re: 27" iMac w/ Retina Display (5k Monitor) - ILikeLSUToo
[quote]$3300 at a minimum seems a little steep. I don't think they are going to tack $1500 onto the price of a 27" iMac for Retina. If you look at the difference between a 13" MB with and without Retina, it's only a few hundred difference. I look for it to be $2500 to $3000.[/quote] Here's the ba...

[quote]stout[/quote] FYI, that video card you linked is not going to fit in his Micro ATX case. Check the specs. It's gotta be 279mm or less. Why not the GTX 970 for $329? That's why I suggested it. Excellent bang for buck, consumes less power, and the reference boards are short, only 241mm....

[quote]Is there any difference between setting the frame limiter at 60 as opposed to using vsync? [/quote] Yeah, there's a big difference. Tearing can actually be pretty bad at 60fps without vsync. As you probably know, GPUs don't necessarily render each frame at a consistent interval. In a perf...

[quote]LSUToo, what did you do with those 290s? [/quote] They've been in my main rig with full-cover EK blocks since I bought them. They'll be for sale in the coming weeks. I'm sure I'll take a huge hit on them because of the blocks being near impossible to sell, but I'm glad I only paid $200 for...

Dell's releasing an ultrasharp with that resolution, and it's expected to be $2500 alone. Given that, I would expect $3299 minimum for a 5K-res iMac....

[quote]this isn't why it's more difficult to access/repair. It's more difficult to access/repair because they don't want users to attempt their own repairs.

re: PC video card help - ILikeLSUToo
Given that it's a so-so PSU but fared kinda sorta well in tests, I put it on the fence because of the 970's 145W TDP. It would put the 12V rail at something close to 95% load. Having never owned one myself, I am only basing my guess of its capabilities on the jonnyguru load test: http://www.jonnygur...

[quote]Also my price range is no more that $350.00.[/quote] The answer is a GTX 970 for $329. In fact, the TDP being 100 watts lower than something like a 770 may actually make it possible to run on that PSU. [i]Maybe[/i]. NVidia officially recommends a 500W, but given the rest of your components...

re: Help with UVerse WiFi - ILikeLSUToo
There are various tutorials depending on the exact model of your gateway, but the gist is to turn off WiFi and keep your u-verse receivers plugged into the gateway. Then, connect your own router to the gateway as well. Beyond that, there are a couple of ways to use your router. One is make it an acc...

re: Help with UVerse WiFi - ILikeLSUToo
Stop using the WiFi on the gateway and get a better dedicated router for internet, but keep the wireless transmitter for the Uverse receiver attached to the gateway. You want your TV and Internet routed separately, because those gateways are ill-equipped to effectively handle both simultaneously. Th...

Yeah, true. But the OP needs to provide more info. It's impossible to suggest much without knowing what the family will be doing with it specifically, as well as some ballpark budget. From the info given, it looks to me like they just need a few basic PCs with some sort of free office program, and s...
