Ok. 30 inch monitors are usually only good if you have a big enough GC usually a 512MB GC in either SLI or Crossfire. They are generally used for people who do video editing or some seriously hardcore gaming. They are really expensive, in the thousands. If I were you I would look at a 20-27 inch wide screen by Dell. How deep is your pocket ($$$)? What kind of GC do you have? What other size monitors have you looked at?

You'd be better off with a small HDTV of the same size and price (if not lower) than a 30 Inch moniter. Most HDTV's can be used as PC moniters anyway. Cheapest 30" Moniter on Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176071 ViewSonic 32" HDTV http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889116003 About half the price...

True. A Dell 30 inch monitor goes for about 2200-2500 dollars. They require a MASSIVE GC combo (SLI or Crossfire). You can probably get a 46 inch widescreen LCD HDTV for about the same price.

But a 30 inch HDTV doesn't have nearly as high a quality or resolution as a 30 (or hell, even a 19) inch monitor does. HDTV's do not make great monitors.

Here's the Dell 27 inch for just over $1000. http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=222-7315

You would be better off getting a 20-27 inch widescreen rather than a 30 inch.

Cost, reason, other choices. They are expensive and they require a MASSIVE Graphics Card setup. 2-4 512MB GCs. So not only is the monitor 2000 dollars but the graphics card setup and anything else you must put together to support it requires 500+ dollars. So in total it could cost up to or more that 3500 dollars thats in a conservative stand point. Thats depending on what your current setup.

I guess if your computer setup is good enough to handle the strain of the monitors resolution.
