Does anybody know any good reading material or starting points on the most effective way to utilize this monitor? While I didn't get it just for P3D, I would like to try and take advantage of it, if possible. I would hate to make the default 165hz go down to either 30hz or 60hz, I could go for either 120hz or even 144hz, just not to sure the best way to do that, in conjunction with adjusting P3D or NI or NCP settings.
