yes it was a tad expensive but for the picture quality, full 120hz and 3d that dont give me a whacking headache and the monitor does the 3d conversion so i cannot complain + its a 27" and see it lasting me atleast 5 years.

the thing even converts swtor into 3d perfectly an i can tell ye, space is beep beep beep amazing in 3d.

i just bought new PC parts as I was getitng tired of lag in WZ and Fleet.

Intel i5-2500 Sandybridge 3.3ghz quad core
Asus p8h6i MB
8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
Rosewill 600W PS

all that for only $450!!

I replaced the parts in my current PC which included a PNY GT430 GPU. Almost bought an EVGA GT590 but wanted to check performance before dropping another $450

It should say on it somewhere but if it's 4 years old 1080p at the highest is it a TV or a PC monitor?

I'm glad you wasted your $ on that very low quality 600WATT PSU on a system that draws 200 WATTS
