Gaming rig for friend. Make sense?view story

http://hardforum.com – This is the 4th machine I will build for this good friend of mine. Last one made it 6 years (still going actually!) A new record! This new rig will be build with the following in mind: GPU and SSD (m.2) upgrade down the line. Plus a new monitor at some point, most likely 27" 2560x1440. Main doubts are SSD and Cooler. Also is it a good idea to buy now and not in mid December? (Hardware)

Does a 13" 1080p IPS DVI monitor exist?view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – I'm looking for an ultra portable second monitor for my laptop. I would ideally like it to be 13" and 1080p with an IPS panel. It needs to get the video signal from DVI though - it can't be one of those USB Displaylink monitors like the Asus MB168B+ because DisplayLink is proprietary and doesn't work on Linux. Anything out there that fits this description? (Hardware)
