Jeez, for a technology that has been all the rage for the past few years, it SURE has a lot of issues compared to a CRT. I'm not impressed at all.

    Except when I see a HD signal on a HD TV
    ive seen plenty of competitive CSS players playing on CRt's with 75hz, even a couple of years ago. tbh i think it wont make a difference over 60 fps. in terms of smoothness ive played on both 60 and 120 and it will make little or no difference. it only really comes into play if you are playing 3d games really

    I know I've tried my current screen at 85Hz and saw no difference from it on 60Hz..... I dropped it back to 60Hz as I figured it'd be easier on the screen.

    I think a Dell or NEC e-IPS would be your best bet for image quality, gaming and fairly inexpensive.....

    Its a new version of IPS......Dell , NEC, Asus have models out. A few other brands too.

    They are about 95% as color accurate as an IPS, but have better abilities for gaming (less latency, input lag).....

    Basically they game like a TN monitor type but look a lot better (almost as good as S-IPS or P-IPS types....

    Yes, got a Yamakasi Catleap Q270 SE for $320 Australian. I'm hoping its defect free although at this price, even if it has a dead pixel I can't really complain. It's in the same price range as TN screens here in Australia.

    I'm hoping that the image quality of these screens match those of Apple screens as others have stated. They are definitely beautiful displays. Funny thing is that I already had a 27" TN screen that I'd only purchased 2 weeks ago for $299. Sold it to a mate for $150 to get rid of it quickly so I could buy the Catleap.

    Currently showing as here in Brisbane so it's shipping is impressively fast considering I only purchased it last Thursday afternoon

    I think I can hijack my own thread, being the OP.

    So I heard from Corsair after my memory failed, I HAD 1 gig of XMS Platinum. That isn't made any more, so they are sending me 2 gigs of XMS Platinum. I'm psyched. I hope it all works and holds me over till my new build.

    Ok, got the monitor set up. I have to say this thing is absolutely AMAZING. Picture quality is absolutely gorgeous and I'd have to say the base is actually better than that found on most screens in its price range. Playing Battlefield 3 is almost like playing a whole new game. It gives the game far more depth and effects look much more impressive than before. I'd have to say this purchase is one of the best I've ever made, on par with my Silverstone TJ04-W

    My only gripe is a single stuck/dead pixel in the top right hand corner of my screen however it is actually barely noticeable. I intend on running JScreenFix for a few hours whenever I can be bothered getting around to it to see if this comes good.

    Yah, I scored 2 new sticks. I sent them 2 sticks of 512, THEY are sending me 2 sticks of 1gig! So total of 2 gigs. It will be enough to keep my old computer going.

    Hmm.. well I think I'm going to wait on the monitor. I'm hoping by the time I start ordering parts and putting the new rig together, LG will start selling the screens here. They were dropped in May out in the Far East, as you now have one.

    I'm probably going to wait till they arrive in the USA that way I can get one locally, I'm too worried about dead pixels. Plus, I'd like to see one in person too.

    On another note, I read about people making deals with Dell, getting their 30incher for only $1050 (including 5 yr warranty)

    I was leaning towards the dell u2412M for a while as what I thought was the best deal but I think I may hold out and keep shopping. I never got thee 100% good to buy vibe from it so I passed on it.

    The main reason is I don't want to buy a great monitor from someone who lives in Korea off of eBay! The same monitor tech is supposed to be released in the USA by LG later this year. I'd rather buy local if possible in case something goes wrong. Or at minimum buy from Newegg etc.
