    8 per channel.
    2^8 * 2^8 * 2^8 = 256 * 256 * 256 = 16 777 216
    6 per channel.
    2^6 * 2^6 * 2^6 = 64 * 64 * 64 = 262 144


    I really should get around to finishing my monitor/screen FAQ and guide. :P

    Ah, that explains it, I was trying to think why you guys would be saying that those IPS panels had the same colour range as a game-boy advanced :/

    I'm actually operating this beauty from my bed :P Perfect for watching movies, shows, playing games or browsing the web. Distance should be something like 1.5m/2m.

    Sidewindow, lot's of blue fans > http://i50.tinypic.com/2m6miyf.jpg

    And yes I know it's messy.

    Smooth isn't good enough for some people, also if you have more than one monitor, or use something like a 2560*1440 or 2560*1600 27 inch or higher screen one graphics card isn't enough to get high FPS at ultra settings.

    Varies. You certainly give up smooth when you get more GPUs though. (Read: Microstutter. Although people react to that in varied amounts. I couldn't stand a friend who ran CFX with 6850s...)

    Nvidia has improved the microstutter aspect a lot with the 600 series though.

    Both teams improved it a lot, but it's still present. The 690 tried a new thing, but that basically did nothing useful it seems.

    When I got my TDRL (Medical Military stuff) money from the Marine corps I wanted instant gratification instead of waiting for a more powerful Gaming PC to be delivered. So I went to Best Buy and got the best thing I could find.

    HP Elite

    AMD Phenom II 1055T Six Core Processor
    8GB DDR3
    AMD Radeon HD 6570 upgraded to Nvidia Geforce GTX550ti
    1.5TB

    LG Flatron IPS236 23" LED Monitor (Main/Game monitor)
    Basic flat screen HP monitor 17" (Stream/Browser monitor)

    Razer Lycosa
    Razer Naga
    Crappy Trittons, the White ones with red logo and extremely sensetive mic. :P

    http://techreport.com/articles.x/22890/5 Nvidia has a lot better frame times in some of the games according to that test.

    I've seen another report like that before but I can't seem to find it.

    Your link is... curious to say the least. I was going to comment that their choices in games were providing a pretty bias POV, but somehow they've wound up with HD 7970s actually crowning the performance in Battlefield 3. That is odd. I'm gonna have to read more into this particular test.
