    Gets close to the $1,500 mark. The 770 will be pretty good on that monitor now, but a 4GB 770 SLI pair will dominate a 780 :)

    That was literally the fastest response time on a forum I've ever witnessed. Well done I'll do that unless someone else can offer a better solution which I doubt but it's always possible. Thanks man.

    lol no problem. I'm sure there probably is some way to make it a little cheaper, but I'm not an expert in monitors so I don't want to mess with that. Case is a tad expensive too, but that's personal and aesthetic, so I don't mess with those lol

    my bad man its my first or second thread from over two years ago... I'm not hip with the rules and regulation let alone the know how in regards to properly posting threads. I didn't deliberately post two threads, the first time I tried it said there was an error so I just tried again and then I saw your response. How do I delete the other thread? Can I?
