Ok, got my desktops folder uploaded

Some nice nature porn in there, but none of it's tagged properly. It's all numbers.
You're welcome to scrape your own Windows 10 lock screens folder and see how much you feel like changing their names. There's only so many ways to say "pretty sunset." And you have to do it on a Surface Tablet, because I had to.

1080. Nice. And black is nice and practical. Definitely could be worse. Why wasn't it worth it though?
4K gaming is a myth and SLI support is dying. With 4K, you have to lower the graphics down to medium to get a constant 60fps, which defeats the purpose.

For SLI, in many games, my extra card is just wasted.
I always thought 4K was overkill compared to 1080p. And even with 1080p, for me, that's kinda high. I like my 900p monitor. Wide enough to do everything I would ever need but small enough to save on graphics performance.

You could just sell your second 1080 though for some nice extra cash.

I do like having two monitors.

I will say that 4k is nice for general usage. I can have a bunch of information displayed on the screen at once. Handy for programming.

Pretty much yeah. I'm running SLI 1080s too, but it's not really worth it.

Only reason I have the second one was because right after I got mine a guy I know from work needed money urgently, so he sold his near-new one dirt cheap. Don't particularly like the guy so I thought "hey, whatever, his loss, my gain". Considered reselling it, but then some stuff happened and I kind of forgot about it.

There is absolutely nothing on my desktop, not even an wallpaper. No shortcuts and task-bar is set to auto-hide. I barely use the start menu too.


I do file management with a third party file manager and launching programs with a third party launcher.

Specs?

8-Core AMD CPU;
GPU good enough for 1080p and some virtual reality;
32GB RAM;
256GB SSD;
10+ TB Disks;
Sound card;
VR head-set.

Edit: added more 16GB RAM, for a total of 32GB.

You'll have to post a little more. Pictures won't appear until you have 10 posts.

Your picture didn't take properly. It's just a grey screen.

EDIT: Oops. That's what I get for not reading the post fully.
