I've been looking at upgrading my old ViewSonic for something more flashy and gamer-grade, namely a 4k IPS GSync monitor. A few of them were announced back in July - including some magnificent (on paper) monitors from Asus and Acer, both using IPS panels and utitlizing latest and greatest from NVidia - the GSync technology. Since then, little was revealed about when said units may be available to the end-user. According to various speculations, the dates range from September 2015 to early 2016. Conducting my regular search on e-tailers websites such as Newegg and Amazon i couldnt help but notice that there are many monitors utilizing AMD's Freesync are already on the market. So, that really makes me wonder - what's the catch? Why do they make us wait? I, personally, am an Asus fanboy and hence, waiting on the IPS GSync monitor by that particular manufacturer although at this point i would gladly settle for a 34" Acer predator, if it was available with GSync. The Freesync verision is out there already, and considering that it works ONLY with AMD cards i assume it helps AMD rack up some money. Could someone explain that to me?
HI! I have never have been familiar with notebooks but I bought one for office use (it's able to game a bit as well), an Acer V552G All this to ask : How of a pain is it to swap the sold HDD in said notebook for a SSD (I don't mind about space) knowing that I only have a USB stick with the Windows 8 installation on it. I must add that I bought full retail Windows DVD for my other computers at home. So doing the swap, would I need a store tech to install it for me (knowing I only got Windows 8 on that specific USB stick), could I simply install Windows with that stick, or would I need to format and install Win 7 from one of my DVD's and then upgrade to Win 8? Thanks!
