    ATX Tower, Good Dust Filtration, No Windows

    The R5 just came up in my research and it looks to be perfect. (Basically just a revision on the R4). So I think that's where I'm leaning.

    I'm looking for an ATX tower (or mid-tower perhaps). Things I want: - Dust filters by default - Quiet - Understated, no LEDs or Windows or any of that. - At least 6x HDD bays, preferably more Budget is WIDE open; my current case (HAF-932) I've had since 2009 so I really keep these a while...

    Dell U3014 unboxing :)

    Just got my U3014 last night. Tested today; no issues at all with the banding problem that's been mentioned a few times. No testing on overdrive or anything; dont game - but stellar for workstation stuff. Very very pleased.

    spartan programmers setup

    That's my setup for this. Workstation + 27" + 2007FP in portrait. Laptop in docking station. Synergy running between the two. Works wonderfully.

    2 * 8GB ddr3, $179.99 after code

    I do development on my box at home. Most of it enterprise software that interacts with active directory heavily. I also have a colocated VM box for production items. But when I need to quickly spin up a series of VMs to mirror a specific domain structure, the last thing I want to do is push...

    2 * 8GB ddr3, $179.99 after code

    You do understand these are 8gb DIMMS and some people want to get past the 16gb capacity on 4 slots? For a while 32gb in an 4x 8gb dimm configuration has been sitting at about $450. This is a marked drop over that. But thanks for your insight :)

    Best setup under $150

    I will HEAVILY endorse the M-Audio AV30 / AV40 offerings. They both are excellent for music, and bestbuy has the AV30s on sale right now for $70. Theyre VERY good for music. Not amazing for games, but not bad either. Seriously, studio monitors or bookshelf speakers are going to sound many fold...

    Xigmatek Loki Heatsink - $5 AR

    This is a very good heatsink. I've got it on a 2500k clocked at 4.5 and never top 70C. Its surely not the BEST, but its quiet and works well for the price.

    HP ZR2740w - 27" IPS - 2560x1440

    HP ZR2740w - 27" IPS - 2560x1440

    I just got mine. Pleased and upset simultaneously. Pleased: Great picture, no dead pixels, backlight even. Upset: Displayport works perfect. DVI-D from the GTX 260 = no video. Have installed/reinstalled drivers a million times with no luck. Windows sees the monitor, identifies it, verified...

    Looking for the best 27" under $500...

    I think the HP ZR2740w is a good middleground for the 27" Bit more than $500, but can be had a good bit cheaper than the U2711 too. 2560x1440, IPS panel, LED backlight, and a bit less lag than the U2711 all in one. Less...
