I looked real hard at that one too. Then decided to stick with a 24 incher for half the monies.

these enermax clusters look amazing and i think they are some of the best deal , for about 20 bucks you get fully sleeved white cable , button to turn led on off, detachable blade for cleaning and the aluminium frame look great, ultra quiet , but they don't move an awfull lot of air.

The more dense pixel pitch of a 24 inch screen at 1080 will look much more crisp sitting right in front of you, compared to a 27 incher with the same rez.

A great monitor for the price:

Yes, 27" is more suited for 1440 resolution.

However, I would disagree that one should stay away from 1080p 27" screens- at least not as a rule of thumb. Depends on personal preference- many people put more of a premium on screen real estate than resolution. I have a 24" IPS screen at work and was looking for a cheap 27" monitor for home use. I found the reduction in screen real estate from 27" to 24" more intolerable than the reduction in image fidelity from an IPS display to a more stretched TN screen when switching b/w displays.

Mind you, I would agree that one should not pay even close to the retail prices for a 27" 1080p screen (even with all the bells and whistles). But if one can find a deal on a place like eBay, go for it.

I bought my ve276q on eBay for ~$150.

I thought resolution = screen real estate? A 27 inch 1080 panel has the exact number of pixels that a 24 inch does, so you're not gaining any usable space, just spreading the pixels apart.
But yeah, you're right, it's all about personal preference. I was just saying a 24 inch 1080 is going to look nicer/crisper compared to a 27 when sitting the same distance away. Save a few bucks, and look better? Why not? biggrin.gif

Yeah- I follow you- I'm referring to the size of the screen you stare at. Obviously you are right regarding the lack of a difference in usable real estate.

Has anyone tried a dual 80mm rad in the basement of the XB. I am looking for a little more cooling for folding and the Black Ice M160 looks to be a good option.

Thoughts, Ideas?

Just ordered an EVGA GTX670 FTW Signature 2 to finish off my rig as it seems the next generation of cards probably won't show this year. Going to retire my 570 into my old Q6600/Cosmos 1000 rig as a back up. Can't wait.
