IPS MONITOR HELP / PSU HELP / GENERAL ADVICE NEEDED
I am currently in the process of designing a new gaming rig, and of course I am want some opinions other than my own before I break the bank!!
Here it is so far:
CPU INTEL I5 2500k MOBO ASUS p8p67 evo rev 3.1 RAM G.SKILLS 8gb (2x4) Ripjaw X 1600 DDR3 @ 8-8-8-24 GPU MSI Radeon 6950 Twin Frozr 3 2gb (one for now, Xfire later) HDD WD Velociraptor @ 10000 rpm ( I already own this, will upgrade to SSD when it makes sense!!!) CASE Coolermaster HAF X (I like BIG cases with BIG fans, my other one is an antec 1200) PSU Corsair CMPSU-850TX v2 850w MONITOR DELL u2412m
And of course I have a couple of questions!
Online all IPS monitors are getting mixed reviews as far as gaming is concerned. What are your thoughts on the Dell I mentioned earlier? (PLEASE DON'T COMMENT ON THE MONITOR IF YOU HAVE NEVER USED THE DELL U2412M)
And while I believe I will be very happy with 24" of 1920x1200 gaming @60hz and about a trillion colors....
1) are these 2 issues big enough (anti glare coating/overdrive reverse ghosting)? Should I be looking at something else? Unfortunately testing the monitor for myself is not an option because of my remote location, even returning something is not easy.
2)Should I be looking above 24" or is there nothing reasonable out there
3)Are there better 24" IPS monitors that don't cost twice as much?
4)16:10 is still cool for games right?
5)Is the PSU overkill or futureproof? (Modular is a non issue)
4)Is there any other advice, or anything you would change in the build above? Feel free to rip it to bits

2.) Personal Choice 4.) Personal Opinion 5.) The 850w is pretty good. Although, a 750w would be sufficient enough and have enough headroom.
Opinions and choices are EXACTLY what I am after...
That was a nice comparison. Way I see it 16:10 feels much more natural while gaming than 16:9. Still if anyone has actually used the u2412m or would like to suggest an alternative they are happy with, or comment on the rest of the build please write
