Its not as bad I'll admit, but its still glossy, I like matte screens, and prefer anti-glare ones. Not sure what technology are you talking about.

 

Personally I find the iMac overpriced for the feature set, but thats my opinion. The display alone shouldn't cost as much, its ~$700 (or less), so charging $2500 for the hardware is bit extreme IMO.

Still, I liked the iMac screen and bought a 27" monitor from Dell. The resolution is awesome, tons of space, and the IPS panel really shines when it comes to color reproduction. Its factory calibrated. Using it with another 21.5" 1080p screen.

 

My complete setup:

Core i7 3770k OC 4.5GHz.

8GB 1600MHz RAM

MSI Radeon 7850 2GB DDR5

Gigabyte Z77U3DX Motherboard

Corsair Force GT 64GB SSD

WD Caviar Black 1TB

WD Caviar Blue 1TB

Antec P280 Silent Chasis

Noctua NHD14 Cooler

2xNFP12 Intake Fans

27" Dell U2713HM

21.5" Samsung P2250

Ducky Mechanical Keyboard (Cherry MX Blue)

 

OS: Linux (Primary)  + Win 7 (Occasional Gaming)

No, we're drifting way off topic anyways.

The 27" UltraSharp from Dell costs $850.
The 27" Cinema Display costs $1000.

The Mac Cinema display includes a camera, Thunderbolt and pre-calibrated, easily covering that gap in pricing. They're easily the same quality. There shouldn't be any discussion about this.


Anyways, I have incoming

i5-3570K
Phanteks PH-TC14PE
120GB Intel 520
AsRock Z77 Extreme4
ASUS GTX 670

to fit inside my Fractal R3. It's going to be a black and white rig, hopefully. Need to find white SATA cables XD

Nevermind, ignore this quote. Any delete buttons -.-, can't seem to find one?

I got mine for $650 from Dell during their Christmas deals, pre calibrated. 

And yes, I'll end the digression here.

From what I've heard, I wouldn't touch an LC-Power PSU with a barge pole.

Just upgraded from my super old original Thermaltake Armor(with original window side panel minus fan) to the Corsair 600T.  Threw some arctic silver 5 on the cpu finally, got the fan in a push config(instead of pull) and temps dropped 3-5C idle.  After start up the cpu was 30C but now with foobar2000, firefox and a couple other programs running it keeps going between 32-33C.  The biggest deal about this is my case no longer has 2 88cfm 40db 120mm fans running, making music SOOO much more enjoyable to listen to now!

 

It's an old rig so the specs aren't the latest and greatest, but it still runs just fine for me.

 

Intel C2D Wolfdale E8400 3.0GHz

Mushkin 4x1gb DDR2 800

DFI Lanparty DK X38 T2R

EVGA GTX 460 SE

Thermaltake 680W PSU

WD Caviar 640GB Black Edition w/ 32mb cache

WD Caviar 1TB 5400rpm Green Drive(storage/backup)

Some NEC CD/DVD burner drive(I forget)

Samsung SyncMaster 940B 19" LCD screen

Logitech G500 mouse

Func 1030 classic surface mouse pad

Logitech G510 Keyboard

 

Note: some of this hardware(PSU, DVD burner, LCD) are from the original build which was over 5 years ago, and still work great, so they have not been replaced.  Though I'd like to get a modular PSU when I get the chance.

post #1735 of 2070
My new (re)build is finally complete.

Intel 520 Series 120GB
Intel i5-3570K

That's a freakishly high overclock, what does your cooling setup look like?

post #1738 of 2070

Never comes close to overheating; always runs within spec. Ignore the GTX 295, the photo is rather old.

Basically, it is a huge Thermalright heatsink with copper block and multiple heat pipes. With two fans attached, it's nearly as good as a water cooler for mid-high end overclocks.
