BenQ XL2420T 24 inch Widescreen LED Multimedia Mon&hellip by BenQ
4.0 out of 5 stars Best in its class!, 30 July 2012
First off, this is a great monitor, I have owned it for about 4 months now. It is very well built and looks and feel solid. The choice of ports is great and it comes with two usb ports - acting as a hub. The 120hz rate is the selling point of this monitor, and is really worth having for desktop use alone. Games do benefit from the faster refresh, with my preferred frame rates form 50fps MIN to 85fps MAX, anything over 85fps is not worth having at the expense of either graphics and/or fan noise. I run a gaming machine with a gtx 680, and can run most games at 80-120fps.

Now the reason for 4 stars is that is a TN panel monitor. What that means is that the picture quality, while… Read more
Asus nVIDIA 3D GeForce GTX 560 Direct CU Graphics &hellip by ASUS
I purchased this card from another retailer, for 130. I would happily buy it at the Amazon price if it had been offered at the time. This card is about 70% stronger than the 550ti and about 85% as strong as a 560ti (according to nVidia). This means that the choice of which card to buy for around 100-200 isnt that easy. Well I planned to buy a 560ti at 170, but then I saw the deal for 130. I feel I made the right decision. This game runs Alice MR at a constant 60fps (Once the 30fps cap on the game has been tweaked) with everything on max, only dipping to 30fps when alot of on screen PHYSX is going on. It looks fantastic. I run dirt 2 at 80fps ultra, and NFS the run on ultra as well at… Read more
Gigabyte SKT-1155 Z68XP-UD3 Motherboard (Rev 1.0) by Gigabyte

This is the best value Mobo in my opinion. It has SLI/crossfire support, and very good read/write data speeds. I run this with an i5 2500k and it is very fast and has a basic overclocking facility for dummies up to 4.5ghz I believe. plenty of usb headers and an usb 3.0 header as well. Perfect for what I need. Note SLI bridge is included but not a Xfire bridge. Comes with sata cables.
