  1. Gaming Monitor what to buy??

    this isnt VA ot IPS though. it is a TN panel and ive seen the dell monitor personally and compared it to a VA.
  2. Gaming Monitor what to buy??

    i dont think thats necessary, ive watched from 5-6 metres away on a 22.3 inch and its perfectly fine. im jjust asking if having a curve affects that immersion for longer distance vieweing as opposed to sitting at the desk. also 144hz is a bit overkill for me, 100hz is fine and even 32' way too big
  3. Gaming Monitor what to buy??

    So, here's the rig im building... i5 8400k/ryzen 5 1600 + 1070ti + 16 gb ram + 128 pcie nvme ssd + 1 tb sata ssd + 10 tb hdd. This machine doubles up as a private media server, hencer the overkill storage. So i am on the lookout for a good gaming monitor preferably 16:9 aspect, 1440p and 100hz refresh rate. would prefer a VA panel for budget reasons but a IPS will do too, would like to avoid TN unless its a really good one. I would love a super immersive experience and am considering a curved monitor, but not sure about that as I will be using the monitor for games AND plenty of movies and anime. i know this is kind of a weird question, are curved monitors any good for watching movies from a distance? when i watch movies/anime I usually don't sit at the desk, but instead I laze back on the bed which is a few metres away. one monitor i was seriously considering was the MSI Optix MAG27CQ https://www.msi.com/Monitor/Optix-MAG27CQ Please help with recomendations. Thank you guys
  4. Sounds good, do you know how they compare to the Polk t15s? Im looking for at least that level of sound quality. same question as above, how do they compare to the polk t15s, any idea?
  5. I am but still need advice on not too large pair of bookshelves and the entire config, i'm a newbie to speaker audio. These will be on a desk primarily connected to a computer used for music, movies and games.
  6. So I'm looking at picking up my first set of really good bookshelf/desktop speakers. I'm on a tight budget for high quality sound: CAD $600 tops for 2 bookshelf speakers and a sub-woofer. I have been considering 2 sets of speakers + woofer 1. Audio engine HD3 SELF POWERED + audioengine s8 woofer (totals $1000 and pushes my budget alot, i may buy the woofer after a while and save $450 but ideally wouldn't want do without one) Speakers: https://www.premiumsoundcanada.com/collections/audioengine/products/audioengine-hd3-2-way-wireless-bluetooth-bookshelf-speakers-pair Woofer:https://www.premiumsoundcanada.com/collections/audioengine/products/audioengine-s8-premium-powered-subwoofer-black 2. Polk Audio T15 speakers + polk audio psw10 sub-woofer (totals $300) Speakers: https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/polk-audio-polk-audio-t15-bookshelf-speakers-black-pair-t15/10270588.aspx? woofer: https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/polk-audio-polk-audio-psw10-10-100-watt-powered-subwoofer-psw10/10053785.aspx? I could go with the polk, but i've heard recorded playback from the audioengines and even while recorded they sound really good. can anyone help with a comparison? audioengine retailers in the US are the only ones that let you audition the speakers and im based in Canada. that aside, i will need to purchase a stereo or AV receiver but i dont know much about them in terms of channels and features. Is there anyone here who could help me figure out what to do or go for? either over the forum or even over a private chat who could help with this? i just want a kick ass audio experience. Thanks in advance.
  7. does undervolting void the warranty?
  8. I know, but just wanted to say that your effort is not unnoticed
  9. you are so active on this forum, i dont think there is a single post of mine that you havent responded to. on behalf of the community, thank you so much
  10. i dont know how to undervolt. but if the cooling works, thats fine for me thank you
  11. I've never owned a laptop before, but have always been concerned about heat slowly destroying the internals over time. Would you guys recommend using a cooling pad with a dell inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop. If yes, what cooling pad do you recommend?
  12. looks like dell takes the cake. thank you guys. if you know of any good deals on the ips models let me know thanks
  13. So is the Dell 7567 the same as the Dell Inspiron 15 7000?
