Thanks for all the input. In my case I'm not really concerned with the hardware being period correct just that nothing will cause problems with games, but I do love the period correct discussion for info purposes.
So I started thinking about trying to run these older games at much higher resolutions and framerates, and I looked up Gsync. The wiki says that Gsync requires at least a 6xx series and Windows 7. It would really be cool if it were possible to get it working on Windows XP. Even if I can't get gsync itself working would I still be able to drive a 144hz display with say a 690 in XP? I don't have any experience with monitors over 60hz and I just wanted to make sure you don't need gsync to drive them. Anyone have any experience with this?
It's probably a stupid question I don't see why I couldn't just drive those monitors at the higher framerate I think Gsync is just for the way the frames are requested and displayed not to do with the overall frequency and as long as the card can do that refresh rate it should be fine right?
