  1. *Update* I switched the input back to DP and it shows my desktop background along with the windows bar but no icons. It also won't open up any of the applications I click on but when I switch back to HDMI all the applications are opened.
  2. I can't find anything I can use DP with in my house, anything else I can try?
  3. So I recently bought a BenQ GW2765 1440p monitor to game on and I've had it hooked up via DP. Every now and then when I restart my computer it takes a while for the BenQ to catch the signal that I've turned it on but now it just doesn't get a signal at all. I've switched over to HDMI and everything is working fine. How can I fix it so I can run it off of DP and am I missing out on anything by running it off HDMI?
  4. So I recently purchased a SS Rival 300 and I have my push to talk as B4 which is the side button. I have no issues whenever I'm using this in game, however, when I'm browsing and talking to friends it always brings my webpage back when I click it. How do I disable that feature without disabling the button itself?
  5. Yeah, from what both optical and USB must be plugged in. I've tried to fiddle around with it but haven't found something to fix the issue
  6. So I recently purchased a pair of SteelSeries Siberia 840s and I'm able to game/watch movies all day and night without an issue but when I try to listen to music from my iTunes library I can't hear anything. I have it connected through USB/Optical to my motherboard. I'm not sure if this is an issue with iTunes or my 840s but the Siberia Elites I just had played my iTunes library just fine. Anyone know what might be the problem?
  7. Don't know why they'd have that as a driver under the 1070 download section then lol, thanks
  8. I just bought and installed my MSI GTX 1070 gaming X and everything went fine until I finished downloading Liveupdate 6. Every time I try to launch the program I get an error msg saying " The platform does not support this application". Anyone know how I can fix this?

  9. I'm currently running it off a HDMI with the drivers up to date. I haven't gone in game just yet but will switching to DP give me better color accuracy?
  10. So I just finished installing my GTX 1070 from MSI and bought a BenQ GW2765HT 1440p monitor to go along with it. The question now is, HDMI or DP and why?? I did look around to see if I could find the answer myself but all I find are mixed reviews.
  11. Recommendations? Also I'm seeing reports of people being able to OC the acer g257hu to 85Hz
  12. So I'm picking up my 1070 tomorrow and I'm still stuck on what type of monitor to get. I'd be gaming/streaming for the most part and watching movies here and there. I usually play CSGO/COD/BF and once i get the 1070 ill jump into AC, GTA V and other more demanding games once grab my card. I'm currently playing on my old PC's HP 2009m and haven't experience any other type of monitor. I have a budget of around $400 CAD and I'm stuck between grabbing an Acer G257HU (1440p 25") or the LG 29um58-P (1080 Ultrawide 29"). Which would give me the better experience or if you guys have any other recommendations feel free to share!

    Help with monitor

    What would you guys recommend for a gaming monitor for games like CSGO,GTAV,BF,COD,DBD. I also am getting a GTX 1070 and I'm stuck between a 29um58-p or an Acer G257HU
  14. I'm just worried because every here and there I see people saying you're able to see individual pixels on the 29um58-P because of its low PPI? anyone here own one and can verify?? Also, I don't feel like the 1070 will be able to run games at 1440p for more than a year seeing how it's already running most at 40-80fps
  15. What would be a good 29" 1440p ultrawide?
