Now this is a sexy looking monitor, that definitely stands out from the crowd!
Acer is a well known and well trusted make, in all my years ive purchased many products from them and I can honestly say I've never been let down so it gets my approval on that factor!
Over the past few years, the average screen size on just about everything has become bigger and bigger, at twenty four inches this screen is not classed as huge anymore but is still above average and to be proud of.
It has a high screen resolution of 1920 x 1200 at 60 mhz, and a contrast ratio of 50000:1, both of which are very good so your games , videos and pictures will never have looked better!
This screen is perfect for anyone who is looking for a good looking screen, with the assurance of quality. The HDMI, DVI-D and VGA connectors mean you can plug just about any high definition toy you have in , weather its your swanky sky HD box, desktop PC, lap top, or gaming console!
Its only downside is the price but, come on, look at it, wouldn't that just look lovely on your desk, your mates would be impressed I assure you.
This is an attractive monitor by a well known make. The 'heavy' piano black finish gives it that expensive quality look and feel. the quality of the make ensures you get the reliability you have paid for and the assurance that if anything dose go wrong your covered by the manufactures guarantee.
Its HUGE screen size is daunting, playing a game on this, is more than an event! Coupled with its very high resolution 1920 x 1080 which is beyond the call of High definition, your games have never looked better. The monitor also comes with surprisingly good speakers built in but as always with these, its advised to still use your own as after all it's a monitor not a speaker system. The low response time of 5ms ensures that your movies and games don't appear to be blurry, and when combined with the HDMI input capability and a dynamic contrast ratio of 20000:1 it's nothing short of beautiful.
I would recommend this to any serious gamer and graphic designer, or to anyone who can afford to splash out on this, go on, treat yourself.
The 8800 Series cards, despite there age are still a top end card. They are not the ultimate top end any more since the arrival of the 9x series of cards Nvida recently released but it is definitely something to brag about.
Being in the top end of the Nvida line, it supports up to 16X AF and AA (astronomical filtering and anti aliasing) which is the highest currently available for a desktop pc for gaming applications.
The card is rock solid in terms of reliability; I have punished my card for over a year and has not once let me down. Of course ice had games and 3d applications crash more times that what I consider fair, but has never been due too hard wear failure on the card's court.
Installation was a breeze, a simple 'plug and play'. The software and drivers went in very easily, although a word of warning, this card is very large at 10.5 inches, so check you can fit this thing in your case before you buy!
The card is pleasingly quiet as its fan does not make too much noise at all, although to compensate for this the card has a huge heat sink that covers the whole length of the card. It dose also produce a large amount of heat which is dispersed out of the back of the card and not in to your system case but be cautious that you have sufficient case cooling.
The card is worth every penny in my opinion but do have a look at the nvida competitors for the same amount, you might just find something better.
