Well, there is a rumour that AMD is gonna show off their new cards at E3.

Hopefully its the 9k series, but its also positive they might be showing off the 8k series.

Also with them developing the apus in the one/ps4 could also have something to do with that.

Ok this Gateway stand from eBay is the shiz for the price. Well designed and constructed and thus totally sturdy with a powered 4 port USB hub as well (hell I might power my Raspberry Pi from it). Up, down, tilt, portrait all a breeze. Mine even came with screws after all and I'm really glad cause the ones I bought were slightly too long.

Installation was easy too. The top tabs were the only thing that gave me any trouble. Once you get the front bezel frame off you can see the stock stubs screws right there and just requires lifting the panel (only held down by two unsecured tabs on each side at this point) slightly upwards so you can get at them. If you don't have an angled or stubby screwdriver then will need to lift higher and thus also disconnect the front connections.

Glad I did not need to remove the frame; that part definitely gets to be much more careful work I can see. I did see the likely cause of my top right corner bleed though which is the frame being much tighter against the panel in that spot. For the helluva it I did put three layers of tape on top of the frame there and I actually think it may have helped but is still daylight.

Only minor nitpick with this stand is it's darkish grey not black (to match Gateway's displays 7 years ago).

Pics with monitor please smile.gif If I ever go back down to one or two monitors instead of 3 I'd def look into one of these stands.

Glad it worked out. Gateway and Dell have always had pretty good stock stands.

Meant portrait not landscape above; edited. Pics don't seem to do it much justice (either the one on eBay which makes the base look tiny nor that which the other guy posted) but I can oblige later on today. The color diff probably won't be noticeable either but we'll see...
