My System Specs


Darkstar, you seem to be forgetting that we are paying $200 for these monitors, not $500. Add to that the IPS panel can display 16 bit native along with other non TN panels. This is the reason we are happy to be getting new non TN economy panels in the market. My current Dell 2407-HC is astonishing at the color range and clarity. If I had actually believed 1/2 the bogus reviews on it I never would have bought it and I have never been happier. THe higher resolutions are the only way to play and considering my $100 (new) HD 4830 can play pretty much any title @ 1920X1200. I don't understand why you actually need to spend $300+ on a video card except for some nice e-peen. Not trying to start an argument over this, but most of your arguments are really not valid.

I concede that a GOOD CRT can outperform a LCD panel, but you cannot condemn current models for even 1/2 the reasons you are using.
NEW (to me) Intel DQ67SW/I7 2600/12GB DDR3/ASUS CUII R9 290X 4GB/128GB SSD+750GB HDD/ASUS Xonar D1

Asusmobo/E8500/4GB DDR/Gigabyte HD 5830/Samsung 759GB/X-FI Xtreme Music

HTPC: Dell 960 SFF Q9550/8GB DDR2/R7 250 2GB/128GB SSD/2TB HDD
