upgrade peripherals probably. Treat yourself to a nice TLN PLS panel monitor, possibly 1440p.

If a Jewish man is free to grow his beard, a Muslim man should have that same right without being called a terrorist. If a Christian Nun is free to cover her head, a Muslim woman should have the same right without been called oppressed. No double standards!

I'm using the second one and the first one I use as a second computer or as a computer that I use when I host LAN parties.

Yeah that asus is a great monitor, they have falsely advertised it there as a gaming monitor but who cares. It has an IPS panel which is great, but a PLS panel is the next step up, and its called for considering how much cash you have already wasted on computing. Get a 1440p PLS and you will not be dissapointed.

They are both in the op. I honestly have no idea why he has those tbh.

I was talking to him, he's from a rich background. There not even bad builds, just completely overkill for most people.

I suggest either doing a full loop or getting a seriously nice set or peripherals.
