    Looking at some laptops for my daughter for college. She likes to game but its not a top priority at all. I found the Surface Laptop 4's are actually perfect all around but they are absolutely garbage for anything but Minecraft or similar so I guess they are out. I did get her a 2020 Dell...

    Just ordered an Oculus Rift...first thing to do?

    Got it yesterdays and all I can say is wow... better than I thought it would be. Played around with a few free games and videos and most were really good. That free game, Jacks Tale or whatever it's called is the future style of gaming, or at least going to be a big part of it. While...

    New HP Omen 32" QHD Monitor - 2560x1440, 5ms, 75Hz freesync, LFC, VA panel = $343 shipped

    Putting size aside how does the 32 Omen compare to the Dell U2717D? I just got the Dell but the size is smaller than I thought it would be upgrading from my 22" Specs compare? Don't care about gaming

    HP Omen 32" QHD Monitor - 2560x1440, 5ms, 75Hz freesync, VA panel

    How would this compare to the Dell U2717D I just bought? I love the monitor but the size is not as big as I thought it would be moving up from a 22". I don't game anymore, more concerned with color accuracy and brightness. How would these compare?

    Don't game much anymore...Recommend a 4k display?

    Thanks, i think 40" would be just pushing it though lol. If i get a 27 or 32" that will be quite the increase for me. But after a year or two I could see going larger. Its all about slowly transitioning instead of one huge leap. Thats how I went from a 50"-55"-60"-65" and looking at 72"+...
