well a HDD tends to slow down and become laggy if you use more then 50% of the drive space, so I don't plan to fill up more then 1/2 the listed capacity.
And I will be doing a lot of photo, music, and video editing, so space is gonna be used.
are any of these fantastically good? each one has a feature that I liked...

Power Supply (everything)
Harddrive (one I wanted sold out, don't understand RAID really)
GPU (one I wanted is sold out)
Monitor (Difficulty determining which ones are good, due to customer reviews being rather... well... retarded.)
Reading reviews on newegg is getting more difficult to determine if the product is faulty or if simply the user was a moron. WTF is raid5? and why would you need/use it? Several HDD have been listed to die after config, a couple reviews mention using Raid5 and other Raid settings, could that be the cause of the harddrives failure? User Error? (Seagate Barricuda 1+TB models with the .11 )
Monitors are the same way, every LCD has some bleed on a pure black screen (top and bottom usually due to the set up) but every review contains "it has horrible bleed" but no description of how bad, where, or typical bleed (the top and bottom on black screen) all the marketing crud has confused me rather then enlightened me, using different terms to describe the same parts.
So let me ask the Pros here, wtf monitor do I NEED? Iam looking for 22+ inch, around or under 300 US (including shipping) Computers primary use is games, MMORPGs, FPS, and other "high graphical" types, will play Diablo 3 like crazy, and that is intensive on the graphics. Might buy a TV tuner and watch TV on it, want nice crisp image and very clear fonts/text for reading. Do not need the insane1900xwhatever resolution recommended, have played on 1024x768 for years with most games going to default 800x600. Bigger is not better here for me.
21-22 inch WIDE max, as my desk has an alcove, I can trim some if its a tad bigger, and it gets bigger in the back so I can install it sideways then turn it if I need, but don't go insane on the width. possibly up to 26 inches wide, but keep in mind the Height can only be 19.5 inches, and thats almost NO room for air flow (but LCD don't really need Top air flow, just back and side) so W up to 26 inches, H only 19.7 inches, and 19.7 is including stand and all that- not a fraction more will fit.
Going to go babysit, but then I plan to use MS paint to make a virtual build to see if connections all fit and that stuff, it helps me visualize if I need another connector or a different PSU or whatever to make sure everything can be plugged in, and I scale it to make sure everything fits right inside. Wish there was a program that was already developed for "virtual building" however... be nice to have more accurate ways.
