Most Favorable Review

Wan't even looking for 4k, but for this price I couldn't pass it up.

LG 32UD59-B 32" 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 60hz 2 x HDMI DisplayPort Flicker Safe Anti-Glare FreeSync Height Adjustable LCD Monitor
LG 32UD59-B 32" 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 60hz 2 x HDMI DisplayPort Flicker Safe Anti-Glare FreeSync Height Adjustable LCD Monitor

Pros: -no dead pixels -full height, tilt and pan adjustment -nice clean Gui menu interface -thin bezels -Freesync -Looks beautiful and sharp. -Design has elegant clean lines.

Cons: -takes a second or two longer than some monitors to come out of sleep mode. -Display cable is only about 2 meters and can be kind of short.

Overall Review: -You need to use the display cable for full 60hz refresh-rate at 4k. HDMI will only do 30hz at 4K or 60hz on 1440p. I believe this is standard for monitors, but just beware. 30hz feels like mouse lag if you are used to higher refresh rates.Use the Display port or order another one if you need more than a meter in length. -Even at 32" size, any fixed size application will be about 2/3 the size vs. a 23/24" 1080p. You will not regret going 32" or larger. 27" or smaller would be a waste on 4k. Couldn't bee happier with this monitor for the money. I'm using it for a DAW workstation that replaced a 29" LG ultrawide screen and I can see so many more tracks and plugins on one screen or split screen.

Great looking monitor for the money!

ASUS VC239H 23" Full HD 1920 x 1080 D-Sub, DVI, HDMI Built-in Speakers Flicker Free Ultra-low Blue Light IPS Monitor
ASUS VC239H 23" Full HD 1920 x 1080 D-Sub, DVI, HDMI Built-in Speakers Flicker Free Ultra-low Blue Light IPS Monitor

Pros: IPS with very good color and picture looks almost as good as my higher end LG model right next to it. Matches perfectly next to a 29" 21:9 widescreen format monitor. (height and resolution)

Cons: Navigating the menu could be a little easier, but doesn't get used much after initial setup.

Overall Review: Got this on Sale for a great price and almost makes me want to get 2 more to have a three monitor surround setup again.

Got a 2nd 7950 - Crossfire!

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100352-2L
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100352-2L

Pros: So I have 2 running now and more is better....right? Yes it is! The crossfire is really smooth with "Never Settle Drivers" (12.11 beta) Wish I could say that I'm getting exactly double the FPS, but have to take a slight hit to the overclock with 2. So I'm running them at 1000c and 1400m with 10% on power slide. Still wondering what would happen with an over volt and if my balls where bigger! I'm getting about 185% of what one 7950 oc was giving me. Still so worth it on 2560 x 1440.

Cons: Had to change my shorts after I first started playing with 2x 7950 in crossfire. Ooops!

Overall Review: Don't expect 1200v, 1600m when running in crossfire without water cooling them.

6870 x2 Crossfire

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity GV-R687OC-1GD
GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity GV-R687OC-1GD

Pros: Have two 6870 in Crossfire and running 4800 x 900 eyefinity smooth as butter with High on most games. I can even run BF3 on high but get a little better action on Med. if just using one 1920x1080 I can run high all day. I'm not trying to overclock because of the locked voltage, but wouldn't give me much gain anyway. I'm not sure what some of these noobs are complaining about. I don't get any tearing or artifacting. For a $200 card these are pretty sweet. Take out a tape measure before you buy this. Not the cards fault it is large. They all are now. Completely happy I went with these. Have always had good luck with gigabyte

Cons: Would be nice to have an unlocked voltage and more vram since I ended up going crossfire. If you don't crossfire you will be fine.
