Uh! What's wrong with OCZ PSUs? I've not seen a bad review at all of OCZ PSUs.

The reviews may be fine, but going from what i see on online forums (stories), MANY people have issues with 'em. Products generally rarely have issues in reviews because they are not under the stress of being used day in and day out for years.

I'd say that the 3GB 580 is massive overkill for a 1900x1080 24" monitor. If games start requiring that amount of VRAM in the next few years, most of us won't be able to play them. You could SLI a couple of 570s for that money (maybe get one now and another later to lessen the financial sting?).

So tell me what kind of monitor would be appropriate for this kind of power?

It's more that the extra memory you're paying for will likely rarely be used. If you go for a bigger, higher rez monitor then it may well be, but then your card will be obsolete sooner as it won't be able to keep pushing those higher resolutions with its processing power. If you really want a GTX580 (and I can't blame you!), I'd go for one of the standard 1.5GB ones and SLI it later.

Check out the graph on page 3 of this:

http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/Guid...formance-guide

and

http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,8...ested/Reviews/

The GTX590 performance is likely somewhere between SLI 570 and SLI 580.

I'd rather gamble on a lower spec card now and use what I've saved towards the next upgrade (such as adding another to SLI) than spend more now and need to replace it anyway.

Besides, spending 500 when your budget is 350 is nuts

I would have to agree with this. I think a 24 inch full resolution monitor is more than enough, and for that, a 570 should work very well.

Asus have a new 27 3D monitor coming out soon....hang on I'll look it up

EDIT: Here ya go...a little pricey for a TN. I'll never go back to anything less than a 120Hz monitor, maybe one day there will be an IPS @ 120Hz.
