GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2 Intel Core i5-750 G.SKILL 4GB DDR3 1600 Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Rewritable Drive Black SATA Model AD-7240S-0B Cheapo Rosewill ATX mid tower and 530W power supply Total= $550 I bought 2 NEC EA231wmi 23inch IPS displays. Arrange them in portrait mode side by side for a 2160x1920 display. IMHO more practical than a 27inch iMac in wide format. The 1920 of vertical pixel goodness is awesome. My total for this rig was just over $1200 including shipping costs. For that I have a mac equivalent to the 27" i5 iMac with more total screen pixels in an arrangement optimized for coding. Saving around a thousand dollars is quite satisfying and this is a great upgrade from my previous mac, a mac mini. If anyone is curious about the NEC EA231wmi as a great display compliment to your builds, I can answer questions.
