  1. Heyy, I'm looking for suggestions from you guys on choosing a good model of monitor for a dual monitor setup. Constraints - would like to stay under $300 per monitor if possible, can go over (a bit) if its worth it. - I do some gaming but not enough that I think my monitor refresh rate will improve my scores. More so, I care about color accuracy and image quality like contrast etc. The computer is used 80% for work and movies, 20% games. - Dual monitor setup so thin bezel would be preferred. - My rig has a 1070TI currently, might upgrade in a few years. - The bigger the better. Thinking 24" would be minimum.
  2. Ok, I went through all the suggestions (THANK YOU GUYS!!!). This helped me narrow things down much faster. Bringing everything together, I came up with this combo. Suggestions ? Anything stand out as crazy?

  3. I'm seeing 1070Ti's for around the $550 mark. But why are they sooo different from each other. Is the 1080Ti THAT much better ?
  4. I want to build a VR setup PC for my living room. Known design criteria: - Headset - HTC Vive (not the pro) - Relatively quiet - It will be running in the living room, I don't want to hear it taking off like a jet engine! - Case - Don't care about the looks, and I don't need the flashing LED lights! - Video card - Open to suggestions but was thinking a GTX 1080 Ti, or a GTX 1070 Ti. The 1080 Ti seems SOOO expensive though! - Budget - Under $2000 CDN, but even better would be under $1500. I am pulling my hair out with even just picking the video card. I thought the bitcoin craze had ended. But I'm finding 1080Ti's for $1000+ which seems crazy. Can anyone help me and point me in the right direction ?
