I didn't bother to read any forum rules, because basically i need to just not act like a douchebag. Are there any rules against bumping?
I guess I'll have to start editing my posts to fit more into each.
Also, decided no on the IPS monitor, it's smaller, slower, and according to reviews, it has horrible backlighting issues.
