That's a HUGE monitor! LOL

lol, It was one of them can't pass up deals. It was a open box sale from Amazon. I got it for 1/4 the retail price.

Of course then I had to drop some major cash for the 9800 GX2 to power it full settings/max resolution on games.

Needless to say, gamming is pretty awsome!

The 22" on it's side is perfect to browse the web on. I hardly ever have to scroll down. lol

The monitor was only 350 including shipping. It normaly retailed for 1200. So even getting the 9800 GX2, I still came out cheaper then if I would have just bought the Monitor at retail price.

So since I "decided" that a motherboard upgrade can wait a little while longer (way to go eVGA, I got a DoA MoBo), I decided to put that money towards increasing the storage space I've got... Therefore, instead of a new motherboard I got two new hard drives and a RAID controller. I'll post pictures tomorrow, but basically it's a RAID 1 configuration of two Western Digital 1TB Caviar Black's!

Ah you should be fine, the store I bought it from had no issues with me returning it DoA. When I first bought all the parts for this original build, my first Striker Extreme was DoA from them as well. I'm sure I just got a lemon unit, because I haven't heard a lot about DoA 780i SLI FTW's.
