    Interest in brand new 8K 80Hz CRT for 8000$?

    You are 10 days late for this. Not practical. Weight, power usage, radiation, stability of the mask, all impractical.

    EVGA Supernova 650 G3 fan noise and Eco mode

    I have the same unit (850w), and same issue. I blast it out with my air compressor, and it solves it for a few months.

    Q9650 vid 1.30 Oced 3.8G DDR3 1333 long term statistics

    A Sandybridge systen would be a nice upgrade, and you could keep your DDR3. An i7 2600K is one of the best bang for buck deals on the market if you shop around. I recommend a Gigabyte Z68 UD series mobo. X58/Z97 mobos are too expensive IMO. Superb and stable patform, I had mine for eight years...

    Are these tweaks just nonsense or anything good?

    Some of them can work in various specific use cases, meaning specific hardware and application configs. If you just want a good all purpose tweak, without worring about compatibility or security degredation, just disable the Sysmain service (Superfetch) and use an app like Shut Up 10, or WPD to...

    What's better? A newer SINGLE CPU or older DUAL CPU?

    Anything Windows sucks on multiple sockets, even S2019. Faster single package would be better IMO. You will learn real quick that the Windows scheduler is trash the more logical cores you throw at it.

    What's a good therman grease? Are thermal pads any good?

    The graphite pads/ sheets, are excellent performers. A few degrees off typical high end pastes, an never have to worry about uniformity or drying out. The Grizzly brand is a little better, but more fragile and harder to get to stay flat...

    VA better than IPS for eye comfort and reading?

    Poor black levels, within reason, would not be as much of an issue with IPS, if it were not for the "IPS glow" and uniformity issues (bleed), on black or dark backgrounds. It's really the only drawback of IPS compared to other LCD tech, but it is a huge issue. I don't know if anyone in this...

    VA better than IPS for eye comfort and reading?

    The UFO test has nothing to do with black smearing. Make a text document, or use the FlatpanelsHD app to make a white text on black background page, and scroll or movve it around.

    VA better than IPS for eye comfort and reading?

    The reviews I have seen state it's stil there, just not as bad. Typically, if you raise gamma or brightness, it reduces smearing, because you are reducing the number black pixels into gray. Grey change response is far better than black. So for the worst cases, it's probably a factor of not using...

    VA better than IPS for eye comfort and reading?

    The shimmering, black crush/ smearing, and gamma shift of VA, would give me more problems than a bit of eye strain, even if that were the case with IPS. IPS only drawbacks are to do with black level and uniformity. The only reason VA has better black level, is the reason it has the gamma shift...
