You have the same Samsung I have


Looks crap now

Only have meths, not risking that! Going to give olive oil another shot. It's a pain to get off the screen itself though.

It would depend on the resolution.

At it's native resolution of 2560x1440 I would say yes. It probably won't be rock solid at 67fps and might dip into the 50's and high 40's at times but it will run it. But you will have to disable most forms of AA. And Super-sampling AA is probably out the window at that resolution for real high end games. Maybe x2 if you are lucky.

I discovered a useful secondary purpose for the monitor while greasing the stabilizers on my keyboard ... up to full brightness on a white background makes it a handy worktop diffuse lamp

Just an update that should be important. I got a letter a few days ago that is a request from Fedex for Import Customs + taxes...

its €43.

Bringing my sum total to €320. probably the best €320 ive spent on my PC to be fair though.

two of my friends are ordering these today, so when they arrive ill set up a 6990 + 6970 Trifire eyefinity 7680*1440 monster for ****s and giggles.

EDIT: and take a few pics for my epeen.

sure. biggest problem is finding a desk that's big enough for all 3. even the kitchen table might be too small.

Daycent idea Tea_bag, can't wait to see that


Your single screen might look a bit lonely when the other screens are gone....

there are a few profiles online for these, but I found my blacks to be perfectly black, and whites brilliantly white, and I cant see anything wrong in-between, so basically, no

Can't you just up your brightness setting a notch or two?
