Here are the specs I've curretly picked for a new Dell T3400 Workstation....
Considering I'm a moderate user (no huge assemblies) how does it look?

I currently don't have a monitor picked, but am planning on a 22" widescreen.
The one offered from dell is:
Ultrasharp 2208 FPW VGA/DVI w/adj stand
($339 w/system, but on sale for $275 when pur separatly)
Reviews I read were mixed.....Anyone have comments on this monitor for SW?

System Details:

Inteltm Core®2 Duo E6550 (2.33GHz/1333MHz/4MB L2) 525W
Genuine Windows® XP Professional, SP2 with Media
PCIe x16 nVidia Quadro FX1700, Dual Monitor DVI Cable
Mini-Tower Chassis Configuration
2GB, 800MHz, DDR2 SDRAM Memory, ECC (2 DIMMS)
16X DVD+/-RW w/ Cyberlink PowerDVDtm and Roxio Creatortm Dell Ed

80GB SATA, 10K RPM Hard Drive with 16MB DataBurst Cachetm
No Monitor
NTFS File System
My Accessories
USB Entry Quietkey, No Hot Keys
Dell USB 2-Button Mechanical Mouse with Scroll

(Cost w/o monitor is $1,822)

One thing I'm not familiar with are the "Raid" choices and whether they can be changed later.
