I just hope using the XMP profile on this set doesnt cause static in my audio like it does on my old skylake system.

Finally upgraded my 780 Ti to one of these- https://www.bestbuy.com/site/pny-nv...0-graphics-card-black/5838240.p?skuId=5838240

I'm pretty impressed by it. Only paid $425 for it (on sale), runs cool, OC's decently (I've gotten it a little pass 2.1 GHz without a voltage boost), and it's quieter than my EVGA 780 Ti ACX card with the fans at 100%. This was playing the new Wolfenstien game-
Installing a 500 GB Western Digital Blue 3d Nand SSD now that I bought with the money I won in @Norton WCG Captain Giveaway he just had.

Also, I forgot to mention, I got a set of Logitech Z533 speakers when I got the GTX 1070 to replace the really bad speakers I was using.

I don't think I've ever been so pissed off buying New Tech before. Dropped my Gal S4 last night, at just the wrong angle. Broke the corner off the defender case. No big deal, right? That's what it's there for, right? Nope. Shattered the screen, no display.

Razer seiren is worth more than double at retail prices here, so its a sidegrade, even if its the same/superior audio quality

it's not worth more than the double of that AT .... it's just Razer like to overprice anything with their logo on it ... (afaik the Seiren is a Blue Yeti with Razer logo on it ... )

better get a Blue Yeti Pro... nearly the same price of the non pro Seiren and it's the model above ...


short side: Razer pricing is nothing about quality or value of the product (specially if it's their own product, if OEM, then it's overpriced )

Turbo spec says 3.2 Ghz, so even if you can't flick with the multi, you should get a healthy Cinebench score :)

Seeing as the screen is not 4k, can't say how I'd do That? That is the next game on my list... That and finally playing max Payne 3

I had to be very careful to measure my desk and get the screen dimensions to be sure. It worked out and the wall mount from the side is killer. Even had to makes sure the wall mount arm was long enough for this beast. Love, love love it

Already had a 29" ultrawide before this one, so I knew it would theoretically fit, well, except for the damn stand it came with :roll:

29" is about as big a monitor i could use......My nephews both got 55 inch 4K TVs , I told the person who purchased them ,that it was a bad idea because who the hell is going to game on a television screen that big ?you can't do well on a screen of that size ,it's not an opinion it's a fact . I watched one of them playing call of duty ,and he's sitting there literally turning his head from the left and right ,where on a proper screen you only need to move your eyes.

It wasn't even a week later ,when they were asking if they could put their old monitors back .:shadedshu: But noone EVER listens to the guy whos been doing this all his life. Not to mention all the upgraded hardware you're going to require to power a 4K display. One of my nephews actually wanted me to buy him an Xbox one S because his standard Xbox one wasn't displaying in 4K resolution. How spoiled is that? :laugh::slap:Obviously I told him Hell no

i've used 46" and that was too large, 40" seems perfect on the 'big screen' side of things

imo for modern gaming, 40-42" 4K, or 27-32" 1440p seems to be the sweetspot

I need to take a pic of the mounting arm. Thankfully that was an option with the upright on the desk. I did have to carve away part of the mounting plate when I found it obstructed the majority of the ports. It's made for up to 55" screen (VESA 400x400), so no worries about bearing capacity.

Honestly, this is more comfortable than my old 24" 2405 FPW monitor. I usually sit about 3-4 from the screen, and the curve helps. I haven't played any real FPS games yet... maybe my opinion will change after that.

I managed to get a monitor arm and stuck it to my desk, and it was short enough that it wouldn't be so close to my face as it was when i bought it.

Nice, yea, post some pics. The clamp looks like a PITA unless you've got the right desk.
