I miss my NEC CRT so I am going to be getting the Asus VG248QE 24" 144Hz Monitor for my next build and I want to go with Nvidia so I can try the lightboost 2d thing and the monitor overclocking. What would be a good card to go with for this monitor? I'm guessing a Titan would be overkill for the max resolution of the monitor at 1920x1080. What other Nvidia cards support monitor overclocking and 2d lightboost?

Video cards don't do "monitor overclocking", and in fact, monitor overclocking involves going into the electronics and tinkering with it.

Also 2D is pretty much "lolwut?" work for a GPU these days. Hell an Intel HD2000 would have no trouble doing 1080p@144Hz

Aha... I think it's a gross misnaming to call "sending more frames than you're actually rated for" monitor overclocking. But whatever. And if it's EVGA that's the only tool that will let you force a higher refresh rate, then chances are, you're limited to EVGA cards.

In any case, it looks like this is a 3D thing, so pretty much anything that supports NVIDIA 3D should support LightBoost, if the monitor supports it. And either way, you're getting a 144Hz monitor, I think you should play with that before being dissatisfied with it, because at that rate, you're way beyond the threshold for human reaction time.
