Re: Z97-ws

Nice but I haven't heard one thing better about it yet. I am set for a long time. I have no need to look at storage again for my home desktop. If I ever decide to upgrade there is no telling what I would get by that time but now I would lean toward a Micro-ATX mobo and smaller case.

BTW, I just bought a couple of high-end workstation laptops for work. They were Dell Precision models and I purchase an advanced E-port USB 3.0 docking station for them. This is a neat solution. The docking station allows two desktop monitor to be hooked up and running as well as full sized keyboard and mouse. It charges the laptop as well, you just plug it in and go. This would be a good desktop solution IMO as you could also move around the house and take on the road. The thing is no heavy gaming and no upgrading

Re: Z97-ws

Yeah you have a rig to last a long time. I just posted the link to show what ASUS's latest offerings are.

My board has a nice unused 3.0 x 16 slot I can jam in a Samsung 960 when the time comes and that's all I was interested in. The rest is just noise!

Re: Z97-ws

I got a bit bored yesterday and I finally found the time to do something I wanted to do for a long time.

Loaded up Chrome, FF, Opera, IE, and Edge. Had them all running so I could compare rendering, text clarity, and speed.

Take away by my personal rankings:

1. Edge
2. FF
3. Chrome
4. Opera
5. IE

FF was the only one that did not choke when I loaded up 15 Tabs at once. LOL

Re: Z97-ws

OT:

Anyone, does a 4k UHD TV display 1080p any better than the standard crop of HD TV's? Just wondring as 4K pickings appear relatively slim.

Re: Z97-ws

My 4K upscales 1080P to 4K and looks great! By the way 3 inches of rain in the last 2 days here. Netflix and Amazon video have lots of 4k content! Bosch and Golitah are Great series on Amazon video in 4K HDR

Re: Z97-ws

OT: What's the significance in a curved monitor i.e. Samsung's 9800 UHD series?

I like the curve on my monitor but for a TV not so much, to me its a gimmick for watching TV, if your off center just a little bit it not a good experience, a MONTOR YOUR ALWAYS RIGHT IN FRONT AND UP CLOSE ON A TV YOUR FARTHER AWAY AND IF THERES GLARE IT MAKES IT WORSE! Damn caps key...lol
