That has got to be one of the most disarming and diplomatic things I've ever read(that's a compliment). Well said!

EDIT, sorry about that. No offense was intended.
Yup, to be clear, I am not happy with it at all, for it to work (force reduction) there has to be a balance between strength, technology and capability, I feel we have lost that balance with regard to strength and like anything in life, once it's gone it won't be coming back .......... until the next huge conflict by which time it is likely too late.

Ironically, just before the Falklands the Royal Marines were set to lose over 50% of their force strength along with a large part of the Amphibious assault fleet, it is of no surprise that those planned cuts were dismissed after that conflict.

Sorry not sure where to ask but I'm trying to fix a 65" lg TV that's got red blinking lights of death.

And I'm a noob with TVs btw.

My question is though the oled backlight power-. Does the Tcon board provide this?!

I love guessing games.
I'd expect at least a 50% increase in games and CPU based tasks.

Seemingly a solid one. Depends on the app/game though, but you will get a boost overall. If you were on a 3600X or 5600X I'd say stay with what you've got, but a 2600X compared to a 12700K is going to be a big jump.

50% in games, sweet

honestly that big of an upgrade gap, I expect 100% increase in some games if not 120%, I mean look at the 5600x vs the 12700k on gamersnexus, its 40 fps behind the 12700k in some games. thats insane. Intel has definitely made a comeback and quicker than anyone expected. honestly power consumption isn't the end of the world, an extra 60 watts, temps are largely unaffected, so meh.

if Intel had their rtx 3080 equivalent gpu out right now, i'd consider an all Intel build if it was at MSRP.

I guess at least i have a water loop waiting for it, so temps shouldn't be a problem.

I have 32" 1080p 165hz monitor. However awful people say it is i don't mind it at all. don't seem to notice it being pixelly as its a 32" screen at 1080p. It is a MSI one.

So i would say 1080 @ 144-160

This. The screen speed is more important when comparing 1080p to 1440p, IMHO.

After using this screen i have with high refresh rate i would never want to go back to a 60hz screen.....shudders

Right there with you. For me, it's 120hz minimum or nothing. I was at Best Buy the other day and one of the sodding nonks tried to show me a 1080p60 bigscreen. I laughed in his face.

too right i would have. it's fine going up to 1440 but it's a much bigger strain on your GPU and frame rate will drop a fair bit.

OLED LG 60hz is closer to like 80hz IPS/VA, and that scales up too. so 60hz is ok but only if you have high end LG OLED panel.

120hz OLED LG is like 165hz on any other panel.

so the 4k hit isn't as bad as you think, especially fall 2022 when we get some next gen gpu's, 4k 120 should be more common then

I think my silly old monitor is the old Samsung PLS panel. I guess PLS has been superseeded by things like AH-IPS and newer generation IPS monitors.

PLS is a still solid panel type. If you like it and don't need to upgrade to a higher resolution or refresh rate, keep it and enjoy.

Me and a few others are just refresh-rate spoiled. And we know it....

I've had a 120hz 1080p for over a decade originally for active 3d when it was first about, although 3d was awful the refresh rate and latency was great.
Then I moved to Thailand l, didn't have a computer or TV for a few years then got a 65inch 4k 60hz TV to use as a monitor.
I can notice the refresh rate on times but as I went without for years it's not so noticeable, The jump from 1080p to 4k is though! very much night and day.

It's a case of my monitor being quite long in the tooth and not having the budget to replace it with a more expensive 1440p@165hz monitor

Fair enough. But if I may be so bold, get yourself a 120+hz 4k display. The reasons are scaling and cost. 4k isn't much more expensive than a 1440p display and if you ever want to use 1080p for games to get better FPS, then the display can scale down perfectly. With 1440p scaling down to 1080p is janky and looks terrible. I speak from experience.
