I currently have two Raptor X's and a BFG8800GTS (640MB) so no hard drives or graphics cards are neccessary, so i just thought i would check with you guys whether this sounds good or whether different parts should have been chosen?

Cheers

My plan is to upgrade to the new edition GTX as and when it is released, i figured there was no point buying a new GT or GTS just yet, hopefully it will be okay till they are released

Right now i have them in Raid 0, they are fantastic as far as speed goes but they can be a tad noisy at times!

I see. I'm hoping to go 2x/3x Raptor X's in raid0 for my new build. Would need to have plenty of sound dampening though. (i.e Sitting outside on my roof)

I'd love to get a 30" Dell. I have a 2407 and it's great.

Well i decided i dont work hard for no reason, and as i am still living at home i thought i'd treat myself to one, i spend enough time at the computer i'd may as well be fully immersed, haha :)

Bank Manager may not approve though :)

Edit -- Will be a slight upgrade from my Dell 2001 20in ^^

It certainly will be. I upgraded from two 226bw's and I'd have the Dell every single time. It just screams quality, from the panel and stand, to the amount of connections.

Every time someone on here mentions a 30inch Dell, I always consider getting one. Although you would need a brute of a machine to run it for gaming. That and a fear of a dead pixel or two.

(hope I'm not clogging up your thread)

Not clogging up my thread at all, its fine :)

I've wanted one from when they were released (When it wasn financially possible for me!) and now i can afford to..

Dont mention dead pixels though, that would be just my luck :)
