    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Bad news for those who ordered from PCNation (myself included)... just read from ASUS's official forum: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?50651-The-real-reason-you-cant-get-a-ROG-Swift-in-NA!&p=428694&viewfull=1#post428694

    ASUS Announces ROG SWIFT PG278Q Premium Gaming Monitor

    Frankly, I don't understand why ASUS didn't take pre-orders directly and ship from Taiwan or China. That's how Apple and Lenovo does it: take orders online, then ship them individually via UPS or FedEx.

    gsync will make my 144hz monitor a 60hz monitor playing at 60fps?

    G-Sync at 60Hz is not the same as normal 60Hz monitor. Every one of those 60 frames (per second) in G-Sync are displayed when the GPU renders them. Compared to normal 60Hz monitor displaying each frame between 0 to 1/60th of a second later, or with image tear. G-Sync will be "butter" smooth...

    adobepro ... thanks for sharing your experience. It reminds me of my own ordeal with HP LP2475w (also LG IPS panel), which I had to exchange 5 TIMES! Most of them had pink / green tinting from right to left side of the screen. Sounds like LG minimized the tinting issue to just the bottom...

    Spawn on squad mates driving a tank or destroyer. Always work together with other players. A couple of tanks with chopper support, moving together as a group, goes a long way on all maps, not just AK.

    Crucial m4 256gb. $159.99 + FS at Amazon.com

    Amazon started charging CA sales tax on 9/15/2012. Here is an interesting tidbit on Amazon's CA sales tax. The two CA cities where Amazon locates their warehouses are kicking back to Amazon a major portion (40% or more) of the sales tax collected.

    Should I buy a 570 GTX?

    I have a GTX 570 and a GTX 670. Temperature wise, the 6xx series is noticeably cooler than 5xx, so I'd choose a GTX 660 non-Ti over GTX 570, if the price difference is less than $100.

    HOT $161 HP elitebook 17.3" LED Notebook - i7 8GB ddr3/750GB/nvidia quadro 3000m

    Admit they made a pricing error, instead of claiming: 1) item out of stock 2) CC authorization failed They send me two separate emails claiming 1) and 2). Both are lies.

    HOT $161 HP elitebook 17.3" LED Notebook - i7 8GB ddr3/750GB/nvidia quadro 3000m

    Yup. They are lying. They have the laptops, even now. Just search for B2A84UTABA at TheNerds. Perhaps they can't legally say that they made a pricing mistake in Florida without serious consequences, so they lied. Kudos to Adorama's handling of this. TheNerds, on the other hand, it will...

    HOT $161 HP elitebook 17.3" LED Notebook - i7 8GB ddr3/750GB/nvidia quadro 3000m

    Not true. The credit card agreement clearly specify the way finance charges (interest) are calculated. You shouldn't have signed up for the credit account that doesn't work in your favor.

    HOT $161 HP elitebook 17.3" LED Notebook - i7 8GB ddr3/750GB/nvidia quadro 3000m

    Here is my theory. TheNerds has an automated program that periodically adjust its pricing to match its competitors. When Adorama made a pricing mistake, a few hours later TheNerds blindly followed. I believe TheNerds actually had these laptops in stock, as shown by each order decreasing the...

    Only if the interest is calculated from "adjusted balance", which is not the most common. If you carry a balance already and the interest is calculated from "average daily balance" or "previous balance", then you will be paying interest even if they refund you within 30 days.

    HP LP2475w (Possible new IPS)

    The green-pink tint will NOT improve with time. If you're sensitive to it (as I am), then you best get rid of that monitor. Otherwise it will irk you everyday, as you notice the tint.

    HP LP2475w (Possible new IPS)

    There is no fix for it. Continue to exchange monitors until you're satisfied, or choose another brand / model.

    More GTX 680 news

    $300? Yup... in about 10 months, when GK110 comes out. And GK104 (aka GTX 680) will be rebranded GTX 760, while GK110 will be GTX 780 & 770. But by then, you will want to buy a GTX 770 instead of GTX 760. And GTX 770 won't be $300, probably $450. Why must NVIDIA toy with us like this!?

    Don't kid yourself. Cruicial M4 is much more reliable than OCZ drives. I just had a Vertex 2 die on me this week. Considering the hassle, lost work time, and shipping costs for RMA, I'd gladly pay the extra $20 for Crucial M4.
