This is what we have and it works well. We keep people from coming and bothering us by having a really creepy guy outside the entrance to our section.

We used to have managers outside the entrance but they didn't stop anyone like they were supposed to, and they were always distracting us by being on the phone or asking us for updates.

It will probably be a year before any monitors come out with the VESA standard Adaptive Sync. You can get GSYNC monitors now.

I used the GSYNC upgrade kit on my VG248QE in January and since experiencing GSYNC I could never go back. Everything is much smoother at all frame rates without stuttering or tearing or any of the added input latency standard VSYNC adds.
I can't wait for non-nvidia support, but it is a long ways out.

Our school computer lab used iMacs without any logins, OS6 or something. I made a million copies of the trashbin and spread them all over the desktop then hid the real one on one of the computers. Someone couldn't figure out how to eject their disk and had to have the teacher come over and help. He thought it was funny too.

Q: How many IBM CPU's does it take to execute a job? A: Four; three to hold it down, and one to rip its head off.
