    Help required choosing a PSU - Seasonic or Corsair

    Now, I don't know a lot about PSUs, but I'd like to ask first: are you sure the rest of your PC is okay, because a failure like that can also short your Mobo or other parts. Might be smart to first take a look at that.

    I need a monitor placement solution

    Alright, at least I now got a new lead that might get me somewhere!

    How does that work?

    Help me pick my new cpu please

    Also get the asus Mobo, but believe us when we say that the 3700x is the better choice. It performs similar to the 9700k in games to the point it doesn't matter and in every multi-threaded workload it out-performs the i7-9700k

    Get the 3700X with the ASUS mobo.

    As it is gonna be for gaming I suggest the i5 2400 option and than throw in the 4 gb stick of DDR3 you have laying around that would bump you up to 8 gb of ram and a somewhat decent cpu. As for the GPU, you're in big trouble, seeing that you're from the netherlands as well you can get gtx 960's for 60 euros, but that would put you over budget. The AMG GPUs you mentioned could, with patience and luck go for about 40 euros, but your PSU probably can't power them. The only GPU from the green team you could buy and power is the gtx 760, which is still a decent GPU. So my suggestion is: i5 2400 full system, non-activated windows on this bad boy, throw in you extra 4 gbs of ram and buy a GTX 760. Specs: i5-2400 8gbs of ram OEM mobo (presumably) some HDD Win 10 Gtx 760. This system will run eSports titles for the coming years on 1080p mid to low just fine.

    Display problems

    Either your GPU is doneso or the monitor is on drugs, I highly doubt the latter.

    PSU QUESTION

    Depends on what the rest of your system is gonna be, chances are that you aren't gonna need 800w and would indeed be better of getting the 600w gold.

    I need a monitor placement solution

    I recently bought a 29 inch LG ultrawide. It's great and all, but it's kinda... ya know... wide. This has created quite the hassle on my desk, especially because I have another 22 inch and 23 inch monitor that need to fit as well. My current setup is as shown in the attached picture. Now I'd like to move the top monitor to the right of my ultrawide in either a vertical or horizontal orientation (probably vertical), have my ultrawide be straight in front of me and not angled and a bit of center AND I'd like my 23 inch to the left not to fall of my desk (the 23 inch's position for the rest is fine with me). Now, everyone should be thinking: wallmounts. Right, my step-dad does not like that idea in the slightest and so it'd like to avoid wallmounts. I've got a single wallmount currently in use with the top monitor in the picture. I've got all the OG stands that go with the monitors. I've got about 60 euros to spend (if you have a more expensive option, feel free to submit it because if it's genius enough I'm willing to spend more) I'm willing to do some DIY work to make things work-out. I myself was thinking of a deskmount, but the back of my desk is about 12 cm T H I C C and I haven't been able to find a single deskmount that supports such a dummy T H I C C desk (I'm really living the 2017 dream here with T H I C C memes still making me chuckle). You also got multiple monitor stands, but those never support 29 inch ultrawides + a 23 inch + a 22 inch (even if it's mounted vertically). I hope some of you guys have some good suggestions! Thanks in advance!

    Searching for a reasonably priced G-sync FHD ultrawide

    I HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION. 'TIS THE MONITOR PERFECT FOR ME. https://www.coolblue.nl/product/809446/lg-29wk600.html HDR10 support, freesync, 75 hz, 2560 x 1080, 29 inch, IPS, A DISPLAYPORT -!-, BUILT IN SPEAKERS (don't know why I'm happy about that), it's also at the same reliable dutch store AND only for the small price of 232 euros. Let's hope I've found the perfect match for me.

    Searching for a reasonably priced G-sync FHD ultrawide

    Yes, but this: I'm sure it'll be fine and probably have a 5 ms response time in the worst case (I highly doubt it having a 14 ms response time), but still. It would feel like quite the gamble. I'll just keep on looking for now.

    Oof, right.

    Searching for a reasonably priced G-sync FHD ultrawide

    First one is a really good suggestion, now for the second one, my bullshitradar is poppin' of. So, I found the second one on a dutch site, where it was listed a bit cheaper, but it claimed to have a 14 ms response time (Hmmmmmmmmmmm). Now I found this amazon page and it claims it has a 1 ms response time (HMMMMMMMM), so, of course I went to a dutch techspec site (usually reliable) and that claimed the same monitor had a response time OF 5 MS (HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM). So, just to be safe, I ain't buying it. I also found something myself that might be good: https://www.coolblue.nl/product/833774/lg-29wl500.html The fact that it's 29 inch doesn't really matter for me since I don't need the extra screen real estate, because I have another 22 inch and 23 inch monitor that can make up for the lost screen real estate when scaling down from 34 inch to 29 inch. I do get HDR10 with this 29 inch monitor AND it's 100 euros cheaper, also it has fast delivery and it's a reliable dutch webshop. So, I'll probably end up buying this one.
  15. hi, I'm looking for a -preferably- 2560x1080m, G-sync monitor at a reasonable price. The other features are less important to me. I'm looking to buy new, and I have a max budget of 350 euros, but if you can't find anything for that price you can also submit something priced higher. I couldn't really find anything yet, mostly because google think freesync and g-sync are the exact same thing and so it's almost impossible to find a g-sync monitor in the first place. Thanks in advance.
