    Choosing a gaming monitor

    Choosing a gaming monitor

    Hey guys. In a dilemma here. I recently just got a new rig and I need to get a new monitor for it. Need to figure out if I should get a 4k with a lower refresh rate or if I should stick to a 1440p screen with 100+ refresh rate? Should I pick IPS or TN? What monitors would you guys recommend? Thank you in advance BTW, my new rig has a 7700K with a 1080ti so I assume it is best for me to get a screen with gsync.

    Graphic Card Upgrade

    Oh wow. I might do that instead of a 980m then. How about driver-wise? Would I need a custom vBIOS or driver to run that or is it plug in play as long as you have an unlocked BIOS?

    M17X R4 GPU Issue

    I have read somewhere on the forum that I would need an unlocked BIOS to install a 980M? Are there any other steps that I need to know about before purchasing that card?

    M17X R4 GPU Issue

    My 680m just died a few days ago. It showing artifacts on the screen and games would crash whenever I run them fullscreen. I figured that the next course of action would be to replace the GPU. And then I saw the prices... I am looking at the 980m upgrade kit and realized that they cost nearly the same as refurb/used laptops with the same, or better, GPUs. My question is: Would you guys recommend that I go for it and just replace the GPU, or should I just build my own desktop which I assume would be more reliable/future proof. My budget for the desktop is $2,000-$3000. Here are the specs on my R4 if it matters: - CPU: i7-3740QM @ 2.70Ghz - MEM: 32GB DD3 RAM - STORAGE: 256GB Samsung SSD and a 1TB WD HDD - DISPLAY: 60hz 1080p LCD - GPU: 2GB GTX 680M (soon to be replaced...maybe) - BIOS: A11 I would really appreciate the input

    NVIDIA GTX 1070/1080 for Notebooks Coming Soon

    Would it be possible to install one of these on an M17X R4 with an unlocked BIOS?

    M17X R4 GPU upgrade to 970m

    What is the latest unlocked BIOS available for the R4? I've only seen the A11s.
