Monitors sold. Thanks for your interest everyone.
Changing my setup a bit. Time to make things more portable.
Nothing wrong with them, I'm looking for a 120hz 24-27" panel to drag to LANs.
$SOLD each shipped in their original packaging, Fedex with tracking.
I almost went i7 860. Was a very hard decision to make. I haven't setup surround yet. But after the issues I was having with my Display port adapter turning off my center monitor mid CEVO match with Eyefinity I'm very excited.
Also using a Logitech G13 and G9x.
Not sure about that G31 board. The easiest way to find out is to try though. Even if you could get it up to 2.5ghz like in the article that would be worth something.
Edit: here is someone who got theirs up past 3Ghz.
I've been fighting back in forth about this for the last few weeks also.
I ended up going with the Forte because of the PCIe, X-FI, Headphone amp.
refurbished is cheap right now at 90+shipping.
This is single blind, this is how we do single bind placebo.
In a double blind, A would not know product 1 vs. 2.
Person 1 not knowing is what makes it a DOUBLE blind.
In a double blind A would be given product 1 and 2, both labeled as X.
