ACER is an EXCELLENT brand. I have a the Acer AL1714 sitting right beside my ViewSonic. If you're not a Hardcore gamer, then go with the Acer, definately. NO dead pixels, response time that feels faster than 8ms, excellent image clarity.

3000!!!!!! u can make the ULTIMATE system, im glad that you didn't look into Alienware like most people do if they had 3000$ cuz they think its the "best".

but yea with 3000 man.. serisouly i wouldnt spend all that on a computer lol. im trying to stay under 1200$ with mine, u should spend ike 1500$ and use the rest of the money in the future, for your car or use it when your going out with your friends. computer is not worth it, no matter how much you spend you will be out of date a month later, new stuff come and go.

Geez, if he wants to build a kickass PC then let him. $1500 CND won't get you much as far as jaw-dropping performance goes.
