Never heard of Soyo either, but that is one great deal, especially for a 24".

ouch i know how that goes.

oh and by the way on the x2's i actually put together a much talked about x2 3600+ and tforce 550 combo for my mom's home office computer and i played around and got it up to 2.9ghz with ease. im sure those 5200+ will go higher.

and that doesn't look to bad, i don't know if i'd trust the brand though, but for $300 a 24" sounds like it would fit quite nicely on my desk.

i might just end up instead buying a new mobo and my 2nd gig of ram instead... we will see.. depends how money flows this friday

i could just throw down for an x2900xt if i wanted to, but my psu probably wouldnt like that... 450 watt Rosewill POS

okay.. lol i feel like a moron... but after looking through everything.... my psu can handle higher than i thought... soooo with that said... i'm a moron, and i'm going to sell off my 8600gts and buy an 8800gts 320 mb... lol, i feel like an idiot
