  1. I'd definitely go with the BenQ when compared to the Predator XB271HU, it was my top choice but it wasn't available so I considered Acer then suddenly one of the retailers I emailed, just emailed me back today saying the BenQ was available and I instantly ordered it. There's lack of genuine reviews out there but I do believe it's a better monitor compared to the old Acer competitions like Nitro or XB1 I'd go with LG if it was in stock but since it's not and it won't be for foreseeable future, I'm happy with the BenQ just as much.
  2. I'm imagining that's an okay fit considering 10bit stuff [8+FRC] and HDRi etc then. Because I ordered a separate one with the monitor since I don't think you get one inside the box. And i realized after ordering that it was 1.2
  3. Hey man, I managed to contact one of the folks here and they availed BenQ's EX2780Q for me, which is grand so I've ordered that just today! Now it's a waiting game. Might I ask, since the monitor has DP 1.4 port, am I okay with using a 1.2 cable?
  4. Thanks for the quick response to clear my doubt you folks! I'll sleep better now haha
  5. I'll keep it short, I've upgraded my PC early last year and I had put 2x8 TridentZ this exact model : https://www.gskill.com/product/165/166/1536654268/F4-3200C16D-16GTZRTrident-Z-RGBDDR4-3200MHz-CL16-18-18-38-1.35V16GB-(2x8GB) Now I wanna upgrade my RAM, make it 32GB and I've been meaning to place order for another 2x8 kit [exact model] but I read someplace that you oughta order 4x8 Kits if you wanna have them be compatible and that's been messing with me because I can't just ignore my current RAM and order another kit of 4x8. So am I safe in ordering 2 more of the same model? Rest of the specs: Intel i7 8700K + GTX 1080Ti + ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-E Motherboard Let me know, thanks!
  6. Hello folks, I write this in desperation right now as I need a monitor and I held on for months till LG's 27GL850 were introduced to Indian market but there's no talk of any of them being available. Then recently came BenQ EX2780Q and even that isn't yet available here and I don't know if it will be for foreseeable future. The reason I want some help here is because my current Dell 1080p IPS monitor I got from 2014 has some panel issues, it flickers randomly [though rarely] and has a permanent green vertical line to the left side. Therefore, it may die someday soon or even if it doesn't, I feel like I do need an upgrade as I upgraded to 1080Ti earlier this year. Now my usage is : some competitive gaming such as R6 Siege/Destiny 2 at the moment with all kinds of games that interest me, indie or AAA ones. I like IPS and I don't wanna go to a TN panel, not because I love the IPS, but also because of my second main usage: 3D Modeling, I am an aspiring 3D artist, I try to sculpt/create characters so I use ZBrush/Maya/Substance etc for my studies. Right now, the only option I could see that's available to me is an Acer XB271HU [45,000 Rs = approx 600$ USD] in the market that's both IPS and 144Hz to meet my needs here where I think I could both game and work on my 3D art. However, I really wanna know people's suggestion from here if available, the websites I use to get PC components are - amazon.in, theitdepot.com, primeabgb.com, mdcomputers.in, vedantcomputers.com I've considered Acer Nitro XV272U a while back when I first asked for an advice through the forum but found out that it's a downscaled 4k panel or something from one of the reviews that says it's not as good as a native 1440p monitor so that turned me off from getting it. I've also looked at BenQ PD2700Q and BenQ SW2700PT, kinda entertained the idea of me buying one of these, trying to convince myself that maybe it's the right choice to again stick with 60Hz for focusing more on work but I also can't get the idea of a higher refresh rate out of my head especially when there's IPS monitors available out there with 144Hz these days. TL;DR - On a budget of around 45,000 Rs/600$ USD Study 3D Character Modeling + Moderate amount of gaming 1. Want a 1440p IPS monitor with 144Hz refresh rate but only have Acer XB271HU available in market as far as I've looked [is it a good option?] 2. If I must, I'm willing to go lower with refresh rate if that's really what I should aim for as an artist first than a competitive gamer or the other way around, maybe someone in the industry of 3D Character design would argue I wouldn't need that much color accuracy unless it's a color grading work for Pixar or something [someone said that to me once] Please help me out here, I'm really lost and confused that it's eating me up inside.
