if my card supports a 180hz refresh at, say, 720p, can I get that? a 40-inch class plasma would be a sweet display if so - and a $500.00 white elephant if not.

In theory. But I doubt it's implemented by anyone, all the specs I've seen so far list 75Hz as the max refresh rate for any resolution. Sad 120Hz may work, haven't checked the details tho.

In the gaming/zero input lag modes they just fall back to 60 Hz only, disabling the interpolation entirely.

HDMI won't allow a frame rate higher than 60 (now 75) Hz at ANY resolution.
