Thanks for that setup, the only thing that is holding me back is the video card choice and that is actually related to your question. I am running on 1920x1200 on a 24" hd tv/monitor and was hoping to get a video card with HDMI computability, I believe the one that you suggested lacks that.
Is there another video card that you think would suit my needs at around the same price?
Also the board you suggested doesn't appear to be particularly stable. Do you think I would run into problems if I wanted to overclock this setup?
Once again thanks for the help
