Get a bigger monitor. haha may as well. Get one of the new dell 30in.(3008 WFP) it has the new display port video out, which is the new hdmi for computers. Incase you want to upgrade down the road. It will cost you a lot though. or get the 24 in dell, I have one, and love it.

I will tell you right now that these 2 will give you issues. Just check around you will find that the X-Fi cards and Vista do not play nice. Plus by going by what you said in the Windows Area you want to test games on this. I can tell you that you will not get OpenGL or the 3D Surround without the ALchemy program in Vista.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
