post #1321 of 25935
Just ordered my X-Star DP2710 Matte. Ordered a clamp monitor stand for my desk as well. Anything else I should be ordering or that I am leaving out? I didn't even think about it but should I purchase an american plug that connects to the power brick? I realize that they send you an adapter but I feel like I would be safer having the american plug.

This is the item that I just ordered, thanks.

@mspamed Good advice but I am telling you guys this is not software. I could accomplish the same by booting a Linux LiveCD or any other OS. Cant even see my BIOS. My card does output BIOS screen to another monitor though that was only 1280x1024.

I am confident it is my DVI port somehow; I just hope I can rectify it.

Hmmm, its just the monitor starts, so I doubt its the monitor you know.
It has to be either your dvi, your gfx or your software and as far as your posts are concerned yeah your gfx and software seems to be fine.

My monitor arrived. Quite a bit of panel play, one stuck pixel, BLB looks fairly minor, although I'll test that later after I've fixed the panel play with tape.

Picture is impressive, although it was a bit oversaturated at stock. I'm still testing 120Hz gaming. Amalur was stuttering even though EVGA Precision was reporting 115-120FPS. Grid looks excellent. Borderlands is noticeably smoother, especially when scoping.

To determine if I really need to run at 120Hz, I'm going to keep it at 120 for a week or two so I get used to it, then I'll go down to 96 and see if I can tell the difference.

Now I just need to figure out how to coax 80+ fps out of my system in the STALKER games and I'll be set.

I honestly wouldn't use anything Korean(besides the monitor obviously), lol. A new power prick and DVI-D cable just to be safe as well.

Could you link me something that I should buy then or what people are buying for their monitors? I have no idea on this and usually buy all my cables from monoprice. tongue.gif

I didn't realize people were replacing the entire power brick. I always see people complaining about buzzing power bricks or faulty power bricks. Didn't realize you could just replace them. Lol. People shouldn't be *****ing then.

Me and the woman saw a bunch of those at the store when we were shopping for condoms the other day. tongue.gif

Seriously though, I don't recommend using a different power brick than the one supplied with the monitor. Also, it seems like the included DVI cable works better for most people, so I wouldn't swap that either unless something is wrong with it. What you want is a generic PC power cord, the same kind that comes with any power supply. Check out this page: http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10228

The length is up to you, but don't get excessive length if you don't need to. I recommend 16AWG just in case. That number relates to the thickness and it is a gauge measure, meaning the cables are thicker the lower you go on that number.

So something like this should be fine?

I just want to make sure I buy the right thing. Haha. Thanks a lot. What I thought about the power brick... hadn't seen people replacing them but heard about people switching to the american cord which I would like to do.

Well my power brick was DOA. Seller gave me a partial refund for it. I had an extra 12v 6A brick of higher quality that works just fine. You can use other bricks as long as the voltage rating is equal, amperage equal or greater than, never lesser, and plug polarity and size match.
