I know of three good 30" ones. The Dell, Apple, and Samsung:
Dell 30" UltraSharp Widescreen Flat Panel Monitor

Newegg.com - Apple M9179LL/A Silver 30" 14ms Widescreen WUXGA Mac Display - Retail

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG SyncMaster 305T Black 30" 6ms(GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 400 cd/m2 1000:1 - Retail

The Samsung, has the better specs, and also cheaper, than the other two.

Ye, i like the apple one. I see that screen everyday at work.

Oh speaking of apple. Should I have spent $2,500 and get this.....

CompUSA.com: Apple Mac Pro Quad-Core Minitower - MA356LL A - Computers Ľ Business PCs

I think I get only $200.00 Off of that price.

Should i have gotten that instead of building this build....

Wish list details

Please tell me "**** NO" so i wont feel bad getting all those expensive parts and I could have gotten a good deal on the apple computer.

That has a Quad processor too....... the apple one.
