i wish those are a bit out of my price range unless you can find me something $200 or less that is >22 inches

it was about 200 for the rest of the project which was pretty much just sleeving and a couple fabricated parts. (150+motm winnings)
Wait, you just raced a Charger? 1/4 mile?

You possibly could find one if you bought used, but I remember seeing a 23" Dell IPS (U2311) for about £250 (new), which is like $350

I'd love a new monitor, but mine is fine and I'd far rather spend money on something like a new graphics card.

I'm sure you've already said, but what are the temps like on your 470s?

Probably different when you've got 2 cards but just to get an idea

yep. a few years ago before my dad got sick and we started the airplane project we were big into drag racing. we knew a guy with a ton of money and a 71 charger. after a year or so of asking and learning he let me drive it twice. that car was FAST. i could never work up the nerv to keep my foot in it the whole 1/4... (that's why the trap speeds are low for the time normally guys running low 11s are trapping at 120+)

dad and i had a 1990 Camaro that never ran quite right...

i want an IPS ALLOT but they are too expensive for me.. i have had 2 for YEARS and it feels weird not having 2 (or even 3) so when the little crappy one i have dies for good i want a new BIG one to take the place of my Dell monitor and use that for the second.

and i really dont need another card XD

when playing Metro 2033 at about 800/1600 at 1.100(ish) volts they never go above 75*c at a reasonable enough fan speed like 55 to 65%. if i turn the fans up to jet engine status they dont go above 60* but they are LOUD at 100% however one of them is always about 5* hotter than the other

That's not too bad actually. I really like quiet fans though, so I probably couldn't run them at above 60C.

And I wasn't saying you needed a new card

I was saying that I'd love a new monitor but a graphics card is more important for my PC ;D

I think I'd be too scared to try drag racing

I have never driven a fast car, unless you can count my moms 32v Northstar V8 Cadillac. But I have ridin in two very fast cars before, one was a 2006 Corvette Z06, and a 2004 Ford SVT Cobra @465WHP. Both cars were a blast to just ride in.

Just for reference. We did this in the middle of town in a 45mhp zone, all the way through 1st and 2nd gear at full throttle. Power shifting included.

no its really not... even on the crappy reference coolers all that junk about Fermi being hot is a bunch of crap... sure the 480s are warmer than most cards out their but they are far from fire starters... my 470s are cooler than some of my friends 5770s

i know

its intimidating the first few times in a car your not used to.... bury the throttle and dump the clutch and watch the speed and the tach climb.... at about 130 that wall looks REALLY hard and the half mile run out looks REALLY short... i never could work up the nerve to get much better than a solid 11 high 10. though i haven't raced in like 5 years so if i were to get some practice and a good car who knows now

and in other news.

i found that one. i need to do more research but it looks pretty good as well

Oh and the only thing I can compare that corvette to is the top thrill dragster at cedar point, which does 0-120mph in about 4 seconds flat.

I have the Acer H233H that I picked up last year from Best Buy during the Christmas sales. From what I can tell by the specs the main difference is mine has a pair of small speakers that the S231HLbid doesn't and the H233H has a slightly better brightness spec. I like it a lot for what I do with it. One of the nice features is I can connect three different sources to it and switch from one to another from one of the front panel switches.

If your 19" is flat panel and the problem is it is getting dim there is a good chance that one or more of the capacitors are failing. I had that happen to a couple of mine this year. Took about an hour to take one apart, replace the faulty caps, the re-assemble it. The 5 caps cost less than $10 from Rad Shack. They are working better than they did when I bought them.

Well, I'm not exactly a monitor guru but it looks nice

It's also somewhat Alienware-esque

thanks for all the info.

but im pretty sure its more than just a couple caps that are going bad as when it works its still pretty good. but (with a couple different cables) it dosen't always detect signal but if i turn it off and back on it has about a 50% chance of finding it again.

and i want a new BIGGER monitor any way that can actually use the big resolutions that my GPUs can give me but my crappy monitors cant

Wow Striker, the plane looks stunning! A friend of mine is studying for her private pilots license and has promised to take me up once she gets it. I'm excited purely at the opportunity for aerial photography But I am also very jealous of anyone who can fly, or gets the opportunity to be flown in a small plane whenever they like
