You will get more performance getting a 4800 and a 512mb GTX or a X1900Xt or XTX and still having money left over for bear or accessories.

This will be like a wet fish slapping you in the face: http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets...spx?i=2668&p=8 (No it isn't a picture of someone getting hit by a wet fish in the face.)

the 4400+ can get to the 4800 level on stock volts saving you 300 or so and it can easilly get to FX-60 levels or higher as well. Note that both the 4400, 4800, FX-60, and some opterons I think have the same core.


I also do recall some members having one of those 30' Apple Theaters.

Well they both have the exact same specs, the only difference is that the samsung uses less power, so I'd get that, but then again, it's rather pricy, but on second thought so is the other one! While you're at it, do you think you could pick up me one of those as well

yeah i saw em, can get em so cheap they are tempting....but the 12ms response time, compared to 6ms of the Samsung and Acer, make it kinda iffy. like, if i blow all my money on my computer i may have to get a dell instead =)

The Dell isn't bad, but don't pay their retail. Rarely they will have it at 999, if you want it, do that.

The 12ms isnt TOO huge, because i read a lot of revies on all three of them and there isnt ghosting in any of them. Also dell's 12ms is probably black-white, not gray-gray like the other two.

Still though, you can't beat the Acer's price.
