After years of gaming on my PC via my Sofa and TV, I'm going to turn my Spare room into an Office/PC Game Room with PC/Desk/monitor setup, and I could do with some advice please. It'll be mostly used (99%) for Gaming:
- Is there a size of monitor that is best to go for? 24", 27", 32" or is it really down to personal taste? - Resolution - I have a GTX1080, 16GB RAM, and an ok Processor, so my rig isn't really up to 4k Gaming just yet, (prob 2560×1440 at most) Am I best to buy a Monitor with a native 1140p Native res (does such a thing exist?) or it it best to go for a 4k capable monitor and then just run at 1140? - Gsync, is it worth it? I am a stickler for Frame Rates and hate anything below 60fps. - Monitors that can display above 60FPS, again is it worth it? never seen one in the flesh as my TV was limited to 60 - Any makes or brands I should be looking out for or avoiding? - Any good deals at the moment I should be aware of?
500 I think. I actually got a monitor half that price when I built my pc but I didn't like it, plus it had a fault so I sent it back and spent money on a really good one. I can take some photos of it later if you like? Very very nice.

That HP laptop I bought as a temp substitute earlier this year is now proving to be a bit of a pain in the arse. Sometimes it doesn't even have the power to run YouTube video properly, and it can't multitask at all. It's basic to the extreme, but it's now rather frustrating.
Can you increase the RAM and change the hard drive for an SSD?
Iiyama monitor all set up and working perfectly, had my old LG one (23" IPS) connected via DVI and this one connected via DisplayPort and while both monitors are the same resolution the difference in picture quality is immediately noticeable, text is sharper and black actually looks black (as opposed to dark grey).
We've been having some serious problems at work recently.
We all use Surface Pro 4 devices and some of us have Bitlocker running (out of choice) and others do not. Four members of the team who have never set Bitlocker up have suddenly had it forced upon their devices (we think after the recent Windows update) and do not know how to get past it launch (as a code was never set up). All of them have had to fully reset their devices to factory settings, and have even lost all their data that was associated with their cloud accounts (One Note etc).
Google doesn't quite seem to be coming up with anything that matches our experience here - some entries talked about Bitlocker ransomware, but this doesn't seem to fit the bill, and the solutions for that all require being logged in at the desktop that we cannot get to.
