Windows 7: Optimal monitor height? Computer remote? Battery solution?

21 Aug 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home 64

Update- All is fine with the setup except the monitor. Believe it or not, I actually plan to return my Dell 24" u2412 for a 23" u2312 even though with paying return shipping, the deal, etc., it even comes out to the same price! The issues are I lean in to look at my screen to see the text and I'm not happy with the height issue still (can't adjust desk/chair anymore/swivel arm) so I'm thinking the 1" lower height and the 1080 resolution (vs 1200 on the 24") will be more comfortable. I realize I lose 1" of screen space and a little more with the resolution and since I'm usually on the internet/office 1200 should actually be better. Anyone with advice in regards to what I am about to do?

Half height PCI mounting bracket BUT full height slot.
Background: I have an Acer Aspire X1800 in a ridiculously small case. Everything gets way too hot and no room for cooling. Plus according to eXtreme Power supply calculator the supplied 220W PSU is well below recommended minimum (and making noises!). So I've nearly finished moving the hardware...
