    I am deciding between these 2 ps's and am having trouble deciding which is the better value. I have read all of the Plat 1000 review and it appears to be a near flawless unit.

    Will the trend of higher power requirments continue or has green taken over?

    NEC EA231wmi vs. HP LP2465 for eyefinity setup?

    I am interested in both of these monitors and was wondering what you guys thought. I am a casual gamer than wants to go eyefinity and am interested in doing a Portrait 3x1 (and eventually 5x1) eyefinity setup. I know TN panels are out of the question because of the horrible viewing angles I...
