    NEC's New IPS Panels unveiled at CES, 2-5ms?

    I'm interested in buying a new monitor. I think IPS panels sound the most appealing. As a gamer, I can't buy the current IPS monitors because they usually have 8-15ms response time. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on new monitor technology in January/February. If I buy now, I'd go...

    Best Gaming 24 Inch for 300-400?

    I've seen recommendations for cheaper, and more expensive monitors, but nothing for gamers in this price range.

    Hi. I'm thinking of building some new computer guts in the near future. I heard there might be a Bloomfield 930 coming out? It sounds like by then USB 3.0 and SATA 6 will be standard. How do you think the 930 prices, and 920 prices will be, when the 930 drops?

    What is the difference between the 920 and 860?

    The only noticeable change I can see if they are different sockets. Does the 860 support ECC, and have higher clockspeed than the 920 at the same price? I cant see a reason to build a 920 rig when a 860 rig would be cheaper, and faster?
