    Now I remember why I gave up of researching panels....

    No, for colour definition it goes H-IPS (LP2475W) = S-IPS (U2410) > S-PVA > E-IPS (2209WA) > TN. For response time it goes E-IPS > H-IPS = S-IPS > TN > S-PVA. It's confusing because of all the subrevisions of IPS.

    So yes, in a way you are right, but the LP2475W is NOT an E-IPS panel. It's H-IPS.

    Oops I meant H-IPS like the new Dell 24" U2410 and the LP2475W. The LP2475W is still a better monitor:

    http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2410.htm

    OTH, the equivalent 22" S-PVA panel to the 2209WA which is the HP LP2275W is inferior.

    Of course the electronics in the monitor are important as is calibration. IIRC,the 2009WA is not that well calibrated out of the factory and sometimes calibrated screens lack the "punch" some people expect from their displays.

    So you'd rate the 2209WA (E-IPS) over the 2233RZ (TN) for response time? I find that rather unbelievable. TFT Central seems to show ghosting is pretty much non-existent at 120Hz.

    I was generalising. And I understand it 120Hz panels don't use TN panels where they have just "cranked up the frequency." This is espically aparrent when you realise they about twice as much as their 60Hz equivelents.

    60Hz TNs certainly seem to love aggressive RTC so I guess it's fair enough for those.

    Re: New i5/i7 build

    Didnt really want to spend around £200 just on a moniter, so are there any other suitable moniters that are £150 and under.

    For the RAM I'd go for the G.Skill Ripjaws (F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL) at Novatech over the ones you've chosen, and save around £10. Lower voltage too, which can only be a good thing.

    Short answer: No.

    Long answer: Yes, but... Well I covered most of it above.

    If you can afford the extra £50 it's worth it. If not... Borrow £50 off someone.

    Eeeep! that G.Skill memory has gone up about £5-10
    The CAS9 used to be £76
    Looking at the current prices this is the best one/value

    And yes that xfx 4870 was £75 a couple of hours ago, it's £90 now
