  1. NL Only Covers Half Screen

    So I just got a new 144hz monitor (Asus VG248) and when I turn on Windows Night Light or F.lux it only covers half of the screen and fades out for some reason. I am not sure if it's really that big of a deal but I do like having a program to soften colors at night and I don't know if it's a problem with the monitor itself. Could it be the cord or something? This is what it looks like Also it fully works on my second monitor
  2. Is my monitor defective?

    I'm not sure if I'm seeing things but this picture is with Windows Night Light on and its the reason I noticed it. For some reason when it's on it only covers half the screen but covers all of it on my second monitor. Also, for some reason, I tried the dead pixel test and did not notice the discoloration that I was seeing in my normal browser and apps.
  3. Is my monitor defective?

    So I just got an Asus VG248 144hz monitor and there is a strange tint on the top half of the screen and want to know if this is normal.
  4. Which monitor should I choose?

    I can't decide between these two monitors. I am looking to buy a 1080p 144hz monitor. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KO4518I/?tag=pcpapi-20&th=1\ https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HY7PAUC/?tag=pcpapi-20
  5. I wanted to discuss why I think the Nintendo Switch needs more function besides gaming. The Switch like mentioned a ton already has no media functions like YouTube or Netflix and I can really rant about it until I turn blue. It boggles my mind how the Switch enters the console market as a direct competitor (in price at least) to the PS4 and Xbox One S as a portable dedicated gaming machine that can only game. I don't know why Nintendo expects the Switch to be a portable tablet that you can only play games on. If you're going to make a tablet that people are going to be carrying around, at least make people have more of a reason to want to carry it. Now obviously the Switch has been selling units just fine but it just needs more, because compared to the other consoles the Switch may not even be a consideration because you're paying 300 dollars for a home/portable console which is only able to game. Even on top of it lacking media they're doing a lot of things wrong with online as well. Before they even think of charging people to play online they really need to straighten some things out. People not being able to play Fifa with their friends on the Switch makes me shake my head. Also, it does not seem to be as straightforward communicating directly through the tablet because it doesn't even have a built-in mic or Bluetooth (both a missed opportunity imo). When using the Switch you can't help but feel completely cut off from others because as far as I know, there isn't a way to send messages to friends, talk directly through the device (like you should be able to), receive notifications, or even a cool profile page would be awesome. These two main reasons bring me back to why I think the Switch just falls really short of the other consoles in terms of online play and function. The Switch could compete better with the PS4 and Xbox if they fix these problems because I believe it needs more than really great 1st party games (and some good 3rd party ones coming soon) and portability to truly be a great portable console.
  6. I kind of marvel Apple

    What amazes me most about Apple is how effortless they market their products and sell them. Apple can use features other phones have had that work well and they take that feature or gimmick from being either not known about as widely to a "revolutionary" advancement. Apple uses something like touch id, borderless screens, dual cameras, or facial recognition to completely trump other phones that have already done so with little to no effort while doing so. I say this because after the Apple press conference I've been overhearing lots of people speaking of either how they've already ordered an iPhone 8 or how they think the iPhone X is amazing with almost no research into the phone to see if it's actually good even after facial recognition failed to work on stage a few times (they just blindly throw money at them because "it's the new iPhone" it has to be good). Apple pumps sweet-nothings into people's ears about "10,000 dots" or how flawless and smooth iOS 11 is and people fall for it so easily. When Samsung did the Infinity display I did not hear or see anyone bat an eye at it. It's almost like a lot of people don't even know there are other good phones besides an iPhone because they're so involved with Apple. But the point I'm trying to get across/discuss is how little they have to innovate to get a large majority of buyers on board (and raving about) with their products. It's also the same deal with MacBooks on how "they're the best college/school laptops" when in reality there are other options that are better at a lower price but guess what, it's Apple, it's ALWAYS worth the extra cost because they're always the "best" to a lot of electronic consumers. This is just how I see Apple and how they are able to leverage their products just because people blindly see Apple as the best electronics company on Earth so anything they buy from them is "guaranteed" a "great" product.
  7. So I want to cool my whole system with 2 120mm AIOs for a i7 4790k and GTX 1070 (neither overclocked). Would I be able to run the system quietly say at less than 1900rpm and < 70 degrees
  8. "Innovtion" from Apple

    No, Apple did face recognition and wireless charging... So it's REVOLUTIONARY
  9. IPhone X Thoughts

    I would only consider buying it at $699..
  10. Better g-sync monitor

    Right now I have a 23inch 1080p and I sit about 3 feet from them
  11. Better g-sync monitor

  12. Better g-sync monitor

    I'm looking to buy a g-sync monitor to get rid of all input lag from v-sync (I'm also surprised there isn't very many of them) and I want to get the cheapest one (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/R998TW/aoc-monitor-g2460pg) but then the next cheapest one is 165hz and 1440 (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/CwgPxr/dell-s2417dg-238-165hz-monitor-s2417dg). My concern is I'm not sure if my PC is good enough for 1440p or if it's worth the extra cost. I have an i7 4790k and GTX 1070 in my computer. Also, It could be viable that I just get a higher refresh rate 1080p monitor at like 180hz but at that point, I'm not sure if I'm getting much more on top of g-sync and 144hz. Or, if I should just resort to saving some money by simply getting a high refresh rate monitor without g-sync for cheaper. My main goal is to get rid of screen tearing for a better visual experience but not at the cost of input lag
  13. What would a good gaming laptop be to pickup that is around $750 that can play games like Overwatch and Dota 2 while also being a good laptop for class aesthetically and functionally. I'm thinking a good middle of the road size would be 15 inches but I'm not too sure. Thanks
  14. What old games do you want to be remastered for PC?

    I played this when I was very young and I enjoyed it
  15. Looking for Switch friends for Splatoon 2

    Yeah, I can do Discord if you want but I'm more of a casual player.. I'm also not level 10 yet (9).
