    Which 24"+ LCD?

    can you point me to a wide gamut display that is less expensive than a standard gamut display? i don't recall seeing one being less expensive:confused:

    Which 24"+ LCD?

    reason dell cost more is that it's a wide gamut monitor. the HP is sRGB only the dell 24in is 96% adobeRGB that color gamut was what warranted the price increase over the HP but if OP doesn't care about wide gamut then HP is the better choice

    i7 860 setup vs i7 920.... which should I keep...

    i'd sell the 920 and keep the 860. lower electricity bill and runs cooler when you don't oc it..... and buy a new system when its too slow and needs to be upgraded. so don't need to worry about upgrade paths and whatnot. then again i'm not a [H]ard user....i just use one mainstream vidcard...

    Does nVidia have more clout with game developers than Ati?

    on the flipside of that why did you buy the gtx275 with physx when it wouldn't work with alot of games then? eyefinity and physx are both just features of the card... that are sometimes implemented and implemented correctly, and sometimes not... i find having more screen space when playing fps...

    Waste to upgrade video card?

    yea i hear BC2 is pretty heavy on physics so i think the cpu could've been the problem if your graphics slot is agp i it's not worth it to upgrade pcie? still not worth it. but then again i don't upgrade anything after i've finished building i just add more stuff

    RAID: 0? 1? 0+1? 1+0?

    RAID: 0? 1? 0+1? 1+0?

    not so sure about that sequential reads on SSD are anywhere from 60MB/s to 150MB/s faster than HDD and with random reads there's no contest. raptor's are faster than regular HDD, but now it's not a good way to spend your money when SSDs are about the same price but alot faster...

    SLI or Crossfire?

    2x260 is probably not much faster than the 5870.... why spend money on getting the same performance? and if drivers are immature right now they'll only get better so why spend more to get the same performance
