    30" LCDs ?

    Is there any decent ones for PC gaming I can get here in Aus? Searched for past 2 days and found significant problems with all of them. Is there any low input lag / non wide-gamut 30 inch LCD's around? What do you guys with killer rigs use?? thanks

    New Gaming Build

    1) Budget somewhere around 3000 at most. But as I said just looking for a rock solid performer for 1920x1200 in current/future games. I'm happy to spend less. 2) Yea. 3) Will it be a big performance booster and be compatible with most games in future? if so then yes. I'd rather pay a bit more to have option there. Thanks for all the replies :)
  5. Hi all, Looking to build a new computer for mainly gaming at 1920x1200 but also to double as a HTPC. So far: Intel Q9550 - $500 Zalman CPU Cooler CNPS9500AT - $59 Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P - $250 4870X2 vid card - $800 Western Digital WD10EADS - $189 Creative SB0820-XFI-XAUD - $75 Antec SKELETON - $260 Antec TPQ-850 - $280 Microsoft Vista Home 64-bit - $180 I already have a good set of speakers to hook up. Undecided on whether I want 4gb or 8gb of RAM and also need a good blu-ray/TV card recommendation. Wouldn't mind downgrading and spending a little less as long as performance didn't suffer TOO much. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Ta.
