    100% agree, would not by an OLED online, want local protection. In the end I chose Microcenter over Best Buy however, Microcenter actually has accident insurance with their warranty. Even if I drop the display, they replace it.

    Which Gaming monitor? LG 42 C2? AW3423? Or AW3821?

    I have had my C2 42 for a month now and every other monitor in the house looks like crap. The contrast on this thing is beyond belief, I do not even run HDR in most games, the difference is still amazing. I considered the 34" display as I enjoy ultrawide gaming sometimes. I went into Radeon...

    ASUS 25" 500hz TN panel

    This is very much a "specialty" monitor. The target is competitive gamers and unless you're playing at a pro level, or think you are, this monitor makes no sense.

    Down to Two Options (FV43U vs FO48U)

    Okay I am down to two choices I am looking at for my new display. The Gigabyte AORUS FV43U for $699 or the AORUS FO48U for $999. Both will fit on my desk without an issue (96"x30" :) ) I am just not sure if the OLED is worth the extra $300 (almost 50%). The FV43U has been rated well for contrast...

    Decisions Decisions

    I have found a couple of desk mounts that offer some level of control and can handle the weight of a 48" TV.

    Decisions Decisions

    I have been looking at the Acer, Gigabyte and Asus models and the Gigabyte seems to be the best reviewed. Lighting in my room is a none issue as the room is fairly dark and I get next to no sunlight in here, yes I know that is sad. The window in the room is directly behind me so I use wood...

    Decisions Decisions

    My current desk is 80cm but I am looking at a new top that is 100cm so I should be okay for size.

    Decisions Decisions

    So I am right now fighting myself as I decide on a new monitor. I want to move to 4K but older eyes means the need for a larger display. I am debating the 43" displays out there right now as well as a 48" OLED. This will be 100% for computer use; from web browsing, to office work, to a lot of PC...

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    The actual game play is not the load issue for most larger events. The big issue is the game updating where you have 100+ PCs at once hammer a network at full load to get a bunch of Steam updates. Steam caching servers help a lot with this.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Started some old games the other day. Back playing Pillars of Eternity and also eyeballing the enhanced versions of Baldur's Gate and Nverwinter Nights.

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    There is no doubt that this has had a negative impact on the LAN Party. However, internet gaming still lacks to true interpersonal experience of the LAN event. While LAN Parties have shrunk, I feel like the core of these parties is more hard core than ever. A LAN Party is not about gaming...
