It's identical stuff, but with black colouring instead of blue. Also, the black stuff isn't in stock.

And thanks about the post count, I hadn't noticed

Btw, I recommend you get some of this
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/169203
It'll be better than the thermal paste which comes with the CPU cooler.

When are you thinking of ordering?

Btw, this looks like a great monitor, for the tidy sum of 1200 :P

I'm not actually recommending it btw.

How close will you be to this monitor? I have a 22" and my head is about 2 feet away from the screen and I cannot play games full screen otherwise it is too much for my eyes...so take that into consideration when looking at 30" monitors.

That's a good point, actually. If you're used to a 20" only a few feet from your face, going from that to a 27" might be a bit much unless you can keep the new one far away enough.

GPU, ram, processor and motherboard are out of stock at the moment..
Lead date for the GPU was 10th but has been delayed by the manufacturer
Lead date for the ram was 12th but has been delayed by the manufacturer
Lead date for the Processor and Motherboard is 13th but will probably be delayed knowing my luck XD

sucks >.<
