    Wonder if that's 9 pounds with the stand, because it doesn't feel like 9 pounds at all lol.

    To put things in perspective, I'm pretty sure my Gateway is at least 20 pounds. :P

    When it comes to monitor stands it varies wildly what you're getting. I ordered two wall-mounts for Christmas as a gift to a friend of mine, and they were like $15 a pop, and when we received them it was clear that the wall was going to cave in before the arms did.

    So I found the monitor on Amazon and Newegg: http://www.amazon.com/Gateway-HD2201...gateway+hd2201

    Apparently it is about 15 pounds, judging from both sites. Amazon says 13, but I call bull on that! Besides, I think it still makes the point, the stand can hold up something pretty heavy, so you need not worry!

    Also, I always thought it was a really nice monitor with nice vibrant colors, and when compared to the ASUS AH-IPS it sure looks similar, based on a lot of the reviews and such, sounds like it was one of the better monitors around back in 2008! I knew there was a reason I had not yet replaced it. ;p Gateway receives +2 Credibility by Deltrus.

    I personally wouldn't go with 3. But I would do 2. Having the 3 in his pic like that would seem like they would run really warm.

    They probably do, considering they have reference coolers on them. =|

    Which is kind of the thing for SLI. You know, blower design and all. Note that those are not hawaii series gpu's.

    That is still stupidly heavy. D:

    Also that VESA one you linked, would you recommend it cost to build quality? I fall into the paranoia category. D:

    The Rival looks like my Sensei only it looks like the top is a matte finish rather then glossy like mine is. They are good mice, I just wish the side buttons on the Sensei were a bit larger, which is what the Rival has.

    I was certainly skeptical before I got it, as well! I mean really, $40 for a dual monitor stand when places like Newegg have them for usually $80+? Surely this is a load of bull! I found that my dreams came true. While the mount might lean just a little bit, I think most would. Especially considering my 15~ pound monitor! But were you to use two thin-frame monitors like my Acer S211HL at 6 pounds? It would probably shine even more.

    I've had the thing now for almost a year and it is showing no signs of wear!

    Alright, nice. I'll get it when I can.

    That SSD reminds me of my first on, the M4 128GB one. It's like nostalgia, even if it was only a year ago.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure I will be ordering that stand here shortly. Really really want to get that and another monitor to have a dual monitor setup. Probably in a week or two. Have the money. But don't want to splurge out of what I have saved already, quite yet at least.
