fisrt thought would be to post your current dell's system specs to make sure we're not advising you parts that would be bottlenecked by your existing components.
second thought is most dells use a nonstandard form factor for thier powersupplies so you have to either get a dell powersupply or live with the psu being only held in by one or two points caause it doesn't line up right. you could drill new holes fairly easily if you wanna keep the current case but you'll wannt remove all the compnents first and make sure to blow it out real good so there are no metal shavings in the case
for the moment lets ignore my current machine. I do understand fully that it might no be compatiable with my current setup. I'd be willing to do a bit of rejigging though e.g. drill a few holes etc.
My main issue was getting a graphics card and monitor combo that work really well together e.g. exact horizontal and vertical refresh rates, clear sharp easy to see text and crystal clear video and gaming experience.
So i'm willing to go high end on montior and mid to high on graphics card.
Yea at the moment that dell seems to be the winner. Quick question, why is hyper glassy finish a bad thing?
Glossy isn't bad, I actually prefer it over matte.
But After trying 27incher at the apple store, the glare is HORRIBLE. Especially since it so big, you really have to control your lighting to see a clear image.
