    I think we need to have a serious discussion about the Oculus Rift.

    4K, OLED, and 120hz, while these are positive advancements in display technology they still remain the same thing at the core, a flat screen that uses different percentages of our viewing field. Some screens are more sharp, faster or have better colors, but there always has remained the...

    Black screen after 580 install...power problem?

    So today I installed a 580gtx into a somewhat old amd system. I installed the 580 and connected the two 8-pin connectors into the 580, when I press the power the 580 fans rev up and down just like a car engine and my screen stays black. The error codes on my mobo change in succession with the...

    How far down the road can we expect the GTX 660 ti ?

    Reading about these $600 video cards is fun and everything but for the majority of us that is not a option. So if the GTX 680 comes out on Thursday when could we reasonably expect the 'sweet spot' to get a refresh?

    How bad of a bottleneck would I have? 560ti on x2 4200 (OC to 2.4)

    Samsung T240 vs Benq v2400w

    Its seems like these two TN are two of the better two 24" for gaming. What one takes top marks for color, sharpens and ghosting? Let the debate begin.

    Benq V2400W discontinued.

    When did this happen? And why? I thought the v2400w was benq’s best made and best selling screen. Has it been replaced by something already? The life cycle was not even a year on this screen...odd.

    Upgrade dilemma

    So a friend of mine is offering to sell his two evga 260 GTX to me for $240. I feel it would be a good upgrade from my 8800gt’s (in sli), however would the money be better spent on a new single card (280 GTX?? or 4890)? What do you guys think?

    Should I use an adaptor?

    I just bought a V2400W (that has HDMI) and Im going to be running two 8800GT via SLI. Now should I use a DVI cable or an DVI to HDMI adaptor for the connection? Would there be any advantage in doing so?
  32. G

    A simple yes or no is all I need. (about 8800GT in SLI)

    Will a evga 8800GT SSC (700MHz) edition with an evga 8800gt standard (600MHz) work together in SLI?
