    nice

    so we bought this for 540 shipped, less 150 mail in rebate
    and an acer 17" lcd for 160 shipped

    the acer lcd did not want to work in 800x600
    so i had to update geforce drivers and the same for the monitor to get it down to 800x600
    the office lady is older and the 1280x1024 hurt her eyes or something...

    my 15" lcd won't go about 1024x768 and i have no idea what the problem is, when i push it past that it shows a blue box and says out of range

    fucking junk

    DAMN! Too bad i wasnt on earlier. CompUSA just put out a Compaq (HP, Good quality) for $350 with an AMD 3500+ and 512mb RAM with a 17" CRT that would smoke that Celeron.
