    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yes, I noticed that. The screen was lying on a flat surface but the screw holes still didn’t quite line up. Definitely a quality control issue. But they’re in enough and it’s standing flat so it really doesn’t matter. Also I find it interesting that on the calibration report the Blue deltaE on...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Is it just me or does it look like screen is curved backwards from the center? It might be an optical illusion because my previous display was a 2015 48" Samsung 4k curved TV- made for a pretty mediocre display but it was big, this is more reasonable. I do have a few initial complains (just set...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I was planning on going OLED but Amazon was selling this yesterday morning briefly for $599 which was too good to pass up.

    I bought a used LenovoEMC PX4-400D, what should I do with it?

    Thanks for pointing this out. Yes, I can go into the bios and boot from a flash drive. I just bought a 64GB small drive so I can put it flush against the wall on a shelf. I'll give it a shot- the PX4-400D has an HDMI out which makes everything so much easier. I also have some extra DDR lying...

    https://www.karma-group.ru/upload/iblock/926/Lenovo_EMC_PX4-400D_.A1635690A6414A46B83B91ADD251650F.pdf I was looking to buy a NAS and saw one of these pop up on eBay for $100. It's EOL, and unsupported, but even though it's a little old (2014) the hardware is pretty solid- apparently it's just...

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    I'm on the queue for the cheapest 3080Ti. It's unfortunate none of their models offer 2 HDMI outputs.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    It wasn’t a review, just a commercial. He got a free display out of it.

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    I can't bring myself to spend more than MSRP. I have a 2080Ti so that will hold me over for a while (although I'd like better because I game at 4k). I guess I'll upgrade my other stuff first- my CPU (5820k) is getting a little long in the tooth- it's time I buy a new case too.

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Ok. Vizio's implementation of eARC can pass bitstreamed DTS-HD and TrueHD, but with only PCM 2.0 implementation you can't use it for proper PS5, PC or Apple TV audio (probably other streaming devices as well).

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    What's not? The TV is supposed to support eARC, it doesn't implement it properly. 7.1PCM is part of the eARC spec, LG TVs can support it.

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08MSWMXT4 Got this yesterday- it's great. It's better than my 2080Ti's built in HDMI port- I can output up to 12bit 4k/60Hz 4:4:4 YCbCr on my Samsung I use as a display. I have yet to try on my Vizio PQX mainly because of Vizio's shitty HDMI 2.1 compliance...

    HDMI 2.1 - which gpu?

    Your point being? Most games on the PS5are lucky to be running 4k/60Hz let alone 120Hz.
