upgrade

i have 2 possible options here for my budget,

option 1

Athlon XP 2200+ t-bred
Asus A7N8X-Deluxe
128Mb Chaintech GT20 Ti4200
Scan '2010' ATX Midi Tower 350W
Corsair XMS 2 x 256Mb DDR 400MHz PC3200
MSI Dragonwriter CDRW 48 x 16 x 48

price £700 $1120

option 2

XP 2200+ t-bred
Gigabyte GA-7VAX KT400
128Mb Chaintech GT20 Ti4200 Ge-Force 4 DVi TV Out
19" - CRT Vision Master Pro 454
256Mb PC2700 (PC333) DDR Memory (Major)
jnc 300W very cheap case and PSU

£700 $1120

i have a 17'' monitor already (at least 3 years old) its ok but i guessing the VM 454 would be much better.
i want the machine for mainly gaming surfing, etc.
any opinions ??

  1. Looks good. I'd go with option 1 and get the Iiyama too.

    pricewatch.com, and
    go to http://forums.anandtech.com/categories.cfm?catid=40
    for hot deals people find
  2. If youve got a fairly old and cheapish mointor(17'' 4 years old), how much does this cancel out the graphics cards and other pc components ability to produce good quality fast picture ?
  3. option 2 for sure, a 19 CRT is a most :)
