  1. The link works fine for me. The motherboard in that HP computer is proprietary. The power connections are not the same as what you would have on a standard ATX or MATX motherboard... So you will have trouble with upgrading the PSU. You may also have trouble plugging in the power button to a normal case.
  2. Primochill (primoflex) Advanced LRT has never given me a problem.
  3. Add me to the list of people that REALLY should have checked the forum before my purchase of Synergy. What an absolutely abysmal program... ZERO configurable options. Zero options at all. There isn't even a simple start/stop button. You have to manually stop the service to get it to stop running on your system. That alone makes the software worthless to me, but the crappy attitude of Nick Bolton, CEO of Symless, on the Synergy forum is the nail in the coffin. He refuses to answer simple, uninflammatory questions on the matter and instead immediately gets snippy and defensive. He'd rather point to the refund option rather than answer a simple question or address a user's concern. VERY disappointed. I don't mean to raise pitchforks, but this REALLY took me by surprise. The LTT team should really consider looking into this. As it stands, I'm going to try my luck at refunding. @nicklmg @LinusTech @CPotter @Slick
  4. All we can really say for sure (or close to it) is that the Intel chips will have better IPC numbers.... Who knows what the value will actually end up being though. Wait for benchmarks and prices.
  5. The i5 will be plenty. I think you picked some pretty good options as long as you don't mind refurbs. There are a couple really good options at $715, if you don't mind increasing the budget though. Edit Link: https://www.amazon.com/Notebook-Computer-Quad-Core-i7-6700HQ-GeForce/dp/B01MR05UO2/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1503259691&sr=1-1&keywords=asus+950m+laptop Actually the other one's price went up, so just one at $715. Proper quad core i7 and a dedicated GPU.
  6. If budget doesn't matter, go with the X34. Upgraded from a PG278Q to the X34... I'll never go back. Ultrawide FTW. Super excited for the 200hz HDR ones.
  7. Hard to say, but within a year (my guess is Q1 or 2 2018) we'll see a GTX 2080... The 2080Ti will probably be 6-8 months after that.
  8. Considering your clocks go higher the cooler you can keep your card, I think it's worth it. So long as you don't mind paying a $100 premium for good cooling. If I leave mine at stock clocks, they boost to 1920mhz. OC'd they can hit 2050 pretty easily. Though with mine being custom liquid cooled, your mileage may vary.
  9. Wasn't able to achieve any overclock on one of those monitors... but honestly an increase of 10 to 20hz from 144 won't actually be noticeable. You start getting some serious diminishing returns after about 100hz. I assure you that 144hz is completely worth it though.
  10. The ports of the more modern Final Fantasy games have all at least allowed 60fps... I think it'd be pretty safe to assume they would at least offer that. But who's to say? I want Durante to work on the port like he did for Trails of Cold Steel.
  11. I sure hope so... Trying to keep the hopes reasonable though.
  12. They have one channel with 4.4 million subs and a second with 800K.... They're probably fine.
  13. Source? http://gematsu.com/2017/06/big-final-fantasy-xv-announcements-teased-gamescom-2017 They have FFXV news, apparently. No idea if it's a PC port, even though it has been somewhat strongly suggested since the console release.
  14. Agreed with Purgent. IF Crossfire would work, the faster card would have to match the clockspeed of the slower card. It's pretty safe to say it wouldn't work at all though.
  15. My vote is the ultrawide. They're fantastic for games that support them, and pretty great for desktop use as well. If you're thinking of going Surround with the three 24"s, I would still vote for the ultrawide there as well. Swapping between Surround and normal triple screen is a big pain in the neck, unfortunately (especially if you use high refresh displays). Also, I do like my Predator x34 a lot, but the 200hz, 35", HDR versions are supposed to come out in Q4.
