    ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe is the way to go, it has the 790FX chipset(Same as the 790GX except without the integrated graphics which you don't need and has full PCI-E bandwidth in Crossfire.) paired with a 750 southbridge which is always nice. It's foward compatible with the Phenom II which is why I...

    Firefox 2 Officially Retired

    Never had much luck with Firefox 3, it crashes a lot for me and doesn't offer anything over 2. I made the move to Chrome which it works fine since I'm not big on extensions anyway.

    BenQ E2400HD Review

    Most modern games support 1920 x 1080, the only recent(kinda) game that I own that does not is Battlefield 2 and I suspect DICE's lazy programmers is to blame in that case.

    Phenom II 920 / 940 for sale @ NCIX

    While it's tempting to buy a 940 at launch my 2.6GHz seems to be doing an alright job as is and it might be better to wait for a potential 3.2 GHz version in the future.

    i7 has a TLB BUG

    It only mattered in AMD's case because it was blown completely out of proportion and they made the patch mandatory in Vista Service Pack 1 which killed performance.

    please help me choose a monitor.. im begging you :p

    For the BenQ just use the link I posted earlier and grab the two codes and buy it direct from BenQ. It's not sold in too many places anymore especially at that pricepoint. For any other monitors I'd try Tigerdirect since they appear to have a decent monitor return policy.

    please help me choose a monitor.. im begging you :p

    It's far better than the HannsG (28" I'm assuming?) in that it has better color reproduction and no limited viewing angles since it uses an MVA panel rather than a TN like most monitors. I like to watch movies on my computer so it's worth it for me but if your used to a TN panel anyway(They tend...

It's one of the few affordable MVA/PVA monitors which have better colors and also has an HDMI port if you...

    benq G2400WD or the E2200HD?

    I'd get the G2400WD, It's larger and you can just use 1:1 for black bars in movies. I like that it isn't glossy too, makes it less of a dust/fingerprint magnet.
