Thanks for the info. I am not sure what I am going to do. Been looking at a couple of 25" HP LCD that are compliant for 250 each, a hundred dollars off each one. Hey it is only money. I like the first computer on your list. I have also been looking into the GTX 450s that you are using. How are they?
I build a machine a year ago just before the I7 systems came out. Always a day late. I went with a pair of GTX 260s at the time. Also Thermaltake Xaser V1 case, Intel core 2 Quad Q9550,Nvidia nforce 790I Ultra SLI ATX mobo, Patriot DDR3 2000 ram 4GB, and a pair of VelociRaptor 10,000 rpm 300GB HDs in raid 0. Expensive then, it would be a lot cheaper now. But it should last awhile.
