Hmm, okay. My problem is that I don't know much about those things. If I recall correctly, my G27 came with a power brick as well, so I'll compare the values on the sticker and see if they match. Last thing I want to do after shelling out some cash is break my newest toy xD
And it's arrived already, can't wait to get home. Got dispatched on Wednesday, got it today. I think if I had ordered just slightly earlier and it got sent out on Tuesday I'd have gotten it last Friday. Still not as fast as all of you in the US, but can't say it's a bad service at all, quite the opposite. I just hope when I get home and try it out, that it's all working properly!
I do wonder if I'll notice much of a change, since I'm already coming from a 26'' 1200p screen (kinda wish I had a crappy screen so I could notice the difference even more xP). Though as far as I can see, the colors on the Crossover will be vastly superior. My current monitor (a Samsung T260) really pisses me off with the viewing angle. From the way I sit and the place where the monitor stays, I always lose some color either on the top or the bottom. Since I always prefer eye candy to fps, that always annoys me! Might get another 7970 soon so that I can take full advantage of the new resolution!
Also, I don't know for sure, but since my mother already accepted and signed for the package back home, I don't believe that I have to pay any customs, so yay for that!
Also, if I may just ask, any 100x100 vesa mount will do just fine for the monitor? I've yet to try it, but if it is too close to me, I think I will put it on the wall behind my desk. But I do imagine that it will be, as sometimes my current screen already seems to be too close. I was looking at a mount such as this (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Auna-LCD-503A-Mount-Inculdes-Cable/dp/B007PBNDDI/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2OSW0H0976NEX&coliid=IZ5KMF05RESAC
) because it's not that expensive and seems sturdy. I just need to check if I can turn it around to make the monitor Portrait.
I want to go home! ^^
