    Last revision build before Black Friday / Cyber Monday

    Hi there, After much research these past few weeks I think I've settled down on this build. This will be a gaming / streaming / editing rig and I'm getting ready for Cyberpunk 2077 at 1440p :P I will try my best to go to Micro Center Monday but work and life won't allow me to go before. Please...

    RIP Newegg, you weren't good lately anyway

    Maybe I'm wrong and someone could confirm or infirm but I think NE is doing the shady fake sale tactic for Black Friday. I'm making a new rig so I've made a spreadsheet and I started putting pricing on it about 2-3 weeks ago (mostly from NE) For example: Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 650W previous...

    End of Year Build (it's been five years!)

    I see what you mean. I may aim for the 3600 and if there's some stupid sale on Black Friday maybe I'll upgrade to 3700 Is there anything I should aim for with RAM? the market is so overcrowded it's hard to know.

    End of Year Build (it's been five years!)

    Thanks for the replies! I had put the 3600X because when I looked on Newegg it was just ~$30 more than the 3600 and the only 3700 is the X version which is a $100 more than the 3600X. Is there a 3700 non-X of the Ryzen 7? If you guys think that 650W is enough for the PSU that's fine with me :)...

    End of Year Build (it's been five years!)

    Hi guys! My last build was 2014 so it's about damn time for an upgrade. I need to be ready for Cyberpunk so I plan to build a new rig around Black Friday / Christmas. I usually go mid/high end from the previous gen when I build to save cost. My usage is for games, video editing for YT and...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Speaking of NVidia settings. I got my replacement and can't for the life of me remember how I had it setup on my previous unit to have ULMB 120Hz in desktop and 144hz G-SYNC in games. Currently I have it set in Display Resolution at 144hz so when I'm on desktop it's at that rate and I have to...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    I got my replacement Swift from Amazon. No dead pixel I could notice, all good. Now to hope I don't blurry text and flashes in 3 months. Where were TFTCentral's recommended settings again? I'm having trouble finding them on their test.

    That is not the "only" problem at all. Maybe when you first get it and even then some people have had DP cable issues but the real problem is that even if it's perfect when you get it (mine was) it may all turn to crap within 3 months.

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    My concern even if I try to escalate is that I'm sure they'll tell me I bought it on Amazon and so they can't issue a refund. Edit: just got off the phone with Amazon and they are sending me a replacement free of charge with free return label. Did I mention I love this company?

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Yeah that's pretty much what I decided to roll the dice on when I bought it and well.... If I bought it on Amazon the RMA still works right? and one more question. I'm giving this one more chance but if the replacement fails also I would like (expect?) a refund and just buy a different...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Well fuck... here we go I got the dreaded blurry text, flickering screen issue... Just started tonight. Bought mine around Jan. 10 so par for the course of fail around 3 months I haven't really checked the forums since I bought so I'm assuming my option(s) are RMA and pray? edit 1: seems to go...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    No complaints on the one I just got so far either. No dead pixels I could notice, nor any blatant BLB or anything so I'm happy. Problems seem to pop up after 2-3 months though so i'm crossing fingers.
