Monitor: ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 w/Speakers & HDMI - $179.99
This total is $888.98 not including a new case thats 20usd plus for shipping. Its not like i really need a new monitor but im tired of missing my shows while gaming on my 42inch 1080p and playing on my low res monitor to.
I prefer to stay with AMD but will listen to why i should buy the I7 when the decent Mobos with Dual PCI express slots are outrageous in pricing. also the build is a must with the 5850.
