Yeah, and there is also this big one: Newegg.com - Hanns·G HG-281DPB Black 27.5" 3ms Widescreen LCD HDMI Monitor 500 cd/m2 800:1 Built in Speakers - LCD Monitors

for like barely any more that that one you guys like. It has the same res too, so it's not like you're going to need anything more to run it good. I'm no monitor expert, but it seems to have almost the specs as the one I posted meaning, therefore, just as good. I guess it starts out kinda bright, but you can just adjust it.

^ I think that's too big for a gaming pc. Especially if you sit right in front of it, I think I would go crazy staring into that thing while gaming.

Yea that one is nice and big BUT, I sit only about 3' away from the monitor so i would have to turn my head to see from one side to the other.

Idk, maybe. I have a 32" lcd tv, and I get up as close as like 4' from it when I'm playing kz2. My monitor is 24", and I'm usually 2-3' from that. Hmmm, it might work. If you're having doubts about it, go for one of the other 2. I really don't think it would be bad though. I mean, veedub is on a 30", right? I know he doesn't have the most beastly rig ever just for benching. There is no reason to have a 30" for that, to my knowledge at least.

PS: GT, you changed your name. What's that about?

Well I just got home and been looking at all of the parts from the recommendation and I am not sure if I will be able to get the ram and the GPU combo. Not sure if I will be able to $ all of that in 1 check. If I part it should I still just get both of those or what?

If you can't afford it in one check, then you can still buy them separate. Get the OCZ Golds cause that's a good deal for those.

You can get a cheaper GTX 285 actually:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-N285-1GH-B GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - MSI N285GTX-T2D1G-OC GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

But the Evga has a lifetime warranty.

Well I do not mind spending more on individual parts. Just the combo is pushing it at one time.

Any kinda of Warranty is a big PLUS.

How many paychecks is this going to take you? If you're going to take over a month to get this stuff, why don't you just save your money up until you have enough? Stuff gets cheaper the longer you wait.

And yeah, eVGA will cover you ocing, so that is a huge +.

Will take about a month. If I keep getting parts time will go by faster to me then if i just sit there with the money which I will not be able to do. If I have it I spend it lol.

Still taking suggestions on the original imput.

I like lots of feedback before I move forward with things.
