So i searched for a better one, and found it. It is an OEM HP monitor stand for a 22" they sell. Found it on ebay (link here) for $22 shipped. It had some weird hp connector plate on there, but once you simply unscrew the HP connector plates, a 100mm vesa mounting plate is revealed. I then used the screws I just took off, and a washer for each screw to mount the monitor. It is sturdy as hell, and has height adjustment, screen rotation, tilt, and swivel. At the tallest height extension, the monitor has enough clearance for screen rotation to portrait. Plus it looks great and was only $22 shipped.

Here are some pics.



Lowest height setting



Tallest height



A little cable organizer pass-through thing. Works great for a keyboard wire.




Side profile, lowest height.




Tallest height, and maximum tilt and swivel.

Could you please post a pic if it in portrait? Sorry if you already have, I'm using my phone

I just posted yesterday how to get all your profiles up too 120hz with nvidia without patch drives and without test mode. It got skipped over, I don't think most people saw it.

Another nice thing about it, there is no visible HP branding on it anywhere.

I don't think so. I doubt these have infrared or any thing else, they have very basic electronics

I bought 3 and none of them is perfect. Most of the users show their LCD with new desktop background pics. Because without it you will see the screen lacks of uniformity.


Darth Vader is one of the remote controls that can handle this qnix wink.gif

alright so i opened it up, used some tape around the metal frame after i tried to straighten it out as best i could. put it back together and most of the BLB is gone, only minimal blb that doesn't bother me much.

overall i'm very satisfied. it's a great monitor thumb.gif

I was put off by some of the bad ebay experiences so I ordered from a site instead, even called them to make sure they were legit, lol! I couldn't be happier with my monitor right now. Time to get 2nd one...
Just curious, what is this XBMC + fraps test?
post #3800 of 25887
So now that I have this great monitor, it's time to build a new PC gaming rig to enter the world of Ultra HD gaming. Now I'm doing my video card research and seems all the rage is between either the HD 7970 GHZ edition or the GTX 770. SLI/Xfire, The Titan, 7990 and GTX690 are all out of my budget for now so I wanted to ask you guys this:

Will I be able to (for the most part) pull off at least 120 FPS in most games to be able to take advantage of this monitor at 2560x1440 @ 120 hz? I am looking to achieve either High or Ultra settings on almost all games but I can live with AA off. With that said, will this be possible on just one of these cards?

Thanks for any input.
