  1. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/geforce-gtx-ray-tracing-coming-soon/ That's right -- you'll soon be able to bork cripple your fps by enabling those sweet, sweet rays on your high end GTX Pascal and Turing based cards. But how did you ever live without it? Here's my favorite quote from the announcement of Nvidia's site: Is it a coincidence that Nvidia waited until Linus was on vacation to announce this? I think not. Still looking forward to WAN show on Friday.

    Suggest me a good monitor(someone reply)

    If you have an AMD/Radeon graphics card, I cannot recommend this monitor enough. I have a Dell SE2717H monitor I just picked up last month from Staples for $159 and absolutely love it. It is only 1080p, but it has 27" IPS panel with AMD FreeSync at 75 Hz refresh rate. Dell Link: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-27-monitor-se2717h/apd/210-aizr/monitors-monitor-accessories Staples Link: http://www.staples.com/Dell-27-SE2717HSC1-Monitor/product_2441498 This monitor has been on sale for $159 (USD) and Best Buy off and on since the beginning of the year. I will update this post if or when the new sales come out for the week because they go out of stock quickly (but typically reset at midnight). Some highlights include: Device Type LED-backlit LCD monitor - 27" Adaptive Sync Technology AMD FreeSync Panel Type IPS Native Resolution 1920 x 1080 at 75 Hz Response Time 6 ms (gray-to-gray) Input Connectors HDMI, VGA Screen Coating Anti-glare, 3H Hard Coating

    Need Monitors

    Correct, Nvidia cards are unable to use the open freesync technology. You want to look for a monitor with G-Sync technology from Nvidia Answer 1: I have the flat version and a buddy of mine has the new (slightly) curved model. The curved verizon seems a little more immersive, but it's not as noticeable or valuable as the having a curve on an ultrawide monitor. Answer 2: In most of the videos I have watched regarding refresh rates and G-Sync from LTT, everyone seems to value G-Sync much higher. I am not familiar with the power of your rig, but a 75 Hz monitor with G-Sync would be very enjoyable for playing games at 1080p or 1440p. The step up to higher refresh rate or higher resolution while keeping G-Sync technology seems to bring a very large jump in the price tag as well. With that being said, there are still noticeable improvements in the gaming experience and it is ultimately up to you what you want to spend your money on. Best of luck on your quest.

    Do I NEED a 3.5mm to A/V cable with ground

    You shouldn't need to use a 3.5mm A/V cable if you are using HDMI. Here is a link to the raspberry pi forum I used to get my HDMI to transmit audio as well. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5062 If your TV does not accept DMT/CEA and you want to use a A/V cable, then yes you must use a grounded 4-pole A/V breakout cable. I had a similar probelm back in the day with my iPod dock when I tried to hook it up to the TV. Ended up buying a grounded cable and everything worked perfectly.

    Budget 1080p 60hz monitor

    **Edit 4/23** Here is the link to this week's sale at Staples, the monitor on sale is actually the 24" version for $99. Same series of monitor and same specifications. I would snag one quickly, they usually go out of stock by Monday or Tuesday. Cheers! http://www.staples.com/Dell-24-inch-Monitor-SE2416HSC1/product_1968877?cid=PS:GooglePLAs:1968877&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=1968877&KPID=1968877&cvosrc=PLA.google-SALES.Computer Accessories %26 Peripherals&cvo_crid=39506881662&cvo_campaign=176606022&gclid=Cj0KEQjwofHHBRDS0Pnhpef89ucBEiQASEp6LHpk7JkBExcAfN6E4pY891hGXs8o2nI3bzgSLTsqRpQaAiPq8P8HAQ I have two Dell S2316H monitors I just picked up last week from Staples for $99 and absolutely love them: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-23-monitor-s2316h/apd/210-afuv/monitors-monitor-accessories They have been on sale for $99 (USD) at Staples and Best Buy off and on since the beginning of the year.
