Thanks for the review. Wish I had this gpu. It would definetly be on my short list, depending on price, when it comes time to upgrade.

FYI, I think the first sentence of the first 2 paragraphs are missing words: “...and these who does...” and “On the surface this really not all...”.

This one should be the bang for buck champ for a little while.

Thanks for the review!

Haha, $2?  Ebay or local?

Edit: looks like it’s equivalent to an 8400 GS

That actually does not look bad at all. I remember spending like $600 on a similar spec screen a few years back

Yeah I don’t get it. Every other monitor similar is quite a bit more $.

I have been waiting forever for what I was considering a good bang for buck monitor (in my mind 1440p, 24ish inch, non-TN, >60hz and keeping cost down.

My wait has been futile. However, I have just stumbled on the VA2719-2K, and it hits most boxes...1440p, IPS, 27” (which I am ok with), and 60hz (though the minimal info I can find online has people OCing it to 75-80hz).

There are pretty much no reviews and minimal info available for it, but I can get it new for $300 out the door from a local store...seems crazy cheap. I am in Australia, but the $ is pretty much on par.

Glad to hear the stressful part is you need to settle in.

Local computer store had crap for thermal paste. Just ordered some mx-4 off eBay. Hopefully it doesn’t take too long, so I can do the cpu swap. Haven’t used mx-4 before, but it seems well liked and reviewed.

Damn nice finds, still hunting for a 2500-2700 1155 right now for my son,

Also photobucket has gone to money grubbing hell so I recommend switching to imgur for your images :)

keep us posted

Will do. I didn’t realise photobucket was useless now...I will switch when I get a chance. If only you weren’t on the other side of the world it would be worth it to grab one of these PCs just the the 2600. Some of the ones with scrapped up cases have gone for $50.

Hey everyone.

I just bought 2 more random HP SFF PCs (I bought one last year that I am using as a TV box with an i5 2400 and 4gb ram). The local auction site here has been clearing out mass quantities of them from a hospital that closed. Never hard drives in them.

One is an i7 2600 with 8gb ram that I got for $70+15%auction fee ($80.50total). I recently grabbed a 120gb WD green SSD for $59 all in during black friday sales that will be going in this PC. Between this PC and my current TV box (mentioned above), I will keep one and give one to my grandparents when I get back to Canada.

The other is an i7 3770 and 8gb ram purchased for $90 ($103.50 after auction fee). This one I am robbing of parts. The 3770 is going in my main desktop to replace my 3570k (ivy bridge non-k can be overclocked by 4 multipliers, so it isn't going to affect freq from how I am running the 3570k). And the 2x4gb ram was just put in my desktop to bring me up to 16gb total.

One frustration I am having is that ram timings aren't playing the game. Even if I set timings in the bios it isn't forcing them...non JEDEC and not what I set. No idea what is happening. Anyone had this issue before. Either way I will keep the ram installed, since it is still running near what I want and it is doubling the capacity.

Now I just need to buy some thermal paste soon to get the CPU swapped.

Good times.

Ram that was pulled

Forgot to put a pic of the 3770 awaiting transplant.
