    Hi CW.

    Was just going to say, Keep an eye on the Dell deals that keep popping up when your wanting a base unit, There are some cracking deals recently like here

    As for the monitors, I haven't got a clue, Sorry, LG Philips and Samsung are both good makes though.

    This one by far, I have the 226bw and I can confrim that it is by far the greatest monitor I have owned and i have had dell, illayma and lg. The colours and sharpness are secodn to none. Do you mean the 226bw though?

    Yes, sorry -226bw

    Thought i would get the monitor first now as i am still debating on building my own computer - all ones on ebay seem to have cheap motherboards and not much room for updating in the future !

    I'm not being nasty, but wouldn't it have been better to just create one thread with all your questions?

    Original Poster

    Not sure ! just said it was not integrated at all .

    Is it an ebay auction?

    Original Poster

    Its not -but he does sell on ebay -zoom computers .
    Also could have this one for another £10 (with 1gb ram and 160 hd) and its core 2 but not such a good motherboard ! item no 160137377764

    That ebay one has the a E6600 processor which I believe is better than the first one.

    Original Poster

    Yes, the processor is better but not sure about the motherboard?

    Its an Asus by the look of it, and its a Micro ATX so you wont be ablet o use SLI graphics cards in it, but apart from that I cant see what you personally lose by getting it.

    Having said that they do say that pictures are for illustrative purposes only, so you may not get an Asus board.

    What graphics card will it take ?
    Thanks

    Original Poster

    bump please -wanted to know what graphics card i can use please.

    you dont need to bump your posts every hour....

    Original Poster

    Thats not an answer though- bump now then after 4 hours!!!!

    Is the motherboard PCI-e or AGP?, Or is that what your trying to find out?

    To sort of throw a spanner in the works, This monitor looks a great price : hotukdeals.com/for…792

    The Samsung is by far the best of those.

    Here is a link to a 48 page thread all about this monitor from overclockers.

    forums.overclockers.co.uk/sho…111

    I have just ordered this from Ebuyer:

    ebuyer.com/cus…386

    Identical specs to the Samsung and nearly £50 cheaper!!!

    overclockers.co.uk/sho…l=3 Decent reviews and also you dont have the Panel lottery of the Samsung with the 3 different grades of panel.

    Hi,
    Thanks everyone-went to look at samsung one today -was very impressed until the guy in PC world knocked a switch and couldn't get the pic back on and had to fetch someone (a female too -who sorted it out)
    Also have been considering the same lg one posted above from ebuyer. Thats a good point though about the panels -knowing my luck i would end up with the worst grade !
    Have to make a decision very soon !!!!
