Dell, HP or what?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been pondering on what to do with a very large sum I got through Adsense, I figured I'd purchase two 30" IPS displays, but I'm really not sure what to get. Last year I wanted to get a Dell U something or another that a large number of members here covered in review threads very well. Is there any IPS with a 4-5 ms respond time, rich coloring and preferably under $1,600 a pop? Would an ancient 8800 gtx be able to handle two massive monitors?

I would spend $500 and get a decent graphics card, I think a 8800 gtx will be struggling. If you're not looking to game I'd say a 660 would fit the bill perfectly, or if you do game a 680 GTX or 7970 either or really.

8800 GTX? You kidding me? It'll get destroyed by your monitor setup. A single 30 inch is more than enough to overwhelm your GPU, let alone TWO of these guys. Get the 30 inch Catleap.
