FYI: You will need a 120 mhz monitor for 3d. Sony has some 240 mhz units on display at CES . . . sweet stuff. You are going to love that 3d stuff. I had an Asus Pt6 and 940 in the globe . . .people loved it

That is some hardware I have been holding out bigtime for. 120Mhz for first person shooters. Bring it on. :)

Is that 240hz interpolation?
TN , PVA or IPS panels?

Updated my original post to reflect total cost and all parts in my new rig.

Note however that a lot of parts like speakers, mice, and keyboard are from previous rig.

Monitor and 3D glasses are going to be sweet!

why did you go with the 940 over the 920?

My dad got a 960 Extreme and server motherboard so I got his 940 and his motherboard for free, otherwise I would have gotten the 920.

Everything's still in its box. I'm waiting for that damned Zalman CPU fan so I put my system together.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, I won't have any time to play with it because my grandmother died yesterday, the day after my 25th birthday. She had advanced dementia for a few years now, so it's not much of a shock to me. I'm actually glad that she'll have some peace.
