Current PC Audio Setup

Introduction I’ve spent a lot of years building up the audio setup on my gaming/editing PC.  The parts are listed in the “Audio” section of this page.  I figured I’d write up a long post describing what’s connected to what, why I did it the way I did, and the reason for purchasing the things I have.  Bear in…

NVidia 4K Display Limits: Card Bandwidth?

Good luck struck me recently and I was able to get my hands on the brand new Asus ROG Swift PG27UQ display.  This 27″ LCD can do 4K at 144Hz and features NVidia’s GSync technology.  It’s not an inexpensive display at $2000.  Nor is it readily available yet.  I was fortunate enough that my local Microcenter had six of them…
