  1. I got an r10 a few months ago. Been waiting for a couple years trying to save up for a new machine, only to have all the stars align during the pandemic. Was dreaming of building a magic box, but oh well. Alienware, when you can get a discount (I think dell has summer deals now) is a good deal. I am happy with my purchase. Got a 5950 with 3070. Figured over time I can do updates to it to keep it running over the next few years. The only really bad proprietary pain points are the mother board and power supply. Power supply I think is needed for it's swinging arm action, and the mot
  2. In the end i did end up ordering an IPS monitor (gigabyte M27Q). Thanks everyone for the help, even if my end choice was nothing I asked about, but rather the result of a research rabbit hole that took more hours of my waking thought than I'd rather admit to my SO. One thing that did finally push me to an IPS option was seeing examples of black smearing. Thanks again everyone.
  3. Did you end up getting it? I just saw that it is back on sale and was thinking of ordering it.
  4. I always wondered about ips view angles argument. If the monitor is at my desk, arms length in front of my face, how much of a viewing angle do I really need? Thanks for all the advice. Sounds like when it comes to monitors, spending a bit more for a brand/trusted name is worth it.
  5. I've been using my 3070 on my cheap $90 hd monitors for a while now, and decided that the next big upgrade would be my monitor. I had set a budget of about $300usd, willing to go up to $400 if it's really worth it. I also wanted to wait till primeday sales, but increasing cost in tvs is making me worried that monitor sales might not be a thing this year, or they might just go up. 2 examples I'm looking at: Sceptre Curved 27 inch QHD - (C275B-QWD168) - $329usd - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08Z38L765/?coliid=I26P4UW55CJKXI&colid=1W1EUDBTT9LYI&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_i
  6. I'm in a similar boat. I was looking at the Sceptre C275B-QWD168. I'm interested in the msi model Stahlmann recommended above, but if the monitor is sitting in front of me at a desk, do i need IPS panels? Are VA dark blacks a better ROI at a desk? It's not much more, but what am I overlooking when considering the cheaper Sceptre vs the MSI at this price range?
