ASUS PB287Q Black 28

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a rather large monitor. While TN based monitors are a bit outdated this one does not disappoint. It seems a little on the dark side (as in it seems as if it isn't bright enough) but its quite easy on the eyes after using it for a while. Cranking that resolution up to the max is amazing, but know that you'll likely need a magnifying glass to read the text on the screen unless you have great vision. I, myself, had to increase the ui and text size of windows 8.1 just to read stuff without straining. This monitor shines in gaming. With most PC's not capable of handling 4k gaming you can easily play games at 1440p on this monitor and still be very happy. I tested my rig at 4k with a decent 30fps and it was amazing. Things looked very crisp and clear, almost real.

Cons: The menu buttons on the rear of this monitor is its huge downfall. They are pretty difficult to use. I would much rather have something on the front. As was mentioned in several reviews around the web, the colors on this monitor may seem weird for a couple days but you wont notice them after some use. The reds threw me off a little for a bit.

Other Thoughts: With this being a budget monitor this thing has top of the line features like height adjust, tilt, and rotate so naturally I got giddy. I then saw the price, even better. Dollar for dollar this monitor is worth the price paid. One thing to remember, if you want 60Hz you need a DP 1.2 cable and have to turn on the 60Hz feature in the menus of the monitor.

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 290X 100361-8GVXSR 8GB GDDR5 PCI-E Video Card Tri-X OC Version (UEFI)

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It can play anything you throw at it. With 4k gaming being the next big thing this card is a step in the right direction. I've tested games at 4k resolutions and surprisingly on high or ultra settings I was getting 30 frames per second. I figure this is due to the metric ton of data being pushed through one card and getting bottle necked. I will be getting a second to run in cross-fire. I have a mobo that isn't PCI-e 3.0 so I'm sort of throttled but it still plays new games at 1440p on ultra settings at 60fps or better only dropping to maybe 59 under a huge load.

Cons: None, this is an impressive card.

Other Thoughts: This thing is huge, really really huge. It is longer than your typical card. So be aware of that. I have a full-size tower and it has very little room. After over a month of using it and putting it through it's paces having one of these beasts isn't enough for 4k gaming so if you plan on doing 4k gaming get a second if you can. As was pointed out in a question I had asked in the Q&A section, if wanting a second one of these you might want a PSU with a minimum of 1300w.
