Getting ready for a G75 and Hello World!

Level 8
Greetings all,

I'm on the verge of purchasing a ASUS G75VX-BHI7N09 from Xotic PC. I've been lurking on the forums for several weeks, checking out the difficulties various folks are having with this platform, as well as various vendors. I've been on NBR doing the same and noticed a few issues that I was hoping those of you that already own could either confirm or deny:

  • The G75's with the matte display seem to appear grainy and there is also a problem with horizontal gray lines appearing in black areas when playing games.
  • The subwoofer has some sort of driver related issue.
  • Repasting the CPU/GPU seems to be hit and miss.

I've elected to try and work around a few of these issues by having XPC install a higher quality display and repaste the CPU/GPU.

Now, I know the G750 is here and looks to be pretty awesome. However, both the GTX700s and the Haswell processors don't look to deliver a comparable gain in performance relative to the amount I'd be spending should I elect to go for the cutting edge. If I'm missing something then I'd love to hear what you all have to say. I'm decidedly on the fence about my next rig but the G75VX looks to be pretty killer from a performance and price perspective. To be sure, I've considered MSI/Sager as well but there are an awful bunch of horror stories floating about multi month long RMA struggles and shoddy customer service. Plus, the G75 just looks...well...pretty damn awesome (much better than the Clevo form factor).

Well, thanks in advance and hello again!

Yes Very nice package you put together!!
I also ordered the IC Diamond TC for my VGA upgrade, its good stuff.
Yes Asus ROG's are the best support out there, This forum has made things so easy to learn from
and the people here are the best and super smart and are good at what they know.
Enjoy your new toy glad you went with only the best!
