    Nokia Multigraph 445Xpro monitor (big, awesome, free!) FF

    I've got a Nokia Multigraph 445Xpro up for grabs in Jersey City, NJ -- if you can come get it, it's yours. Nice monitor, heavy, it'll do 1920x1440 at a nice refresh rate (of course, see the most recent 100 or so pages of the Display forum post about the fw-900 post for details on that) -- it's...

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    Well, it's finally happened, I have gone digital. Maybe my loss is someone's gain, though. What's the best way to move an old CRT on to its next life? My old monitor is a Nokia Multigraph 445xpro that happily does 1920x1440 if it gets an analog input. Do people just throw them on Craigslist...

    Oh, welcome to the club! Read back through the last several pages and you'll lear more than you ever wanted to know about pixel clocks, especially since you never WANTED to learn that the answer to your question is only "well, sort of." Currently no one makes a high-clock adapter/converter, so...

    Video card brand in your first PC?

    First family computer was a PCjr, which had better-than-CGA graphics. After that I remember there being a Trident card of some sort. The first video card I spent my own money on (with a very important rebate coming in the mail) was a Matrox M3D card. Cheap and didn't do that well compared to...

    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    Asked and answered -- "The currently available Ideacentre Y700, part number 90DG0021US, uses a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB which does not have a VGA port. It has DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI ports." Ah well.

    So here's an interesting bit that I just noticed -- the Lenovo Y700 desktop has an nvidia 1070 in it AND it has VGA out -- does anyone know more about this? Is it legitimate? Could I do 1920x1440@80 again?

    Desktop system monitor for memory/cpu/network/etc? USB?

    I've currently got a Logitech G15 keyboard and it has a little screen that I'm using in conjunction with LCDSirReal to show CPU, memory, network bandwidth, audio volume, time, etc.etc.etc. I like it. But eventually the keyboard will need to be replaced. Does anyone make a small desktop unit...

    HP Envy 750se Desktop. Nvidia 980 ti, i7-6700, 16gb ram. $1,126 after coupon

    Worked for me, had to hit apply on the coupon code twice -- More computer than I'd recently planned out and at a much lower price. I went with more memory and the 6700k and a GTX 970 rather than the 980 -- should be a nice upgrade, thanks, zamardii!

    Logitech G15 users..what apps do you run on your LCD?

    So as a follow-up to this -- I've been happily running my G15 for about 7 years with LCD Sirreal -- I have a windows phone, so the new logitech "use yer phone!" keyboard wouldn't work for me -- are there any standalone small screens that can go on my desk and show me memory/cpu/network usage if...

    Strong Execution Drives Microsoft First Quarter Results

    And phone sales are down 54% -- but really, I've been using my "flagship" Windows Phone for more than two years now and they really haven't put out anything better since then, so it's not like they're creating demand. And I'm actually looking forward to the new ones and suspect many other...
