900 is probably the best bang for your buck now with the Antec 900-2 out for 139ish.

With 1 card it'll be plenty of room. As i said before in another thread, 3 holes in the tray and it's even better.
ya i was looking at the 900-2s but for 20bucks more the 1200 is a much better deal. as far as the 900 goes for $100 i think ide go with the wind tunnel over the 900.

not bad, but i just looked in my bank and i have $300 more in there than i thought i did lol (my play account, not the account i use for bills/grocerys) so i think ill be able to afford the 1200 + the monitor i wanted + the cd drive + maybe even a water cooling system, i just gotta check the price of the water coolers, if not i might be able to get a new heatsink, but then again the standard i7 heatsink works just fine since im not going to overclock, my main concern is only the gpu, but i can always look into different gpu fans.

im willing to spend up to $400 total for everything, including the 23" monitor and the dvd drive and the case, along with anything else, which would put my pc total at like $1,500 or around it(rest of the parts are already purchased and built)

this is what i decided to go with and i just looked at all my other parts. guess i ended up spending $1,700 total o.O lol when i originally was planning on spending $1,200 max =/

Its a great build, should last you a while. Nice choice on the monitor and case, the 1200 is a beast

Your build is similar to mine. I received the Samsung 2343bwx today. So far so good. No dead pixels or anything. Looks great.

The only problem though is setting it up. I still dont understand much of this "calibrating" deal.

How do you like this LCD so far?
