  1. As the title says, I am interested in buy a second monitor for numerous reasons. I looking you spend up to $200 (CAD) at most but preferably something cheaper. I was looking at this one
  2. Asus ROG Strix 1080ti 100% fan speed

    When ever I install the Nvidia drivers it ramps up my fan speed. Not sure really what to do. Specifically the graphic drivers

  4. Asus ROG Strix 1080ti 100% fan speed

    Hey I just added some pictures to the post from the Asus AI Suite 3 software. It says 0RPM but they are not 0.
  5. As the title says my card the none oc Strix 1080ti is running at 100% fan speed on two of the three fans. The card is at 38 - 40C° and I am just installing steam games. (Maybe not 100% but it is quite loud for the fans)

    2 fans from the factory is better then the 1 I got

  9. On the fence about the Dell Gaming S2417DG

    I was trying to find an IPS and there is just nothing I can afford. There was this one https://www.amazon.ca/Asus-FreeSync-MG279Q-Response-DisplayPort/dp/B00ZOO348C but spending as much as I would a graphics card. TN panels are really all I can afford. There was this other one https://www.amazon.ca/Pixio-Display-Professional-Adaptive-Monitor/dp/B0761P6MC7 but I am not going to pay $130 for shipping.
  10. On the fence about the Dell Gaming S2417DG

    My other option is this one https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009769&ignorebbr=1 and I just dont use the free sync.
  11. I have been reading a lot and watching a lot about the Dell Gaming S2417DG. I like the monitor and has a nice look but with multiple reports of banding very noticeable in movies and tv shows. This is some what worrying because I watch tons of content on my PC. Pretty much what I am saying is I have been weighing the pros and cons of the monitor and I am unsure. The monitor will be used in my build which is almost done. I would be pairing it with a 1080. https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0JC-0004-00551

  14. Wireless range extender

    So currently I have the Nighthawk R7000 and I was looking for a range extender for the top floor of my house. The house is a townhouse and I have the router in the basement. I was looking at the NETGEAR AC750 but I thought it would be good for a second opinion.
  15. I can't find any place that is selling this card for $699
