    Samsung Odyssey ARK 55" 4K Gaming monitor

    I have a Samsung QN5580T I use as my monitor. This looks like a curved version with (hopefully) a higher refresh rate, though 60hz is ok for my old eyes. I am mostly happy with this, but 4k seems a bit too stretched on it. A higher res would be nice.

    Are there earbuds that sound as good as my Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 Ohm ?

    I am surprised the suggesting something this inexpensive, I have been amazingly satisfied with the MPOW X3 earbuds. I have the exact same DT 770 headphones you mentioned. These are not as good, but they do pretty nicely. They are bass heavy. You will want to use something that gives you an...

    good cheap laser printer? with cheap toner?

    new to VR and looking for purchase recommendations

    I can do what I feel like pricewise. It's more about the value to me than the price. If it actually does enough to be worth it, then I'm willing to spend the $800 someone mentioned above. If I get more value out of the other one that would be more my inclination. Game wise, I honestly don't know...

    new to VR and looking for purchase recommendations

    I am looking at jumping into the world of VR displays. I'm not in a hurry and don't mind waiting for new products to hit the market. I already have an RTX 2080 card. I'm wondering what might be my best options for the best VR experience available. thanks

    Best Way to Achieve Silence AND good temps in air cooled case with 5x00X Processor and Big Navi or RTX3080

    Make sure the bios in the motherboard you get lets you fine-tune the fan controls. Sure, I have the quietest fans out there, a giant heatsink for the CPU. A triple fan 2080 GPU with a huge heatsink, etc. etc. All the things for the quietest computer possible. However most of the time none of...

    What the title says. I'm looking for a gaming laptop with a 1660ti. Of course it's going to make noise while gaming, but I want one that is completely dead silent when word processing or web surfing. Hopefully under $1000. Intel chipset not AMD. Thanks
