well for starters the i7 will beat the i5 but i think we can cut it a bit you dont need the 2 gig gpu unless you playing above 1920x1200 and 1000 watts is a lil overkill the corsair 850 will power 2 gpu's right up to 2 gtx285's
September 7, 2009 4:47:30 PM

forgot to mention
Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Rewritable Drive Black SATA Model AD-7240S-0B - OEM $34

and the psu dropped off $100 have
CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply - Retail

i m gonna hold off till 5k cards come out maybe others will drop a lil, i heard 285 aren t worth the cash tho may as well go 275's

Maximum Resolution: 1920 x 1200
Recommended Resolution: 1920 x 1200
Viewing Angle: 170°(H) / 160°(V)

September 7, 2009 6:20:39 PM

I was missing around and found that you opened a new thread so ...................... .

Any way here you go:
for the monitor get the 24" one as i far as i know better contrast equal better reception for your eye and personal safety comes first ;)  , And it's 1080 P (or "1080 I" ?)
I'll update later with other suggestions but ............. .

Just Wait.
September 7, 2009 6:22:48 PM

do you want a 2ms screen cuz you wont really notice a difference between 5ms an 2ms while gaming
September 7, 2009 6:23:26 PM

Wait a minute some things I can't understand in your posts so could you please provide LINKs, this would be great help as I can't make any suggestions without specific detailed Info.

Regards.

If you go with a 4890, there's no advantage to the 2GB model. Save yourself $50 and buy the 1GB.
September 7, 2009 9:28:40 PM

Then make it like LINK]TEXT(page's name)[/i]

Sorry for the font as I can't properly use the mouse to type (Guess I'm not the only one here!!)

September 7, 2009 10:56:04 PM

@screenfried if you want to post the links only without a mask
use this method instead:

LINK Location]LINK Location

Like:
- [urlExt=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236047&Tpk=vw266h]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236047&Tpk=vw266h[/urlExt]

- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236047&Tpk=vw266h

Or just copy->paste the regular link:
like:
- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824005126&Tpk=lg%20w2453v

- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Both work so the 2nd is faster.
Only use the First method to MASK the URL.
September 7, 2009 10:57:10 PM

September 7, 2009 10:59:14 PM

The address bar.
September 7, 2009 11:05:12 PM

Well I made the links work so I think the choice is simple, go with the 24" LG as LG is better known for monitors than Asus.
Oh and don't forget to post the links for any other device you want another thought about.

Regards.
September 7, 2009 11:08:42 PM

Just Copy and paste the address from the address bar to the text space and it will work.
September 7, 2009 11:13:27 PM

September 7, 2009 11:20:02 PM
