  • I am in the process of building two new desktop pc's based on the I7 5820K. I have this week purchased two ASUS GTX960 DC2 OC STRIX 2GB DDR5. http://www.asus.com/uk/Graphics_Cards/STRIXGTX960DC2OC2GD5/
  • Hi larry, As a photographer I use predominately Nikon cameras and lenses as well as quite a few Sigma lenses. Because I almost always shoot in RAW the software that I tend to use most is good old ...
  • Hi larry, I looked at lots of alternative system configurations before deciding on the 5820K. Most of the software I use utilises the multiple cores of a cpu. I seriously considered the 4790K route ...
  • Hi Pictus, Thanks for that input. As far as glasses go, I have tried varifocal@s but keep falling over when wearing them. I just cannot get on with them, so I have glasses all over the place. A ...
  • Hi PIctus, I appreciate your input, thank you. After some further research and more discussions with my preferred supplier, they have come up with an alternative to the NEC EA244WMi that they can ...
  • Thank you very much for that information. I asked about the NEC because my preferred supplier is doing me some superb deals on the components for my latest builds but they cannot supply the Dell ...
  • Created discussions NEC EA244WMi Monitor
    Do any of you folks use the NEC EA244WMi monitor for photo editing? I would appreciate any comments as to how this monitor stacks up to the task of achieving accurately edited images. I have looked ...
  • Hi Fenwoodian, For many years I have been using Nikon gear and have a fairly heavy investment into that system. I do use quite a few Sigma Nikon mount lenses including the Sigma 300-800mm lens. I ...
  • Hi xpatUSA, don't worry about being OT. It is the same with the € to £ exchange rate. the £ has lost 7 cents (€) in the last couple of days and I spend a fair bit of time in the Euro zone ...
  • Hi Scottelly, With respect, I think that you are mistaken. I am in the UK where we always have to pay a much higher price than in the USA. usually between 25% and 40% more for the same products. ...
  • Created discussions Selling my Sigma Gear
    Just a heads up, I have (sadly) put my Sigma gear up for sale on the For Sale Forum. All mint and virtually unused. Please have a look if you after a Sigma set up.

  • Grab a bargain. After much deliberation I am offering for sale the following items as a package, 1 x Sigma SD15 DSLR. Only 148 shutter actions (Yes, 148). Comes with all original leads, charger, ...
  • Hi FrEersels, Many thanks for your comments. They are very helpful and are appreciated. Although the Dell looks like a reasonable deal I think it will need to much modification to give exactly what ...
  • Hi Jim, Thank you for your help. Although the Dell link that you provided was to Dell's New Zealand site it did give me sufficient pointers to enable me to wade through Dells UK site and track down ...
  • Hi Austinian, Thank you for your input. Interesting comment about the noise levels. It is this lack of specification and component detail that has led me to ask on this Forum about the Dell. I have ...
  • It's time to add another pc to my setup primarily for photo editing. Rather than go the custom build route this time I found the following specified machine from Dell refurbished, Dell Alienware ...
  • Thank you for your confirmation. I was interested as it is a 4k unit. I will stick with my ASUS monitors for the moment, but they are getting a bit old now and not as pristine as they used  to be. ...
  • Is anyone out there using this Dell monitor for photo editing in single or dual format? http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/dell-p2815q-monitor?c=uk&cs=ukdhs1&l=en&s=dhs ...
