  1. I actually just switched from a 4K Monoprice back to a 1080p, I went with a $249 Asus https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236722 24" 144hz. It preforms spectacularly in games and OS operations. I don't play movies on my PC either, but I did test one out and it was decent, but too bright. I don't have the settings adjusted for movies though, just games. I picked it up at Fry's, and while I was there I could have sword I saw a similar version in 28", but I might have been in a daze form all the technological goodness there.
  2. I've never seen this product before, after talking a look it seems like a good idea. You would still need to be as efficient as possible with the cable routing, since most PCs blow in from the front, this might get in the way if the cables are still bulky, but I can't imagine it would make much of a difference. I like the idea of how the inside of the case would look with these in use.
  3. I switched to 4K for my gaming rig early this year, and my laptop is a Mac Book Pro mid-2015 with a 4K retina display.
  4. I say 25 years in distribution and logistics in the Vegas bottling plant.
  5. Thanks all. I just got Doom and playing at 4K with almost everything on Ultra I'm only able to obtain about 40-50fps. It just kind of irks me, I was hoping to see a steady 60fps. But now I'm just being picky.
  6. It's happened again. Just we complete a new top-end rig, they pull a new graphics card out of Santa's bag. I'm contemplating selling my 2 980s and buying 2x 1080s, but wanted to gather the communities input first. Would it even be worth it to sell them at this point? They're only 3 months old, lol.
  7. You've already successfully dual-booted with Win XP and Win 10, which is good. But, my most concerning thing is the XP. I would suggest starting from scratch, and eliminating both partitions, concentrating on one installation. Can you back up any important docs/pics/mp3s and wipe your HDD?
  8. The completed workstation. Now I just need some wall art.
  9. Just finished putting this together. Daniel Defense upper, generic lower with an Eotech HWS & G33 3xMagnifier.
  10. I like it. I would recommend the Corsair H100i GTX closed loop water cooler for the CPU, it's about $30 more than the air-cooled unit you have selected. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181090
  11. This is what I chose for my system, started with 16gb, and decided that finding another 16 on Amazon for $119, I now have 32gb =)

  13. Finished the build except for some cable management. Only two issues: 1. Having trouble entering the BOIS, the keyboard is not responding till after POST, probably try a different port or an older PS/2 KB. 2. OS (10 pro 64) not seeing 250gb SSD or 4TB HDD, suspect either incompatibility with SATA ports/lanes since I have M.2 working and 2x GPUs.
  14. Just out of cost.My question is why not just the 950,maybe a bigger one? What's the 850 for?Brilliant machine other than that confusing part What is the PC equivalent to trigger happy? LOL
  15. Bought a new Springfield 1911, Loaded Stainless Steel.
  16. My 2016 build will be my first complete new build. I have done many builds in the past for clients, but never for my self. Like most of us, I re-used my old parts to keep cost down. Not this time! This time I'm going big. And, in the words of Hammond, "Spared no expense." Without further adieu, I list my specs: Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236399 ASUS PB287Q Black 28" 4K UHD 1ms 10-bit HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor height&Pivot adjustable 300 cd/m2 100,000,000:1 Video Card (2x): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487142 EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-4995-KR 6GB SC+ GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling w/ Free Installed Backplate Graphics Card Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128835 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117559 Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I76700K Desktop Processor Intel
  17. Wishing all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
  18. The last decade has seen such a shift towards mobile technology, I think it would be a great idea to bring that into the mix!
  19. I get quite a few deliveries from Amazon that ship in an over case, then in an Amazon brand box. Chances are though that the TV would ship in a manufacturer box, but with delivery being by DHL special carrier for added protection.
