As you can see, it's been a long wait, and still not there yet! -.-"

I'm not sure what size, but it's going to be for gaming mostly so I don't think a big monitor is good so I am going to go for a monitor that's about 23 inch, but the thing is it's so expensive! And $600 is too much for a monitor if you ask me haha, especially if it costs more then a highend graphics card.
I'm not looking for a 3D monitor either haha.
Also I never ever ever used a 120hz monitor and people are telling me it's amazing.... so that's why I want it smile.gif
I might get a speaker, but I don't think I'd need to because I have headphones already. (Astro A40s) that I used to use for my xbox, now I don't play much at all (haven't in 3 months)
Ahh so much money @_@

To be honest I don't really know, but from what I understand the 4 has more stuff; more slots, more ports, more plugs, but besides the extra stuff the boards are the same. I'm sure someone with better tech knowledge would be able to answer it better ;_;

I've heard mixed reviews from gamers about bigger monitors. I would say go with the size you like. plus 23 inch, i think, is the only true 120hz monitors. Anything bigger and it's either 3D, fake 102hz, or costs 2 arms and 1 leg. As long as my zerglings look cute, I'm happy.

Its the same price point as the SB and its got a performance increase along with Sata 3 and PCIE 3 support.
Just curious

Ah yeah, that's a question. :/ mostly I'm impatient and lazy. I know the logical thing would be to wait. But I want my computer NOW. I'm also a girl, there's no talking sense into me. I only make sandwiches, no hate.
