Default 3 Questions....

1. Does it really matter what brand of 7800GTX you buy? I know most people here would recommend eVGA but what about this card,

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814170087

2. What size of PSU would be required to power the setup in my sig? I was going to go with a 550W SLI certified PSU but it's unlikely that I'll ever go SLI so that is kind of a waste. What size PSU do I need for OCing?

3. What is the best 19" CRT monitor?

1) it does but it doesnt. it does but it doesnt count if you go for eVGA, leadtek. etc.

2) just get anything good with at least 20A on the 12V line. brand name btw. yeah 500=600W, to be safe you can always buy a SLi ready psu

3)^^ what he said

1) Doesn't matter, that card looks fine.
2) ~above 500W.
3) Almost all the new CRTs that have came out are just fine. I like viewsonic, they make good products.
