I ended up getting this Samsung (http://www.samsclub.com/sams/samsung-27-monitor/prod20171649.ip) PLS monitor about a week ago. After several days with this monitor, I am comfortable recommending it...

Ended up ordering the Pro-Gamer. I'm not an extreme overclocker, so hopefully it'll be good enough.

Hmm. According to techpowerup (http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/asus-z97-pro-gamer-review.208353/), it's an 8 phase VRM. I'm not the most educated on the electrical side, so I don't know.

So they finally replaced it, and the replacement still has the drive detection issues. I tested the drives again and they all work. So I called Gigabyte and they basically told me that it's a known...

Ended up calling Gigabyte, because they don't answer emails to support. They are finally going to replace my motherboard, and I got them to cover shipping both ways as well. I feel accomplished.

So on paper, both Sound Core3d and ALC1150 looks like it will have better audio quality than, or at least comparable to, my Audigy 2 ZS Platinum. So it's come to narrowing down the list, since it...

How does the Creative Sound Core3d compare to my ye olde Audigy 2 ZS Platinum? If I can find something that is at least equal in audio quality, I'm okay not using the card, and thereby getting a...

I'd like to have the option. When I got it, it was cheaper than the non-k version, but yeah, I would like to be able to. Nothing extreme, though. I'm not going to be doing the old DFI dry ice junk.

Nah, it'll probably be from Newegg or similar. Under (and up to) $150. Still haven't heard from Gigabyte, but I need to wait until my tax return comes in if I'm going to buy a new board.

Ended up getting a Corsair Strafe. I also got a new replacement plan, and because it is cheaper than the g710+, I ended up getting a $32 gift card from Best Buy.

I kind of prefer the smaller size of the K65. A little usb numerical keypad could live under the monitor shelf of my desk that I built, when not in use.

Though, another idea I had was to use the...

I'm leaning toward the K65 myself. I'd need to pick up a usb numerical keypad, as I use it fairly regularly, but it'd be nice to have the little bit of extra desk real estate when I'm not.
