Lol I completely forgot about them, even with my employee discount the monitors are still expensive as heck though looking @ liquidation sites and craigslist the 500-700$ (new) look very enticing especially when I was contemplating on a 100% sRGB monitor from Asus as I like my colors for artwork and when I draw.
Personally, I don't mess with Debezeling with Bezel correction it's barely noticeable. If you go 4k Get one. I think at a 4k resolution there really / truly is no need to do anything. I am curious though as to how 1920 x 1080 movies in full screen would look.
I still like the screen real estate, it'd be annoying unless the tiled sections were able to expand windows to fit within their respective 1080p blocks, as I like to maximize on mine, though I'm sure after some time I may adapt, I just can't be without multi monitors anymore lol. Even at work I managed to grab 3 for my desk w/ my docking station and just to keep me quiet apparently they're ordering me a 4th so I"ll be looking into a ViDock and or multiple USB->DVI adaptors I guess.
Hopefully the 4k prices come down though 32" @ 4k seems REALLY small, though I could be wrong. If that was the case though I'd probably push for the 84" LG 4k since its dropping every couple months, and that would be a LOVELY piece of work <3 started around 30k, then 24k then 17k then 10k now its just below 9k most likely around 5-6k by xmas if we're lucky. Def afforadable by next year and should be around 4k hopefully which would be 1k above the monitor price but w/ a whoping 53" of extra viewing space
Not sure I am sold since, I prefer to save my money on things worthwhile, stronger timing memory = a waste. Your money is better spent on a better cpu/gpu for the bang to the buck
Oh no no I was just adding on to your previous comment about 64 vs 32 and or maxing the slots, same ram just can adjust the timings fine, I used to just grab whatever was rated highly and go with it back when I got my 980x as I'd been using Sagers since 2005 ->2010 So it was a very nice jump. Now since I have time kicking around been studying up though won't claim to know more than anyone here as I'm soaking up as much as I can get and love the tutorials and benchmarks people put up.
As far as RAM goes I believe I saved quite a bit after researching found G.Skill to be a much better bang for my buck vs spending an additional 100-150$ more on the same speeds for the Corsair Dominator Platinums ( though the aesthetics are <3 )
But the main thing is, considering X79 vs Hawell. Haswell has native USB 3.0 and more SATA6 ports. X79 does not, to spend so much money most likey $500+ on a RIVE BE for a board that does not have ALL the features it should have then another $600 on the CPU / Cooler (if I don't stay on wicked awesome air), for only based off our 1440p vs 1600p thread a minor 5-10% bump in performance does not seem to make much sense. I would do it though in a heartbeat if that x79 had more native ports... since I am itching to have faster performance.
X99 woulda been bawse, though I was unaware it was still non-native, originally thought it was hype.

This is something I was under the impression of and gathered (and could be WAYYYY off )from the waves of threads on different forums and other areas from people asking the difference between X and K that X's were mainly Cherry picked K's in theory so that you'd have a much higher quality ( luck of the lottery ) vs getting a K. My luck is not that great, so I don't mind playing it safe to be honest, though I am curious and forgot if K's allow access to the Multiplier option in the Bios or if thats strictly for X types only?
I"m sure others can chime in, though I think the initial perk that I derived this from was from an Intel engineer posting on Reddit sometime back.
My apologies if its changed and or Incorrect, as the one thing I DON"T want to do is say something that may lead someone else into believing different, so to clear that up this was more or less my understanding from research online.
