    I have been struggling to get my LG 34UM58-P calibration setting right. Either the whites are too washed out or the blacks are too dark. any suggestions would be great.

    Thank you for your help. Honestly I'll treasure and value your opinion highly in my up coming considerations of what 5.1 I ought to get.....

    Pretty well actually. I know it's the low end for the 5.1 setup and I can bump my budget to $200. http://m.ebay.com/itm/Logitech-Z906-5-1-Surround-Sound-Speaker-System-RT5-980-000467-UG-/321946237486?hash=item4af57dba2e%3Ag%3AGfcAAOSwfZ1Wayuj&_trkparms=pageci%3A02a48d04-0d81-11e7-9321-74dbd18000a0%7Cparentrq%3Aec4fd97b15a0a357195ff06ffffac6d7%7Ciid%3A4

    New $4000 - PCIe lane confusion

    yeah you are fine. also if you can't wait get a evga 1080, join the step up program, and pay the difference for the 1080ti. I would not go with ryzen due to the poor benchmarks with gaming performance. Also get yourself a long ass ethernet cord, lines are always better.

    core i7 7700k vs new ryzen r7 1700

    Eh, so the thing with AMD, in respect to ryzen, which pcmag does a much more full in depth review about, is that if you are a streamer, YouTuber, or do heavy multi threaded application workload 1800x and the 1700(x) is very worth investing into. if you are doing pure gaming i7 7700k or a i7 6700k are way better for that route even an i5 7600k. The 1800x and the 1700(x) are aimed for individuals who are streamers, youtubers, and does what all not with multi threaded applications on a budget. Would I get the 1800x or 1700(x) no, because I would lose gaming performance. should you get it? well if you are not either the 4 categories meant for this chip series then the answer is no. We can beat the same horse with a dead cat but when push comes to shove, which pcmag review is A+ on, is that the ryzen chipsets that are currently released do not perform as well in gaming benchmarks.

    I7 7700k vs I7 6700k on evga motherboard

    both CPU are literally the same with the 7700k able to achieve a slightly higher overclock and has better power consumption. both cpu are fine for those two gpus. I would go with a 7700k since it is newer and really asus z270 a is a solid choice.
