    Beastly! Seems like you've got some money, why not go RAID with a pair of drives?

    Samsung 245BW has better response time than the Dell. bad choice for a Fan Thermaltake always exhadurates there specs go for a Yate Loon or a Scythe S-Flex.

    o thanks for the notice!
    but about the screen.. the DELL's Viewing Angle is wider, samsung has TN panel which is not good for text reading, the brightness is lower then dell's and samsung doesnt has HDMI output.
    the DELL is the best. specialy with the new REV which fixes some Input Lag problems and stuff..

    about the fans..
    I also thought about the NOCTUA NF-P12.. but i want something with leds =]
    got any recommendation ?

    text is fine on TN Panels, I am supposed to wear glasses but to me this is a pro gaming build and response time to me is more important. Yate Loon makes some LED but you shouldn't sacrifice performance over aesthetics.

    Ditch the X48 and go with P45, unless you have crossfire on the brain.

    I have that same board and I love it! OC friendly (well, I haven't pushed the limits yet) and if you have crossfire in mind from a review I saw here: http://www.legionhardware.com/document.php?id=761 the X48 blows all the other in CF performance!

    Top notch PC, except, 600 bucks for a monitor...Whoa...

    cutie
    response time and inut lag are not the same thing, response time depends about the time that the LCD crystals turn to the needed angle to show the needed color.. u c?.. this time is counted from the moment the color changes.. some companies benchmarking the response time from the color gray to white and to gray again this is where G2G comes from..

    input lag is the time that the picture refreshes and how long the colors changes, which speed the crystals turn.. its almost the same but its not

    i agree with you and many others that the DELL 2408WFP has input lag problem but my version of the monitor is the new one, the new revision 1.0 so it is the version which it fixed.. so i wont have to suffer from this =]

    thanks anyway =]

    hehe.. Yeah mate i know.. thats the reason ive chose it =]

    and if y'all haven't noticed.. im taking 2X HD4870 which mean CrossFire.. ;)

    I don't think this has anything to do with what you just said, it's time between video card and display. but the response time is still slower than the Samsung, so what it doesn't have a HDMI port, get an adaptor they are $10-20 usd. you think this justifies $600?

    Hmmm... well I don't know how bad the Input Lag is..

    why you are so sure this is so noticeable and interrupting the gaming..

    i'm not. but check the demonstration how input lag can effect response time. the Samsung has better numbers and it's cheaper even has portrait mode (mod) save some money for a RAID I realize you are probably ordering from your uncle's catalog but you could drop the Dell and Seagate for a Samsung and Western Digital Velociraptor.

    PS, there are 2 versions of the Samsung Syncmaster 245.

    "B" version comes with a Matte Coating and is sold in Canada, Australia and UK. Matte is non-reflective and hides imperfections like dirt, smudges and streaks.
    "BW" version comes with a Glossy Coating and is sold in America. Glossy makes colors a little more vibrant and shades like black more intense but reveals imperfections.

    if your a gamer Matte hands down.

    this prices are not from the catalog.. the monitor is from DELL's site thats why the price is high.
    its not the real price i will pay.. im sure it will be cheaper and i got 40% reduction..
    besides im getting the new revision of this monitor so there wont be the Input Lag issue at all, its solved like some other problems.

    for what the raids are used? whats the difference between standard HD like the Seagate Barracuda 500 GB?
