Ok, again thanks for the help. Switched to Crucial Memory (Thanks Hance, though I will hold you personally responsible if it sucks
) And two 19 monitors rather than the one 20.1. At least this way I can have a matched pair and is what I really intended to do from the start. Plus the faster response time and ratings were quite favorable, though I always take sales site ratings with a grain of salt.
For $311 you can't beat the specs

Oh, and I decided to toss in another $10 to get the things a little faster. I always forget that they are based all over the country and I would like them all at once rather than scattered.
So for $2100, I have a complete new dual-core dual monitor system that will crank out folding units and my work at a decent pace. Oh, and probably play UT4 fairly well too. I am pretty pshyched as I haven't built my own system in about 5 years now, favoring cheap all in one boxes.
I wonder how much $$$ I should ask for my old 19 inch CRT monitor, $20, $30? Nah, probably going to give the whole system to my parents, I owe them...
BTW I shy from overclocking since in the not so distant past I had a processor and video card cook themselves over time. They were stable up to a point, and then just wouldn't post. This was after a year of continuous operation and cleaning, so I figured that overclocking was thermally stressing the parts and aging them too fast. I figure I will go for the good deals on price, although we have had this policy at work inthe past:
If you don't burn your finger on it, you are not getting your money's worth!
