Advice on Gaming PC in one room and Samsung 46inch in another room.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Forum, Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here goes. Hardware - Sandybridge I5 unlocked GTX560 TI FROZR 2GB 16GB RAM DDR3 Muskin The Problem - The PC is in one room, the Big TV is in another. I would like to play skyrim etc on the big screen. The solution >>???? I got a 15m 1.4a HDMI that I intend to run under the floor between the GTX HDMI port and the TV / AV Receiver. Then I plan to use a wireless KB/Mouse to enter game play. Worst case I could use a USB extension if the wireless idea is bad. The TV does 2D->3D conversion and runs through my high end amp and speakers so gameplay with the audio setup should be very nice indeed. Can anyone see a problem using this solution ? Will it work ? Many thanks. Ron.

shouldn't run into any problems. may just need to use an extension for the wireless keyboard and mouse but thats it.

Excellent thank you.

I bought a dedicated blu ray player as opposed to a PS3 on account that I had just built a decent gaming machine and didnt want to duplicate systems if there was no need.

This is music to my ears.

Any reccomendations on wireless KB/M options ?

I read about 2 types - ones that use up CPU by polling at specific intervals and ones that dont. Obviously the ones that dont use less CPU and are better for gaming....


Thanks again.

Ron.

a 500/1000hz polling rate is good for gaming too, ive been using that for years, it improves mouse responsiveness greatly, but yes increases cpu usage by a tiny amount

switching from normal (125hz in xp) to 500 is barely noticeable, but you will get used to it, and notice the lagg when you switch back to 125hz..
1000hz is 1ms, 500hz is 2ms, 250 hz is 4ms, 125hz is... a whopping 8ms latency..

tbh i have always used the 500hz polling rate, cuz doubling cpu usage for 1ms advantage is a bit over the top..

the high polling rate, been using that since my.. umm amd 2400+? it is not an issue on my i5, there are much better options to reduce cpu overhead (disabling services you dont need for gaming, as spoolserv, and 5 services that provide homegroup and windows shares, tons of functions that start/run, and you dont need for gaming.. antivirus another nice one..)
