    posted a message on 21:9 monitors

    So, I'm looking to purchase a 21:9 monitor, 29'' because that's all that fits on my desk atm. I'd use it for movies, gaming (csgo specifically), and a dash of photo editing.


    Im just not sure which one to get.

    I'm coming from an lg 23'' ips monitor, some pretty standard stuff. It's got some bad ghosting though, almost like built in motion blur for games.

    This is one looks particularly interesting, I like the design and curve. Not sure about the VA panel though, I don't know if deep blacks are a bad trade off for bad response times (unless va panels have gotten better as of late). Says its got a 4ms response time.



    http://m.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-29UM57-P-ultrawide-led-monitor

    This one has some gaming features, an ips panel, and a 5ms response time. The design and stand don't match my white, squarish desk.


    I watch a lot of movies so the 21:9 is a big selling point for me.

    I can't quite afford or have space for a 34''



    I'm leaning towards the Samsung but my only concern is ghosting and response time, even though it has a lower one on the specs page.


    Thanks for any help in advance. :)


    i typed this on my iPhone, sorry for any misspellings.

    Hey, dark here and was wondering if somebody could make me some sweet channel art! I usually play Minecraft, CS:GO, racing games, so incorporate all of those. I would like it to be "animated" as in, a similar style to my avatar picture. The YouTube name is "SonicSourcez" (new channel). Thanks, in advance ~Dark

    Two monitors to consider, if you live in the US. I have a Catleap, can confirm it is damn well worth the price. Doesn't OC to 120Hz, mind you, but as a 27" 1440p IPS monitor, it's amazing value.

    There's a good deal of info on Korean monitors here, if you so wish to read it.

    I'll check it out!

    Really, it's my personal opinion that anything over 24" is too big for 1080p, and anything under 28" is too small for 4k. It's really up to you. I haven't done enough research into 4k monitor to give a great opinion.

    I definitely agree with the fact the 24" is the maximum size for 1080p. I might just go with the brand new 27" Dell 4k monitor. It looks to be up to the standards of the other ultrasharp displays, unlike Dell's 28" 4K monitor that was only 30hz.

    I still stick by my suggestion, it's the best monitor I've ever bought, it's pretty cheap too. Just the on-board speakers are absolutely horrid. Even then I bought a set of £7 speakers from logitech and they're amazing

    I have got a friend with this monitor. The color quality and accuracy is not on par with my current monitor (24" LG 1080p). I need something that is preferably sleep and thing (just to look nice on my desk). Like I said earlier, gaming is not my main intention.

    Gaming is not my main intention. A 980 still struggles at 4K even. I will be doing graphics in photoshop, some light video editing, and some gaming (at 1080p, of course)

    Try to answer these questions to the best of your ability:

    1.What is a good size for 4K though? 24" or 27?"

    2. Dell IPS monitor ($699) or Samsung TN monitor ($499-550)?

    I've been pondering the idea for a while, what about 4K monitors? Two really stand out.

    Dell 27' UHD 4K Monitor [IPS;60Hz;4K;9-14ms]
    P2715Q

    Samsung 28" UHD Monitor [TN;60Hz;4K;1ms]

    First things first, for 4K, what is a good size? 24" or 27"?

    Next, is the Dell worth the extra money ($100) because of the IPS?

    Finally, this will be used for gaming, graphic stuff, and just general use.

    I went with the EVGA Hadron Air. A little pricy ($140), but I have had no problems with it so far! It comes with an included 500w PSU, which is why the price is high for a case.

    The only thing I don't like is that when I start the computer up, the PSU makes a whirring noise, for about 1 second. It happens every time upon boot up, and I am sure that it is not a defect.
    What I am interested in seeing, is if I can remove the hard drive cage and put an SFX PSU in there.



    If you can get your hands on one (Not sure if they are still selling them) Is the NCASE M1. That would be my Mini-ITX case of choice.

    I would NEVER play a game on 2 monitors, a single monitor is good (crosshair would be in the middle. I would need the second for doing other tasks and extending tasks. So I should go with a 1440p? I just want the monitors to look good on my desk :P

    Hey! I need your help!

    So, I have recently built myself a new Mini-ITX gaming/editing/graphics rig! I am in need for 2 monitors. They will be side by side, no mount. I am big on looks, so edge to edge glass or slim bezel is preferred. I am not sure which size I would like, 24 or 27. I feel like 27 would be more suitable for my needs, as video editing and graphics work usually need quite a bit of screen real-estate. I would like to hear what you think!

    Specs:

    i7-4770 (Non K, because I do not plan on OC'ing a mini itx rig)
    8GB Corsair ram (I forgot wich kind, silly me :P )
    Reference GTX 770
    1000GB HD
    128GB
    OS: Windows 10 preview, on a partition, windows 8 on main partition.

    I am confident that my computer can easily drive two monitors.

    Monitors:

    Dell 27 Monitor - S2740L
    http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&sku=225-3894

    This one is a looker for sure, edge to edge glass, attractive stand. 7ms response time is tolerable for me, as I do not play hardcore FPS games often. I would assume that this monitor has good colors as Dell makes great professional monitors, not sure if that carries over to this one. The one thing I am not sure about is, is 1080p okay on a 27 inch monitor? I hope so, most 2560x1440p monitors fall into around to $500 range..

    AOC- 27" I2757FH
    http://us.aoc.com/monitor_displays/i2757fh

    I like the look of this one decently, It has a 5ms response time. I don't think the color calibration will be as good as the Dell though.. It is still 1080p though.

    Rumors

    I hear Dell is coming out with a 27 inch 2560x1440 Slim bezel monitor, but is probably going to go for $550, which is to much to buy two monitors.

    I want to hear what you guys think? Any tips, suggestions, and comments?

    posted a message on Minecraft: Vita Edition Release Date Discussion
    I would be happy with the September release as that commercial suggested. August is basically over now, I am thinking mid September. This is of course only speculation. Why can't they just release Minecraft Playstation Vita Edition now!

    Some more speculation, I would assume that updates will be coming at a much slower rate, as 4j Studios now has 5 consoles to work on instead of 2.

    Yeah, I hope the bug gets fixed soon! This is the best shader pack IMO because it looks great and has better performance then most other shader packs!

    So, The 1.05 shaders is having a few glitches for me currently.

    First of all, I am on a Late 2013 Macbook Pro 13" with Intel 5100 graphics.

    I had had many glitches with the 1.03 "Intel" shader pack. The 1.05 Lite shader pack actually has better performance and less glitches (for me) then the 1.03 intel.

    The main issue I am having with both shader packs is a "transparent triangle flicker". Thats the best way I can describe it. Some shadows and tall grass flicker too.
    This issue is in both 1.03 and 1.05.

    Here are some pictures:
    The first two are of the issue, and the last 3 are examples of outside, where the1.05 shader pack works flawlessly, except for some flickering shadows and grass.

    Quote from JohnOptegrove

    You obviously don't understand. The TJ08 is built specifically for tower CPU coolers and centrifugal (read: reference) GPU thermal solutions. Throwing an aftermarket 280X in there is completely pointless and isn't what the enclosure isn't designed for. If you want that go with a Prodigy.

    I already bought the reference 770 anyways, good thing I did. They are not in stock anymore.
