SGI or Sony? 17.3 Wide Or 22.5 Wide


Recommended Posts

Well I'm stumped. My PCHT is coming along nicely now. But I'm stuck on figuring which monitor to get, I'm preety much set on the following:

SGI 1600SW 17.3 Widescreen Flat Panel LCD With Digital Connections = 1500.00 USD


Sony GDM-FW900 22.5 Widescreen Flat CRT

With BNC Connections = 1900.00 USD

What do you guys recommend, any experience?

My Current Setup Is A Follows:

Old POS Case

Old POS 333 Board w/128 Ram & Riva TNT2 M64

Midiland ADS-2000 Digital Decoder

Pioneer 16x DVD 105s Slot Drive

Creative 8x4x32 CDRW Blaster Drive

3 Sets Of Klipsch 2.1's (Center, Front, Rear)

Sigma Designs Hollywood+ Mpeg-2 Decoder

Philips Acoustic Edge Sound Card

Real Magic Remote Control

Intellimouse Optical

I plan to finish my pcht by getting:

Coolermaster ATC-201 Case = 250.00

Hauppage HDTV Tuner Card = 400.00

IBM 75GXP 75GB Hard Drive = 275.00

Athlon 1.33 Ghz Motherboard = 150.00

Athlon 1.33 Ghz Processor = 230.00

512 Mb DDR 266 Mhz Ram = 450.00

Geforce2 Or 3 = 250.00-450.00

PS: And yes I've heard every waste of money comment in the world. As I said, I live at home, computer science major, so my computer is always a plus, and I have 2 1/2 year old niece running around all day so a big screen tv just aint working. Peace to you all.

Take a sheet of newspaper and fold to the diminision of the 24" Sony, for $2400, the SGI 1600SW that uses the full 17" diag. for $1400.

Then you can hold and compare the size.

While you at it fold one for a 22" diamondtron tube and consider that you can get a 37"superbrite, 600 lines rez S-VHS monitor, with the change, that's gonna' look a lot better from the couch.

Sorry, I see the sony is only $1900.

After all, it's only till flat plazma display comes down next year.
