I was nub back in december but slowly became a force. It all started with changing the fan in my asus laptop when it died. After that i watched a **** load of linus tech tips and spent months specking out this build and seeing what goes with what and i$ it worth it. I had a budget of about 2000 with the monitor. And here i am. really happy. With rhino open, photoshop and a bunch of webpages playing video a use about 20 of my ram (max)

When it was all said and down it did not work? I trouble shot and was like wtf! I thought it was the monitor or the cables : displayport etc. It turns out that the boys at micro center sold me a defective mobo. I have nothing against asus. I guess that is why you buy at a brick and mortar store because warranties and returns are so much easier. Since i bought it from them they swapt everything out and refund me the diagnostic fee. What a mission this MC i go to is about 1 hr away each way. Go figure. I spent about 6-8 in traffic specking parts, buying, returning and picking up.

All in all I am happy with the screen. I bought straight from dell and they waived the shipping. I already had a pair of genelec 6010a monitors. If you know about genelec, then you know that each of those will set you back 400 bucks. The case was a steal at 60. I highly recommend it. I have seen the obsidian c70 and think its overRated. I went with 140x2 to get the max airflow through my hard drives and to my gpu. I did the mistake of going with faster ram. You are better offer getting 2100 speed. The mother board doesn't recognize the stock speed and i have to overclock them. Sometimes the OC'ing fails and it restarts. hegh, next time i'll listen.
Future upgrades will be maybe an sli or a better chip in a few years.

I use this for 3dxMax, autocad, several Rhino's at time, adobe suit, premier, scripting/coding and some googlePac-man
