I use my PC mainly for internet, email and games (mostly Flight Simulators), hardly for foto/videoprocessing and not at all for watching movies. I want to upgrade my PC with a P45 or X48 board, Quad 8200 CPU, 4GB DDR3, and grafics ATI 4870 or GF 9800GTX+.
I also want to buy a 24" or a 26" TFT Monitor. I heard the 26" screens might give problems in viewing angle when seated at a normal distance. Who has experience with 26" TFT's? And what would be a good choice concerning this upgrade? (As to TFT's, prices allow only TN-type screens). Thanks a lot.
24 inch screens are the right size for full hd (1920x1080) while 26 inch usually run at 1366x768 so 24 would be best. Heres a great 24" monitor with built in digital tv click here|category_root|Home+entertainment+and+sat+nav|10199181/c_2/2|cat_10199181|Televisions|10199303/c_3/3|cat_10199303|14+inch+to+24+inch+LCD+TVs|10199312.htm
about a year ago i upgraded from 2 21" screens to a 24" widescreen. it took a while to get used to for normal tasks and gaming, simply because it's huge, great for tv and movies, but even now the brightness and contrast are set to 15%. so i wouldnt concider a 26" too big IMHO. also playing games at full settings @1900 x 1200 resolution pushes a factory overclocked 280gtx a little, there is a notable increase in frames with sli.
