    Worst Online Shopping Mistake

    Not telling. LOL

    Worst Online Shopping Mistake

    I was drunk shopping on Amazon and ordered a "toy". When it came in the mail it was at least three times larger than I thought it was. At least my wife and I got a good laugh out of it.

    Is it worth changing my fan orientation

    Negative pressure means more dust in your case but tthat is about it. You might gain a degree or two by going positive pressure but it won't be a huge difference.

    Corsair 780t mystery case wire.

    Two pins? Sounds like maybe something for lighting.

    What would YOU do?

    Yeah, I think I agree, it is going to be a 2080ti and a couple more of my 1440p monitors. I might sell the 980ti. My win 7 system already has a 970 in it. My son has a 1070 and my xp system has a GTX 260...which I admit is stupidly fast for XP. Probably don't need to pass down parts this time.

    What would YOU do?

    That is the hard part, I don't necessarily want to go 4k but I would LOVE to get two more of these 1440p and do some surround gaming. I am currently running the 1440 and a single 1080 2nd monitor. I want to get away from 1080 totally on this system so I can migrate the 1080 monitor over to my Win 7 retro system. It is currently using a 720p TV as a monitor. I could, of course, just buy a new 1080p monitor but if a want an upgrade why wouldn't I upgrade my main system and let the win7 and win xp machines have the hand me downs? Again, I am not looking for what "I" should do but what "you" would do.

    What would YOU do?

    I should have specified that I want the best I can get at 1440p at max, 165hz Gsync. If I want to get the brand new Tomb Raider or BF game do I even need a better card? I do have the money, and my relationship (wife of 20+ years) is used to me spending STUPID money on PC parts. So none of that is at risk. Basicaly, is a 2080ti overkill fot the resolution and refresh rate I run?

    What would YOU do?

    So, imagine you are me. You have an 8700k with a 980ti. Ram, SSD, HDD is all good. You have a Coraisr RM1000x psu. You have a 1440p 165hz monitor and want teh best/fastest graphics you can get.Do you: A : Keep your 980ti B : Say F it and but a 2080ti. C : Buy a 1080ti D : go for a 2080 non ti that is about on par with the stock 1080

    Will this rig work for gaming on a budget

    Looks good except for that monitor. IMO 1080p is the lowest you should be looking at. Something around 22 - 24 inches.

    Gaming Monitor

    I didn't even notice that. I bought mine last year. EDIT: You can get it straight from Dell for $409 though. EDIT 2: Best buy has it for 329.99. Crap, at that price I might have to order another one.

    Help with monitor search

    I know this is only 24" but it is the one I have for a primary and I love it https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IOO4SGK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 There is a 27" version as well. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0149QBOF0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1

    Any Metalheads here?

    Everyone here needs to check out Frog Leap Studios on youtube. He makes the best metal covers of shitty pop songs.

    1440p Gaming Monitor Recommendations

    That is the 27" version of mine. I bought the 24 because I run dual monitors and my desk size is VERY limited.

    1440p Gaming Monitor Recommendations

    Colors are a bit off out of the box but there are reviews right on amazon with suggested settings. I used one and, to me, it looks great. The overclocking took all of about 30 seconds though the OSD of the monitor.
