    Just got my 34GK950F-B

    I received my used EVGA 1080Ti this weekend and once I got everything configured right, GSync at 144Hz has worked lovely. This monitor is just SOOOOO satisfying with the right hardware backing it up!

    Just got my 34GK950F-B

    Update: I'm a dope. The DisplayPort cable wasn't inserted all the way. Using now at 120Hz...per the TFT Central review, that's the max for DP1.2.

    Just got my 34GK950F-B

    I just got one yesterday and paired with my 980Ti. I neglected to do my homework though...apparently 980Ti supports DisplayPort 1.2 only. I couldn't get the display to recognize the connection at all! I switched to HDMI and luckily that works up to 85Hz, but that's well short of the 144Hz I...

    When do you retire a PSU?

    I have an Antec TruPower 430W from like 2004 that still runs, but: No SATA connectors Only 4-pin EPS12V connector, not 4+4 No VGA cable of any kind Sub-70% efficiency I suppose it could work with an older PC, but I have no need for something that old.

    Question on speaker "break-in"

    A theory running around about speakers (and some other types of products like TVs) is that they don't perform optimally out of the box. There's a period of time during initial use when the components adjust themselves slightly and become...ugh...better synced with each other? Their physical...

    FS: Lapped E6400

    My Heat: This is a week 24 E6400. I've lapped it to 1500 grit. I've had it for about 1 month running at 2.8GHz (350x8) at approximately 1.425V. The stock HSF is included, unused. Asking $195, shipping included. No trades, no negociations...

    My Heat: I have a Sony 19" G410 for sale. The monitor is slightly defective because the display has become slightly blurred and green-tinted. Again, the defects are very slight and if you're simply looking for a cheap, large display, you'll be happy...

    OMG, I hate Intel my Core 2 ONLY does 3.6Ghz

    If your IP address wasn't banned before, I'm sure it will be soon. I don't think Kyle appreciates you registering another name to argue in the same thread that got you banned in the first place.

    nVidia users: Post your driver settings

    Please post what setting you use in your control panel. If you use different settings for benching (3Dmark), please post them as well. I'm trying to get a sense of what I should have set. I don't know what half of the settings do, like "mipmap optimization."

    Just bought Dell 2407! Details Inside!

    Others have had similarly bad picture quality using X360 over component. As for color, it looks fine on my 2407 but you might try turning up digital vibrance if you use an nVidia card.
