More about help 1800 wait
  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. trying to decide on monitor now

    1rst pick LG W2453V-PF Black 24" 2ms(GTG) Full HD 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor - Retail
    1920 x 1080
    50000:1 $290
    D-Sub DVI HDMI ..........................................^.................................................

    2nd pick ASUS VW266H Black 25.5" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor - Retail
    Maximum Resolution: 1920 x 1200
    Recommended Resolution: 1920 x 1200
    Viewing Angle: 170°(H) / 160°(V)
    Pixel Pitch: 0.287mm
    Display Colors: 16.7 Million
    Brightness: 300 cd/m2
    Contrast Ratio: 1000:1 (ASCR 20000:1) $279
    Display Type: WUXGA ....................................^.......................................

    like the size of the 26 but the 24 has better contrast ratio ? plus its hd 1080 ?
  4. 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.
  5. do you want a 2ms screen cuz you wont really notice a difference between 5ms an 2ms while gaming
  6. 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.
  7. If you go with a 4890, there's no advantage to the 2GB model. Save yourself $50 and buy the 1GB.
  8. Links Please!!
  9. they are both on newegg lol i don t know how to make links i m a gamer strictly almost new at one time and forgot check newegg for

    ASUS VW266H

    LG W2453V

    but dude the 24 definatly better cause its hd

    and 1080p isa P

    sorry guess i shouldn t of asked
  10. I'll see what I can do, and here's how to make links:





    Then make it like [url=LINK]TEXT(page's name)

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

    Regards.
  11. will i need wire extenders or any other accessories

    just so i have it all and don t need to order more

    ok where do i learn to link phsyco sorry i suck at this chat stuff haven t had to ask b4 hence why i bought at alienware
  12. oh nvm i was using quick reply i ll check that out'
  13. @screenfried if you want to post the links only without a mask
    use this method instead:

    LINK Location

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

    - 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=N82E16824005126&Tpk=lg%20w2453v

    Both work so the 2nd is faster.
    Only use the First method to MASK the URL.
  14. lol i don t get it sob i can t link wtf where are u guys copying it from in the first place
  15. screenfried said:
    ... where are u guys copying it from in the first place

    The address bar.
  16. 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.
  17. Just Copy and paste the address from the address bar to the text space and it will work.
  18. let me work this link thing out

  21. I didn't notice anything for the LG 24" saying it's touchscreen.
    Regards.
