    What 4k monitor to get for content creation and some gaming.

    What 4k monitor to get for content creation and some gaming.

    I was not really looking at curved since I need good color accuracy for content creation. 43 inch just seems too big. I haven't used a 43 inch before. Friends have 27 or 32 inch 4k monitors no one has a curved or 43 inch. The Eizo cs2740 has good color accuracy and 5 year warranty but is...

    What 4k monitor to get for content creation and some gaming.

    Thinking most of the higher refresh 4k panels seem to have issues so thinking of getting either a Benq PD3200U or the newer PD3220U or possibly a Dell Dell UltraSharp 4k UP3216Q or Dell Ultrasharp U3219Q but I missed the Dell Black Friday sale not sure if I want to hold out till April for the...

    ASUS ProArt PA32UCG initial impressions

    Bigmonitorguy Thank you for the feedback. Been using the same set up for both work and gaming. Just having a hard time spending that much for the high refresh rate with the blooming issues and you said it had dead pixels. Microcenter stocks PG32UQX so that wouldn't be too hard to return...

    ASUS ProArt PA32UCG initial impressions

    Bigmonitorguy Do you feel the Asus ProArt PA32UCG is worth the premium over something like a Benq PD3220U ~$1k for the refresh rate? Also just got a 3090. I am a content creator that does some gaming mostly Final fantasy 14 and some Star Wars Squadrons, Elite Dangerous. Been on two Dell...

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    Is the Asus PG32UQ/PA32UCGworth the $3,000/$4000 price premium for /144/120hz with all the issues it seems to be having or should I be waiting? I seen a PS32UCG in person it looks great if you have one with no defects but I didn't feel it was worth the $3000+ over the Benq PD3220U which I...

    What 4k monitor to get for content creation and some gaming.

    Bigmonitorguy Thank you. I was looking at 32 and maybe 27 inch options. 43 inch just seems to big. I mean it could maybe fit with another monitor. I did have 3 2412M at one point for surround in battlefield but I put one on the server. Have to actually measure it. I still want a secondary...

    What 4k monitor to get for content creation and some gaming.

    Thank you for the replies. KazeoHin How is the color accuracy on the Asus xg439q? Is 43 inches too big? I was hearing 32 inches is on the big side for some people Freekill I need a wide gamut for editing. I hear the M32U is a lottery if you get a good one from the reviews on Bestbuy and...

    dual opteron 6 core 24 bay supermicro server won't post after power down to install 14 tb drives

    Thank you for the replies. Don't think its the drives. System won't post. Seems like the power supply did take the motherboard with it since I tried another power supply from another system and it still wont post. I didn't remove any drives it has 24 bays. Just added 4 to set up another raid.

    Nope. Just shut down server, I slided out empty cadies put the 4 drives I shucked in. Server wouldn't post when powered up. The power supplies is bad according to the tester it probably took the motherboard with it not sure if this worth trying to salvage buying another board and power...

    MainGear Pre Config. Thoughts?

    I am not a fan of MSI are there other motherboard options? What is the brand and ram configuration how many sticks and speed of each? What is the brand and rating of the power supply? For $2700 they better be giving you an Corsair, Evga, Seasonic 80 Plus Gold or better unit.

    Star Wars: Squadrons

    VKB Gladiator NXT works pretty well. May need a separate throttle since using the one on the stick is a bit awkward and you don't quite have enough buttons for everything. I have not finished the campaign so not sure if you earn all the upgrades via campaign single player or you have to play...

    Has anyone tried Threadripper 3 and Windows 7 ?

    I have my 3960x on Gigabyte TRX40 Designaire working with a dual boot with OSX/Win10. Win7 wouldn't install wouldn't see any drives to install so I would say Win 7 doesn't work unless someone has a work around.
