  1. https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/asus/tuf-gaming-vg27wq1b Apparently color accuracy is rather good out the box. Try using the same profile they did. "Color Space (sRGB)" As for eye strain. This monitor has a flicker free backlight so it may be that ur used to PWM backlight. Alternatively its just down the the brightness and contrast as ur old monitor was a TN panel it would have been dull with poor contrast. You'll get used to it but it can take many months. If u have the displays BFI enabled, perhaps that is causing eye strain as it e
  2. Select the HDMI input ur using and change the icon to 'PC' and enable HDMI Ultra Deep Color for that input. Settings are found from the 'home dashboard'. https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/b9-oled/settings#gaming
  3. Update the B9's firmware. it should be HDMI 2.1 compatible and allow 4k 120hz HDR. I've seen confirmations that V5.00.02 or newer is good.
  4. This is a perfect example of why people should purchase a calibrator, budget displays are not properly calibrated, they only use a base default calibration out of the factory which is usually terrible. Only displays which come with an actual calibration report, are individually calibrated out of hte box. A X-Rite i1 Display Pro or SpyderX calibration device along with DisplayCAL software can be used to calibrate the displays via a Windows ICC profile.
  5. See if anything in the list that meets ur requirements is available in ur location within budget. https://www.rtings.com/user/ratings/ABkArd5QEMduIA The Gigabyte G34WQC is $399 and is 3440 x 1440 at 34", 144hz. Effectively a wider 2560 x 1440 27" display. Its actually really good for the price. https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/gigabyte/g34wqc
  6. Your running 4:2:0 chroma subsampling. Thats how. See the tables to for bandwidth limits. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI Also , while u may be running a HDMI 2.1 cable, the 1080ti does NOT have HDMI 2.1 output.
  7. Likely a dead subpixel. Specifically the green one, which is why when u try to display white , it looks pink. Problem with dead pixels is that most warranties have a specific policy in regards to them. Like how many it takes before they deem it a defect and their location. Yours is a single pixel in a corner, its unlikely to be deemed suitable for cover under warranty.
  8. The point many are missing, for obvious reasons .... is that the reason given by Amazon for revoking services and ending contract vs Parler ...are being replicated on Twitter all the damn time. Twitter having recently entered into contract with Amazon for services is to benefit from this, in addition Parler was in the midst of a massive boost in users flocking away from Twitter. Theres a reason there is a legal case filed by Parler vs Amazon (AWS), so regardless of ur opinion on what it was like on Parler, the 'reasons' given by Amazon should be held against Twitter equally an
  9. Parler isnt/wasnt a 'cesspool', it was a free speech platform, (with moderation of openly illegal content), in competition with Twitter. Just like Twitter there are ..'unsavory'..individuals that use it, the primary difference is that Twitter openly censors those of particular views whilst leaving equally 'unsavory' views of the opposing 'mindset' alone.... Parler does not, and because that ..it is no more. The 'leak' was a data dump of publicly available information prior to its 'canceling' .
  10. A family member recently ask for help finding a new PC display to replace their very old CCFL LCD TV they had been using for years. While they are by no means a Display enthusiast, nor do they have perfect sight, i am and i do, so I made sure they got something good for their budget. The Dell S3220DGF is a VA panel display close to 3000:1 contrast, now im used to Plasma, and while the LCD cant match a good Plasma black level, it was to me still pritty good all thing considered. IMO i wouldnt settle for IPS black levels. They ARE grey, and their glow (both the corne
  11. A 3400G system would be better than using the GT1030. A 3400G costs around $160 A B450 Motherboard around $100 16gb (2x8) of 3200mhz or faster RAM should be in the region of $70. Now, if ur PSU is good quality, u should be fine re using it and ur old case, SSD, and any HDD u have. So for roughly $330 u can update the base system, save the rest of the cash for a future GPU. You wont need to use the GT 1030, the Vega 11 inside in the CPU will be better.
  12. MicroLED is no where near miniaturized enough for Monitor sized displays MiniLED sure ..but not MIcroLED.
  13. "individual dimming of its pixels" Also known as working OLED pixels Trust The Verge to quote something like that. The problem with LG releasing this size OLED as a 'Ultra Fine' professional monitor ..its going to be crazy expensive. Somewhat ironically, for professional use an OLED isnt the best choice unless ur in a position to buy a new one every year. Professional hours of use with static UI's in professional applications will undoubtedly lead to burn-in. That said, it probably would go down the same way if they aimed it at gamers, with the v
  14. Due to limited production, scalpers, and once again Crypto miners, what ever does come will be next to impossible to snag one without paying way over MSRP. MSRP which will likely be above current cards, not in place of them like 10 series and earlier. So i'd suggest u hold of til next gen and hope competition drives prices back down, and the general economy and society returns to some sense of normality to allow for better availability.
