    Nope. Watching on the sidelines.

    New PC is getting the old 1080 whilst the lady’s computer may go onboard graphics for the time being since she’s not using much in the way of graphics card.

    LG 38WN95 to arrive tomorrow. Somehow I managed to snag one up in the 10 minutes it was available for order from LG. That thing goes more towards upgrading the work from home setup as that is gonna be extended well into next year but also for play :). Was thinking about the 49” double-wide but it’s just gonna be too big for the desk.

    Do you Discord @FooBird ? I know you are busy with work and all but didn't know if you use it while gaming.

    Damn! Giving the 'ol lady shitting on-board graphics. See how much you love her :rotfl: I'm kidding.

    Damn! 38" monitor. I couldn't go that big. I like my dual monitors. 27" <3

    Dual 27” monitors are being combined for 49” inch 32:9 setups. That was a little too wide for all of my use. The 21:9 is good compromise up from dual 24” screens.

    I’ve never done discord while gaming.

    I am on an eternal waitlist for a 3080. There is a plan on upgrading graphics cards and giving her my 1080 but that’s not happening quickly. She doesn’t use the computer for much more than running the internet and doing spreadsheet stuff.

    She needs the dual monitor functionality more than a gaming graphics card and I don’t want to purchase an interim video card to put into a machine until the 3080 arrives.

    One of my coworkers picked up one of those LG ultrawide. Said he's saving for the second so he can do that exact setup

    I’ve seen a few YouTube people with the ultrawides for video editing.

    I didn't like curved until I used one. They're SO nice.

    Lol I guess! It is nice having a large screen when doing video editing stuff though.

    oh that i agree, i started editing on square monitors and when the office transitioned to widescreens it was amazing

    Curved TVs are BS, curved monitors though seem worth it, at least youre close enough that the claim about it being immersive holds up

    My current setup of two screens are not exactly flat, it’s basically a very coarse curve. Well, I’ll see how the ultrawide will work for the bevy of tasks I have to throw at it 10-12 hours a day.

    My 1080 and 4 core/4 thread processor are only able to run AC:Odyssey to a frame rate of 45 FPS at 3840x1600 resolution and it’s pushing hard.

    Got confirmation on the Ryzen 5800x will ship December 2.
    nCases will ship this week.
