    When I first got into pc building back in the Voodoo 3 days I was that way. I've lost the love for it.

    I think next gen VR is going to get me wanting a new build. If there is a way to get 4k for each eye it will be hard to resist.

    Just spent the last hour trying to find a tv or pc monitor that I can sit on my computer desk, all I'm looking for is:

    Between 32" - 42"
    4k
    120hz or above
    4ms or below (Hopefully 4ms or below is good for gaming?)
    Full HDR10 (I think HDR10 is the best?)

    Now I found TCL 43S517 43-Inch 4K Ultra which even being an inch over my limit was going to let it slide since it said it has HDR10 but the reviews say it looks terrible testing with HDR content; that seems to be most tvs too.

    HDR just doesn't look good on smaller screens I suppose.

    Can't seem to find what I want :pissed:

    So long as the head unit is wireless and lightweight. I want it to be like putting on a pair of sunglasses. The oculus and PS VR are so cumbersome it ruins the experience for me, I'm waiting for comfort first before I ever try VR again.

    Monitors suck. This is my monitor I think its overpriced but probably the best right now.

    All right you nerds need to do an all things computing thread. :mad:


    Back to the topic at hand

    I preordered world war z that cones out Tuesday .... just read it's a co-op only game. :mad:

    And I can't cancel the preorder. :bigcry:

    I fucking hate co-op games.

    Maybe you can play it with bots, though. Left for Dead is considered Co-op only, but you can play Co-op with the AI if you have no frans.

    I hope so. But usually those games say 1-4 players ... this one says 2-4. Guess I'll find out Tuesday

    I wasn't even going to consider a TV until doing my research and finding that HDR is incredibly rare on a PC monitor and comes standard in most modern tv's.

    Anyway your monitor looks good but doesn't have HDR :banghead: I would totally go out and get the Acer Predator XB273K but it only comes in a 27" screen size and no way I'm going from a 32" to a 27" :no:

    @Tranquil I have a question and please no spoilers, when you flipped HZD did you’re copy of the game already have the expansion pack?

    Flipped? Not sure what that means, but I went to gamestop and bought the complete edition with the dlc for $20.

    That expansion pack is maddeningly tough, not sure why the makers of the game went that route but kind of ruined because of the difficulty spike.

    Have any of you played a game called The Talos Principle? I have it on Steam but they also put it out for mobile. Not sure if you can get it on console. It’s a brilliant game.

    It’s largely puzzle based, so don’t watch that walk through, dink.
