    High refresh 1440p recommendations

    That would be a downgrade from the PG279q I am currently running.

    High refresh 1440p recommendations

    Hello. I currently run an Asus PG279Q and have enjoyed it for the most part, however, it's about time I add another monitor to my setup as I am doing a complete room redecoration. New desk. New chair. New paint. New decorations. And I'd love to add a new monitor to that. I would just go and buy another PG279Q, but the uprise of new technologies has piqued my interest. Are there any good high refresh, 1440p monitors that have a high color depth? The PG279Q does the resolution, framerate very well, and the color pretty well. However, with HDR now arriving on monitors, how is the technology faring? Are monitors such as the samsung C32HG70 worth it at this point?

    Closed over-ears for gaming and music?

    Do they have a pair of headphones similar to this with a detachable cable? That's usually what breaks first and is definitely a deal breaker for me.

    Also if I were to get these, would I want the 32 Ohm, 80 ohm, or 250 ohm? Without an amp.

    I've been eyeing the fulla schiit 2 for a long time, though I've never had any justification to actually purchase one. My price point would be around 100

    Closed over-ears for gaming and music?

    I currently have a pair of Sennheiser HD439's, they're pretty good, I got them specifically for the removable cable because I had a pair of HD 429's that I really liked prior. I'm looking for newer, better headphones. I don't need a microphone, just a closed design (roommates). Sennheiser has recently released new lines of headphones and I really don't like how they look, so I'm not sure where to look for a pair of nice, closed headphones. I don't need a microphone. Price point is up to $200 Oh also I'd like them to be tight enough so that I can move my head around without them slipping, that'd be great. Not so tight that my glasses are drilled into my skull.

    Quick color gamut question

    In my quest for a new laptop I've been picky regarding the colors of the screen. Currently I use an asus PG279Q as my main display for my PC. From my understanding, this often ships near 100% sRGB coverage out of the box, not perfectly, but very close. Regarding laptop screens I've been sent to a site that details almost all the display info for a few panels. My question is: Panels that say they cover 72% of NTSC are around 100% sRGB, correct? As I understand it, sRGB=~72% NTSC. Thanks

    Looking for laptop <$2000

    I have, I don't think a 1050 will be a comfortable GPU for me. This does look promising, though I'm not sure I would need more than a 1060, and I'm struggling to come up with reviews and information regarding the 4K touch display option offered, the color reproduction is important to me.

    Looking for laptop <$2000

    Just gonna bump, still leaning towards a razer blade due to the 4k ips glass touchscreen display.

    Looking for laptop <$2000

    I've never had a laptop that is thin or light, so I'm not sure. I just really want something that's small and lightweight, easy to slip into my backpack and then when I travel easy to slip into a lighter backpack. (That's why the blade appealed to me) Not sure what Max Q is, I've never followed laptops because I didn't believe in them until I started having to wait 5 minutes at the start of CS calsses for mine to turn on and load up. Edit: As much as I do hate apple, I do admire the way they design their laptops and the glass screens and such, they do give impressions of premium
  13. I've been having trouble daily driving my current laptop to class and such, so I'm looking for a thin and light gaming laptop to replace it. I travel frequently and have an internship that will require me to do a lot of traveling this summer, I'm looking for a laptop that is pretty thin and well built, that I can game on. I was looking at the Razer Blade 4k model, I hear the screen is great, and touchscreen is a plus. I may be in the minority when I say I do prefer a glossy finish for laptops for that "premium" feel (and ease of cleaning...). I've heard concerns over the Razer Blade's temps and reliability, however. Are there any laptops like it that have fewer issues? Games I would likely be playing on it: Mostly WoW; some Total War, Civ, and Battlefield 1.

    Case recommendation

    Thanks for this recommendation, sadly my GPU is too big. I may look into downsizing my mobo but that just sounds like a big pain in the butt as a uni student to sell my old one.

    Case recommendation

    It looks nice but it is essentially the same shape as my current case and I'm looking to get one that's more transportable, and a change to the style would be welcome after a year or two with the same thing sitting on my desk.
