    LG 34" 21:9 curved display differences

    Hi All, Does anyone know the difference between these monitors? 34UC87 (saw on LG India site) 34UC87M (saw in press releases) 34UC87-B (saw on LG Germany/UK) 34UC87M-B (saw on LG America) Seems the 34UC87M-B is the US model. It's advertised on the commercial side of LG. I'm guessing...

    Tri-Monitor Setup Help

    Ahh, so you didn't get past the first part yet. I actually had a similar setup as you before, 6800GT AGP and a FX5700 PCI. Both used the same unified driver architecture, so it was pretty easy. Once I installed the FX5700, it recognized right away. I guess nVidia changed it around and...

    Tri-Monitor Setup Help

    It should be just as easy as setting up a dual monitor. I'm assuming the 2nd videocard is already installed correctly and shows up in your device manager. If so, there are two ways to enable the 3rd monitor. The easiest way is to right click your desktop go to Properties>Settings. You...

    A couple questions about a triple monitor setup.

    I have that setup and had the old versions of the 2407FPW and 2007FP. No, it's not the same height. You are also wrong about the 2405FPW and 2005FP. They aren't the same height either. The 2005 is actually widescreen, so the difference in height is even more. The 2001FP was the non-ws...

    My SuperPi just got PWNED :(

    You jump on the Core Solo bandwagon and when the Core 2 Duo train comes along, you make a leap of faith. :D My e6300 does SuperPi 32m in a little over 16 mins, granted it's o/c'd. :)

    Dual monitor rubbish

    Yes. There are 5 display modes, single, clone, horizontal span, vertical span and dualview. Horizontal span would be the mode that spans the taskbar across all screens and combines all your monitors to make it one.

    Dual monitor rubbish

    Ultramon is NOT the only way to do it. A lot of people seem to be misinformed or have ATI cards. nView can pretty much do anything Ultramon can do and nView is FREE (that is if you have an Nvidia card).

    Budget Dual Core showdown (Pentium D 805 vs X2 3800)

    At stock speeds (2.6ghz): 1080p QuickTime = a bit choppy, some dropped frames 1080p WMVHD = smooth Overclocked speeds of 3.6ghz or above 1080p QuickTime = smooth 1080p WMVHD = buttery smooth The idle seems way too high, especially with the 9500. You should be getting anywhere from...

    4.1 ghz with Pentium D 805!

    Well it will vary with each processor. He used a lot of voltage to get to 3.8ghz and a shitload to get to 4ghz. Some people can get to 3.8 without any voltage increases. His testing methods are also a bit vague. By comparison, my overclocks and stock obtained much lower numbers than...

    1907's in potrait mode would not line up with the 2407/2405. 1907 width is 16.15" (or height in potrait mode). 1707 would lineup better. 1707 width is 14.64" (or height in portrait mode) Height of the 2405 top to bottom bezel is 14.5".

    Well yes and no. The Asus board had independent frequency selections for the FSB and Memory. I just left the memory at default speeds. For other boards I would have most likely used a divider. I haven't tried overclocking the ram yet. Yes, the graph is excel. See prior post for updated...

    My thoughts exactly. I'm going to keep my Prestonia Xeon for a while longer as my main work station, until AMD or Intel releases something significantly faster than a 2-3 year old chip. You know what, I have another system in the other room that is a Northwood 3ghz/P4P800 Deluxe :). Time...
