Shrew replied to HappyBargainer on Dell 27" Gaming Monitor S2721DGF $519.34 (Save $279.65) Delivered @ Dell
Most people find 1440p at 27" gives well sized, readable text. Windows scaling is really the best option if you find text too small, as...

Shrew replied to zonbie on Devanti Portable Air Conditioner 2500W $262.90 Delivered @ OzPlaza Living eBay
A dehumidifer will always do a better job of being a dehumidifier, regardless of where you live. I do live in Queensland. If you want...
Shrew replied to manic on Devanti Portable Air Conditioner 2500W $262.90 Delivered @ OzPlaza Living eBay
Yes, but an actual dehumidifer does a better job while using 1/10th of the power. Don't buy a portable AC like this one.
Shrew replied to Jr64 on [eBay Plus] Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT Wireless Gaming Mouse - Black $181.77 Delivered @ Ninja.buy eBay
This is smaller and a lot lighter.
Shrew replied to Deepchild on ViewSonic XG2705-2K 27" QHD 144Hz IPS Gaming Monitor & Steelseries Arctis 1 Wireless Gaming Headset $399 + Delivery @ Mwave
If this model is similar to the VX2705, the Dell is definitely the better monitor. Of course, if you actually need the wireless headset...
Shrew replied to Keplaffintech on Image Infrared Picture Heater 600W Free Wireless Thermostat $251.30 (Was $359) Delivered @ Energywisechoice eBay
Yes. A heater like this is exactly 100% energy efficient. Reverse cycle AC can be up to 600% efficient under ideal conditions, but...
Yep, just ask them for it as they're required to give it to you. They aren't required to give the pupil distance (PD) measurement which you...

I own the original GPW... I have both right side buttons disabled and lights off to make the battery last longer, so I'd definitely take...
Shrew replied to adamshere on Samsung 34" UWQHD VA Monitor 3440x1440 (LS34J550WQEXXY) $367.20 ($358.02 with eBay Plus) @ Futu Online eBay
It doesn't, the Gigabyte has the same panel but it's implemented better. For the price difference, I'd probably get the Xiaomi at $429...

It's been dropping below 5 degrees in the western suburbs at night. That's cold.
Shrew replied to Melb69 on [eBay Plus] MSI 27" Gaming Monitor MAG272C $235, 23.6" G241VC $165, GIGABYTE 16GB DDR4 3200 Memory $119 Delivered @ HT eBay
It's a good price if you're specifically looking for a 27" 1080p monitor... personally, though, I just wouldn't.

My old build with an i5 4670K (same CPU, but overclocked) bottlenecked a 980 Ti pretty hard at 1080p. A 3060 is at least 50% faster. I...

This has an HDD vs an SSD in the OP.
Shrew replied to Dienk on Xiaomi Mi Curved 34" 144hz WQHD 21:9 FreeSync Gaming Monitor $503.01 or $491.92 (With eBay Plus) @ Gearbite eBay
Same panel, but Gigabyte's implementation is better. Definitely worth the bit extra imo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5FunMmbztw
Shrew replied to itsfuze on Dell 27" S2721DGF QHD 144Hz (165Hz on DP) IPS Gaming Monitor $428.80 Delivered (W/ 5 Year Warranty) @ Dell eBay
For general gaming, probably not. The S2719DGF is pretty good for a TN panel.
Shrew replied to homersyd on Dell 27" S2721DGF QHD 144Hz (165Hz on DP) IPS Gaming Monitor $408.69 Delivered @ Dell
Pretty much on par, with the M27Q maybe marginally better. https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/gigabyte/m27q...

If you intend on upgrading the GPU later on, get something better and higher wattage. If you absolutely don't, it's okay but you're better...

150% scaling makes everything slightly larger than FHD with super sharp text.
Shrew replied to ilikediscounts on AOC AGON III AG273FZE 27" 240hz Nano IPS FHD Gaming Monitor $399 (Was $549) & Bonus $100 Steam Code + Delivery @ Scorptec
Dell is 1440p, this is 1080p. The Dell is better for everything except competitive fps games.

Dial in 3600 16-16-16 1.35V and it should just work (stress test to check though!), those are very loose timings for high end B-die. You...

Like all overclocking, you're playing the silicon lottery. I have this kit and can only do 3600C14, faster than that needs over 1.5V...

Your calculations are wrong but the theory behind it is correct. 3600MHz means each clock is 1/3,600,000,000 of a second. You also need to...

These sticks will be probably Hynix AFR which won't clock well if at all. For a Ryzen 5000 CPU imo it's definitely worth the extra cost in...

Not at 1.35V.
Usually between 25/26, sometimes turning it on then off for a bit because even set to 26 it feels too cold if it's been on for a while. Too...
Shrew replied to TrulyUnicorn on AOC Q27G2S 27" 1440p IPS 155hz 1ms Freesync Premium Monitor - $389 + Shipping (Approx $20) @ Shopping Express
If you're a gamer, 144Hz is absolutely worth the extra spend.
