and get the samsung 20 inch 1920x1080..
but it doesnt have hdmi.. too bad.. but at least its the cheapest LED monitor i can find..
around 182 in dollars ( converted ) the others were 230$+


Why do you want LED? It's not any better than a regular CCFL lit LCD screen, and this is coming from a guy who is sitting in front of one right now as we type.

about its energy saving feature..
and the way i can adjust , and use only +1 brightness from the off backlights..

just personal preferences ;p

and if its not to hassle..

can you change your 'gaming resolution' to 1600x900
and check for me how would it go..
I dont play any of those games except I did play the Shogun 2 demo and it ran smooth on both the campaign and battlefield maps with my i3 530 @ 4GHz. The campaign map can only max out 1 cpu core. I confirmed this on another forum.

For Starcraft 2, Sandy Bridge will be better, much better, according to the benchmarks which I have seen.

I always play with Nvidia 3D vision. 3D vision turns on v-sync which limits fps to 60. There are very few games in which I can not maintain 60fps.

In Bad company 2 (single player) and Mafia 2, with 3D vision off, fps is just a little above 60. With 3D vision on, Bad company 2 stays at 60 and Mafia 2 runs at 30-45fps with PhysX on high at 1080p with an OC'd GTX 580. I have read that Bad Company 2 multi-player is more cpu demanding than single player.

You may see a little stuttering sometimes with hyperthreading on, in games which use more than 2 cpu cores. I see some mild stuttering in Heaven benchmark runs at low resolution, when fps rises to around 80+. I believe it's due to the weak hyperthreaded virtual "cores", but I'm not sure. My signature system is only for 3D vision gaming. I dont care about very high fps.

For highly competitive online gaming, I say buy i5-2500k or i7-2600k ... and get a fast internet connection.

I would take a look at your system, as I haven't seen any stuttering with Heaven, or any of game/program as a result of HT being on. At 4Ghz your chip should be handling the load fine.

For BC2 multi, he shouldn't have a problem getting 60fps minimum, and Starcraft 2 will fly.

Think about this. If hyperthreading is so good, then why does the i7-2600k sometimes show lower fps scores than the i5-2500k? I believe the reason is because virtual cores are weak and can hurt overall performance if they are loaded too much.

Starcraft 2
i5 2500k win
i7 2600k loss and it's 0.1GHz faster!
