Default Re: Dual Monitors Question!

oh yea, quick question..im intrested in buying this alienware case called Alien Warrior, its listed at 40, is this a rip off or just right?

and i dont know if it will fit my mobo, it says it fits :

Support Motherboard Type: ATX, Micro ATX (Fit in all types of board up to 244mm )

i have a dell optiplex gx260, will this work? for like the screws in the case to screw the mobo down, if its the slots in the back, thats n/p because i can just break those off

When gaming I turn my 2nd monitor off. It annoys me if I got off screen. Probally a simple 7600gt would do you fine. Should handle most games on medium settings and shouldn't cost more than $100usd.
