    New PC build, finally got lucky in a product shuffle

    You should go with the 11700k instead becuse it is basically the same CPU as the 11900k for cheaper. It won't help with VM performance because it doesn't have any extra cores like with previous generations. They are both 8 core parts. The difference in clock speed is also negligable and can...

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    Really? that's great news. I will definitely look into link aggregation. I am a noob with this stuff. What else needs to be compatible? Any recommendations?

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    I looked at the ASUS website and they are actually saying that the SPF+ port cannot do 2.5Gb it will only do 10Gb. But they do say that the 10GbaseT port is actually flexible and will do 1Gb/2.5Gb/5GB/10Gb. But of course I would need both ports. So the search for a router with 2x 2.5Gb ports...

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    I found something that looks like it might work for me. Does anyone have any experience with the ASUS RT-AX89X? I see that it has 2x 10gb ports, although one of them is SFP+. Is there an adapter to use this to connect to a switch with standard RJ-45? Will there be issues with the rest of my gear...

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    Looks like that's a managed switch. I would need a router with 2x 2.5 or higher ports. If I can get a router with 2x 10gb ports for under $500 I would do it.

    Routers with multiple 2.5gb ports?

    I recently purchased a new cable modem with a 2.5gb port and connecting it directly my system with a 2.5Gbps NIC allows me to get speeds up to 1300MBps with Comcast gigabit internet. This is great except for the fact that my router (ASUS RT-AX88U) has 1 gig ports obviously. I ordered a 2.5Gb...

    Right here. Use mine HIF96TVOT3VM9OV Copy this and paste it in at checkout under associate's code. Or here is a link if you prefer it inputs it automatically so when you check out it's already there. https://www.evga.com/associates/default.aspx?associatecode=HIF96TVOT3VM9OV

    For sure. Unfortunately like others have said it's only 3% for GPUs now but that's still good savings. At least it will get you free shipping and maybe more. And some other items are 5%-10%. No downside really. It works out well for everyone. If anyone needs a code here's mine: HIF96TVOT3VM9OV...

    Does [H] need to be (yet another) avenue for scalpers to profit?

    Instead of creating a new account you could have just emailed and asked them to change your username. I've done it a few times myself.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU Review & Benchmarks (Workstation, Gaming, Overclocking)

    I didn't mean changing the refresh rate I meant would the FPS output be effected more by the CPU at a higher refresh rate than below 60 but I guess not. Thanks

    Thanks for the reassurance. Probably not worth the money for little to no impact.

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU Review & Benchmarks (Workstation, Gaming, Overclocking)

    I figured. Just didn't know if there were maybe a few frames to be had in trying for above 60hz and closer to 120hz. I guess the CPU still wouldn't matter even at higher refresh rates right?

    AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU Review & Benchmarks (Workstation, Gaming, Overclocking)

    Would there be any benefit to moving to 5800X from 9800X@4.8GHz if the GPU is a 3090 and it's a pure gaming system running 4k120?
  17. justin_43

    are there gonna be 3090Ti ?

    Its really doubtful they would release a higher end card than what they've already announced any time soon. It would look real bad and people who just spent $1500+ on an RTX 3090 would be pissed. The next possibility would be a refresh in a year. It's not out of the question since the current...

    LG 48CX

    Looks like displayfusion is the way to go. The other program mentioned earlier MonitorKeeper doesn't work for me. It just doesn't do anything and there are no options. My windows still shuffle when it's running. I hope displayfusion will for this. I remember trying it a little while ago to try...

    LG 48CX

    This sounds like it's worth a shot but when I download it I don't see an execuatble file to install it. I have not used github before. How do I install it? Sorry for the noob question. Oh nice. I'd prefer a hardware solution if it fixes the problem reliably. I don't mind spending money to fix...

    Thanks for the ideas guys. I will look into each and see what works for me. I hate that this is supposedly a "feature" and not a bug to fix.

    LG 48CX

    Is anyone using their LG CX 48 in a multi-monitor setup with other HDMI monitors? I am having issues with windows being shuffled around when the monitors go to sleep. It's the same problem that displayport has called hot-plug detect. It's a huge reason I have avoided disaplyport monitors and now...

    BTW what 43"s do you have? Just curious as there aren't many viable options (as I'm sure you know)

    LG 48CX

    Sure no problem! I'm happy to hear that someone else is going with the 2x43" +48" setup. It's interesting that you are going to go with the side monitors in portrait. I think they may be a bit high for me like that but I haven't tried it yet so I don't know for sure. I like the side monitors in...

    Got mine set up today and I have to say this thing is sick! I'm blown away by how good it looks. The blacks are incredible. Especially coming from 15 years of IPS gray/glow whatever. I have not seen problems with blacks with GSYNC enabled. It looks the same to me enabled an disabled. Hopefully...

    LG 48CX

    Cool. Thanks for letting me know. i just called and was able to get the price match. So they refunded me the $100. Anyone else who ordered for $1599 call ASAP while it's still at the lower price and get your $100 back.

    I think the date just gets pushed back by a day everyday. It means nothing though. When I ordered mine 2 days ago it said it would arrive July 13th. But then this morning I got an email that it shipped and will arrive on Monday June 29th. I'm not sure why they are vague on the date but they do...

    This is a bummer. I was so ready to snag one from BB for $1,499. Now they are gouging too. Maybe when they get stock the price will come back down.

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    I have been using a 43" for 5 years now and for most of that time thought it was the perfect size. But lately when gaming I realize I want something slightly larger. For desktop use I'd agree that 43 is the perfect size. But 48" seems to be a size I might like for gaming. I sit pretty close and...

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    The LG CX 48 is my plan is well. Like you said it's not perfect but is as close as we can get right now. It's the only way for g-sync over HDMI and once ampere comes out it should (it better) support it @120hz. And of course none of smearing and response time garbage with OLED.

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    While not certified I can confirm it works. But do yourself a favor and save your money, this monitor is not worth it. I returned mine the next day. After reading this thread and all the issues with this monitor I bought it anyway. I was hoping that I would be able to deal with the issues but I...

    That would be nice. Can someone who has it already comment on this? How does text look to you with clear type at 100% scaling from 3 feet away? How about 2 feet? Any opinions would be welcome.

    The perfect 4K 43” monitor! Soon! Asus XG438Q ROG

    While you are probably right, I'm hoping it's a little cheaper than that considering the Acer that's using the same panel will be $1299.

    Need Some Help - Best 43"+ Graphics 4K Monitor for Adobe CC

    There aren't many monitors to choose from at this size unfortunately. It seems it's just not popular enough for these companies to invest in. I doubt it will have 10 bit color, and will be a VA panel with 120hz refresh rate, but the yet unreleased ASUS XG43Q should be the best 43" on the market...

    So in general do the MS PC ports run well on a decent PC ?

    I have to say Forza 7 runs really well on my 4820k. I am not having any frame time issues. But I do run it at 4k with 2x 1080ti's so that probably cuts down on CPU issues as it's not my bottleneck. I also have no issues with Forza Horizon 3, Killer Instinct or Gears 4. All run buttery smooth...

    ASUS to customer: we don't care if you didn't cause the problem. We still won't fix motherboard.

    If you are within 30 days of purchase, why not return the board to newegg? If they sent it to you damaged I'm pretty sure they will swap it out for a new one.

    Current 43" 4K options?

    I love my Wasabi Mango UHD430. It's an AH-IPS panel and has no image retention issues. Really no issues at all. If you don't mind buying from Korea it's a great option. I got a A+ grade panel from ebay and it's served my really well.
