Can anyone link me to a guide or tell me how to take the plastic arm that connects to the stand? I looked for a couple minutes today but had to run to work. I am at work now and want to take it off when I get home. Removed 4 screws but that seemed to do nothing. I have the matte x star. Thanks!

Also, does anyone know if there's a difference if I use amd or nvidia for ocing the monitor or etc?

EDIT: I mainly play league, and looking at DX9 benchmarks, it seems like the 670 would work better in this case, 7950 for anything DX10

I just bit the bullet on a 4gb GTX670 for about $300. I've been running these two monitors on an 8800 ultra, so finally I'll be able to do something meaningful with them. biggrin.gif

Need to pick one of these tonight. Comparing the hulustar qnix ($317) vs his x-star ($305). Is the only difference the logo and the price? I saw in the FAQ about the chance of different boards, has anyone ordered hulustar's x-star and seen if the board is the same?

Nice! I got my Gigabyte Windforce 680 4GB for about $350 because of an Amazon.com error.
