There are better monitors out there, try and look for one that is 4ms. Also, get a mobo that will support tri-SLI and get 3 8800GTX's. Also, where the f**k are you going to get 4g's to pay for that comp??

Go for 3 8800GTs if you want PCIE 2.0, but the ultras would be better. If it were me, I would spend $2000, and another $2000 over a couple years.

Agreed, don't spend it all at once. 1000$ will get you as far next year as 2000$ will this year.

Also, check out this monitor:
