    i see brand (good one)
    size (good enough for your gfx altought it's wide)
    rating on newegg
    resolution (not bad)
    response time (4ms - great)
    dvi connector (better than the analogic one)

    that's about it, do you like wide monitors?

    the difference between wides and normal ones is only size and "consenquentially" resolution, some games may look bad when wided :ohwell:
    ".." - pretrty sure is spelled wrong but i don't wan't to got to the dictionary

    Hi,
    Ceramic paste is non conductive (doesnt conduct electricity) and from my own experience tends to be a little bit cooler the AS5 and because its non conductive it can be used safely on memory chips and it doesnt matter if your messy and spill some on resistors and such. As for monitors i have a 19" 4ms and a 27" 12ms LCD TV (both samsung and both amazing) i cant tell the difference in blur between them.

    Hope that helps.

    well on the paste its just better to get the ceramic-based? is its better for Vid Cards and CPU's cuz i was going to get the 9.99 one on newegg and the AS5 15.99 but if i can save 15.99 i'll get the ceramic-based only

    and on your screen is yours the the Wide or Reg. screen which do you think would be better for games
