    Alienware AW3821DW - What should I do?

    Wow, that's crazy that a replacement is a month out! Mine still hasn't shipped from Dell and it's telling me May 18th before it's shipped. I'm thinking about just cancelling the order and sticking with the LG for the time being since I'm loving the monitor so far and like I said, I can't tell...

    Alienware AW3821DW - What should I do?

    Wow, that sucks man. Hopefully the next panel you get won't have any issues. I was torn between the very same 2 monitors you were so I ended up ordering both just to see if G-Sync ultimate makes that much difference because really, that's the only thing the Alienware has going for it over the...

    AW3821DW (Nov 2020) with GSync Ultimate

    Does this monitor come with software/controls to let you partition/divide the screen into various configurations?

    The best PC case I ever owned was a...

    My favorite is the Antec Twelve Hundred. I've used it for almost 10 years now and if it wasn't for the fact I'm moving away from 3.5" drives and the front fan filters weren't such a bitch to remove to clean I'd probably keep it for another 10. Currently have a Fractal Design Define R6 being...

    Help me choose a case

    It is a nice case. I do like how easy it is to remove the side panels with the latches. The back side on mine though might be defective. It released ok but when I go to put it back on I have to slam it for the latch to catch and secure it in place. Even if I squeeze the latch while closing it...

    Help me choose a case

    I just received the case yesterday and I see what you mean about the front filter. I figured it was difficult to clean because of all the plastic in between the screen mesh so I figured I would just wash it instead of using compressed air. Now I see that the filter is built-in to the front panel...

    Help me choose a case

    Yeah I got the room for it. My desk has an area specifically designed for a computer and I've got about 24" of clearance on the height. I just need a case that has good airflow and I like how this has a mesh front. Sucks about the front filter though. Another reason I liked it was because the...

    Since you've owned this case a couple months now what are your thoughts on it? I'm thinking about getting this case to replace my Antec Twelve Hundred.

    Samsung 32" CHG70

    Ok, so I found out that if you set the response time on the 32" version to faster or fastest it doesn't use PWM. From tftcentral's review: I think I may end up keeping the 32" for now. If it causes me any issues then I can always return it to Costco but I've been using a Dell for 7 years that...

    Samsung 32" CHG70

    I was able to adjust the color profile on my 32" and it's pretty good even at max brightness. I tend to usually play games with higher brightness settings anyways. My issue is it's not good for non-gaming use. So I'm thinking maybe I'll order the 27" version from Newegg since they have it 20%...

    Samsung 32" CHG70

    Well I got this monitor today and can confirm after testing that the 32" model does indeed have PWM if brightness isn't set at 100. So what I did was just left the brightness setting at 100 and then adjusted the brightness/contrast/gamma in the nvidia control panel to my liking and it works fine...

    Samsung 32" CHG70

    Wow, so the 27" doesn't have it but the 32" does and Samsung advertises that neither have it. That's deceptive. Lawsuit incoming.

    Samsung 32" CHG70

    Where did you hear about this? I read rtings.com review of it and in their tests they show no PWM.

    Samsung 32" CHG70

    Anyone here own this monitor and care to share your experiences with it? I just ordered it from Costco and waiting for it to arrive. They had a nice deal on it and figured nothing to lose getting it from Costco. My only issue is that I presently have a GTX 970 card so I won't be able to take...

    Logitech G5 Replacement

    I've used the Logitech G5 for about six years now and I'm also looking for something relatively close to it, just with more buttons. The Genius Gila is a solid mouse and feels just as good in the hand. If you can get past the somewhat poor design of the scroll wheel and having to create macros...

    New Gaming Mouse

    So, after playing more with the M95 this weekend I've decided to send it back. It's a good mouse but just not quite comfortable in my hand and I don't particularly care for the feel of the mouse clicks. I'll also be returning the Cyborg M.M.O. 7. It's also not a very comfortable mouse for me...

    Haven't used the Naga Hex before but according to the listed dimensions is slightly bigger... Corsair M90/95 4.65” (L) x 2.84” (W) x 1.58” (H) Naga Hex 4.57” (L) x 2.76” (W) x 1.81” (H)

    New Gaming Mouse

    Well I received it yesterday afternoon and I've been spending time gaming with it last night and this morning. Just so you know, I'm a palm gripper and I'm giving my impressions based on how the mouse feels with that type of grip. The mouse is pretty solid -- I like the build the quality. The...

    Before I decide on keeping the Cyborg I'm gonna try the Corsair M95. Just ordered it today. Heard good things about it.

    New Gaming Mouse

    I just received the mouse today and have been playing with it for the last hour or so. I'm impressed with the customization of this mouse. I like the button lay-out and didn't find myself having to re-adjust my hand to reach the back ones on the side. You do realize you can move that whole side...

    New Gaming Mouse

    Decided to pass on the Naga Hex. I've read too many reviews and user comments about how the mouse is light weight and I don't like that in a mouse. I picked up the Genius Gila and have been messing around with it the last few days. The mouse is comfortable, button lay-out is great and I can...

    New Gaming Mouse

    Anyone have opinions on the Razer Naga Hex or Genius Gila gaming mice? I currently use the Logitech G5 and need a mouse with more buttons. I've tried the G600 and didn't like the button layout on the side. Too many buttons and too small for my thumb. I like how the layout looks on the Naga Hex...

    Need help deciding what to upgrade

    Yes, I run all my games at 2048x1152 and generally have no issues. Games like Skyrim, Diablo III, Old Republic....all run flawlessly at max settings. It was GW2 I had issues with especially in world vs. world. Since you're advising me not to get a Q9550 then maybe I'll just look into getting a...

    Need some upgrade advice!

    I guess I could get something like this.... LINK and then just unlock it to a 6970 like people have been doing. Save myself $70. My only concern is going to ATI. It's been years since I've had one and didn't have good luck with the last one I owned. In the past they've had shitty driver...

    Need some upgrade advice!

    Thanks for the suggestions!! Zepher - Yeah, I would probably sell off my old parts so that def. helps with the upgrade. Forceman - That build looks like just what I want to go for. What do you think about this video card for $20 more? LINK

    Need some upgrade advice!

    So I got some money for Christmas and was going to use that towards upgrading certain components of my PC. Trouble is, I don't know where I should start first. A couple of things you should know -- 1) I primarily use this computer for gaming and 2) I have a Dell sp2309w monitor which has a...

    Time Travel Mystery of the Day

    Upgrading video card & PSU question

    I'm going to upgrade my GTX 260 card to a GTX 460 or 470 but I understand the min. is 550w psu. I have a Corsair 520w modular psu. Do you think I can get by without having to upgrade my psu too?

    5850 help

    Upgrading my GTX260 card and was going to get a 5850. I can get a Sapphire HD 5850 for about $299 or spend an extra $50 and get the Toxic version. Is it worth the extra money for the Toxic or should I save my money and get the $299 one? Thanks for your help.

    Lcd display help

    This made me laugh. Just because it has an IPS panel doesn't mean its the best for gaming. Sorry but viewing angles doesn't = better gaming monitor. I don't sit on my ceiling and game on my computer, I don't sit on the floor from across the room and game on my computer. Just because I can see...
