I got it from Richer Sounds in Reigate. They were very helpful. Threw in an up-scaling Blu-Ray player too.

Ok guys, thanks for the responses.

I was looking at sky broadband purely because it seemed to make sense if getting the tv package. However, it looks like I may need to do some re thinking.

Broadband and tv providers for my new house?

I'm moving into a new home very soon and will be requiring broadband and Sky tv. Since I will be getting a Sky package, it would seem sensible to go for their TV and broadband package. However, if...

Based on my experience with gaming on the monitor so far, I would say that a single 290X will definitely not cut it. I'm running 4x 290s and still have to turn some features down. I also wouldn't...

My first 4k monitor

I've just taken the plunge into 4k (albeit more towards the budget end) with the ASUS PB287. Yes it is a TN panel, but I bought it for the sole purpose of gaming on, with my 30" IPS Dell still being...

I'm tempted to go with the advice of Mister_Tad here. I expect I will be looking to upgrade in 2-3 years anyway, so it seems it would make sense to go 1080p now and then upgrade when 4K is more...

I don't really fancy a projector setup. There are too many drawbacks. Mainly the requirement for low ambient light.

Yeah, but that's comparing two different panel technologies, so doesn't really mean anything. Obviously the TN panels are much cheaper. It's the IPS panels that carry the premium price.

For gaming you should be fine. During Crysis 3, my rig pulls around 1150w from the wall. It is only when I start mining or stress testing that this goes up to 1600w power draw.
