  1. Hello! I own a BenQ PD2700U 4K UHD (3840x2160) monitor. Though the monitor is generally great, it has one issue: the image doesn’t fully fit horizontally on the screen, resulting in 2 thin fuzzy strips on the left & right edges of the panel. If I reduce the horizontal resolution from 3840 to 3802, I remove the issue, but the 10-bit color space drops to 8-bit. Is there a way to drop the resolution, and also maintain the 10-bit color space?
  2. Yeah. It’s a good comparison. In the end, I’ve made my decision: I’ll go with the BenQ PD2700U. It’s a good quality monitor, highly reviewed on YouTube and it’s FreeSync compatible.
  3. Thank you guys for replying. The idea is that I’d like to know opinions about the 3 models that I listed earlier from someone that owns one of them.
  4. Thanks for replying. The idea is that I don’t want a gaming monitor. I want a 27” 4K IPS professional, calibrated, color accurate, monitor at about $500.
  5. UPDATE: Hello! Like I said earlier, I bought a Dell P2415Q 24” 4K monitor. I was thrilled as I got it, but about 2 weeks later I noticed that the screen had some faint horizontal grey lines on the center of the display. That monitor got replaced by another one, of the same model, that had the same issue. Finally I’ve got my money back. Now I’m looking forward to buy one of these 27” 4K monitors: 1. BenQ PD2700U; 2. ViewSonic VP2768-4K; 3. Dell U2720Q. Can anyone make a recommendation?
  6. Thank you guys. Now I understand, GDDR ain’t as DDR, to see frequency/2, but it’s frequency/4.
  7. Hello! I purchased the following used graphics card: Nvidia Asus GeForce CERBERUS-GTX1050TI-A4G (4GB GDDR5). The official specs say that this graphics card’s memory runs at 7008MHz, but in GPU-Z I see only 1752MHz. That’s just a quarter of the advertised speed! Am I missing something here? What is the real speed of this memory?
  8. Deli, that depends on the depth of your desk. In my case a 27” monitor would’ve been too big. I would’ve rotated my eyes from an edge to the other of the panel, especially when doing actual work (not gaming or watching media stuff).
  9. Hello! I recently purchased a new PC monitor: Dell P2415Q (4K, UHD, 23.8”, 3840x2160 @60Hz). This monitor is amazing! It has crystal clear image, with great colour accuracy, good contrast, and the best monitor stand I know of. SCALING IN WINDOWS 10: •As you can imagine, the display is being scaled by Windows by default at 200% (recommended), so items won’t look too small. •All Windows 10 & Microsoft Office tools will take advantage of the scaling immediately. •New programs will take advantage of the scaling immediately. •

  11. UPDATE: I, finally, bought the Dell P2415Q UHD 4K monitor. It’s everything I ever wanted from a monitor: incredible image quality, sharpness, brightness, and beautiful colours, completed by an exceptional monitor stand. I recommend this one!
  12. Yeah. Basically, when I started looking for a monitor, I didn’t really knew what to look at. I just wanted to replace my old 18.5” DVI-D connection monitor with one that will have good contrast, clarity, brightness and colours. But I thought that those parameters are being influenced by response time and refresh rate too. Later I found out that cd/m2, high resolutions and PPI density deliver those sharp images.
  13. Yeah, some details will be too small in 4K, but at 2560x1440 @60Hz I should have very clear looking images on my screen.
  14. My use case is generally music production, web browsing and media... Yes, I’ll probably use it at 2560x1440 @60Hz resolution.
  15. Thanks man! You opened my eyes about this resolution thing. Prior to our discussion, I had no idea that a 24” monitor can have a higher resolution than 1920x1080. The monitor that I want to buy now is this one: Dell 24 Ultra HD 4K Monitor - P2415Q (23.8”, 16:9, 3840x2160 @60Hz, 10-bit panel, 185.12 PPI, 300cd/m2, Colour support 1.07 billion).
  16. What is the other monitor that you are using (the 1440p 24” one)?
  17. You mean a 27” monitor? Because I like it smaller. 24.5” is ideal for me. (My current monitor is just 18.5”)
  18. Hello guys! Which monitor would you choose between these two: Asus TUF VG259QM vs. Dell Alienware AW2521HF? Both have flat, IPS, 24” panels, 1ms response time, 240Hz refresh rate (Asus can be overclocked to 280Hz). Did any of you have experience with these monitors?
  19. Hello! My motherboard is Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master, and my CPU is Intel Core i7-9700K. My PCIe lanes are gen 3.0 x16. Question: Would my system bottleneck my GPU if I’d buy this GPU: Gigabyte Aorus AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT (GV-R57XTAORUS-8GD), which has PCIe 4.0 x16 connection?
  20. Thank you! Yes, by running the render test, the bus interface changes to: PCIe x16 3.0 @ x16 3.0.
  21. Hello! My graphics card is Palit GeForce GT 640 1GB, and it should normally run at PCIe 3.0 x16, but when I look into BIOS it says: PCIe 3.0 x16 @ PCIe 1.0 x16. In Windows 10, GPU-Z says: PCIe x16 3.0 @ PCIe x16 1.1. My PC: 1. Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Master (Latest BIOS version: F11c) 2. CPU: Intel i7-9700K 3. 32GB DDR4-2666 Is there a way to make it run at PCIe 3.0 x16?
  22. Hello! I’ve learned something new today about ImDisk program. It has an option to allocate memory dynamically. So with other words, after assigning a size for the RAMDisk partition (8GB for example), the PC won’t keep all of that memory amount unavailable for the system. The only amount unavailable for the system will be the amount of occupied space located on the RAMDisk partition. https://www.ghacks.net/2014/01/26/create-dynamic-ramdisk-imdisk-toolkit/
  23. I know that your advice is theoretically the safest, but I’ll keep using the RAM solely because: 1. It’s faster; 2. I’ll wear out my SSD less; 3. Linus keeps the same setting; 4. I never had errors or issues... so far But thanks anyway.
  24. I’ve set my Paging File to “None”, meaning 0 MB (Linus’s advice), so it always uses the RAM.
