Also does anyone have opinions on lcd displays, am looking real hard at the Samsung 172x lcd, the problem being is that there are many conflicting reviews on the display, most come from the fact that Samsung sent review screens out with the 25ms response instead of with the 12ms response, and i don't trust thg reviews, they are always slanted in one way or another.

$550 is about the max I can spend on a lcd, so was looking for a great "17, I had looked at a sceptre 19" lcd that was $531, but no hearing of sceptre before am iffy if it is possible to get a good 19" at that price without having some extremem ghosting in games, when I talk games, I am not a fast action fps guy am more into rpg slow paced games. if you have any suggestions it is most welcome.

as I will probably be putting my order in this morning in a few hours and just wanted to make sure I have screwed up something.

Very sweet system, indeed! I'm not really into LCDs because I do a lot of gaming and movie watching, though I'd love to have one for the simple fact that they won't break my back If you're looking for one though, you should check this out:

thx for the link, actually found a site that did a review on the 172x that samsung sent for review with the wrong response, and they later got the one that is in retail, and their opinions is that it is the best lcd for gaming in the market today.

only ghosting was in very fast paced fps games, and that it was barely noticeable, so for my slower action games it should do great.

found out today that my bank has a daily limit on my checkcard, and I had already ordered the monitor and when i went to newegg to order the pc stuff, it got declined because it put it over my daily limit, so the order won't get approved till monday, which puts the system here on wed. or thurs next week if newegg is as good on delivery as everyone says they are.

yea it does feel good to actually get the exact pc I want, and not have to settle on what some manufacturer builds, and knowing every single part that goes into it.

gonna take alot of time putting it all together and routing all the cables carefully, don't want to have the dangle of cables I have in my current case, looks fugly.

over time, will sleeve every cable that is visible and possibly do a window on top with some etching in Elvish script

Really nice system! I just built myself a A64 3000+ system last month. I ended up going with the NEC MultiSync LCD 1760V moniter with an 18ms response rate. I was either going to get this or one of the Samsung LCDs. After looking at the reviews I went with the NEC. One bad thing about the Samsungs is that they produce a lot of moniters with dead pixels. One thing about the NEC is that it is 12 pounds instead of the Samsung which is 7 but I think this is only because the NEC has a heavy base.

from all the reviews I have seen, would say over 95% of folks recieve their lcd with 0 dead pixels, and the rest maybe 1 or 2 dead pixels

and the main reason for the weight difference is that the samsung uses an external converter, the necs converter is built in.
