    High resolution monitor for a Macbook Air

    Hi guys, I'm in search for a decent monitor to use as an external display for my Macbook Air. After comparing the 27" Thunderbolt display next to the 27" 5K display at Best Buy today, I noticed a considerable difference in crispness and clarity with the 5K display. With that being said, I'm...

    VGA Output only laptop, to HDTV?

    It would be about the same price, but it would also be a lot more clutter than what i'm looking for. I understand it isn't as future proof, but for this application it's the most appropriate option, being that a clean simple install is worth more than the idea of future proof. Having to plug...

    VGA Output only laptop, to HDTV?

    I do agree with what your saying, and I thought of it aswell. The main concern was price. This application is for my parents, and honestly they aren't hitech people who even care for the extent that i'm already taking this to by setting up a wall mount. Budget was key, and the added cost of...

    VGA Output only laptop, to HDTV?

    From the research I had done prior, it seemed as if the converter box was the only option, and you guys confirmed that. Thanks a lot. I ordered the VGA to HDMI converter from monoprice because I was ordering the cables and rest of the crap from them anyways. My gameplan is to route the vga...

    VGA Output only laptop, to HDTV?

    Hey guys, i'm looking to for easiest and/or cheapest method to output video from a laptop that only supports VGA output to an HDTV which accepts RCA, Component, or HDMI as sources of input. To clarify: Laptop Output: VGA HDTV Input: RCA (red, yellow, white), Component(Red, green, blue), and...

    HDMI Out, no signal?

    I just installed ubuntu on the laptop to see if it was a windows/driver problem, and the exact same problem is happening. When the TV is off, the laptop(w/ ubuntu aswell) detects the TV perfectly fine, to the point where it even displays the tv's correct name and model number. The second I turn...

    HDMI Out, no signal?

    Hey guys, I have a Samsung laptop which i'm having issues on with the HDMI out. I've connected the laptop via HDMI onto my 32" Olevia TV and am constantly receiving a "No Signal" error. To narrow down the problem to this laptop specifically i've also tried 2 other laptops on this same TV which...

    Looking for a new game?

    Hey guys, i've been playing counter-strike: source since the day of it's release, and the original counter-strike since 1.3. I haven't ever since picked up another game which caught my interest as counter-strike did. After years of playing it, and actually gaining interest for video games once...

    Just bought a 6770 video card and i'm not interested in the game. The card code has not been scratched off yet so I can either scratch it off and tell you the code, or mail you the card. 18$ or willing to trade for another steam game Heat

    HD 6770 vs GTX 550 ti vs HD 5670

    My concern with the 5760 is that although it appears to be an adequate card for right now, especially at the resolution I play at (1440x900), i'm not sure if it will be future-proof. It seems to max out at around 33fps on current games, I can only expect that number to go down on upcoming games...

    HD 6770 vs GTX 550 ti vs HD 5670

    With shipping the 6790 bumps up to 122$. Between the 550 ti and the HD 6770, i'm realizing the 550 ti is a more powerful card but at the cost of consuming a ton of power. In this case I feel that saving a bit on electric bills is worth losing a bit of performance. Opinions? That leaves the...

    $300 Basic Build

    Agh, I wish I was aware of the Biostar before I purchased everything. It is a very tempting option to follow through with the exchange, and i've been debating it all day. I really don't want to take apart the system, and rebuild it. Though it does offer a significant benefit to me at only 5$...

    Weird ghosting on VGA only?

    I've been aware of this problem for some time and always disregarded it because it wasn't an issue for me to use DVI. I see now that it isn't a problem I can fix, and am ordering a video card. Thanks for the help

    HD 6770 vs GTX 550 ti vs HD 5670

    So, i just upgraded my system after quite some time. The new system specs are in the sig below. As you can see i'm stuck on onboard video at the moment, and before I place the order on my video card i'd like some help narrowing down which is the best fit for me. I haven't touched my desktop in...

    Weird ghosting on VGA only?

    After googling the term "VGA Ghosting" it is exactly what is happening to my display. I am using known, good, vga cables with no luck. Could it be an issue with the display itself?

    Weird ghosting on VGA only?

    Considering the screenshot is displaying the problem exactly as i'm seeing it on my screen your logic leaves me to believe there is a problem elsewhere? I can honestly say that i've had atleast 3 different computers on this monitor attempting to use it via VGA with this same problem..

    Weird ghosting on VGA only?

    I am looking into that now, Thank you. Though, look at the shadow effect coming off the icons. Aswell as the fuzzy verticle stripe on the left side of the screen. It's effecting a bit more than just the text.

    Best budget gaming for $5-600 (already have some stuff)?

    I'm sure the yonkers microcenter is accecible to you if you have a car, or maybe even the westbury one. Worth the drive considering the deals they have.

    Weird ghosting on VGA only?

    At this moment, i'm in a position where I only have onboard VGA. I'm somewhat avoiding purchasing a video card currently, and was hoping I could fix this VGA problem and hold off on the video card purchase. I'm pretty sure the screen shot captured the effect quite well, no?

    $300 Basic Build

    So I just played some counter-strike:source, and to my surprise on maxed out settings I was averaging 54fps:eek:. My old setup with a 6600gt would only do about 33fps. The quality isn't great, and it definitely has more than a few artifacts but it's completely playable. I wish my monitor worked...

    Weird ghosting on VGA only?

    Hey, so I have an acer p191w monitor which I purchased quite some time ago. When I purchased it, I only used it through DVI, which worked fine. Many months later I tried to use it via VGA only to find out there is a weird blurry/ghosting effect. Through the years i've used many different...

    A few hours ago I took a trip to Micro center and picked up the motherboard/cpu combo, along with their ram. I do understand the drawbacks as I won't be able to upgrade in the future now that i'm occupying both ram ports :( But honestly, I was tempted to have a running system now rather than...

    $300 Basic Build

    Gotcha, I think i'll save money on the hard drive and spend a little more on the video card. I'm leaning towards purchasing 6770 after researching the benefits over the 6670. I understand it consumes almost double the power. Though, I used a PSU calculator to estimate the power consumption and...

    $300 Basic Build

    Sounds like the 500gb would be a better fit for me, though one question. Being that i'm using a underpowered PSU as it is, would going with the less power hungry green drive be a wise decision?
