Thanks for the help and suggestions. It is much appreciated.
I am really new to high end gaming. I have always played here and there but now have really tried to optimize settings and get the most of the hardware. So I do have a question, I am not sure what to expect
When playing high graphics games, like first person shooters (In this case Rainbow Six Siege) should your FPS stay steady throughout the game or fluctuate? If its supposed to fluctuate, how wide a range? If its supposed to be steady and its not, is it the GPU, Monitor, Software/Settings etc..?
I am beyond frustrated. I tried you suggestion and rolled back to the older driver. I actually got much worse performance. I dropped down to 50FPS and had a lot of chop and tear. It was unplayable. So I went through some other older drivers with mixed results. Eventually I went back to the latest driver.
As I mentioned in my earlier post, when I first started with the PG278QR I was getting a steady 144FPS. I plugged in my 2nd monitor and then the FPS was all over the place. I unplugged it again and it is still all over the place. I can't get back to that steady 144FPS. I am wondering if thats unrealistic. Maybe it is supposed to vary.
I have tried even setting all the graphic settings to the lowest available and its still fluctuates when playing. I opened a ticket with ASUS and they told me its the monitor and to RMA it. Its brand new, less than a week old. I can still return it for a full refund. I would do that before doing an RMA on a brand new monitor.
I decided to upgrade to a GTX1080 from my GTX970. It should arrive tomorrow. If that doesn't improve the situation I will return the ROG monitor and try another brand.
Any more suggestions are helpful, they #1 question I have is still at the top, should FPS fluctuate or be steady in game play?
