No worries it was merely a reminder
Now if you had said specifically a 23" screen I would have suggested the very one that you have
At the end of the day the final decision will be yours to make but consider how much you are going to spend on all of the other high end components, will you within a couple of days of getting the build up and running think I should have spent the extra $50 and got the 24" display - not an easy question for you to answer at the moment!
The one minor thing that I do like about the 24" screen is the stand as opposed to that of the 23".
Also I thought you should all know that your positively awesome.
Thank you from us all
I like the appearance of the 24" model a bit better, I think I'd be happy with either. I haven't used a large screen monitor for any extended period of time so I can't really say from experience if I'd notice the inch difference in screen space. But for now we'll just assume that I'm shooting for the larger of the two (I happen to like the stand on the 24" too) and if I have to pinch pennies later, though I don't think I'll need to, I can downgrade to the 23" and save 50 bucks. However I think I'd look at getting a smaller capacity HDD before I downgraded the monitor.
...and I'm kicking myself because I misspelled "you're". >.< Oh well.
Just a quick update as far as price goes (assuming the PSU is in the $130 range) this build will probably be around $1700 which was right where I wanted it to be. With a bit of bargain hunting and a few lucky sales when it comes time to purchase I may even be able to build it for around $1500 like I originally wanted to do, though I won't be able to tell for sure as I can not get a straight forward price estimate until the i5-3570 comes out on the 29th.