  7. Hello folks! I've upgraded my system early last year, from 4th Gen to 8th Gen Processor, here's my specs to keep everything short : Processor : Intel Core i7 8700K [with Corsair H100i V2 Cooler] Motherboard : Asus ROG Strix Z370-E RAM : G.Skill TridentZ 16GB [8x8] 3200MHz Graphics Card : Asus ROG Strix GTX1080Ti My question is : I've been wanting to upgrade my ram to 32GB, and I thought I shall go for another 2 sticks of 3200MHz TridentZ, the same model I bought before, however, I have read some articles here and there saying that it's really hard to get the RAMs to work together if they haven't come in the same pack before. I really don't wanna spend more and throw away my RAMs to get a 4 sticks bundle. Is this really an issue to upgrade later? Or is it not so true and I'm overthinking about it? I don't wanna waste my money only to find out my RAMs don't work and that I have to send them back and I don't even know if they'll issue a refund so it's bit of a risk. Please help me out here, thank you!
  8. Thanks, man! All the information so far, they helped a lot!
  9. That really sounds good to me because I'm now thinking of just ordering the second one https://www.amazon.in/Acer-Nitro-XV272U-IPS-Monitor/dp/B07SHPJJZR/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=acer+144hz&qid=1565035648&refinements=p_36%3A3000000-5500000&rnid=1318502031&s=computers&sr=1-5 It's only 1 available in stock so I guess I should be going for it soon
  10. Haha, yep! Also, if I may ask for some help : What'd be the difference b/w the two? https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/UM.HV1AA.P01 and https://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/model/UM.HX2EE.P01 The second option is a bit expensive but still in the budget and what I noticed was that the color gamut for it says 95% DCI-P3 While the first one says 100%sRGB
  11. Great! Seems fine to me too I'll look into it more. This one seemed a really good find and I wonder how well it'll perform
  12. I see, also, I just came across this one : https://www.amazon.in/Acer-Nitro-VG271U-Gaming-Monitor/dp/B07N41RNX7/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=ips+144hz&qid=1565034074&s=computers&sr=1-4 How about this one? It's in the budget and seems to be 1ms and 144Hz too. With an IPS display. Official link : https://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/UM.HV1AA.P01
  13. It's cheaper than what I was looking for, compared to others. It's around 360$USD but is it a good one? In the comments they show some backlight bleed issues and it's not IPS either. Say I increase my budget a little more and Acer Predator XB271HU is what I could go with, how does that sound? https://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/predator-model/UM.HX1EE.005 It's available for 650$USD and I may get it at around 600$ by some 50$ discount.
  14. Nope, that seems to be exclusively available in UK or at least for the most part, here, we got some ACER and Asus and BenQ and Dell monitors that mostly dominate the market. The sites I usually look for these are : www.theitdepot.com www.primeabgb.com www.mdcomputers.in www.vedantcomputers.com www.amazon.in
  15. I'd really love it but unfortunately it's not available in India.
  16. Hello there, folks. So I've been using my PC with my IPS display of Dell S2240L since 2014 now. The panel now seems to have been messing up, there's a permanent green line going straight down on the panel that looks really weird, but I've been putting up with it for a few months now. It's not too thick to block much of my vision on whatever it is that I'm doing. Although, now's also the time for me to upgrade/get a second screen, my main goal is 3D Modeling and do all the arts work. My choice right now is a Dell UltraSharp 25" (U2518D) it's available for about 33k INR which is 460-500$USD But, I have to mention I also game a lot and I am really attracted towards gaming monitors for their higher refresh rates, the drawback is the TN panel, I think if I'm doing arts, with the color sensitive work, I should stick with IPS? I want to keep my current monitor, and if possible, maybe have its panel replaced, some computer repairing guy said that could be done but idk if it's going to be the real deal? The price for replacing it wasn't that high at least to me [it was about 50$), so I don't know if it's going to affect the quality of the monitor compared to the original panel that it came with. So anyway, I'll keep the current monitor and have it as my secondary screen I'd use for references etc as I work on the new primary monitor that's supposed to be better. TL;DR : My budget is 500$ and I wanna know if it's possible to get a gaming monitor with good display for art work as well as higher refresh rates or if I should stick with IPS and 60Hz monitor and if Dell UltraSharp 25" (U2518D) is a good idea? Lemme know!
