Thread: Building a computer? Need advice/suggestions? Come here!

    Re: Building a computer? Need advice/suggestions? Come here!

    2011 motherboards are still in the $450+ price range here (versus $220), which is pretty far out of my price range. I expect that this setup will last me the next few years at least so i'm not too worried about buying another motherboard further down the line.

    Well, the idea is to NOT buy a new motherboard, just a CPU... =ū

    That sucks about the pricing though. Over here, Z77 and X79 motherboards of similar capability can be found for near-identical prices, and the entry-level LGA 2011 CPU is the same price as the top-tier LGA 1155.

    2011 CPUs are similarly priced to older sockets (some cheaper in fact), but motherboards are still stupidly priced. It'd be pointless for me to spend an extra $300 on a 2011 motherboard when it'll cost me less than that further down the line to get one.

    price drops and intel usually don't go together. At least not in the consumer friendly sense.

    Hey Modacity, maybe you can help me.

    What I'd like to do is run 2 VGA inputs to a single monitor. I've heard of KVM switches, but all the ones I can find seem to be for running one input to multiple monitors, which is the exact opposite of what I need. Does anyone know of a switch or something I could get where I'd be able to easily run multiple inputs to the same monitor?

    Not saying you should get this one in particular as I have no idea on its quality but hopefully it can point you in the right direction.
    Failing that you could get a monitor from this decade and use digital inputs instead.

    There is a DVI input but the quality seriously blows compared to the VGA. Last time I tried it the colors were badly washed out. Maybe it was just the cable I used, idk. Anyway this monitor doesn't have any kind of switch or anything to change between DVI and VGA. The Xbox 360 w/ VGA cable is the other input I'm wanting, btw.

    I was going to suggest using DVI. If the colours were washed out, then it was most likely that the cable was damaged. DVI is supposedly better than VGA, but most people cannot tell the difference. I use DVI because my monitor requires it to enable certain features. The Digital signal just works better or something like that. I'd say try a different DVI cable before buying osme elaborate piece of hardware. I do exactly what you want to do with my own monitor. DVI comes from Desktop GPU and VGA comes from laptop. I press the source button to switch between the two.

    There's no source button on the monitor that I know of though. Maybe the function will appear once it's connected.
