    VESA Dual 32" Vertical Mount

    I'm looking to desk mount two 16x9 32" monitors vertically, so I bought this. Unfortunately, the highest and lowest settings for the arms aren't high and low enough for the monitors to clear. I chose that one for its weight rating of 9kg per monitor, as I'm running a PD3200U at 8.5KG and C32HG70...

    Discrete vs Integrated Sound: Latency

    Hi TPU, been a long time since I posted here. I'm not much into computers and tech any more but do still game once in a while, and in a gaming forum I frequent, the superiority of sound cards over motherboard-integrated sound was brought up. This was specifically in regards to sound quality. But...

    DAW, NLE & CAD Drives and Drive Configuration

    For those of you working with multimedia workstations in a professional or prosumer environment, what configuration of HDDs, SSDs, and RAID do you use? I'm curious about what you use for boot drives, working drives, source and result drives, and if you've done some testing to see what...

    Dealing With Difficult Game Server Admins/Leaders

    I was just banned from a CoD4 server. If you're interested, there's an ongoing thread about it at the web site for that server (get some popcorn :laugh:): http://fusiongamers.com/forum/index.php/topic,3391.0.html And I was thinking it might be interesting to swap stories and experiences...

    Game Statistics

    What's the best way to compare the number of people playing different games? In this case I'm particularly interested in comparing the number of people who play multiplayer CoD 4, MW2, Black Ops, and MW3. From Steam we have the game stats page which shows only the current day's current and...

    Afterfall $1 Pre-order

    Afterfall InSanity is a new indie game announced yesterday with an interesting approach. If 10 million people pre-order the game, everyone will get the game for $1 and 10% will go to charity. As of this posting, they have about 14,100 pre-orders. If they don't get 10 million pre-orders, well...

    JS: Detect User's Resolution, >1 Screens?

    I'm using JavaScript's screen.width and screen.height to detect the screen resolution of a web page's users. This works fine regardless of the number of monitors a user has, except in IE and Opera. IE seems to return the current screen resolution of whichever display is set in Windows as the...

    CoD4 Server Problem

    Server: Host: GameServers.com Problem: Lag spikes every 8 or 18 seconds To get a feel for the problem, go to the server and flip on your lagometer (in console [~] enter cg_drawLagometer 1) and look for the spikes. My clan got this server two years ago and until about a week...

    Calculating Video Bandwidth/Signal Frequency

    Trying to clear up a number of things here. I want to determine the exact meaning of the listed bandwidth of products like this (lists 400MHz bandwidth/2048x1536 @ 72Hz). Other products (example) list a "pixel frequency". Still elsewhere I've seen "pixel bandwidth" and "signal frequency". So...

    Lifetime of Non-Mechanical Keyboards

    I use a mechanical keyboard myself, but to help me inform my clients better, am looking for info on the lifetime of non-mechanical keyboards. Clearly mechanical keyboards (seems the switches are typically rated for 20 to 50 million operations each) should outlast non-mechanical models but I...

    Items for Sale/Trade I have three 5870s; two Diamond and one Vapor X. They are "like new"—purchased for testing and used about ten hours each. Their biggest flaws are being dusty from sitting on a shelf. I guarantee these to function 100% like new. They've been handled with care by a...

    CoD4. 4800x1200. GPU(s)?

    Bottom Line What Nvidia 400 series GPU or SLI'd GPUs could maintain a minimum 85fps framerate in CoD4 at 4800x1200 with 4x AA? Gotta be Nvidia for Folding@home. Details Due to the economics and performance of Folding@home on 400 series cards, I would prefer to SLI two or more lower-end 400s as...

    FahMon Reports Wrong Downloaded/Deadline Values

    Shipping Mistakes

    I'm smacking myself over the forehead. Back on May 26th, 2010, I ordered a HAF 932 from the Cooler Master Store (part of a larger shipment, was just stocking up on parts). CM mistakenly sent an Elite 310 instead. This can happen no matter where you order from. The sad thing is that I didn't...
