Not really about a PC build specifically but anyone got any recommendation on 240hz monitors. I want to upgrade sometime in the next week or two but don't want to spend more than maybe £250-400. Both my current monitors are hella old.
I'm not a monitor buff, but just be aware that you need to be a bit careful buying monitors, as lots of companies will put (for example) 240 Hz which in reality is only achievable using an overdrive mode (think like RAM XMP overclocking but on a monitor) which is genuinely bad and gives massive overshoot, seen as visual artefacts like ghosting. I'm not saying this will necessarily happen, but a good monitor with a "lower" refresh rate can give you a far better experience than a cheap monitor with a "higher" refresh rate.
I'd recommend Hardware Unboxed on Youtube, they have some great monitor reviews and are pretty unbiased.

Thats usually not a problem anymore. The way to tell is the monitor will be advertised for 144Hz but the description will include the boost.

The cheaper brands absolutely still do. Not to say that there aren't good monitors at entry level pricing, but there's still significant difference between monitors at the same price point with similar specs.

I'll have a look thanks. That's why I was looking for some recommendations as I don't wanna waste all that money on a meh monitor.
I won lots of things, I came 2nd and 3rd in lots of things, I guess I did some other shit too........ I'm also an FSE legend, probably most commonly described as a cunt. If the shit I do doesn't make sense in your head, well fuck you because it makes sense in mine.

Which i did, against known and reputed player, some of them considered legend, such as, Mandarin, Ledger, Tiberias, Herishey, Hokej, Troister, Axiom, Evanovic, Stark, Eddie, Jammo, Bagins, Freddie, Python. I didn't had a good relationship with most of them, but i congratulate them for what they did, and i had pleasure facing them.

If anyone has some lower end cards they don't need I am looking to grab one. Was looking at picking up a 980 or lower end 10 series card for my 2nd PC but would rather buy from someone I know.

I think Hertz is upgrading from a 980 soon you might be able to get his one off him when he does.

I literally just bought one. A little on the expensive side but it probably would have came to around the same as if I bought from you along with the shipping.

Alright thanks for the comments.

What is SLI actually what does it do? I'm not experienced with these terms, I apology. But I'd like to know it before I buy something. xd

SLI = Scalable Link Interface
is a multi-GPU technology from Nvidia, which enables the interconnection of two or more graphics chips to increase performance when rendering (SLI Frame Rendering) or the use of up to four screens (SLI Multi View). :)

This GPU shortage is killing me.... I want a new 3000 series card. At this point I’ll have to wait for 4000.
