    Seasonic X-1250 vs Plat 1000. Better value?

    Ended up going with the X-1250. Seemed like I couldn't go wrong with either unit and I'm sure having the extra power available isn't a bad thing. I got in in the computer earlier in the week and have been satisfied with it. The finish on this unit is top notch. They give you enough cables to...

    Seasonic X-1250 vs Plat 1000. Better value?

    I am deciding between these 2 ps's and am having trouble deciding which is the better value. I have read all of the Plat 1000 review and it appears to be a near flawless unit. My issue is that I would be better future proofed If I went with the x-1250 but there are no reviews yet to confirm it...

    Triple Mount Large Screen with smaller side.

    The general recommendation for the side panels is going to be to use something with an IPS panel so that you can take advantage of the better viewing angles. LED or not, TN panels offer poorer viewing angles that are greatly exaggerated when rotated in portrait. As for a mount, any mount...
