    Last revision build before Black Friday / Cyber Monday

    Hi there, After much research these past few weeks I think I've settled down on this build. This will be a gaming / streaming / editing rig and I'm getting ready for Cyberpunk 2077 at 1440p :P I will try my best to go to Micro Center Monday but work and life won't allow me to go before. Please...

    RIP Newegg, you weren't good lately anyway

    Maybe I'm wrong and someone could confirm or infirm but I think NE is doing the shady fake sale tactic for Black Friday. I'm making a new rig so I've made a spreadsheet and I started putting pricing on it about 2-3 weeks ago (mostly from NE) For example: Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 650W previous...

    End of Year Build (it's been five years!)

    I see what you mean. I may aim for the 3600 and if there's some stupid sale on Black Friday maybe I'll upgrade to 3700 Is there anything I should aim for with RAM? the market is so overcrowded it's hard to know.

    End of Year Build (it's been five years!)

    Thanks for the replies! I had put the 3600X because when I looked on Newegg it was just ~$30 more than the 3600 and the only 3700 is the X version which is a $100 more than the 3600X. Is there a 3700 non-X of the Ryzen 7? If you guys think that 650W is enough for the PSU that's fine with me :)...

    End of Year Build (it's been five years!)

    Hi guys! My last build was 2014 so it's about damn time for an upgrade. I need to be ready for Cyberpunk so I plan to build a new rig around Black Friday / Christmas. I usually go mid/high end from the previous gen when I build to save cost. My usage is for games, video editing for YT and...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Speaking of NVidia settings. I got my replacement and can't for the life of me remember how I had it setup on my previous unit to have ULMB 120Hz in desktop and 144hz G-SYNC in games. Currently I have it set in Display Resolution at 144hz so when I'm on desktop it's at that rate and I have to...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    I got my replacement Swift from Amazon. No dead pixel I could notice, all good. Now to hope I don't blurry text and flashes in 3 months. Where were TFTCentral's recommended settings again? I'm having trouble finding them on their test.

    That is not the "only" problem at all. Maybe when you first get it and even then some people have had DP cable issues but the real problem is that even if it's perfect when you get it (mine was) it may all turn to crap within 3 months.

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    My concern even if I try to escalate is that I'm sure they'll tell me I bought it on Amazon and so they can't issue a refund. Edit: just got off the phone with Amazon and they are sending me a replacement free of charge with free return label. Did I mention I love this company?

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Yeah that's pretty much what I decided to roll the dice on when I bought it and well.... If I bought it on Amazon the RMA still works right? and one more question. I'm giving this one more chance but if the replacement fails also I would like (expect?) a refund and just buy a different...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Well fuck... here we go I got the dreaded blurry text, flickering screen issue... Just started tonight. Bought mine around Jan. 10 so par for the course of fail around 3 months I haven't really checked the forums since I bought so I'm assuming my option(s) are RMA and pray? edit 1: seems to go...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    No complaints on the one I just got so far either. No dead pixels I could notice, nor any blatant BLB or anything so I'm happy. Problems seem to pop up after 2-3 months though so i'm crossing fingers.

    yeah I really like ULMB in desktop but anytime you watched a video the vertical lines pop up so it's annoying.

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    I have a question regarding that. I really like ULMB on my desktop but yesterday I launched WoW and noticed vertical lines as soon as the camera moved. So I alt-Tabbed and noticed I was still in ULMB and not in G-Sync so I witch ULMB off and turned G-Sync back on and the lines didn't show...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Yeah I agree but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything obvious. Thanks. Thanks for that! That did it. For some reason I was changing it in 'Adjust Desktop Size and Position' but not in the actual 'Change Resolution'. What's the difference between the 2? Is brightness...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Sooo noob question. Just received my swift (big change from my samsung 220) and I've never really looked into checking monitors for defects or calibrating. Is there a website you can recommend for such things? Also for some reason my ULMB option is greyed out. I tried disabling G-Sync and...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Well after getting notifications from Newegg that it was available I ordered it (from Amazon). I have prime so I should get it early next week. Hoepfully it's not a dud and it doesn't die on me after 3 months.

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    The actual scary part for me on that thread is the actual RMA. People have been posting about this issue in the thread for a good month and not a peep from a CS Rep or anything and no acknowledgment of the issue by ASUS. My guess is if they wanted to say something they would have done so...

    Acer announces 4K 28" monitor with Gsync

    Haha I have a GTX 760 and I'm wondering the same. I was pretty set on the Swift but the scarcity has given me time to mull over all the issues it seems to have and I've basically been driven scared into the ground. So now I'm checking this one which seems much more reliable but now after a...

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Granted people always a more vocal about issues especially on official forums but comparatively a lot of people seem to be having the same issue, they all posted screenshots and it looks horrid. The really scary part is that it happens randomly after a few days/weeks/months of use when returns...

    Damn..... I was going to buy this as soon as I bought one but this is terrifying. The RMA part doesn't help alleviate concerns. Someone needs to come up with a competing product stat!

    I'm going to assume GOG here. I had a similar problem trying to capture Wing Commander we even though it's a .exe the capture program doesn't recognize it as a game but more as a fullscreen app and so it kept capturing the dekstop.

    T'es bien cocu, j'habite Houston et c'est quasi introuvable ici... That's sounds about right. You're brave (foolish?), I could never drop $800 on a sketchy site.

    Anyone order from there? I've been looking for one for a while now so it's tempting but I'm concerned about support and replacements if needed.

    60hz to 144hz more incrediable than G-Sync?

    The reason the Asus is so popular is sure because it's G-Sync but I think mostly because it's 27" 1440p with low response.

    Cannot Decide on a Panel Type...

    Well I did read that the Swift has (much) better color than most other TN so I wonder. As far as video editing you can't really compete against what everyone watching might have. Setting for monitors are all over the place. But it's true that color accuracy for video is less important than for...

    Cannot Decide on a Panel Type...

    I guess Ideally I get a VA, an IPS and the Swift and return the 2 I don't like but that's a lot of upfront cash especially if you have to pay for shipping back.

    Cannot Decide on a Panel Type...

    If I'm going Koren I think I'd choose the X-Star since I need to put a VESA mount on it.
