Chris,

The HDD is Still NOT Correct. You Chose SAS HDDs. They have to be SATA !!

$500 will buy you best Video Graphics Card (More than you need).

Your monitor needs to be IPS for true color and that will be a bit more expensive than run of the mill monitors.

All the 1155 MBs support Dual Video - (1) card @ x16 OR (2) Cards @ x8
To get (2) Cards @ x16, you would have to move up to 2011 MB which becomes very expensive very Fast !!!!

Ask Moderator for my E-mail address. :)

I don't know how to ask the moderator for your email address. I'm ashamed to say I'm new at forums as well.
I'll keep the mobo, see if I can spring for the $500 graphics card and start looking for a monitor.
You've been a great help.

Do you think New Egg is going to have a good Labor Day sale?
