    35" Monoprice Zero-G 31005 Curved 3440x1440 FreeSync2 100hz Thoughts on the above for $500 right now? Either I suck at searching, or it appears no one is talking about this monitor yet. On paper, it seems like a nice fit, although I have no experience with Monoprice's reputation when it comes to monitors...

    Best pre-built HTPC w/ Nvidia GPU for 4K@60Hz HDMI 2.0 HDCP 2.2

    Edit: Going w/ Android based solution + HD Homerun Prime (either Shield or the 900E's built in Android OS). Thanks! -------- So I ordered a Sony XBR-75X900E, and like an idiot completely forgot that the old 2015 Alienware Alpha HTPC I've been using (love that little thing BTW, has been a...

    Best 4G ~8" Android Tablet?

    Hi Guys, I currently have a simple Galaxy Tab 3 7" low end 4G tablet, which I use as my car's ICE via bluetooth for music playback, navigation, digital gauges with Torque Pro, and smart radar detector. Its a little taxing for such a low end system. Anyone recommend a reasonably high end...

    Audio for Dummies - Atmos Speaker setup Windows 10?

    - Mods Please Delete, I figured it out - I figured out how to get Atmos ceiling speakers to work in Windows 10. The fact that there's no option for 5.1.2 speaker selection on speaker configuration is irrelevant. I just had to set my Pioneer Elite VSX-90 to mode "Stream Direct", or else it...

    Mesh (Eero or Luma) vs Mainstream+Range Extender vs Monster Router

    I have CAT6 in every room of my home, with most of my machines hardwired, and two WirelessAC 1900 routers. Works great for me. But my tech-tarded sister just bought a new large two story house, and wants an upgraded wifi network. Wiring the home isn't an option. I stumbled upon consumer...

    Consolidated "supercomputer" serving weak tiny-PC's for Residential Use

    My sister has just purchase a beautiful new home, and as always I fly out and hook them up with wired CAT6, home theater PCs, audio setup, latest WAP tech, and so forth since they aren't good about that sort of thing. For this new build, since it has been many years and they are due for...

    2x Venturi HP-14 Push-Pull Duct-Tape modded to 120mm radiator?

    Hi Guys, I have a R9 295x2 120mm radiator sitting in the top back 140mm exhaust slot on my case. I was considering upgrading to two HP-14 140mm fans in push-pull, since they have both 140mm and 120mm replaceable rubber mounting corners, and then using the "duct tape" mod to ensure an air-tight...

    Largest AIO Cooler for 2016 - 420MM on the horizon?

    Correct me if you disagree, but when it comes to water coolers, I was always told that bigger is always better. And so I always try to fit the biggest possible radiator that my case will take. I have a couple FD Design S cases on the way, which will take even up to a 420mm radiator. Looking...

    Why are 4K TV's cheap but 4K Projectors expensive?

    I can't seem to find an answer as to why 4K television are for the most part pretty damn cheap now, at least for lower end models, while 4K projectors are so expensive. To me, a 4K projector on a 150" screen makes so much more sense than a 4K image on a 50" screen... but the market isn't...

    HD3D on 290x Crimson Driver and Cyberlink PowerDVD 14

    I can't for the life of me get Cyberlink PowerDVD 14 to work with a 290x. It works with my NVidia GPU laptop without any setup whatsoever, everything just automatically works. But with my 290x, it just won't recognize my Optoma HD131Xe projector in the sig as a 3D device, and setting it...

    Windows 10: Halfway Through January 2016; worth it yet?

    So I have had zero motivation to "upgrade" to Windows 10, considering that if anything I consider the interface a bit of a downgrade from Windows 7. However, there was much hype about Windows 10 improving AMD performance. Now that we're in 2016, have we seen any games where there is a...

    Cheap single purpose tablets

    GTX 980Ti vs R9 Fury X in Small Form Factor Application

    VRAM question about 295x2 on GTA5

    From my understanding, the 295x2, like any crossfire setup, only has as much VRAM as a single GPU. GTA5 though believes it has 8GB of VRAM, which I don't think can be right, at least not until we get DX12, right? And along those lines, I've been trying to find a guide for good settings...
