    I don't need double the size. It is going to run XP and that takes a maximum of 10GB for everything I install to it.

    is that monitor really worth the extra money? would love to be able to compare things like that in person with the right settings and all to actually see the difference and not just go by hearsay.

    It is the same monitor I currently have, just in 1080p and 21.5 instead of 19. NOt sure if it is worth more. Just know acer sucks balls with everything else. Why would the monitors be any different?

    the contrast, color quality, how detailed the settings are, etc., there's a lot of difference from monitor to monitor really if you really care, i for one say if it works i don't care, get the colors close to true and leave it.

    I know all that. But by the time that I would go round and get a good one the budget would be blown to hell. Really want a 17" ish (no bigger than 18") 1080p or 1200p IPS display with 2ms response and a matte screen, but such a thing does not exist outside the laptop industry. Which sucks donkey because the larger displays don't carry anywhere near the display quality (in terms of DPI). Heck a 1080p at 21.5" (generally the smallest size available ) would be lower image quality (still in DPI) than the 14" screen on my D630 (15% less DPI. 120 vs 102).

    But for the time being, I am more concerned with quality than picture.

    okay, final list I hope. Maybe. Unless you see a problem Jonny and Jason. As is paying off my charge card I will have $90 extra, so I hope this is all good.

    Laptop stuffs

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/30-Fog-Whit...t=US_Floppy_Zip_Jaz_Disks&hash=item2322a2a9f2 (went down from 100, as I have quite a few boxes full coming down with grandad on the 12th)
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Floppy...loppy_Zip_Jaz_Drives&hash=item20c769c50b#shId (cause the above are no good without it)

    Desktop:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260056 (I don't understand the GTG thing, but I guess it is good).

    Monitor isn't bad. All laptop part are good. GTG mean Gray to Gray. It is really good for picture color. It take only 2 ms to change color via gray to color.

    They're same specs except for type of LCD. It depend on what you choose. Such as cheap monitor, TN LCD or newest monitor. Can't hurt to buying old monitor if you choose.

    In my experience I like TFT since it is easy to view movie and picture, but TN is fastest response time.

    I am not sure which I will get. I like them both, but the new one is cheaper, meaning that is an advantage. I am not sure yet what I will get as a monitor. Might just hold off. Not really sure.

    which one was the TFT monitor?

    Or, better yet since you seem to know a lot about them, what would you get for $200 or less for 1080p at newegg?

    Okay. Not much changed really. Just the monitor, which we are sorting right now.

    ok, but why? Just because it cost $200? and it is bigger. :( meaning worse picture quality.

    The ASUS has a faster response time, it will be better for gaming. 1920x1080 is what I use on a 24" and it's a good resolution.

    How does the response time really matter that much? 5ms is far faster than people can see anyway. My monitor is 5ms I assume and I have never had issues gaming on it (that were not directly caused by IGP graphics).
