    I can’t work out how stupid this question is, but I feel like it’s pretty stupid...

    Upstairs I have a big boys PC, RTX 2080 and Ryzen 3600. Happy days.

    Downstairs I have an old PC, GTX 970 i5 3570k, which is hooked up to the TV.

    I intend to get an LG B9 OLED that supports adaptive sync (g-sync compatible).

    So... if I upgrade to a suitable GPU downstairs (I believe any 10 series or higher, right??) and therefore have G-sync enabled on the TV, will g-sync still work for the newer, more demanding titles that I’ll be streaming from the big PC upstairs?

    I assume not, due the fact that the GPU upstairs will be doing the actual image processing and won’t have anything to do with the TV downstairs, and the GPU downstairs is effectively just a pass through... right??

    it depends on the physical connection downstairs so should be fine

    all it does is send a video stream from one pc to another, think of it like you are watching netflix on your downstairs pc, it makes no difference what hardware netflix is sending you the stream from.

    Btw its not a 10 series card that you need for gsync on the tv, 16 series gtx or one of the rtx models.
