    No reasonable ways to go from Apple Cinema (mini displayport) -> PC?

    HDMI is the same as DVI in terms of video bandwidth.

    Asus Maximus Gene-Z vs Asus P8Z68-V Pro

    Looking for opinions on which of these two to buy for my 2700k and I will be overclocking with my H70. They are both priced the same (give it take $20). I will be using this is a mid tower case so mATX isn't a requirement. Ultimately, they both satisfy my I/O needs (Sata 6gb/USB 3.0)...

    I also read Skyrim doesn't support crossfire but you might want to confirm that.

    I'm running a i7 970, 6gb ram, and one 4890. What would be a good upgrade (under $300) for BF3? I'm running 1920x1200. Should I go dual cards or single? Thanks

    NEC 2490WUXi - The Full Story

    I thought by having hardware LUT, all input sources will output accurately on the display. If the input source requires a profile, how would a PS3 or XBOX know what the adjustments are if they don't load a iccprofile?

    First time RAID 0 WD6401AALS

    Hey guys, I just bought a 2nd WD6401AALS Black to try RAID 0 for my first time. I read many people suggesting to short stroke them for maximum performance. What size is optimal to get the best performance from the WD6401AALS Blacks? I will be running Win7 Pro 64bit and about four games. I...

    Calibrated NEC 2490WUXi results

    I just bought a ColorMunki along with Spectraview II 1.1.03 and performed my very first calibration of my 2490wuxi. Here are my results: Is my white point Delta E high? How is my black level? Should I measure my ambient light and turn on autoluminence?

    Upgrade options for highest MW2 fps

    I've been beating this to death for the past couple of days. Aside from building a new rig, I want to go budget as possible to play MW2 at highest details at 1920x1200. I'm thinking I will need a 4890 but then my cpu will be a bottleneck. I found a Q8400 for cheap and was thinking of...

    Upgrade to E8400 or Q6600 worth it?

    I'm in the EXACT same boat. Only difference is I have 4gb RAM but my E2160 is running at 3.46ghz. Main use are gaming, internet, and I run dual lcds. Assuming I run either the E8400 or Q6600 at about 3.4ghz, would it still be worth the upgrade? I found those cpu's going for about $150 locally.

    my refurbed 2490wuxi is set up

    What are your refresh rates at native resolution? I just tried hooking up my MBP and running OSX setting the NEC at 60Hz. I'm still only at 59.9Hz. I know its not much of a difference but I would like to know if its only my monitor or is 59.9Hz rounded to 60Hz.

    my refurbed 2490wuxi is set up

    Okay, this is a bit strange. I have my power management set to put the monitor to sleep but it doesn't go to sleep. Just a black screen. Is this normal? And for those of you not running Win7, what is your refresh rate on your monitor? 59.9Hz?

    my refurbed 2490wuxi is set up

    Well 60hz is actually listed, I select it, hit apply all is fine. I go back to double check to see if it actually changed it to 60hz, and to my surprise it is still 59hz. I did some googling, apparently this is a Win7 issue.

    my refurbed 2490wuxi is set up

    Mine is also quite loose and pivets quite a bit when I push the buttons down. So what did you guys receive? Did any of you receive a DVI cable or manual? Does your screen have any evidence of cleaning residue? I also have no dead pixels from using online pixel check images. Can't get...

    My screen appears to have residual from a swipe of some screen cleaner but other than that it looks brand new. There are a few deep small scratches on one of the leg base.

    What exactly do I need to buy to use the internal calibration on the LCD2490WUXi?

    Spectraview and a colorimeter. From what I gather, Eye-one Display is the recommended colorimeter (aka i1d2).
