yea I forgot about those, I added them then I saw that. BTW nice monitor. If he wants to go with a 24 inch with 1920 x 1200 resolution then I think he should go with the gtx 285 don't you think?
The he needs to change that PSU with the 850 wat
This asus monitor has a faster response time 2ms and it's 24inch and the contrast ratio is the same,
Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I'm gonna order my parts pretty soon, but just had one more question. I've seen a lot of people talk about Windows 7 beta these days. Is the most recent beta usable as a primary OS (especially when doing gaming or video editing) or should I just stick with Vista?
Well if you want you can CF that 4890, but I recommend waiting for the 1GHz versions to come out, get the OC version of that and then CF them for an insanely powerful CF set up. Will beat the GTX 285 SLI anyway. I still think it's better to pick up a monitor at a store though.
Save some money and go with two 4890s (OC'd) instead of the GTX 285. Here is a review on two 4890s in crossfire versus two GTX 285s in sli. While the 4890 is NOT overclocked. http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/gtx285sl...
In total the 4890 CF only loses to the GTX 285 in one review. Is $200 (2 cards) worth a few frames per second extra? And that is when the 4890 isn't overclocked. Look at this anandtech post, they overclock the 4890 and it ends up beating the gtx 285. http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3555
Oh and if you get the 1GHz version of the 4890, it will automatically beat the gtx 285 without any overclocking (the 1GHz version still gives room for even more overclocking, btw)
