OMG SB.

That case full of stuff looks like the 'Arm & Launch' box for a missile intercept system.

Do the house lights dim when you fire it up? ;D

Lots of depressed looking photos - surely you smiled at your new toys  :D

That case is E N O R M O U S ---- you'll never be homeless!
Two months later...and I think I'm enjoying it now.  That first month was exhausting.  I'm still not "settled" with it yet.  I'm still ironing everything out.
I still haven't cleaned my house yet.  I gave away a lot of junk in my place to a couple of garage sales my friends were having.  If you read my article on my website, i talk about how I really hate this whole process.  People think I like it because I'm a computer geek, but i don't.  I like HAVING an awesome computer...doesn't mean I like building one.

Yeah!  I love that case.  It's huge and quiet and has plenty of room for everything.  I'm a pretty tall guy, 6'3", and I was shocked at the size of the case.  Now I know the meaning of a full-size tower.  I think I always thought my mid-towers were considered full, but I was very wrong.

I'm very happy with them!!  Mouser was exactly right about the benefits of having two monitors, it makes everything better.
My only very minor complaints are that the monitors are not height adjustable.  But the height works in my case.  Also, occasionally, when the two monitors wake up from a sleep mode, sometimes the primary one won't turn back on until you turn it off and then back on.  This happens one time out of 20 or so.  But I think it's an issue with the ATi card than the monitors.

I have one of the BenQ monitors too (and am pleased you are happy since I recommended them). I love mine - it is brilliantly clear and bright.

And great value for money (about 1/3 the price of a 27" Samsung 275T that I bought a few days ago).

Oh yeah, thanks Carol!!

cranio, the monitors were a great bargain.  they were literally half the price of comparable 24" monitors from Dell and other brands.  So i got two for the price of one. And I doubt I can tell the difference in quality much.
