I do video editing so its not just for games, so I wanted the I7 for that and mainly cost considerations for the 22 and GTX 260. I was thinking 24" at same res and I am pretty sure for what I have seen that the 260 will drive most games on high quality. Going to wait a bit for the newer cards to drop down a bit... then swap this card to my sons comp and get a new one.
If you've got some cost effective alternatives let me know... budget smudget.... just dont tell the wife right?
I appreciate the thermal compound info... I think I may swap that out... AS5 is just what I am used to.
nah I dont have any AS5 on hand so I will grab something else off the list. Well sounds good then... making my purchase tomorrow. thanks everyone... I will be back to give an update on the Ocing and what not...
