I am going to go with the dell 27" monitor. Thanks for the help on this point. This leaves some free money for my system so I curious what about going to LGA 2011 and a 3930K?
Do you plan to do HD steaming of PC games? If so then LGA 2011 and a 3930k would be a decent consideration as the software based steaming platforms tend to use H.264 and will make use of all the cores/threads it can get. Otherwise LGA 2011 sounds like overkill to me, but 2011 does have a better upgrade future then 1155 as IB-E is coming out for 2011 next year I think. Also since its a 6 core it does have more future potential then a quad core. Theres no shame in spending the extra for 2011 as long as long as you keep in mind its not the best value for a gaming oriented rig.
