It's happened to me a couple times on update, I think even on Vista, but not every time. I had 7 just lose visual effects on its own, and then come back on its own less than a minute later. Dunno. At least you know what to do if it happens again...of course next time it'll be something different.

I'm thinking I'll get a new monitor so I can give my sister this 24" Dell Ultrasharp. I would be sad to give her a nice computer only to have her use it with a crappy monitor. Do you think I should stick with Dell, and if so, what model 24" or over should I be looking at? Color accuracy would be nice, but I suppose gaming performance and input options would weigh more into my decision. Also, how common is LED backlighting in computer monitors?

I rather like my HP LP2475w (I think that's the number), but I've never used it for gaming. You'll probably need a color calibrator to get any sort of color accuracy, but those can be had for $150 or so.

I think I'm going to be getting this monitor:

Dell UltraSharp U2711

Besides waiting a deal on that specific model, does anyone know of discounts or coupons that are actually meaningful? There's a 10% discount from work, but when you log in to take advantage of the discount, the prices are different, sometimes even being more expensive after the discount than if I just order normally. I don't have the information right now to log in to check on this particular monitor, but I'll get it again and see what figure comes out.

I just wanted to resurrect this thread to brag.

Finally ordered my dual 2.4 GHz Six-Core CPUs, and 32 GB of DDR2-800 RAM. It'll all arrive on Tuesday, June 29th. \:D

Here's hoping it's delayed a day and you don't get it until the 30th! Take that!

Ha! Showed you, my 6-Cores arrived up today.



Also went from 2.1 GHz to 2.4 GHz per core. Is it any faster? Can't really notice. The real question is: is it any more insane?

Do some ripping, file conversion, or encoding and you should notice it smile
