    Damn,your dad is rich,

    well,what's the point of using another display for a all in one,ust use your Ultra High Definition screen of da iMac

    for the resolution problem i dunno

    The sad thing is is that my dad would spend that much money when really we have a <$60000 yearly income. He wants to use the monitor for his Photoshop tools and such.

    Well, my dad got the 5K iMac maxed out (almost $4500), and it using it with the 1600p monitor. I don't really care, I'll just get my own monitor. But there is a problem. The monitor can only go up to 1280x800. Everything is huge on the monitor. When my dad went to the Apple store to ask about it, they weren't what the problem was. They guessed it was the graphics card. So, what is the maximum the R9 M295X can put out? We have a feeling the graphics card is the problem, but we aren't sure.

    16 ms response is pretty much the worst response possible for a 60Hz monitor. The frame time of 60Hz is 16.666...ms, so there's no way it can be slower.

    I honestly don't think response time is that bad. I've used Cinema displays before, and movement was quite crisp on all of them. Maybe Apple somehow believes that frame time is response time?

    My dad has had this monitor for like at least 6 years, maybe 8. It came out in 2004, so it's pretty old. I have only played MC on it, but I've never noticed any motion blur or anything. How do you think performance would be with a 970 on most games like BF4 and modded Skyrim with with at least high settings.

    The monitor should be fine because you can downscale the games to 1080p so you'll still be able to play fine.

    You may get a small black bar depending on the aspect ratio of the monitor.

    The response time is pretty bad, but then again a normal TV's is worse.

    I don't want to downscale because then some stuff would look blurry. It's 16:10, so most games should support it, and on videos the black bar wouldn't bother me much. I guess my main concern is the response time.

    Last time I checked most Tvs are 16 ms
    I would just sell the display as they Still fetch a lot of money on ebay

    I can't/won't sell it because it was my dad's and if he wanted to sell it, he would. I think he is mainly giving it to me just so I don't have to wait longer to get my PC by having to save more money for the monitor. I will probably replace it later on once I can get a better monitor. I also I'm not liking all the benchmarks for some games at even 1440p.

    My dad has a 30" 1600p Apple Cinema Display from a long time ago that he is planning on not using once he get's the new Retina iMac (I tried to persuade him to do something cheaper but he refused). He may give it to me when I build my PC. Right now I'm planning for a GTX 970, but I couldn't find any benchmarks on games at this resolution. I was going to get a 1080p monitor, but if he gives me his monitor, that would take a couple hundred dollars off of what I was thinking I would need to pay. I was planning on playing some pretty graphical games, such as BF4, Modded Skyrim, etc. I don't know the response time on it, either. I may just use the monitor for gaming temporarily while I wait until I can get a smaller 1080p monitor, but I may also get a second 970 down the line to be able to game at 1600p. So how well does a single 970 do at 1600p in pretty graphical games?
    EDIT: The response time is 16 ms. How bad is that?

    posted a message on Need simple Video Editor
    I am going be working on a project soon and need a simple video editor that has very little to no learning needed. I just need to be able to trim videos and put videos together. What is the most simple one you could recommend? I will be taking the videos on my phone and using onedrive to transfer it to my laptop.

    Actually, Windows 10 will run on phones, tablets, Xbox, etc. Windows 10 will have a special UI for each platform. Look at the picture on this article:

    Horribly. Resource hog: Quite a bit. It chews up your RAM like nothing else so that apps can open to where they were last time. Also, just a note I have found. On XUbuntu, I could run Minecraft @ 70-100 fps with settings and shaders maxed and 1080p. Windows 10, I can barely run shaders with low settings on Minecraft at about 40 fps default resolution. Ubuntu FTW!!!

    EDIT: I am seriously looking forward to getting back onto Linux for the sake of performance.

    You do realize this is a very early build of Windows 10 and by the time it releases commercially, it will probably perform just as good if not better than Windows 8. WIndows 10 isn't meant to be your default OS yet.

    Looking at the One M8, G3 and Moto X, yet wants other suggestions to be under $200?

    That doesn't make sense at all.

    He means on contract.

    If the camera is not a major concern, I would get the Moto X 2014.

    The only reason people don't like the start menu/start screen and metro stuff is because they are too stubborn to embrace change. Windows 8.1 in my opinion hands down is better than Windows 7 in every way in my opinion. Windows 10 is just improving upon an already great concept. Also, remember, this is still very early in development so there will be tons of changes and it could look vastly different by the time it releases. If there is enough demand for borders around windows, they can add them back.

    If people keep refusing to embrace change we will never get anywhere.

    Unless there are problems with the card (cooling and such), I would swap the 780 for the 970. Cheaper and better performance.

    posted a message on Android or Apple?
    I really like all the stuff that Apple is doing through continuity with iDevices and Macs, but for those who don't use Macs, this would be useless. Apple has better App Selection and a lot of apps come out first on iOS. Apple also has a much better Music selection and I would say iTunes is better to buy into than Play Music. Other than those few things, Android dominates, IMO. You have more choice on how much you want to spend, what size you want, how you want your software to look, etc, etc. Also Android phone of a similar price as the iPhone tend to have better specs. 1GB of RAM on the new iPhones is unacceptable.

    I don't watch either and don't plan to watch either. They annoy the crap out of me. Some of my friends (like 2 years younger than me) are obsessed with Sky and I hate it when they say budder relentlessly.
