LG 25UM56-P 25” Class 21:9 UltraWide IPS Gaming Monitor 5ms 2560 x 1080 5ms GTG 60Hz 5,000,000:1 Contrast Ratio with Black Stabilizer and Dynamic Action Link, SRGB Over 99% and 4-Screen Split
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Price (nabbed it for $175)
Colors on the screen
Brightness of the screen
Screen real-estate
Overclockable refresh rate (mine sits at 75Hz)
OSD is easy to use
Overall clarity of picture

*I have not used the 4-screen split feature. I cannot comment on that functional aspect of the monitor*

Cons: I have less money because of this monitor.

Other Thoughts: This thing is awesome. If you have an older monitor and are looking for an upgrade I would strongly consider this one. The first thing that I noticed about this monitor was the solid feel and overall look. The panel is non-glare, which is awesome for me because there is always a light on in the room. The bit of extra screen real-estate makes a considerable difference to my web browsing and gaming sessions.

There is one thing that I knew would happen if I were to buy this monitor. The only thing I dislike, but is NOT a con, is that I have to turn down some of the graphical settings in a few of my games. I'm running a 2GB 770 and many of my games still look good aside from more recent AAA titles. So if you don't mind a little graphics hit, or if you got to money to get this thing, I would suggest in doing so.


Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 88W BX80646I54690K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Refined Maxwell architecture
- Unlocked multiplier
- Runs cool and sips power
- Handles high bandwidth RAM
- Native SATA III support

Cons: - Not competitively priced when compared to AMD and price-to-performance ratio
- The included software offer for McAfee should have just been free since Intel owns McAfee

Other Thoughts: This is an upgrade to my i7 920 that was OC'd to 3.4Ghz. The performance improvements are for more noticeable than I anticipated. My old CPU was the bottleneck for my graphics card (Gigabyte 770 2GB).

For an example: I couldn't use SSAA in Metro:LL because it was so demanding. I thought it was my video card, but my new 4690K allows me to use 2xSSAA and it runs 45-60 FPS now O.O.


ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Cheap ($130 after MIB at time of this post).
- Supports Devils Canyon
- 8 SATA ports
- Solid build quality
- Nice ROG LED effects built-in.

Cons: - Can't do 3-way SLI/XFire
- Doesn't have many fan headers

Other Thoughts: Bought this and a 4690K as a replacement for my i7 920 and Sabertooth x58. I have been nothing but impressed with this upgrade. This is a great deal if you are looking to upgrade.
