I can't tell.
My wife might see the thread (over my shoulder) and I'll get in trouble.

I really dread to think. I currently have two pcs, the recent one cost twice as much as the previous one and I bet I really couldn't tell much difference in ordinary use.
In 5 years I've had 5 keyboards and several mice, a couple of heat sink fans etc
It's an obsession.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

My current build wasn't too bad at all.
$1192 for my box, cpu, mobo, case, power supply, mechanical hard drive, OS, DVD Buner

$289 for the Intel X25-M Gen 2 SSD drive that I added to it

$165 for the Acer monitor that I am currently using

$50 for my mechanical keyboard
$35 for my Logitech G9 laser mouse

So, $1,731 give or take.

I am looking to replace my monitor with a 24" Dell U2410 ($539) and am looking at the Sapphire Radeon 5850 video card (~$290). But both of those are going to have to wait a while.

Have a look at the 24" HP too. They are really nice also - and a bit cheaper.

Which HP monitor in particular?? I'm really looking for an IPS based flat panel (not another TN panel) and I'd like to get one which rotates, swivels, etc.

I was actually thinking of this one (which is 25" now). Check the reviews. But it does not rotate/swivel.

Ditto.

The HP LP2475w and the U2410 use essentially the same H-IPS panel (HP-8bit, Dell newer revision 12-bit)

Both are good, to a large degree the same, so nab whichever is cheaper.

(Make sure the Dell is at least a A01 revision. Also, Dell's quality is hit and miss. When it's a good one, it's very good - when it's dodgy - they can be shockers)
