Re: Shopping for a new 22-23inch monitor right now

if you can wait until end of year, dell.ca has some pretty good boxing day deals. i got a similar monitor (P2411HB) for around $190 with taxes and free shipping last year. obviously monitor prices have gone significantly lower since then: http://accessories.dell.com/sna/products/Monitors_Flat_Panel_...

even a midrange GPU like the GeForce 460 GTX requires 2x 8-pin PCI-e power... why doesn't seasonic include 2 plugs? 400W could easily power a 460 GTX...maybe seasonic rep can answer this.
