Well, I would definitely recommend the one I'm using - Dell AW5520QF (Alienware 4K OLED 120Hz 55").

Or, get the 48" OLED 120Hz that LG just released (48CX).

These bigger sized monitors would be perfect for games like MFS etc.

Having been flying in this for several months now, I can say, if you're a flight sim fan like me, there hasn't been such a no-brainer in a long time. It has a long way to go, but what they have is fantastic.

I'd probably talk my way back into staying married if I got the 34", but would probably call my divorce lawyer in advance if I bought the 55"

LOL

The key to getting these kinds of things is to buy her a gift of higher value and say, "Look honey, I got something cheap for myself instead." WORKS EVERY TIME!

I'm trying. She wants a travel camper. This will be a fraction of the cost.

and just how much would a divorce cost?



get the camper.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.

If you need help: Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

I wonder if this has covid-19 add-on pack on it, so every time you fly from one place to another you must stop playing for 14 days and your PC has to be isolated.
