  1. Yeah, so the title basically says it all. I am looking for a display that is reasonably color-accurate and good enough to game on. I want to edit more photos and that is why I want to switch, but I also still like to game now and then. Price up to 300ish is OK. Obviously, if THE ULTIMATE display is like 320 that would also be perfectly fine. I have been looking at so. Many different monitors and was hoping for people who might actually have something like this. Edit: stuff I thought about was Lg34um69g Lg27ud58 Lg29um69g Dell U2417H Dell U2718D
  2. My brother actually ordered this for me for Christmas as a little gift. 😉

    Did nothing ever happen?
  4. So before anyone screams "get a 5D MK IV": I want to up my photo quality a bit. Currently using an EOS 100D with a few lenses of decent quality. I was looking at the 80D and it seems like a logical upgrade from my 100D due to the lenses, but I found that a classic 6D is also quite affordable and I was told that low-light performance is quite good as well as the possibility to print images larger than usual. The lack of focus points is not really an issue for me, as I usually only shoot using the center point anyways. I know that the features in the 80D are better, but I honestly mostly care about pure image quality. The 80D is great as far as I can tell, but would the 6D be better?

    No longer powering up

    Look in your motherboard manual, there should be instructions there. Sometimes it is a simple jumper on the motherboard, but I would check the manual first! There should be something called clear CMOS.

    I actually had a similar issue where my PC powered on the then just shut itself off. I simply did a bios reset and then it was back to normal. Might help, might not. My second guess would also be the PSU. Also something I experienced once....long ago. Same behavior and a b**** to troubleshoot.
  7. I would take the 8600k for gaming. Any day. 6 threads is enough and they are also fast enough for any game you could throw at it and can also do some light editing. Hell, people used to edit on 4c/8t CPUs, so the real 6 cores should be more than fine.
  8. Sigma 10-20/3.5 is coming

  9. I have the sl1. Bought it used as my first camera last year, although the sl2 was already out. I only paid about 280 with the kit lense vs. about 600 for the 200D. Yes the 200d is a bit better, but not double better. ;-) Personally that is the route ( SL2 or sl1) I would go. Yes the bigger cameras are sometimes better, but the best camera is the one you will take with you and the sl1 and 2 are small enough for me to mostly do that. If you don't care about size at all, by all means get a 750d or so. Also consider used. I saved about 300 and bought a nice sigma 17-50/2.8 lense for that money. Then I sold the kit lense and with a little extra I got the 24mm pancake. The pancake with the SL1 or 2 is an amazing setup. So small.
  10. I need/want an ultrawide angle lense for my Canon 100D. What should I get? 

    The ef-s 10-18 has such a "bad" aperture...

  11. ...undervolting ryzen...

  12. I really wanna tinker around on my PC..... but what? Specs are the best. They are amazing. I mean they are tremendous.  I even got the most amazing overclock in place. Truly great. The greatest. 


    All kidding aside. What do you do to optimize you PC setup or actual PC?
