    It is white with blue, why does the Nivida no work with the free synce. I am kinda leaning to the Samsung because of the price and decent reviews.

    G-Sync is what nVidia created, and they wanted to license it to others. AMD and others created Free-Sync because they didn't want to pay for g-Sync and otherwise give that market share to nVidia.

    Since AMD owns ATI (nVidia's competitor)... they are just two companies fighting for more money really. So... that's why they aren't compatible. I know there are technical reasons, but really it's a Betamax/VHS battle more than anything.

    G-Sync is hardware based, and so it's a pricey (but arguably more reliable) addition to a monitor, while FreeSync is software-based. But yeah, it mostly comes down to the vendors trying to lock people into an ecosystem.

    Looks great, Rave! Like Alicia said...that cord management. Mine is a messy maze inside.

    How's it play? Any noticeable difference?

    It is wonderful very quite, does make a little heat in the room, but it has a lot going on inside. I can also tell a major difference with the new processor, and having balanced RAM. Total war with those high numbers, such as 6 army's of 5,000 all fighting at the same time does not even make the FPS move. Plus my old computer just had a normal HD, no SSD that alone it a wonderful touch. I basically love my new computer. I am sure there are more TECHY things, but I do how to express them.

    I wouldn't understand the techy things anyway. I just like it when it 'feels' right. Couldn't tell you exactly what that meant. Glad to hear you are loving it!
