In Topic: Got a new monitor, confused about stuff...

Seemed to have worked. Only issue left is when I have the response time set to fast, I see alot of white ghosting type things when I move in a game. If I set it to normal there is almost no ghosting. Seems like it defeats the point of response time. 

Only real fix is to set the MHZ to 120 and response time to normal. Then there is no ghosting. (sigh)

Ah ok, never knew that. I'd say maybe turn off the option to turn the screen off after 1 hour but I'm not sure if I will get a burnt image in the screen after awhile. Though if I recall that doesn't happen with LEDs right?

Well today I went to exchange the cord due to it having a defect (random black flashes) But I didn't make it the store in time. When I got back I plugged the DP cortd back in, turned the screen on but it went into power saver mode. It wouldn't show my desktop. I unplugged the monitor and plugged it back in. Still nothing. Tried different DP slots and even my HDMI slots and nothing would show on screen aside from the power saved thing. I had to force shut down my computer using the power button then turn it back on. Then the screen worked. 

Any ideas why this would do that? Is it because I unplugged the DP cord while the screen was off (not literally unplugged though)? Or was it just some fluke? BTW I do have the deep sleep mode turned off on the screen. Only other thing I can think of is the I have the "Turn off after one hour" mode turned on under power settings. Could that be what screwed it up?

Yeah after trying the HDMI cord the G-Sync wasn't available and the refresh rate would only go up to 60hz. I'm back with the display port now.  

Thanks for the links. I checked out the links but the one download for the ICC profile I couldn't find a link to it on that page. 

Are there any guides on messing with the colors of a monitor that uses DPs? I see white for example in this typing box but I also feel like I am seeing a bit of red almost or maybe brown, more so if I'm, not facing the exact center of the screen. I did try the calibration thing on the color management and for example the gamma part of it I can't get the screen to look like the middle option it tells you.

Thanks for all the answers! Helped alot! So when it comes to response time then I want it to Normal, not Faster then? Or if I understand right your saying mine is already 1ms? Ah ok about the HDMI thing. I think I have a 2.0 cord. Though the guy tried telling me to not use HDMI because of something about the silver amount in it and when inserting/removing it, it can ruin the cord and your monitor. Not sure if its true or not. Normally I always use HDMI. Maybe I should go back to the HDMI then instead of the Display Port. That and it cost me like $30 for the DP, I could use the money back. 

Yeah I did notice after I bought it and did more research that people said they had to fine tune it since the color seemed off and washed out. I messed with the settings and have my brightness at 59% and contrast and 69%. But there is no real color option. On the Nvidia settings through for my card I seen it has under its setting "Choose how the color is set" and you can mess with all channels or individual. And with gamma and what not. It also has something about "Digital Vibrance" which can be enhanced. 

So I'm not really sure what to mess with color wise. I do photography and art projects for people do I don't want to mess colors up so much that they appear different on other computers or when printed. I did see when you mess with this stuff it does have refrence images, but I can't tell whats good or bad after I adjust stuff.
