    I'm utterly in love with my CX. If there is one thing I think is utterly stupid it's the super thin screen on the top half. This thing is EXPENSIVE and it's far FAR too easy to break it moving it. There isn't ANY point in it being that thin on the top since it has to have the thick portion on...

    I just leave the one pixel strip and ignore it. Make the taskbar a darker shade and just go with it. Be common sense here... since the 1 pixel strip is the LAST strip on the bottom, you won't ever really be able to see damage to those pixels even IF it happens. Which it won't in any...

    Figuring out when supply equals demand

    Nvidia and AMD and Intel will continue to release new video cards. They ARE selling them. We just aren't getting them where we want them in our own hands. R&D and the development cycle can not stop or be substantially delayed just because their target audience isn't getting the product. It's...

    considering how much work LG has put into the firmware for us already... I'd be leery as hell of any other brand. LG has actually, for the most part, tried hard to solve every issue possible. Which a company SHOULD when you buy a $1500 panel. Don't expect that level of service or attention...

    Saw some 6700 XTs

    Holy moley. Those are as much or more than my 3080 FTW3 was. But this is why I've also given up trying to acquire cards for my customer builds. I now tell people: "You bring me the video card, then we'll build the system." Because I just won't be responsible for the amount of time and...

    Where is this urgency for new GPUs coming from?

    Agreed... this has been going on long enough now that it's hard to even deal with GPUs that are legitimately getting old and failing. People with old GPUs need new GPUs. I had a guy in my shop just yesterday we were doing some other maintenance on his system and his 1070 Ti was found to have...

    Unless you just leave screenshift on... then it's ok. :) I know, that one does need fixing if you want to leave it off.

    LG 48CX

    Agreed. On 3.21.16 as well and things seem to be VERY good in HDR now. And SDR too... Any remaining issues are pretty minor.

    Set the Nvidia panel to RGB instead of explicitly to 444, and look at your text again. Tell me what you think.

    And bear in mind 120nits is an "enchanced" normal because most sets need it. In theory, 100nits is ideal. And I'm very happy in the 20s in a dim room. It's plenty bright and where I like it for reading and gaming. HDR content is a different matter entirely. But for SDR and desktop I can't...

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    Early last year I was buying the 8GB ASROCK RX570 for about $125 shipped.

    Kinda already burned my bridges on that phone call. The months of frustration was likely apparent. :P

    I run a computer shop. Have for decades. I speak carefully to respect the forum and to never look like I'm advertising.

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    Well, I just had a great phone call. Some miner called asking if I wanted to buy 20 EVGA Gold power supplies off them... because they had to buy combos to get the cards. Geeeeeeeee..... I wonder where they've been botting cards that has a combo requirement you can't return? I don't need the...

    Every desirable video card model is now OOS tonight. Unreal.

    I go looking again tonight... no 1660 super cards. I mean... what the actual hell? WHO is sucking up every 1660 card? There was not even a hint of 1660's suddenly having a run on them until the weekend of black friday when every video card currently being made disappeared. I understood to...
