Default Which Viewsonic???

Which viewsonic would be the better way to go as far as gaming and basic use? And are these monitors any good? And is a 650:1 or 550:1 a better contrast ratio, and is it noticeable?

AND IS THIS MOBO A GOOD AM2 BOARD?
noob question = how easy is it to update BIOS? Because on this board someone said to run the windows xp 64bit i would need to update the BIOS.

The top one for sure, 33% faster, and a better contrast ratio, for like $10 more.


And yes, that board is excellent. They are full of crap, and you don't want to run Windows 64-bit anyway.

No, you want [big number]:1, 600:1 is as low as you wanna go. 800:1 is great, 1000:1 is :drool:

Yeah, Windows XP 64-bit is a waste of time, not any faster, and games run slower on it.
