Additional Comments: Since i've learned so much from the guys on this website i'm going to ask about a second build I was considering. I tried to move some parts around to make room for a better video card and a good single monitor. Here they are...
Obviously the monitor and graphics card are the killers price wise here. I have an older 24" Dell that's done me well over the years. Bought it in 2006. I wanted to upgrade size wise but also wanted to take advantage of that video card. Is this all do able? Should I upgrade anything or downsize to a cheaper monitor?
I know I used NCIX for most everything. I'm not stuck on them. There prices are comparable to most other places i've been too (except they do charge shipping).
A truly amazing system with that GPU. I have a lot of respect for folks like you that are willing to dish out a grand for the latest and greatest in graphics cards. Without people like you the prices on a card like this wouldn't be around $500 in 4-6 months.
Thanks for the reply. I was iffy when considering this. Even though I have this much set aside for the system i've been considering getting the 670/680 and sticking with my old monitor. It still looks pretty good. There's a few options on it I think it's lacking but nothing huge. Dell UltraSharp 2407FP
