  1. Hi, I'm looking for a decent IPS monitor for my friend that is around the $150 US range. Does anyone know of a good option? She just does basic social media marketing so nothing crazy is needed.
  2. I lowered the brightness on the pick until it looked accurate.
  3. sure, I'll reply with it in about 40 minutes when I get home.
  4. Yea, its jarring at first to be honest. I almost returned mine because of it, but now I don't even notice it. VA's have their black crush and slow response time, TN have their crappy colors, and IPS has IPS glow. Its unfortunately just part of the tradeoff. When they figure out micro-led or long-lasting OLED I will happily upgrade.
  5. Dennis' face when he realized he only got 16gb of ram
  6. Yep, that's how my LG ultrawide looks. You get use to it. It's not noticeable in normal/non-dark scenes right?
  7. Ambient Light Rejecting projector screen with an Ultra Short Throw projector. They apparently make daytime viewing of projectors much better, and don't require you to paint your entire room black. Would love to see an ultimate stealth gaming room with an ALR screen that rises out of the ground.
  8. You have two sticks of ram in the correct motherboard slots running dual channel right? If you do, my best guess to fix it would be clear your CMOS, reset your motherboard to factory settings, and reset windows. That is a shot in the dark and might not work though.
  9. The LG Ultragear has my vote as long as you get the nano-ips models like this one https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-27GL850-B-gaming-monitor. I have the ultrawide version of it and it is the best display I've ever owned. It has really nice color reproduction and gets decently bright. I would look for one of the ultra gears on sale.
  10. Did you uninstall the old drivers before installing the new card? You do this with a program called DDU. Download it, restart windows in safe mode, and then uninstall all the nvidia drivers. You will then need to reinstall the new drivers.
  11. Pretty much. The only RTX tech I ever use is DLSS to make games playable at 4K with 60 FPS vsync on my tv.
  12. It was added to the game. @AJ999 Ray tracing is very taxing, changing the preset might not enable or disable it. Try playing the game with custom high settings and disabling ray tracing.
  13. Of the two, the gigabyte is the one I would go with. MSI monitors use really dim panels. Even the ones that advertise higher nits don’t actually achieve it. You can check out rtings.com or hardware unboxed for good reviews.
  14. It depends on what series mobo you have. Ryzen 5000 can be undervolted in ryzen master, but the 3000 series is a bit more difficult. For 3000 you have to do it in your Bios settings, but you need to test the under volt with a benchmark before and after. Some undervolts look successful with stability on ryzen 3000 but end up actually reducing performance.
