    Very nice man, how much did that set you back? I wouldn't mind a large widescreen LCD screen.

    It was $1657 + $63 for Fedex 2day shipping. I got it from Tech For Less which was out of state for me, so I would not have to pay tax. :) I am.... well, buzzed (Woooo!:)), and very happy with this monitor. For gaming it's response time is excellent, and for work, I can fill my desktop with SSH sessions, when I switch over to Linux. It plays well with my Belkin KVM switch in VGA mode. I have not even tried the DVI yet, due to the fact that I do switch to two other computers with it. I find it hard to believe that anything will improve beyond this already amazingly crisp, vibrant display. Plus, DVI KVM switches are about $800 bones. Wow.... I give this monitor a major thumbs up! Here's the link to the manufacturer's spec page. Peace....

    EDIT:: Hey, that was my 100th post. Cool! :D :D :D

    :cheers:

    Double EDIT:: I know it was a LOT of ca$h, but it's so worth it to me. I am such a slave to the digital prophet!! ;)

    What is that mixer on the right hand side of the monitor? Presuming it is actually a mixer...

    Yup! A Numark EM-460. I DJ a little on the side, for fun mostly. I use Visiosonic PCDJ for the players and use a Soundblaster Live in 4 channel mode for audio out. Player A gets the front speakers, and player B gets the rears. PCDJ has specific settings for the SB Live when using an external mixer, so it was very easy to make it work. Plus, it's great for gaming when I wanna mix in music from my other PC. Cheers!

    UGGG!! When I run any Direct3D app using the DVI port I get a lot of visual distortions. OpenGL is fine, 2D is fine, and if I switch back to VGA everything works fine. I posted something in the Video Card forum about this, but wanted to put something here also. Anyone have any ideas??
