Noticed my case in there. I really like that case a lot. The moveable hard drive rack is a god send. Also love my Acer Aspire One. Good to see it in there as well. Great guide.

 In my opinion this 24" acer monitor is a far better buy than the ones mentioned in the article: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009154

Thanks for the article. Some really nice products were mentioned, like the Cooler Master ATCS 840 case! :) I want to try that case out.

Nice list! I'd love to get my hands on that 30" Dell monitor. But I have to be happy with what I've got. btw, I have the Corsair 750 TX power supply...it's worked great for me.

All, we've updated the guide to include a Core 2 Quad chip, nForce 790i motherboard and a new Lenovo IdeaPad lappy. Check it out. We thought we had a couple of small holes to fill there. :)

 Where's the love for HTPC/Media boxes? Stick out tongue jk jk.....you would probably be able to write a 20 page article if you appealed to all spectrums of the PC world hmm?

Lotsa fun stuff that I will definitely not be able to afford Cool good read though
