  1. Not sure if this is the right place to post since it’s a bit of a complex problem and I don’t know how to solve it. I have two computers, one work and one personal. My work provided me an LG UltraFine Display to connect to my work computer ( a MacBook Pro) which is connected via a thunderbolt 3 port. My personal computer is a custom built PC that is running a Mini ITX board (an ROG STRIX Z370-I) with a GTX 1080ti connected to a monitor. i want to connect my LG UltraFine display to my personal computer when I’m not using it for work but I don’t know how... I was told a simple thunderbolt 3 to HDMI wouldn’t work because the connection data types are different. how can I connect my pc to the LG UltraFine display as a second monitor?
  2. Does it really make a difference? I always thought GSync was kind of a gimmic. Like screen tearing wouldn't really be a pronounced issue with every game I play.
  3. So here's a little bit of information about my rig, ASUS ROG STRIX Z370I Gaming Motherboard 16GB DDR4 RAM i7-8700K GTX 1080ti Alright, in the past I've always had 2-ish monitors side-by-side. Now that I have a job a bit more money, I wanna invest in a new computer and with that a better monitor. Priorities: A nice ultrawide, something that looks clean, good color accuracy, high refresh rate, and a sleek design (don't really like those "gamer" oriented monitors because I hate that red bulky aggressive design). I'd also like a curve, but one that is not subtle. If I'm paying a premium for a curve, that curve better be pronounced. I also want a low-profile design, so it isn't massive in terms of taking up a lot of desk space just for the monitor itself. Money wise... I don't really have a budget (I mean nothing crazy like over 1500 please) I'm kinda trying to decide between these 3: LG 34UC88 IPS Monitor Samsung CF791 Monitor ASUS MX34VQ Or maybe something else if you have a better recommendation. I want to ideally get the Samsung or Asus, but being someone who likes color accuracy, the non-IPS panels are kind of an issue for me. That being said, the design of the Samsung and ASUS monitors are simply gorgeous in their sleek design. What do you guys think between these 3, or maybe you have something else to recommend?
  4. Yeah I'm honestly still debating what to do here... I REALLY like the look of the Vengeance Pro RAM, while the Trident Z seems a bit less vibrant.
  5. oh okay that makes more sense. I thought they were just having technical issues, but yeah I guess the financial incentive one makes more sense. It really sucks that either company won't support the other's RGB lighting software.
  6. Started a new build a week or so ago and with a little more cash in my hand, I ended up buying 2 sticks (2x8GB) of Corsair's new Vengeance RGB Pro. I think it's one of the best looking RGB RAM stick's on the market and I was super excited to get it only to find out it isn't compatible with ASUS's Aura Sync software which is what my motherboard uses to control the RGB lighting. Why? Corsair's Vengeance RGB memory sticks work with Aura Sync, so why not the pro lineup? Kinda confused and since it's been months since the RAM has been released, both companies have had plenty of time to develop support for each other's software. One of the things I'm very peculiar about is downloading multiple software just to control the RGB modules on my build. Is there anyway to merge the LED backlight that comes with my ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-I Gaming Motherboard and my Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro RAM? If not I might just opt-out of getting the ram and go for something that is compatible with Aura Sync like Tridgent G Skill RGB memory.
  7. Awesome, as for my other question, Why are there 2 connectors on some parts of my 4-WAY SLI Bridge, but only 1 on other parts?
  8. Okay... So I currently go to college in another state and I do most of my work on my custom built PC. It uses an ASUS Z-97 WS Motherboard, 16GB of RAM, a CPU, and most importantly a GTX 970. Now one of my mates here in college is getting rid of his old computer that also has a 970 in it. In fact, it is the same 970 that I have so I bought it from him.. Now I have 2 970's and I can SLI them together. The only problem is, I only have a 4-WAY SLI Bridge (see picture below), not a 2-WAY. My question is, can I just use my 4-WAY SLI Bridge even though I only have 2 graphics card and just not plug in any additional graphics cards into the other two slots? The reason I'm asking this is because I noticed on my 4-WAY SLI Bridge that the connections made to the graphics cards are different depending on which card it is. Some have 2 connections and some have 1. What is up with that? Any help would be appreciated! P.S: I know I could just buy an inexpensive 2-WAY SLI Bridge, but I really don't want to spend anymore money than I need to!
  9. Thanks everyone! Yeah it definitely does look like a 10 series Aero card. The images online for this card look exactly the same as what I saw in the lab. Still a bit unsure why it doesn't have an MSI logo/tagging on it?
  10. So I found this graphics card at my lab just sitting around doing nothing and I need help identifying it. It doesn't turn on, but I can't place the actual model / version. I've included some pictures. Can anyone help me out?
