Because my 250GB 840 Evo is very far past the total data written amount that Samsung recommends*:



This whole install took too long as my BIOS didn't support it. Luckily Asus had a new Beta BIOS out that added support for it although I now don't seem to have enough 'lanes to support another HDD on top of the two in there (plus this new one).


*still not dead at all.

A HDD doesn't take up any lanes so you should be fine.

On a side note, Special offer of £1 for a 1 month pass on the Windows store so took up the offer, Gonna play some State of Decay 2, Forza 4 and some Sea of Thieves

One day I will try one of those monitors. Like, the stupid high refresh rate ones. I actually don't mind gaming on my little 20" Apple Cinema display with the VSR set to 2560x1600. It offers amazing visual quality which is far less strenuous on the eyes up close.

It makes things seem really smooth, As my 2 main games of choice are Elite Dangerous and Fallout 76 I don't really need anything higher than 1080P and as it's 24" everything is within my vision

That stand though... If they would only do this monitor design, but with the specs and stand from the PG278QR, then it’d be an instant buy from me. As this tripod design just looks like that new Z tower design from In Win.

I'm Vesa mounting it so the stand is irrelevant as I finally got myself a Silverstone Vesa desk arm




Also snagged an older model Corsair Force GT 480GB for £50 from the bay.