  17. Oh it was resolved, all they said I had to do was to set up an IP4 Address for my PC. Doing that, made everything work again.
  18. Hello, So I'm using my FTTH connection and suddenly for the past 3 days, my Steam's started not loading its homepage. Then my Uplay would also be acting weird, it won't load up the photos/avatars of any of my friends from my friendlist Then comes Origin, which wouldn't even let me log in, it'd keep loading and tell me that the Origin is unavailable to login at the moment which is strange because I'm using a 100 Mbps connection and speedtest's giving good results as well as other websites working well, like Google, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook etc. They all work on my phone data or other network but just not on my FTTH, so I don't know what to say to my ISP because I don't know what's this problem even called... It's kind of frustrating me now because I can't play a lots of games on Origin or access Steam store. Could anyone help me out with this?
  19. I know and that's what bugs me, I'm right now in a position where my GPU could just die at any second and that'd stop my studies for as long as I gotta wait for the new series. If only I wasn't living here, I'd have gotten the card at a cheaper cost. I know that it's not at all that expensive in other parts of the world but there's nothing I could do about it, if I have them ship one through USA, the customs would fuck me up still. But I'll check what I could do about it.
  20. I have upgraded my PSU from a CX600W to an RM850x just last time as I upgraded my CPU and RAM and my Motherboard. Also my case does look like it'd support the size of a 1080Ti, I've had the extra HDD cases removed so there's plenty of room for a wide card.
  21. Btw, to add one more question, if I was to go for a 1080Ti, should I go with an ASUS STRIX OC edition or Zotac AMP! Extreme edition? ZOTAC one is a bit cheaper than ASUS. Zotac : 1071 USD ASUS : 1155 USD
  22. Haha, I'd definitely not do that! I'll have my focus on a bit of Siege and I did think about grabbing a Zowie gaming monitor to go for 144Hz but seeing as how 3D is more of my priority than gaming, I decided to instead try and invest for a Dell Ultrasharp next and keep my gaming to minimum during the next 2-3 years. So I will play graphics intense games like the upcoming Metro/Division 2 and more to come, but I'd definitely not go 4k for them. And at current time, I only play R6 Siege with Mid-High settings even though my card could handle more, there are some benefits to the low settings in this game. Thanks for reassuring, my doubts get the best of me and they have made me make some bad decisions in the past and so I wanted to clarify everything with experts in here. It's always been a great experience to have talked about any future upgrading plans on here.
  23. Alright, great! I'd try waiting around if I could. The reason I'm now getting a bit uneasy is because the monitor shuts down without me playing anything, by just regular uses such as watching YT or doing general surfing on the web. And after that happens, the PC shuts down so I'm thinking this card could give up any time and I may not be able to use the computer at all. If it does do that, then I'll be grabbing the 1080Ti because I'd have no choice. Otherwise I'll use my onboard video card to try and wait around for a month or two. Thanks for your answers! They do help.
  24. So for the last question, if I were to go with a 1080Ti right now. How long do you think I'd find it suffice? Here's my needs exactly : I don't care much about playing games on ultra, right now I'm fine with playing on my 780 that handles games at about Mid-High settings and I dont mind that at all. I dont have a 4K monitor and I dont intend to go there. Because my focus is on 3D Modeling, I'm thinking of getting a 1440p Dell's Ultrasharp instead. So for the 3D work and me playing games at 1080/1440p at max, what do you think?
