Well this is the thing, my desk isn't that big and a 17" CRT will take up a ton of space. I'm not even sure I could fit a keyboard on the desk with a monitor that big. I could get a bigger desk for like $100 but why do that when I could just use that $100 and invest in an LCD instead. See my point?
And I wont have to upgrade this thing for years if I don't want to. I didn't say I was building a machine for playing FEAR on max settings did I? It's just for internet and playing OLD games like Half Life 1 and Red Alert.
So does anyone have anything to say about the build I posted?
