    Mirror's Edge and Battlefield Bad Company 2 being removed from sale

    Very sad news, I greatly enjoyed Bad Company 1 on Xbox 360 and on Playstation 3, and then Bad Company 2 on both and then on PC. In fact I contemplated getting an Xbox the last few years to play BC1 again but it never happened. Bad Company 1 being lost to time on console is a shame, I doubt...

    ASUS TUF Z790 DDR5

    I was gonna go with the TUF DDR5 but saw the Z790-H is newer and only $20 more, seemed to be slightly better so why not, wanted a nice motherboard. Hopefully won't regret not doing the TUF, idk how accurate their marketing about more reliable components, ESD guards etc... maybe some of that is...

    EVGA B-Stock 3060 $280

    I bit, with a code it came to $271 pretax, I needed an Nvidia GPU for a new gaming build where I am just targeting 1080p 75hz. 4070 Ti complete overkill even if new tech is nice, will ride out with 3060 till something better is needed or I upgrade monitor to a more demanding performance target.

    Best Reviewed A-MVA Monitor Thread: Read the 1st Post

    Well almost 8 years since I got my EW2740L I'm trying to use it as a gaming monitor, overclocked it to 75z and seems stable as far as I can tell and I am able to run games on adaptive vsync at 75fps feels good. Responsive enough for me so far for some Rainbow Six Siege and BF2042. Anyone else...

    Battlefield 2042

    Completely agree. Best part of BC2/BF3/BF4 for me was the community I played with that ran their own servers. Utter disgrace that feature left, takes away that community feel that keeps you coming back. People were invested in curating their communities and that enriched the game and made...

    Oh I think I get it, yeah I see that's kind of worse than the raised reflective (in the inner part) bezels of the EW2740L, huh. So what's the best alternative to the BenQs again, maybe with something other than HDMI as an input option? Not that I'm not liking my EW2740L, great for consuming...

    Recently got a EW2740L, going to send it back for the EW2750ZL because it's cheaper for some reason. I finally see what you mean by the garbage bezels, they literally reflect the light from the screen, and yeah it's not cool. I don't really see how the frameless casing is worse though. I assume...

    Need help choosing VA monitor.

    Thanks for the heads up they updated the EW2740L that I just got a couple weeks ago... Good thing it was from Amazon, off it goes, I suspect stuck pixels anyways, and the new one is 60$ less than I what I bought this one for!

    Leaked Slides Reveal Performance Of Intel's Skylake CPUs

    My thoughts exactly. I'm dying to upgrade my Surface Pro 3 to the Pro 4 with at least 256 GB storage and 8 GB RAM, 128/4 aint enough.

    Acer Predator XR341CK 34" 144Hz Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync

    Jesus, now I don't know if I should wait past early July to see if it is indeed 100hz. How much harder would it be to drive than the XB270HU with a 980 Ti. The cost will probably be too prohibitive for me though D:

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    Keep up the feedback for those who jumped in early, I wanna see how things evolve by in a month or two because it seems like an ace panel on paper, with no competition even announced yet!

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    Is it relatively safe to buy this thing yet? Seems QA is really problematic... I can wait until about early July probably, pricing seems to be going down slowly to more like 700$ too! I do need a better gfx card with it though, my GTX 670 and Samsung S23700AD combo is almost 3 years old.

    Official Acer [XB270HU] 27" 1440p 144Hz G-Sync IPS ULMB Monitor Thread

    800$, damn well it is in line with market offerings, that's a lot of $$$ considering I'd also need a GPU upgrade from my GTX 670. Don't think I can swing the $$ for the summer gaming season meh :( Maybe by the years end, ugh. Gotta make some cash quick haha

    Acer B326HK - 4k 32" monitor sub 1k euro

    This seems like a winner if they can get Gsync in it, Acer seems to be caring more about their display stuff recently.

    Is panel quality dropping overal ?

    I have the 750D, still don't know anything else worth replacing it with besides the ROG swift (its QA problems notwithstanding). Such a good monitor, glossy, good colors, TN pros for gaming purposes. Im forcing myself to get a Gsync monitor next, more models just need to happen.

    Yooo so the EW2740L is only 280~$ on Amazon, seems like a lot less than I remember. How it does it compare to the "best" 24" BenQ VW2430WH Anything new out there that changes the above statements? Also how do both scale non 1080p content? Lastly, is this good for auto/easy calibration of...

    Eizo announces FORIS FS2434 I wonder if there are PQ related improvements, or if it's just a respin of an older model. Can't wait to find out! :D

    Hmmm so the EW2740L is super solid (although I so wish they would come out with a Gsync variant of it, even still at 60hz max. What are the better smaller options, I'm on a 23" now so something around that size would be cool.
