    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    Work is paying so price isn't an issue, just finding something in stock that is high quality and I'd like to avoid bezels if I can. I can get the LC49G95TSSNXZA on Amazon today, but have only been buying IPS monitors since they came out and don't have any experience with VA/QLED.

    Samsung Odyssey 1440p VA monitors 240hz curved

    I've had a Dell U4919DW ton backorder 2 months and need to get something before the end of the month. How does this stack up colorwise QLED vs IPS?

    Myst remake- coming August 26th

    Yeah, we played every one as a family, the original on a Mac PowerPC my dad had gotten for work, and would pretty much buy each new one when it came out. We were so excited for Riven. I got really into the books as well.

    I think I remember my dad trying to map that all out, we never quite understood the puzzle and just brute forced it.

    Like hiding a doorway behind a door that you’d just opened? I think they did that twice in Riven.

    How do I build a high performance silent system

    I recently upgraded my PC and due to the state of parts availability ended up with an Asus ROG prebuilt (11700 / 3080). It sounds like a jet, with the fans constantly ramping up and down during gameplay. Id known before purchasing it that this particular case had issues with cooling and...

    Don’t know if things are starting to free up, but Microcenter is now able to keep at least some stuff in stock now. They had 3070ti starting at 800 and 3080ti starting at 1700 (lol) when I stopped by around 1:00 today.

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Got a Asus prebuilt today with a 3080 for $2000. I was planning on upgrading my whole system anyway, but wanted an AMD processor. Need to figure out if I should try to sell this 11700 system without the GPU or just keep all of the parts as my new build.

    3070, 3080 or 3090 for 4k@120

    What card would I need to push 4K @ 120Hz? I’m not playing anything crazy, Anno 1800 and some older games like ARK, but my understanding is that for 4K the memory for textures is a limiting factor.

    LG CX 48" 55" 65" 77" 4K OLED TV 120Hz VRR HDMI 2.1 - Microcenter (Refurbished)

    I was at MC last week specifically looking to see if they had any 48” CXs in stock, saw that had 5 refurbs for the $999 price and decided to think about it (planning on doing a new build in May, don’t think my 970 could drive a 4K display). 24 hours later it was on SlickDeals and I’m regretting...

    LG 48CX

    I’m thinking about getting a 48CX for my office, but don’t have the option of going on a stand behind the desk. Would 36” be too close? What’s the optimal viewing distance for a 48” screen? Also, what’s a good price for those? I see has these for $1450, but the 55” in store is 1400...

If I play the same file in Windows Media Player its fine. Standard VBR mp3 files. Any ideas? Windows 10 Pro, Xeon E2286M, 64 GB RAM. Forgot to...
