    What 4K TV do you use if you don't mind sharing? I am going to Best Buy this weekend to look at a few models. I hope they have Sony XBR43X800E on display - seems to have pretty good review.

    Current 43" 4K options?

    I been trying to decide getting one of these 4K TV vs Dell UltraSharp U3017 (2560x1600). I can get U3017 for ~$600. I am using this mostly for programming and office work, so picture/text quality is more important than input lag. Any advice/thoughts? I have older Dell 30 inch in my other...

    Just FYI. It seems that PCIe 1x is a better solution - if your board has one.

    Is it possible to have three monitors with 460 GTX + 430GT PCI card??

    Thanks limitedaccess! I almost bought an old PCI Quadro. I figure NVIDIA and AMD would not work, but Geforce and Quadro should work since they are produced from same company :) Yes, my 460 is already output to 2 monitors.

    Anyone bought a 2007FP from Dell lately?

    Funny that you and I did the same thing. I had 3 monitors in my cart, then I called DFS. He said 2 of them are IPS, one is not. So I bought the IPS ones. I really hope the CS really knows what he is talking about, and give me the correct monitors.
