umm charlie.....you really shouldn't call peoples hardware POS....and you should research abit before you do at the very least
If you're trying to decide among televisions, you may be considering both the Dynex - 32" Class / 720p / 60Hz / LCD HDTV and the Samsung - 22" / 720p / LED-LCD HDTV. Based on input from thousands of users, we've learned that ports, audio and picture quality are the most important considerations for choosing between televisions. When we compared these two televisions, the Dynex - 32" Class / 720p / 60Hz / LCD HDTV completely dominated, out-performing the Samsung - 22" / 720p / LED-LCD HDTV in ports, audio and picture quality. These televisions are actually not all that different from one another, and which is best for you ultimately depends on who you are and what you value in televisions. (read more)
the point is..in todays monitor and tv market...alot are made by the same manufacturers and just rebranded...and model to model they vary in quality and performance...just saying those are strong words...be like me saying you have alot of room to talk...your using a POS dell...right?...just isin't curtious...just a thought
I love your expert analysis: reading "input from thousands of users". I read expert reviews of TVs & monitors and went to Best Buy to actually observe the differences. What I found was that my 720P Samsung TV I bought beats Dynex's best 1080P LED TV. My TV actually looked better than many TVs on display. I think 99% of people would agree that Samsung TVs have better picture quality than Dynex TVs no matter how you want to slice it. Let's be honest; no one buys Dynex for their "superb picture quality".
Yes, it's pretty obvious that many of the TV manufacturers use the same suppliers for their parts. But, obviously, it's how they BUILD the TV that makes the difference. That's why you see videophiles buy Sony and Samsung TVs. That's why you see harcore gamers pay over $500 for a 24" Dell UltraSharp. You saying "these televisions are actually not all that different from one another" and "in todays monitor and tv market...alot are made by the same manufacturers and just rebranded" made absolutely no sense to me. It's pretty obvious that Samsung doesn't make Dynex HDTVs, and Dynex doesn't make Sony TVs, and Sharp doesn't make Panasonic TVs, and etc. It's hilarious that you said I haven't done my research when it is prettly obvious you haven't done yours.
Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you by saying "output is a POS". LOL. I think you missed my point: what good is a 6990 when you are outputing it to a 480P CRT. BTW, it's spelled "courteous". Are you the majority shareholder of Dynex stock?

Wow "dude". NO WHERE did you mention you wanted anything but a new motherboard. But people are suggesting you spend your money on something else because most people are not willing to pay $250 for 250MHz; It's not the early 90s anymore. There is obviously a difference between 720p & 1080p (look at any game benchmark; the FPS decreases for a reason); whether you notice it or not is a different story. Like I said before, if you compare your Dynex to a Samsung or Sony, you will clearly see the difference. I'm just giving you my advice, like many others, which is to spend your $250 on something more worthwhile. Do whatever you want; no one is forcing you to do anything.
