  1. You're over thinking it. just do it if you can afford it.
  2. PG279Q VS XG2703-GS

    Dont buy Asus monitors. I had to call in and wait for 3 months to get a warranty replacement for my PG279Q. Unless you think you'll get a good one that'll last then by all means. The monitor is great when it works. Stunning. But if it goes wrong ASUS customer service is a joke and quality control is as bad as everyone claims. I went through 3 initial purchase to get one that didnt have clusters of dead pixels until the most recent one which had a line of stuck pixels along the left side of the screen. I'm not one of those nut jobs that over analyzes products expecting them to be perfect but for the price I'm paying I expect something better.
  3. Does your mobo have that boot jumper that underclocks your cpu in case of a bad OC?
  4. Recommendations for a new “gaming” chair

    Bought a "racing seat" style gaming chair. They're good seats if you're not prone to back issues and if you sit for short periods of time. They're uncomfortable as all hell and because it doesn't have support or a lot of padding it kills my back after a half hour or so. I'd rather gamble on a $200 office chair than an RGB iVTECH seat. I'm on my way to Office Depot now to get a comfy office chair that doesn't look like it belongs in a 15 year olds honda
  5. Alternatives to the Ikea Linnmon Corner Desk?

    Check amazon. I grabbed two L shaped desks and made and nice U shaped for my office
  6. PC speaker bar

    I have a Sony surround sound system meant for home theater hooked up to my PC. I use it for movies and sports but use my headset for gaming.
  7. PG248Q support

    Just get one off Amazon. VESA 100x100 works
  8. Looking for a monitor. Not sure what to get?

    Dont buy an ASUS they're garbage.
  9. BEST 120mm case fan

    I love my Corsair SP120's and highly recommend them.
  10. laptop on ebay- real or fake

    I've seen a lot of fake eBay listings and fell for one. Usually they send out small empty boxes with a tracking number and to a slightly wrong address so it'll never arrive. Dont waste your time and money. If you're using paypal and you feel adventurous give it a shot and report back. PayPal at least has your back
  11. Any opinion on Corsair mice compared to the others listed? Awesome write up thanks.
  12. Best wireless headset?

    I have the Arctis 5 and love them. Heard great things about the Arctis 7s. The only complaints I have is the headband feels loose on my head and the headsets have a mute problem. Went through 3 headsets all with the same issue. If you have it on mute and make a lout enough noise it'll still register faintly. Still love the headset though.
  13. Im confusing myself. I meant that its a low voltage from the PCIE anyway. Majority of power I thought came from the PSU directly. So I figured most cards run with that same low voltage from the PCIE. That was my understanding. Regardless, did you check your BIOS settings for the PCIE and graphics?
  14. isnt the PCIE power low voltage anyway? I always figured that threshold was hit a while back as far as graphics card power goes. Did you check your BIOS config for the PCIE slot and also for graphics options?
  15. Are these dead pixels?

    Stuck pixels. Try one of the free fixes online but most likely the monitor is fubar
