overall which is better the dell 30in or the apple 30inch
im talking high resolution photography and crazy gaming both are nice both are expensive i needa professional opinion of pros and cons.. thanks
If you can live with 3 less inches I love my Viewsonic...depends on what you want the native resolution to be but if you're going to pick between the 2 I say go for the Dell, they make some damn good monitors, not that I'm dissing on the Apple cause in person that Apple is freaking awesome. I just done like the way it sits. I'd rather have the 90* flat in front becasue I think the Apple tilts a little bit
The Dell is 1900x1200 which is suitbile for anyone but the thing is most games now, well at least the ones i play dont support widescreen but more will in the future. Either way I say go for the Dell, just because it's cheaper and I dont really like the presence of the Apple (mainly casue it's silver). Thought both still look stellar in person, you can't go wrong with either, picture-wise
Honestly, if I were you, id go with the Dell 24" LCD. It has PLENTY of real estate and the resolution will be sufficient for high-res gaming. The 30" LCDs have not been perfected for gaming quite yet. The 12ms response time with the 24" Dell is pretty good for a large LCD like that. Downside of a massive 30" display is that you'll practically burn your eyes out if you sit close (about 2 feet or a tiny less) to your moniter. Have you BEEN to the apple store and checked out the moniter? Haha. The apple moniter will only work with the dual link video cards. In conclusion, if i had to pick a 30" moniter, it would have to be the dell because of the compatability and the faster response time.

If you need the best equip asap, then yeah, the ati would be sufficient. I dont know exactly how games at that res with all the settings on high would run, to be sure, and because apparently, you have no monetary limit, bust out some crossfire action with the ati. Be warned: i dont know the perf of the new Nvidia board, so i cant say which is going to be better.
