Don't forget that the builds suggest using Newegg for your purchases. Try and find the deals that offer free shipping. If not then the fees can add up very fast on each individual item. Some smaller items can cost more to ship than the product itself. If possible see what you can find locally and check the have it now price vs. the Newegg/shipping cost and waiting several days for shipment, and UPS doesn't deliver on the weekends so order accordingly in the beginning of the week or your boxes may just sit in your local annex all weekend doing you no good.

I'll do my best to place my order on a Sunday/Monday. Luckily I work for a Freight forwarding company so I can get it delivered there instead of risk it being delivered to my house with no one there.
Any good deals coming up for labor day that you guys know of?

A coworker of mine gave me the idea of giving this baby 2 nice sized monitors. He also suggested purchasing from Tigerdirect over Newegg. What do you guys think? For the moment I thought about getting the two monitors and holding off on the theater system branch of the beast. I'll just stick with the original idea of having a gaming pc which still being able to upgrade it later. Would I be able to play while I surf the web with this thing? How does this work?

You might consider a scenario, where the machine is hooked both to a monitor, and a big screen TV, setup on a desk where you want in the corner of the living room, such that you can play games, browse the web, etc, on the monitor, but be able to use it as a media PC at the same time, (play movies blue rays, etc), by simply dragging play windows over to the television and expanding them.

Personally, I'm a huge fan of dual monitor setups for productivity. I run linux, and use it to run a lot of simulation and productivity related apps (both windows apps under wine and linux apps). Some games may allow for a practical dual monitor situation where you could be playing on one monitor and using the other to browse (probably MMORPG's would have a way to play that would allow this to work well enough, which might be nice for crafting and other tedious operations while researching toon building). On the other hand, the type of games that are more "in your face" will typically either be best played on 1 monitor or 3.

Tiger vs Newegg: Can't comment tiger specifically. I've always done business with the egg and always seemed to be able to use combo specials and promo codes or discounted items and time their deals to get as good a price (or close enough) from them to compete with the other major online sources of hardware. I personally really only suggest builds from newegg because I can navigate their site and find good deals faster than through other retailers (I'm just used to their interface, so have a routine).

Give us a sort of summery of the current position you find yourself in budget wise, and in terms of how you want to approach the monitor situation, and I'm sure we can get things moving here again.

Regards,
Eric

I personally prefer 2 monitors over 1. It makes things a lot easier if you multitask a lot. For example you could work on a photoshop task while watching a tutorial for it.

You can't really game on 2 monitors though, so keep that in mind. For productivity and desktop space, yes 2 monitors is amazing. If you want to play games across more than one monitor (Eyefinity or Surround), you'll want 3, not 2.

In the tiger vs newegg, my experience has been that tiger has been a little cheaper, but their shipping took much longer than newegg. But seeing as you are in Florida shipping time from tiger might not be too bad for you.
