  1. Hi all. I am no pro. Half of my PC usage is on Office/browsing, the rest divides between movies (with HDR where applicable) and casual PS4 Pro and PC adventure/RPG/action RPG/platform gaming with HDR where applicable too. 1440p IPS panel is a must and I have no use or need for a 4K or high refresh rate monitor, 75Hz overclocking in worst case scenario if needed. I have tested 144Hz monitors and saw no difference with the games I play so... My aim is better build quality, better panel and overall picture quality and color reproduction. I play my games with maxed out graphics and 1440p 60/75Hz is more than enough for me as stated above. BenQ is pre-calibrated and Technicolor approved, Dell on the other hand is one of the 11 monitors that has the -not shitty 400 or 500- HDR600 certification and wider color gamut (please let's not start the true or fake HDR argument, we are talking about 500€ monitors here and HDR600 is considered somehow respectable HDR entry level). Both have received very good to excellent reviews and their pricing and warranty are similar in my region. BenQ has better ergonomics and port selection but it's not something I care about, better final picture quality is what I am after. https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/comparison/13b69a0f1 https://www.benq.com/en/monitor/designer/pd2710qc.html https://www.dell.com/ed/p/dell-s2719dc-monitor/pd Futhermore, if smn has worked with any of these two monitors, please share your experience.

    what monitor to get help

    depends of the games you play and the picture quality you are after.

    DP over USB C and Freesync?

    Since my GPU is fairly powerful, I was thinking of just overclocking the monitor at 75Hz with Vsync on and play all the games with 75fps @ 1440p no matter the connection type. No need for Freesync or anything in that case or at least not until 2080 starts falling below 60fps with games in 1440p right?

    DP over USB C and Freesync?

    Well, the monitor comes with a USB C cable, I already have an HDMI 2.0 cable but the most convenient will be the one that actually works best

    DP over USB C and Freesync?

    Hi all. I have a Palit 2080 Super Jetstream. I wish to buy a Dell S2719DC monitor which only has a USB Type-C input supporting DP-over-USB-C alt mode and an HDMI 2.0 connections. I wish to overclock the monitor to 75Hz which is doable according to other owners in Reddit and use the Freesync option if it is of course compatible with the newest drivers. Which connection do I use? Option 1: Connect them via their USB C ports. Option 2: Connect them via a Display Port (RTX) to USB C cable (monitor). Option 3: Use the HDMI 2.0. Thanks in advance!

    VA pixel issue?

    Nah, all settings were good, I found out what was wrong. "As is common on many VA panels (particularly Samsung SVA panels), the subpixels are a bit squat. That is to say they are relatively wide but short, with relatively large gaps between rows. This has a slight impact on text clarity, making some text appear somewhat softer than it might on models with other panel types but similar pixel density. This can be alleviated to an extent by running through ClearType but not cured. Although it’s not something we found problematic when reviewing the model and many users would find the text clarity just fine, it does have an impact and is something that some users would find bothersome." Slight impact my ass. Sure, the fact that I come from a 4K is an issue, but this is total hardware shit unfortunately. Will try an IPS 1440p panel just in case I won't have that kind of problem.

    VA pixel issue?

    Hi. I am an owner of an Asus MX27UQ 4K monitor and I decided to move to a 1440p 144Hz VA panel the Samsung C27HG70. Apart from the obvious ppi reduction, I was surprised by how shit the text looked on this panel. It seemed like I was reading a text in a lower resolution panel without any AA going on...and generally even from a 80-90cm long distance, I felt like I could distinguish the pixels... Is this a VA panel issue? Do IPS 1440p panels suffer from the same issue as well?

    21:9 vs 16:9 2019 edition

    Valid points all and thank you for your answers. The specific choice for the poll was made for 2 main reasons. My available space which doesn't support a proper 34" ultra wide in order to up the res and the Hz and ofc the prices in my country. But mostly it's the lack of space. And since I am not a competitive gamer (platforms, adventures, RPGs) I was wondering if the 21:9 experience, even in a 1080p 29" screen is enough to surpass an excellent 1440p 144Ηz panel. Plus, the lower res on the ultra wide, could enable my rig to last a lot longer gamewise, even with the sacrifice of 75Ηz.

    21:9 vs 16:9 2019 edition

    I see. Well, I ordered 2 monitors, one of each from amazon for testing. They do give a 30 day return/full refund period if I am not satisfied with either or both of them so let's see what's gonna be.

    21:9 vs 16:9 2019 edition

    So, I know this has been debated in the past years a lot, but as things are now, for non competitive gaming like RPGs, which is your preference?

    Torn between these two

    So quick help please. I have (was practically given) an ASUS MX27UQ 4K 60Hz monitor, which is a great monitor, color and resolution wise, but it crashes my RTX 2080 below the 50 fps region. I play normal paced games like Witcher, Darksiders, Mass Effect, stuff like that, nothing like CS:GO, Overwatch or Fortnite... So I want to sell it and move to a 1440p 27" monitor. Samsung C27HG70 ticks all the boxes but I have no clue if the VA quantum dot panel is as good as a similarly priced IPS one, let's say the ASUS MG279Q. Samsung is nVidia Freesync compatible I dunno about the Asus. My prios are picture quality hands down > high refresh rates > all the rest. In paper the Samsung monitor > the Asus one, but it still is VA vs IPS and I don't know if I am losing in picture quality moving to quantum dot VA from an excellent IPS. Thank you in advance for any answer/help.

    Dedicated GPU along with Integrated one

    I see. So the other question, shall I have it enabled in BIOS just in case for troubleshooting or a possible second screen or disable it for power/thermal reasons even though I won't be using it?
  13. Hi! I was wondering if there is any way to use the UHD630 of my 9700K alongside with rtx 2080 while gaming. I think DX12 has a function? Or is there any app that I could use to get some small extra performance by making these two work together?

    9700K problematic boost

    Windows error after all. A clean install solved everything.

    9700K problematic boost

    Turbo boost in enabled, but it boosts only to 3.9GHz while speedwhatever technology from Intel is enabled. And if I disable them, it goes to 4.6 all the time no matter what. I did disable power limits according to a guide I found but still, while speedstep or speed shift were enabled nothing happened... I am thinking of BIOS issue tbh, I have reinstalled it, default settings, but still nothing...
