Ha ha, got you. No pictures here....luckily for both of us. But since you are clearly a pervert, I need your advice. Note:-there is a risk of humour, and considerable sarcasm, in this topic. If you are dull, boring, and frankly in any way a throbber, best go look at the MM thread and discuss Dunning Love Bucket theory, or whatever they are getting excited about over there. Just spare me the neg reps.

So the Comet killed me. How he saw me, I don't know. Must have been a hack. But that's not why I'm here. You see, a second after my demise, my mouse had a close encounter with the wall. Predictable, though it's subsequent trajectory was not, insofar as it went through my 1920x1080 monitor.......via the keyboard.  

So, in order to play, I now have to move the 50" telly upstairs to the man cave. In addition, thirty minutes in front of a 50" telly playing WoT leads to me having a head like Smeagol. Therefore, I need a good screen for £300 all in, preferably of higher resolution. I have a GTX980SC GPU.

 

All sensible suggestions welcome. The winner gets a naked picture. Of me. Best I can do, since she won't do it. Not after last time anyway. I thought everyone had heard of Gasmask Lovers Monthly ..........

 

Edit:-10 seconds from posting to first view. Not bad sex cases. Not bad at all; your ability to quickly detect a post of a potential pervyness (that's a Berlinism) nature does you and indeed all Forumites proud.

I was thinking this one...

Which event? The mouse hitting the screen? The Gasmask? My wife in a Gasmask throwing a mouse at the screen? Me with a head like Smeagol? I can't do anything till I get a new monitor.

Help me out here............

Can I have a picture of you throwing a gasmask at your waifu who is carrying a naked monitor and a mouse where you have a head like Smeagol, while you are looking at the 50'' screen?

I had a similar incident. I smashed my keyboard with my fist and one of the parts that went flying hit the screen (3 months old) and cracked it at the side.... 

 

I now have a Dell 27 inch. Not bad.

I was wondering what could be so desperate you would risk the ire of your wife. I hear very good things about dell. Cheap at the price and decent quality.

Ermm, it may be a typo on your behalf, but in the Royal Navy, this is a Wafu...

And as a former member of the RN, I would not have his kind in my street, let alone my house.

And certainly not naked apart from Mk10 respirator...........

Chuck that budget out the window. Even if you have to e-bay the gasmask pics, just do it and get this baby!!!

If you insist on being "sensible", or the pics don't fetch enough, there's always the £289 Samsung option:

Preferably the most visually dramatic one...

While I'm not an expert on monitors and that stuff my mate was building a PC and he told me about this one:

As far as I know he's happy with it and overall reviews aren't bad...

Berlin, you must have a black belt in wrong-fu.

 

Check 'lectronic repair shops.  You can usually find a good deal on something HDMI that got fixt and not paid for. (unclaimed)

Scratched and dinged display models can also be had for cheap, at the larger shops.

Samsung is my fave, too.  I like my 48" UE48H6400.  2 yrs old, and paid $150.00 US.

Craigslist deal, so it was probably stolen...
