    Those are really nice monitors.

    <-- Would like one. 17" @ 1280x1024x60Hz isn't that great

    I'm having major hassles with XP running dualmon, so I'm gonna give 2k a go today. it's going on my new system I got last week:

    Asus motherboard P4 1.6 (sweet fast boot time)
    512 DDR RAM
    2 USB 1 and 2 USB 2 slots
    40 GB hd (think it's 7200 speed)
    24x10x40 CD-RW drive
    ATI AIW Radeon card, video in, out, 5.1 support, 32MB DDR RAM
    nvidia Vanta 16MB PCI card for 2nd monitor
    2 17" mitsubishi monitors
    Sound Blaster Live 5.1 audio card
    250 MB zip drive
    Linksys 4 port router

    the box is sitting next to my dependable gray Mac G3 (which is what I've been using to access tribe!)

    it'll be a sweet system when I get it working. I'm not sure what your internet connection is, but I use sympatico hs, and by having the router I've noticed about a +20k speed increase and access manager isn't required anymore. if you're looking for another upgrade maybe there's an option for ya. :)

    atomic, what kind of Asus motherboard is that?
    And is that a Northwood P4 you got? (1.6A?)

    da MiGHTy pLUm! TRIBE Member

    Yeah, I was using the 775FT at work for a bit, and that convinced me that I had to get the 915 for myself. It cost about $500 at WinTel computers

    the box says it's a P4B266-C... I'm afraid I don't know if that means anything, but it says it's upgradeable to 2.2 GHz and it's Northwood ready.
