Default Re: Computer Upgrade or Two new monitors

how about do something like this

get one of the them 22" screens then buy

http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=30027
http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=27405

all of them come to roughly the same as one of them monitors so you can have a 15" tft and a 22" tft and then a pretty decent rig as well and that mobo is AM2+ so you could update to a phenom X4 in the future if your finances allow for it

that assumes your current psu and hdd are compatible but even if not you could sell your current mobo cpu ram hdd etc for a bit and then get a new HDD and PSU

I could, yeah - But i fancy a change to Intel...

And 4GB ram would be nice (I'd run vista 64).

Thanks Dude

well then get this cpu
http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=29175
and a simillarly priced s775 mobo the same ram and gpu and its an intel build , only thing is i think for the price the AMD processor is better and tbh you will notice the difference between your current rig and any dual core rig straight away
and ram isnt that expensive is it i could have picked out cheaper ram for you

upgrade the comp- with such large monitors- even me- a dual screen addict- with a 19" lcd, no longer feels a need for dual montors as much as I did.

Get the system first, then upgrade the monitors later. That's what I did, though I knew I was going to have the money for 3 new LCDs within 2 months, and I got it in a month. You will probably have to wait longer for the LCDs. If you want something better than what you got still, you can go find 2 CRT monitors that are the same size and maybe model. See if you can get them for free, and if not, they probably will go for cheap. A lot of people are going LCD, and just throw away their decent CRTs. I've gotten quite a few nice CRT monitors for free.

I will follow jesus on this one. I have faith in him, And i'm glad I can share my faith with many other people.

But seriously, Thanks for that. I will try and get another CRT for cheap... Upgrade, then start saving for more monitors.

Three 22" Screens would be godlike!

Oh wait... Yeah.
haha
