Dude no way I could put up with that. EVERYONE should have the freedom to enjoy what they will. I mean it's understandable if you're struggling but if you are doing okay and work for your money then by all means you should be able to enjoy it how you will.

Sigh Goodluck buddy... p.s. keep the monitor. You deserve it!

I just might! The problem is that she is a stay at home mom that doesn't work. Now she does alot around the house, but I do help out a ton too!. Dishes, laundry, kids, vacuuming, house maintenance, ect. So it's not like I don't help out. The only thing I do is computers.

Not to rub it in BUT my lady friend put this monitor on her credit card and I'm paying her each week. Sadly I make minimum wage and live check to check but I still deserve to enjoy 4 million pixels! It will make those terrible paychecks more bearable

I've been married for 14 years. In the beginning, my wife would question a lot of my purchases. As the years go on and more and more gear arrives, she has given up on it. I've tried over 12 graphics cards and 8 monitors in the past 6 months. devil.gif

She is a patient and awesome woman..

dream-seller shipped my allegedly glossy X-Star on Friday and never messaged me about quality issues.

EDID overrides don't cause conflicts. NVIDIA's driver is buggy. AMD's driver doesn't have that problem, so what conflicts are you trying to avoid?

GeForce Experience is for NVIDIA cards only, and Samsung Magician doesn't affect AMD's driver, so what problem are you trying to solve? What software are you trying to use?

Sorry but that's unacceptable.
I don't have a wife, but had a long term relationship with a special lady. Unfortunately it didn't work out in the end as she had to go back to her homeland.
However, we never, ever had problems like that.

I can understand someone paying say £3000 on a new PC, on a shared account - but someone spending less than 1 pair of jeans on a monitor (He got it super cheap folks), that will probably last longer than "her fashion" - I have little to no belief about.

I wouldn't stand anyone controlling my life. It's my PC, my monitor, heck it's my own god damn gift card. What makes YOU (your wife) have a say over it?

Sorry man, had to vent out there - can't stand that type of crap in relationships.
