  1. So if I'm truly worried about that my best bet would be to get 4K, so everything scales perfectly?
  2. So for a game that presumably has UI assets designed around 1080p (and aren't vectors), would they look aliased or blurry playing at 1440p?
  3. Shouldn't scaling to an odd factor of 25% or 75% create blurry text?
  4. I have an LG 27UK650 right now but I was looking to get an upgrade to 144Hz, and I've gone through two XG27AQs before giving up on them, a Gigabyte G27Q, and an LG 27GN850-B, and they all look absolutely horrid compared to my old 4K60 monitor. Do they just bin the panels super low for so-called "gaming" monitors? I do take take into account that they are different resolutions, and even then. They just look bad overall.
  5. I got one used and it came with the stand detached and no screws, seller said to use 13.4mm Phillips #1 screws, which brings up no results. What exactly am I looking for? Some results say M4 but I see different types of M4 screws available.
  6. Got them, tried them out, and honestly I think I might be doing something wrong. The G3 sounds just as low as my line-in.
  7. Dell has them at a good price. I'll grab them from there. Hopefully they work out well since they can be used anywhere.
  8. I did and they are much louder, although I do hear a little more static/noise . @Tigerleon recommended the Soundblaster G3 as a budget option, and at $60 CAD, they look great. Should I bother or just tough it out with the HyperX card?
  9. The G3 looks nice, and is only $60 as well, which is great. Thing is, they already sound loud enough with my phone, so I'd only really be using the G3 for my PC. Still worth it? I don't really see myself ever spending more than like $150 CAD on headphones anyway. Also, worth it despite me already having the Hyper X USB sound card?
  10. So out of curiosity I connected the SHPs to the Hyper X Cloud 2 USB sound card and they are much, much louder without any (at least to me), decrease in quality. So loud in fact that I feel more comfortable at 90% volume in Windows rather than the 100% sounding too low when I was using line-in. Maybe I should invested into a decent USB dongle sound card?
  11. So the reality is I'm likely just too used to the louder volume provided by my old headphones. Oh well, probably better for my hearing in the long run...
  12. It's mostly people complaining about audio issues despite the good hardware. I experienced the same too with the drivers provided on Asus' site, so I just went back to the basic audio driver. I tried the front jack too out of curiosity, but that was full of interference and sounded much lower. To clarify, the phone volume isn't a lot louder, but just noticeable.
  13. I mean my old Hyper X Cloud 2s used an external USB sound card and they were much louder, albeit lower quality. Could the fact that I'm using the basic Windows audio driver have an effect on this? If not, then I should just get used to it?
  14. It's more like I'm just used to louder volume. My phone (Galaxy A70) drives them at a higher volume, so it just had me wondering. Apparently my board has an impedance sensor too. Would it also make a difference if I'm using the basic Windows audio driver? Official ones from Asus are terrible for this board.
  15. Just got them and although the sound is incredibly clear and very crisp aside from some muddy bass, but they sound a decent bit lower than my old headphones (Hyper X Cloud IIs w/ included USB sound card). I'm using the built-in audio on my motherboard (Z370 Maximus X Hero). I tried them on my phone and they are a bit louder, though the quality isn't as nice. It's just odd to me as I thought 32Ohm was quite low and that a high-end board like this should at the very least power them nicely. Could also be I'm just too used to listening loudly. Should I bother with an AMP or a sound ca
