help me become cheaper
 
if you look at my sig, im planning a really awesome rig . . .

the only thing is is that its a few $ over my budget, so does anyone know what i can do to keep the same performance, yet pay a little less?

edit - i want an lcd, not a crt

How much do you want to shave off?

koldapu 08-10-2004 05:23 PM

i dont care for a couple of dollars . . . but maybe a total of at least $50?

You could shave off 300 bucks by going from a 20.1" to a 19", which would be quite a bit.

EDIT: 19" is still freaking huge and enough to make everyone jealous :)

koldapu 08-10-2004 05:24 PM

are there any 19" with 1600x1200? (uxga)

koldapu 08-10-2004 05:26 PM

also, are there any 19" with 12/16 ms response time?

PizzatheHut06 08-10-2004 05:39 PM

Hmmmm...I don't know. Also, there's no motherboard in your sig. Which one are you getting?

koldapu 08-10-2004 05:55 PM

The WD Raptor is pretty expensive, running around 160 bucks. Instead of a Raptor and an SATA you could just get 2 SATA's, unless you really want that speed.
