Also, no monitor in there.

Thank you very much yet again! is it worth overclocking it while im in there? m 0 l Need Help_71 May 18, 2012 2:16:55 PM +1 ^ m 0 l ddan49 May 18, 2012 6:38:05 PM It is definitely worth overclocking! If you don't want to (and I don't see why not), make sure to say so so that I can tweak it and save you a little bit of money. m 0 l y0ud May 19, 2012 12:02:24 AM ripper! sounds good m 0 l y0ud May 19, 2012 7:00:21 AM what things in paticular should i be looking for in a good monitor for photo/video editing? m 0 l azeem40 a b 4 Gaming May 19, 2012 7:28:30 AM Image quality and viewing angles, so if you game and video edit, an IPS panel is the best. m 0 l hellfire24 May 19, 2012 7:31:09 AM yeah for pro works like video editing and stuff IPS is great. m 0 l azeem40 a b 4 Gaming May 19, 2012 7:40:04 AM That is true, but it is by no means worse for gaming. You most likely will not notice ms differences below 8ms, so combined with good viewing angles, it makes IPS just as good. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
